Glamping packages now open!

It’s four months til Nozstock, our Wizard of Noz theme has been announced, and festival season and all the excitement that comes with it is on your mind – but there’s that one issue that crops up every year, camping.

We know there’s no place like home, so this year at Nozstock we’re offering a range of camping options to keep you well-rested after long days exploring the yellow brick road…

Glamping with Zoobells

If it’s privacy and luxury you’re after, Zoobells is the choice for you. All packages offer a pre-pitched canvas bell tent within a private campsite.

Formed with steel poles, a sewn-in ground sheet and stylish ventilated cotton bunting, all bell tents are fully weatherproof, so you can relax knowing you’re completely prepared for whatever the British summertime has to offer this year! 

Whether you simply seek a stylish bell-tent, or if you wish to sleep among the stars in lavish luxury, Zoobells offer classic, traditional and luxury packages to ensure your entire camping needs are met. Upgrade options include the choice to add comfy mattresses, Egyptian cotton bed sheets and rugs amongst other luxuries. 

Please bear in mind spaces are limited so if you fancy camping in style this year click here for further information and here to make a booking.

Camplight Pre-pitched Tents

Not a fan of glamping but don’t don’t fancy lugging your tent, sleeping-bag and chair combo all the way to Nozstock this year? Camplight offer the perfect solution.

Camplight will pre-pitch your tent ready for your arrival AND take it down after you leave – making your festival Monday blues that little bit easier. 

As well as freeing you from the stress of battling with pesky tent poles & pegs, all Camplight tents are handpicked from UK festivals, reducing festival wastage and recycling, so your conscience can be green-clean.

Starting from £52 all camplight packages include a pre-pitched tent, sleeping bag and roll mat. Book one of our Camplight packages by clicking here.

Follow the yellow brick road…2019 theme announced!

Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Bromyard any more…

We get it. Every now and then the everyday world feels dull, dreary, black-and-white even, the drudgery of work, college, a flat pint in a cheap pub and a rainy walk home with only the thought of summer and a few weekends of freedom on the horizon to keep you going. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all, go on an adventure, meet some new mates, get some new shoes, maybe melt an evil witch or two, generally have a good time. Maybe somewhere over the rainbow, where the sparkling emerald slopes of the Hidden Valley will melt away your troubles and where things are ready to get well and truly weird…

That’s right Nozstockers, this year we’re off to see the Wizard, the wonderful wizard of Noz – and you’re all coming along for the ride. Because we’re lovers of all things technicolour, trippy and ever so slightly terrifying – as well as a good pun – we have decided to spend our twenty first year paying tribute to the iconic 1939 film which inspired so many sequels, prequels, spin-offs and pop culture moments – as well as its fair share of childhood nightmares, we’re sure. Our humble farm will be transformed into the glittering Emerald City, and we’ll be inviting friends of Dorothy from far and wide to join us. From rainbows, lemondrops and cowardly lions to flying monkeys, psychiatric wards and Michael Jackson, there’s something for everyone within the Oz universe – and we’re looking forward to seeing your imaginations at work, my pretties.

Make sure you pack your red sequined wellies and remember – there’s no place like the farm!

2019 Little Wonderland and family camping improvements!

With just over 200 days until Nozstock 2019 begins we’re already looking ahead to next year, and plans are afoot to entertain mini Nozstockers come next July! We have some big improvements planned for our Little Wonderland and family camping areas… 

The key changes for 2019 include:

  1. Increasing the capacity of family camping, meaning more space for more families! 
  2. 25% more toilets + kid sized loos! 
  3. Supplies available for family campers – loo roll, wet wipes, sanitiser, sun cream, plasters, toothpaste + site maps! 
  4. Little Wonderland Kids Area expanded to include more activities aimed at older children including workshops in break dancing, graffiti, beat boxing, felt-making, crazy cartoons and up-cycling clothes. As well, as chances to design your own Nozstock t-shirt. Don’t worry the little kids will still have plenty to do!
  5. A dedicated breastfeeding space
  6. ‘Save your space’ scheme. Want to make sure you have enough space to camp together? A limited amount of 5m x 2m pitches are available to pre-book for 2019!

Come and join the Noz Family…and remember all kids 12 and under attend the festival for free!!

“We are still smiling, to be honest, after how amazing our 20th anniversary was. Selling out was really great and we had a packed site, it was lovely to see everyone having so much fun and to see so many kids on site really getting into everything! We wanted to announce some new elements for next year, after listening to feedback and realising there are some simple things we can do to enhance the experience for families – that’s what this news is all about.” – Ella Nosworthy.
