Quote from: Mark, Midlenhall CC
After our first year back to the full three-day format at our new venue in 2017, we are now planning for this year’s Festival.

Compared to previous recent years we were blessed with glorious weather for the whole weekend and everyone that attended went away happy. We have though taken on board the feedback we received from those that stayed on the main camping field and are working with the farmer to improve the state of it.

We have also listened to the feedback about camping at the Festival on the Monday night and we are delighted to announce that from this year you will be able to stay on the Festival site until Tuesday morning.

The dates for this year’s Festival – Saturday 25th – Monday 27th August 2018

We are currently finalising the programme for this year’s Festival and expect to have the Information Leaflets available in time for Easter, at which time the website will be updated too. Both will include booking details for the camping and caravans.


The state of the main camping field was something I gave specific feedback on (for those who weren't there, it was a very stubbly twig-infested field - hazardous to walk on (particularly in the dark), very hard to cycle on and potentially damaging to all but the sturdiest of groundsheets), so it's good to see they've taken that on board.
I do find anything involving ball bearings oddly satisfying

That's good news. Having the option of Monday night is good too.

I really ought to go to this. As I've been saying for the last four years or so.
Pleasure spreads out on the map and the knapsack is full of joy.

The Monday added is excellent news for those of us riding to the event, as attending the Monday activities would otherwise mean cycling off into the sunset afterwards.
I will be missing it this year, off to Shrewsbury instead.

I am hoping to be there but may cycle up just for the day as currently in the early stages of planning a French Foray for the following week.
