Where to stay

How to get here

The main events of the weekend take place adjacent to Tewkesbury Town centre, just off the Gloucester Road, on part of the original battle site. Further events take place around the town centre and at Tewkesbury Abbey.

The main site is just 5 minutes walk from the town centre.

Accomodation

With such a large event taking place in a small town, hotels and other accommodation fill rapidly, so early booking is recommended.

We run our own campsite, 5 minutes away from the main festival site, on the main Cheltenham-Tewkesbury bus route. It opens from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. A relaxed campsite with good loos and hot showers included.

£20 per person for the two nights, £10 extra for motorhomes/campers
