It's in a field opposite the boozer I believe. There is a separate post code listed somewhere, but sods law I can't find it.

It's the 5 mins walk that puzzles me. There are half a dozen proper pitch next to the pub then a field where I guess some tents will be. The only thing that looked possible is a tennis court with building that is probably changing rooms next to it the other side of the village.

It is quite tight, but not quite as tight as the photos show:

The walk is up Bow Street, then along to the pub... footpath all the way.

The CL behind the pub and the adjacent field are on quite a slope - your levellers would need levellers.

The field is used for day ticket car parking & some staff/acts camping.
The grey bit above the star is the car park but taken over by a large marquee for one stage.
The 2nd stage marquee is in the garden where the umbrellas are.

There's a small convenience store a minute or so walk away from the camping field, and a 2nd pub [the Bluebell https://thebluebell-callowend.co.uk/ ] a couple of hundred yards further on.

Not long now (y)

A little housekeeping question. Does anyone know if we have access to a dump point or somewhere to empty toilet cassettes over the duration of the weekend (Thursday to Monday)?

To dump black waste the organisers have in the past opened up one of the sewage inspection points. It's located at the rear of the shower/toilet block. No difficulty for emptying cassettess.

Did anyone see/enjoy a quirky band called The Achievers? My friend Aron is the drummer and he, along with his band mates are superb musicians but no way would I describe their music as the blues!

Yes we saw them they were good but the PA was playing up and the guitarist/singer couldn't be heard until about their fourth song. Must admit that they didn't come across as 'blues' to me either, but nonetheless very good.
