What is included in the ticket price?
Your Camp Wildfire ticket includes a choice of over 50 activities. You can purchase additional activity group tickets at any time to supplement your Camp 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 campsite, toilets and drinking water taps are included.
When should I arrive and leave?
You may arrive any time from 12:00 on Friday, and the fun starts from 17:30. Activities run all day Saturday and Sunday, then camp over on Sunday night and leave by 12:00 on Monday morning.
How do I choose my activities?
You will be able to enrol in activities through our online booking system in summer. More info about this will be announced nearer the time!
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; if you require their assistance please email us in advance to arrange this.
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 not allowed for safety reasons.
The music line-up will be announced in spring; it’s curated by the multi-award winning team behind LeeFest so you know it’s going to 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.
How can I travel to the site?
Full travel details will be sent out to those that have purchased tickets. the forest 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. Glass will not be allowed into the event site for safety reasons.
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.
Mugs & Water Bottles
Wildfire is a disposable free festival. Please bring a water bottle (for water) and enamel mug (for hot drinks and the bar) with you. We will have Camp Wildfire water bottles (£7) and pint sized Camp Wildfire 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 and appreciate your support in this endeavour.
