Worth noting, Bristol now has an active Clean Air Zone driving in/through it in your mk2 Golf will cost £9 a day  :o

The greedy and arrogant councillors in Bristol have included the end of the Portway and the swing bridge at Cumberland Basin within the charge zone.

This means, if you're coming from the North, you can't even skip around the outskirts of Bristol from Avonmouth onto the Portway, going under the Clifton Suspension Bridge to past Aston Gate City Ground, and onto the A370 to get to the Bristol Volksfest site.

If you're coming from the M5, get off at Junction 19 (the junction with Gordano Services).
You should be OK coming from the South.

@vw-widow do you know what size stand we have, how many cars?
I also asked Jessica Farley on fb if she wants a space for her Fire and Ice.

I only need to let them now 6wks in advance.  Yes to Jessica.

With regards to the even itself please see the official site: https://www.bristolvolksfest.co.uk/

This will give information about tickets and camping, and what is happening over the weekend with regards to entertainment etc.

- yes it's a whole weekend
- camping is within the festival
- if you don't want to stay on site:
- - it's on the outskirts of Bristol which is a major town in England so there will be plenty of hotels. Parking my be limited, and a mk2 Golf will have to pay clean air tax.
- - it's also not far from the coast, Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-Sea,
Brean Sands. So if coming over you might want to explore the local area more.
- fairly sure you'll only need a passport as a tourist. But as you're driving check your insurance and you may want some breakdown cover.

- Some large clubs have club camping for the whole weekend. Meaning those people can book a club related ticket and get club camping where the whole club camps together in an allocated section.

We DO NOT have that this year, we only have a club stand for Sunday.
So the club spaces, are how many spaces we have for the club stand on the Sunday.
Those attending for the weekend will need to book general camping, you'll be on the campsite next to the event field. And on Sunday morning will have to move the car to the club stand for the day.

I hope that helps

Note from organisers- please tell your club to book day tickets for Sunday online.
Then you must let me know their names and booking refs on 26th May, then we will send entry instructions to everyone before the event.  @Ronwes

Thanks, please can you ask if the instructions they're going to dish out will cover people already on site? I'll be camping from Friday, I'm concerned I might not be able to move my car out of general camping and into the show on Sunday morning.

I have an order number, is that the same as a booking ref?
