Luxury Camping at Wickham

Fancy some luxury camping at Wickham?  For 2014 we’ve teamed-up again with the lovely people at Festival Glamping to offer you the chance to camp in luxury Touareg Canvas tents that sleep up to four people, have large doors, full head room, netted ventilation flaps and come equipped with airbeds, rugs, solar lights and other little luxuries that make them so much more comfortable than camping on rock hard ground.  Have a look at their website www.festivalglamping.com for booking details and prices.  If you’ve already paid £25 for a camping ticket at Wickham, Festival Glamping will give you a £25 discount if you upgrade to a luxury Touareg Canvas tent.  Plus… everyone booking Festival Glamping will also receive exclusive backstage VIP tickets for the whole Festival giving access to the exclusive backstage VIP bar, side-of-stage VIP viewing area and, most important, luxury loos!  And the Glamping Field will have its own ‘Posh Wash’ Showers and Luxury Loos with washing facilities in 2014.
