Where we are
We hold our festival at a beautiful site in Northamptonshire. By campervan, we’re 25 minutes from Northampton, 2.5 hours from Bristol, just over 2 hours from London and 5.5 hours from Edinburgh.
Taking public transport
Don’t have a van yet? Our festival site is in a rural location so taking public transport can be a little tricky. The closest train station is Market Harborough. You can then take a 10-minute taxi or 25-minute bus to the site. Car(van)pooling is the way to go! Join our Facebook group The Quirky Campfire where we’ll have a carpool thread closer to the time.
Food and Drink
There will be hot food for sale all day every day – these will be served with compostable plates/cutlery etc. but if you want to bring your own that’s even better.
Food will include vegan and gluten-free options.
Our fully licensed bar will be serving a selection of local ales, cider and lager. There will also be spirits and cocktails available.
Food and drink is priced affordably – please support our traders by buying their delicious fare.
There will be 10 shower cubicles which will be operating in daylight hours only due to all site electrics running from solar.
- There will be plenty of compost loos and urinals
- We will have an accessible toilet
- There will be a chemical toilet disposal point however we strongly advise you to use the compost facilities for the sake of the environment
We are delighted that Camp Quirky will be a diesel generator free event! All our power will be provided by 2 solar arrays – 1 on a converted fire engine and the other on a Double decker bus. Strictly no generators on site.
There will be no hook-up; the event is taking place on a beautiful and wild festival site, not a campsite.
If you’re not in a campervan with a solar setup and need to charge your devices, head over to the solar fire engine where they will be charging phones for a donation.
Do I need to bring cash?
In a word, YES. There will be no cashpoint on site and while a handful of traders may accept cards, the majority will not. Your best bet is to stop at a cashpoint on the way there and ensure you have enough for food, drink and any lovely bits you may want to pick up from any of our other lovely traders.
There will be a specific grey water disposal point. As ever we would encourage you to use biodegradable soaps.
