May Heydays at Evesham:
Where to stay

Is there camping at or near the festival?

The venue has a large playing field area next door to the school.  We have permission for camping for caravans, motor homes, camper vans and tents.  There are showers, toilets and disposal facilities open 24/7.  Dogs are allowed, if kept on a lead and walked in the designated area; only guide and assistance dogs are allowed within the school buildings.

Hard-standing spaces will be marked out by the school in the 'Quad' area, and limited electric hook-up facilities can be provided to the disabled on request.   All hard-standing places must be pre-booked.  The gate to the street will be locked at 11pm every night. If you are likely to arrive later than that, please contact the team as early as possible and remind them on the day (they are only human and certainly tired at 11pm).

Indoor camping will be available for staff and stewards (vacate by 8 am on Tuesday).

Because Tuesday is a school day, any mobile homes within the school on hard standing will need to vacate the site by 7.30am.

Campers on the playing fields need to be off the fields by 10am.  They can have access to showers and toilets until 8am.  The school will manage leaving the field up to 8.30am with a break until 9.15am (due to large vehicle and student movement across gates which lead to the field) with all off site by 10am.
