Co-creating this event: Bring what you expect to find
This is not a festival, it’s an intimate community gathering for maximum 450 people.
The idea is to co-create a space which everyone feels a part of. The event gets away from the old models of audience / performer, promoter / punter. If you spot something that needs doing or is missing from the programme, there’s every chance that you may be able to do it yourself!
Our event is designed to encourage each of us to help one another and offer our skills and time to make a safe, fun, magical and creative world for a few days. Some people might just want to sit around the fire with friends, eat lovely food and relax. Others might want to learn a new skill and offer a workshop or get more involved in holding a space for others.
We are inviting attendees to step up with their own gifts / expertise / enthusiasms to help Campout run smoothly. We intend to hold morning circles where we all have a chance to speak and allocate / share essential jobs needed for the day and also promote each day’s highlights.
Car Parking and Camping
Car parking tickets are required and parking will be signed when you arrive. These can be purchased at the ticket checkout and can also be purchased at a later date via this link
There is a car park in the camping field which is a short walk to activity areas, toilets, food stalls and bar. Please bring your ticket booking email / reference with you.
We need to keep an emergency access lane through the campsite, and also to make sure there is room for everyone to camp; please co-operate with any requests from our friendly campsite stewards. We regret that no gazebos are allowed in the campsite.
We have limited space for campers vans and motorhomes. Tickets available after event / camping options in the ticket page. No hook ups. First come, first served.
There are a limited number of beds available in the house at Braziers Park. These are to be booked direct through the Braziers Office (email@example.com) at the rates of £55 per person in shared accommodation per night and of £70 per person in single accommodation per night, both with a self-service breakfast. Bathroom facilities in the house are only available to accommodation ticket holders.
Children 5-13: half price. Children under 5: free.
Toilets and Showers
The site uses composting toilets. Please put a handful of sawdust after you tinkle and keep toilets tidy. There are composting urinals onsite and four showers. Two of the toilets are accessible. There is a wood burning outdoor hot shower on site. Please only use the ecologically sound cleaning products provided as they drain directly back into the land.
There will be two large campfires on site, no other fires are allowed apart from camping stoves which are safely raised above the ground.
What to Bring?
The essentials are tent, bedding, blanket, warm clothes, water proof boots, a head torch and cooking facilities, sun hart and any other sun protection. Bring cash for food and drink sales. We strongly encourage you to support our bar and food stalls. Please bring camping chairs, yoga mat, camping plates, mugs, water bottle, cutlery.
What to take home?
We’d love not to have to bring a professional waste and litter company and the extra costs this would incur. So the accent is on each of us to leave no trace. That means bringing any bags or receptacles you might need, plus any items listed above. And to take home any litter with you.
We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavour, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Getting There / Lift Share
Campout is located at Braziers Park in south Oxfordshire, between Oxford (17 miles) and Reading (10 miles). Although the event site is in a remote and beautiful part of the country on the edge of the Chilterns, there is a regular bus service from both major centres, the X40 which offers a service around 20 times a day. The nearest railways station is Goring (4 miles away)
Please do not contact the venue with enquiries.

There will also be food stalls on site offering curry and vegetarian / vegan options, breakfasts and baps, pizzas and coffees and teas. There will be a bar offering draft beer and cider, wines and cocktails.
If you do not want to purchase food every day we suggest bringing a camping stove and cooking facilities. We will have access to our event kitchen for limited access communal cooking and further details will be announced soon.
There will be a bar serving a range of alcoholic and soft drinks running every day
Our friendly bar-people serve locally-sourced ale, organic cider and cold cans of lager, as well as wines, spirits and soft drinks. Only those over 18 will be served. Under 25’s will be carded. Free drinking water is available from all water points, marked on the map.
We expect that our music and drinks license will be until midnight. We are aiming to create an empowering and healthy environment. We invite you to drink responsibly so that you enjoy the fullness of the daytime experience without a hangover!
From the campsite guidelines:
Dogs are not allowed without specific, prior permission. Any dogs visiting site must be kept on a lead at all times.
The site is 11 acres and surrounded by beautiful untainted countryside. There are some great countryside walks in the neighbourhood.
Campout is about connecting to our children and each other. We are currently curating an experience for our younger attendees and will update as details emerge.
Codes of Conduct.
This is a conscious gathering. We are developing our event ethos and manifesto for co-creating events as we go so please feel free to be part of this process. We welcome your ideas as we form that Manifesto.
Please take full responsibility for yourself and your own children at the camp. Heavy drinking or drug use will not be tolerated at the camp. If someone is seen by a group of others as a threat then they will be asked to attend the adult circle held daily to address the issue with a potentially of being asked to leave the camp.
