A taste of things to come

Up to 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) optional camping is available in 2020. Prices quoted (on the tickets page) are per tent/caravan/motorhome (not per person). Camping tickets do not include access to the music arena, a separate festival ticket is required for every individual. 

Camping is exclusive to festival ticket holders and sells out each year. Everyone camping will require a seperate festival ticket.  Festival tickets will be checked within the campsite (no festival ticket, no camping and you will be asked to leave the campsite). Please organise your camping pitches and festival tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment. 

Campers are welcome from 9am on Friday. Campers must be off-site by 12 noon on Sunday 5th July. 

If you would prefer to be located in a quieter camping area, please purchase a ‘Quiet Camping’ ticket and show to a steward on arrival. We will do our best to separate family/quiet camping and encourage campers to be quiet after midnight but we can’t, however, guarantee absolute quiet.  There will be a security tent positioned in the centre of the campsite if any assistance is required.

The maximum size of any tent is 6 birth. 

The camping facilities are basic.  Toilets with disabled access can be available in the clubhouse. There are a small number of showers available in the clubhouse. But please remember the clubhouse is a rugby club and not a hotel, so facilities are basic.

NO GLASS allowed on site.  Players will be playing rugby on the site soon after the event so it needs to be spotless without risk of glass shards cutting the players. Please dispose of your rubbish responsibly - we will have lots more bins on site this year.

You are welcome to bring your own food and drink into the camping area.  However, you won’t be allowed to bring any drinks (other than babies'/toddlers' bottles) into the music arena.  Bags will be searched on entry into the music arena.  Festival bars are well stocked, so you won’t go thirsty.

No portable BBQs will be allowed on the grass - they must be placed on a solid non-organic surface.

You will not be able to park your car next to your tent in 2020.  There will be a campers' car park a very short walk from the campsite.  Be prepared to carry your tent etc to the plot (1-minute walk).  Please don't be cross with us for this! It's a strict Health & Safety requirement (moving vehicles and excited children don't mix) and is standard for most music festivals of a certian size (unless the venue has unlimited space). If you have mobility issues, please ask to be sited in the accessible camping area.

Please bag any waste and put in bins provided. We'd love for you to leave your plot in the same condition it was in when you arrived on site.

Dogs are allowed on site.  Please be mindful that the festival plays amplified music so don't bring your dog if they get spoked by loud noises. Remember there will be lots of children running around so please keep your dog on a lead at all times.

Camping tickets are limited and in short supply, so head over to the ticket page to buy yours now! 

Please read the Tynedale RFC camping rules (below) before you come. 

Camping at Tynedale RFC.


These rules have been created with our campers and their safety in mind:

  • You are advised to pitch your tent no closer than 6m to the nearest tent due to fire safety.

  • Children are to be supervised at all times, as there is a river and railway line in close proximity to Tynedale Park.

  • Do NOT leave glass, tent pegs or other items on the grass; remember rugby and football players use the Park.

  • Do NOT make open fires or use instant BBQs on the grass.

  • Flammable liquids should not be brought onto the campsite

  • Always keep your dogs under control and on a lead, remove any fouling and dispose of responsibly.

  • Tidy your site when you leave, please take rubbish home with you or use the bins or skip.

  • Please show consideration for other campers and local residents by not causing noise, playing radios/music loudly, etc.

  • There is a speed limit of 10 mph within the club grounds. Please do not exceed this limit and keep to the designated vehicle areas.

  • Please keep leave the toilets and showers clean.

  • If a camper does not show consideration, the Club reserves the right to cancel their booking at which point they will have to leave the campsite. No refund of campsite fees will be made.

  • Never use candles or oil burning appliances in or near a tent, torches are much safer.

  • In large tents, keep cooking appliances away from the walls or roof, or where they can be easily knocked over.

  • Cooking appliances should not be used in tents. EVER! 

  • Do not smoke inside tents.

  • Have an escape plan and be prepared to cut your way out of the tent if there is a fire.

  • Make sure everyone knows how to put out a clothing fire - stop, drop and roll.

Tynedale Rugby Football Club Ltd. accepts no liability for personal injury, damage to property or other loss, save for its legal obligations.

We have a very limited number of showers and sinks available in the clubhouse. Please bear in mind that the clubhouse is a Rugby Club and not a hotel, the facilities reflect that.

There are many portable toilets located around the festival site.  We organise for portable toilets to be serviced twice during the course of the festival (Saturday morning and Saturday late afternoon).  

A perfect overflow campsite can be found at Wellhouse Farm near Corbridge. They accept touring caravans, motorhomes and tents. Situated 4 miles east of Corbridge, this small family run working farm is the ideal place to unwind and view some of Northumbria's most beautiful and historic countryside. Being centrally located in peaceful surroundings, they provide an excellent base from which to discover Hadrian's Wall and other nearby historic houses and castles.
