What to Expect

Camping

We will open the campsite at 1500 on Thursday, and will ask participants to leave by 1800 on Sunday. We welcome tents and camper vans, but we’re not licensed for caravans. Our camping field has composting loos and water points. Warm showers will be available throughout the conference.

If you plan to camp, please bring everything you need – we cannot provide spare equipment. The camping field is not lit at night, so bring a torch and batteries. We also recommend a foldable camping chair.

Food and Drink

Meals from Friday morning to Sunday lunchtime are included in the ticket price. We plan to organise a potluck dinner on the Thursday evening. We cater to as many dietary requirements as we can (including vegan and gluten-free), but we may not be able to meet every need.

Tea and cakes will be on sale during breaks. We suggest bringing a few extra snacks and a refillable water bottle.

If you can, please bring reusable cups, cutlery and plates for meals. This is a huge help to us, simplifying clear-up and reducing waste!

Kids

Children of all ages are welcome at the conference. We’ll have a dedicated kids’ area and we’ll offer some workshops for children.

Cars

Parking will be available on site throughout the event. For safety, no cars are allowed in the camping area after Friday evening. To limit the environmental impact of this event we encourage lift sharing.

Dogs

Braziers Park is a working farm, and we often have livestock in our fields. In general, we don’t allow dogs on site. If you wish to bring an assistance dog, please email us.

Rooms

A small number of rooms will be available in Braziers House at our B+B rates (TBC for 2024).

Access

We hope to make the conference (and all events at Braziers Park) as accessible as possible, regardless of age, sex, colour, race, creed, sexual orientation, or disability.

However, with a listed building over 300 years old and and a large, rolling rural estate, it can be challenging for us to make our site accessible to people with physical disabilities.

People with mobility problems do regularly visit Braziers and we are very willing to seek creative solutions to access issues. Please contact us with any questions.

Please note that this is mainly a camping event. If you will need a room in the house for access reasons, please get in touch well in advance, as availability is limited.
