Campsite

Included in your weekend festival ticket is 4 nights of camping at Weobley Castle Farm, Thursday - Sunday. The campsite is located in the field next to the car park (less than a 5mins walk from where you'll park your car.) The campsite opens at 16:00 July 12th and closes at 12:00 on July 16th. The campsite is clearly sign posted from the Gate, Box Office and Car Park.

Showers

We have 18 hot showers at Love Trails Festival located in the campsite. These are free at the point of use and are included in your festival ticket. The water supply on-site is really limited, so we ask that you take a 3mins shower to conserve water. Showers are closed over night from 9pm - 7am. The busiest time of day is the morning and there are queues for the showers at this time, so we highly recommend showering during the day or early evening, when it's expected to be less busy. 

Dogs at Love Trails Festival

We love dogs at Love Trails Festival, but there are some rules. All dogs must be on leads at all times. Dogs must be well behaved. Love Trails Festival staff or security reserve the right to ask miss-behaving dogs to leave the premises. In this case, a refund will not be offered. If your dog isn't good around large crowds and/or loud music, please leave them at home.
