What Is Glampfest?

Back by popular demand, Glampfest is the annual not-for-profit festival by glawning (www.glawning.com) celebrating all things glamping. If you love camping in style come and join us for a weekend to remember. Included in your ticket price you will get all your food for the weekend, funky music and loads of family fun, and any profits go to our official charity (see below). Tents, caravans, campervans and all other portable camping devices are welcome (and dogs too!). 

A small and intimate event with great food and drink and brilliant entertainment. Ticket prices were more than fair. We felt spoilt! 

Andy and Emily

Everything about Glampfest was brilliant; food, drink, entertainment, sunshine, coffee, the company (even the mad ones!), the big cushions!

A fabulous weekend – next one soon please!

Sarah and Adam

Loved everything! Great staff, band, food, drinks. A big thanks to James, his family and team for a top weekend!!

Pete and Sharon

We really enjoyed the whole weekend. There was a really good vibe, lots for the children to do - they have loved it! Great entertainment, drinks were cheap and a great idea to have the food included. Great value for money. Thank you for a great weekend – hope to see you next year!

Mark, Hayley, Thom and Elsie

Great weekend – quick check-in, friendly staff, good value drinks, brilliant music, nice variety at BBQ, wood for sale was helpful, and the setup of the entertainment marquee with cushions was lovely!

The venue, music and food were all fantastic! Loved everything about this festival!

Supporting Candlelighters

Glampfest is a not for profit event held to support the fantastic work of children's charities.

This year our chosen charity is Candlelighters. This extraordinary organisation does amazing work in the local area, supporting children and families of children who are fighting cancer.

We will be donating profits from Glampfest directly to Candlelighters, and there will be additional opportunities for you to support them throughout the event – look out for collection buckets and our brilliant raffle (with AMAZING prizes to be won!) We hope you’ll dig deep for a charity very deserving of your support.
