    Entrance Fee

    We do not charge an entrance fee ourselves, but the venue does:

    Camping: 12 per day (per car)

    Day visit: 5 (per car)

    This is very reasonable as we get our own private field and power.

    When you arrive at the gates, please state you are here for the Digital-Car gathering and they will charge and direct you accordingly. When asked at the gate - you don't need power!

    There are shower and toilet facilities availble closeby (less than 150m from marquee)

    Note: There is a travel inn nearby if you'd like to stay the two days but don't like the idea of camping!

    Suggested To-Bring List if camping

    Tent (please let us know if you don't have one but would like to sleep over - we should have space in another tent)

    Wash Kit

    Sleeping Bag

    Money, we often stop off at the pub at the gate for an evening meal on Sunday
