It is with deep regret that I am having to cancel all camping at BoogieFest. I am so so sorry if this leaves you disappointed or causes a problem to your planning on the festival.
I really thought long and hard about this before making the decision to stop all camping, however I was really left with no other option but to cancel. 

For us to have camping at the Festival I require a security guard to be present throughout the night. I was aware of this at the planning stage BUT what I wasn’t aware of is that I would require 2 security guards. The cost of this for the duration would be £800+
As there is only 3 groups booked in for the camping and at a charge to you of £15 per group this is just not viable for me to do.

I hope you understand and once again I am very sorry for cancelling.

If you would like to stay in a nearby hotel for the festival below is some places for you to look at:

Ibis hotel (3 min car drive or a 10 min walk from the Club)

FOOD ON OFFER FOR THE FESTIVAL ....

I just wanted to let everyone know more about the food that will be on offer for you over the weekend and how it is going to work.

Throughout the day there will be snacks and a selection of sandwiches/rolls from the bar. There will also be a "Meal Deal" set from the club. This will be a drink, Sandwich and snack for a set price.

The Bar will be open all day (alcohol sales to restricted times). There will also be a pop up bar outside selling soft drinks, tea's and Coffee's only.

On Saturday there will be a BBQ served between 6pm-7:30pm. On arrival on Saturday it is advised that you pre-order from the bar what you would like. This will save food waist and also time for prepping the food for you all in readiness for you to collect from 6pm onwards.

On Sunday, it was originally advertised as a Carvery. Unfortunately the club are no longer able to offer this to us. However they have put together a basket meal menu for us and these meals must be pre-ordered. 
So again, on arrival on the Sunday morning, please go to the bar to pre-order your food. This will then be ready for you between 6pm-7:30pm.

ALL ORDERS AND PAYMENTS FOR FOOD ARE TO GO THROUGH THE WALLS CLUB ON THE RELEVANT DAYS AND NOT BEFORE OR VIA BOOGIE SHOES!
