Can children attend?
No – this is an over 18s only event. Children get to go on adventures all the time. Wildfire Adventure Camp is a chance for the adults to dance around in the forest like lunatics and sing at the top of their lungs.
What should I bring?
– Cash (Plenty for food, general store, additional activities, hot tubs and bar. There are no cash points in the forest)
– Sleeping bag and tent (If you are not staying in our luxury lodgings)
– Mugs and cups
– Your Wildfire enamel badge (or buy one onsite at the general store)
– Swimwear and towel (in case you are showering or want to relax in the hot tubs)
– Comfortable, warm clothes including a wooly hat for the night-times
– Extra lavatory roll
– Suitable footwear and clothing for activities that you don’t mind getting dirty
– An old analogue camera
– 1950s style camping gear and your patrol colours
– Ukelele or Guitar
What is included in the ticket price?
Activities are categorised into different groups. Your Wildfire ticket includes 2 activities from the GOLD group, 3 from the SILVER group and 3 from the BRONZE group. There will also be activities that are in an open group and you can enrol on an unlimited amount of these. If you wish to attend more activities in a particular group, then you can purchase additional activity group tickets at any time to supplement your Wildfire ticket. Most activity options are included in the ticket price, but a couple might require a small subsidy to cover any materials you take away (for example, a silver smithing workshop). Food and drink are not included, but there are plenty of delicious food options available on site. All entertainment and facilities such as toilets and drinking water taps are included.
When should I arrive and leave?
You may arrive any time from 12pm on Friday, and the fun starts from 5:30pm. Activities run all day Saturday and Sunday, then camp over on Sunday night and leave by midday on Monday morning.
How do I choose my activities?
What facilities are available onsite?
Everything you need for an adventurous and comfortable weekend will be available onsite. Toilets and adventure equipment included.
Can I bring my pets?
Unfortunately this is a human only adventure. Guide dogs are welcome.
Will there be cash machines?
No. Please bring plenty of cash with you, or other things with which to trade.
Can I bring a camping stove or disposable BBQ?
You may bring a gas camping stove as long as the gas bottle is no larger than 240g. Disposable BBQs are allowed but must be kept off the ground. Wildfire will provide fire bricks for this purpose.
The music line-up will be kept top secret, but you can bet your final tuppence that it will be excellent. We have a very eclectic taste and are incredibly passionate about music that rouses the soul and makes people either cry with joy, or want to dance. As a rough guide, the line-up will not include – Boy Bands, 80s Hair Bands, Psy-Trance, K-Pop, Gabba, Pan Pipes or Enya. Soz.
How can I travel to the site?
Full travel details will be sent out to those that have purchased tickets. The location is 40 minutes from London Victoria and train tickets cost approximately £10. There are no discounts for advanced booking on this line.
Do I need a parking permit for a motorcycle?
No – motorcycles can park for free.
Can I bring alcohol with me?
You can bring a maximum of 6 cans of beer OR 1 bottle of wine into the campsite. Spirits are not allowed to be brought into the event. We will stock all the very best, locally brewed drinks at the camp bar. Let’s face it, bringing alcohol to a festival is always a bit of a chore. Trust us.
Can I stay offsite?
We encourage everyone to stay onsite for the full adventure experience. However, if this is not possible, then arrangements can be made for you to stay in a local hotel, or at home if you live nearby.
Do you cater for people with special access requirements?
If you require any support in accessing the event, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements. We will do everything we can to support you in your adventure.
How does the litter bond work?
The litter bond is in place to help encourage everyone to keep Camp Wildfire clean and tidy. Simply put your recycling and litter in a bag and bring it to the box office onsite to re-claim your litter bond of £5. You can reclaim your litter bond between the hours of 18:00 and 22:00 on Sunday and 08:00 and 12:00 on Monday.
MUGS & WATER BOTTLES
Wildfire is a disposable free festival. Please bring a water bottle (for water), enamel mug (for hot drinks) and plastic pint cup (for the bar) with you. We will have steel water bottles (£7) and pint sized enamel mugs (£5) for sale onsite if you do not already have one.
This is inspired by the many great camps we have attended where people own and care for their belongings, and get years of use out of beautiful and quality things; we hope that we can use this to improve the festival experience and move it away from one of careless waste.
Mugs will not be returnable this year, so if you would not like to buy one please bring your own.
