The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Countryfile Live as its official camping partner, and will operate on-site camping for the duration of the show from 4-7 August 2016.
Countryfile Live is an all-new event set to combine the tradition of the UK’s best county fairs with the high quality presentation of BBC One’s Countryfile programme, all set in the stunning stately home and grounds of Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. Running across four days, this one of a kind event will bring the very best of the British countryside to Blenheim Palace, offering something for all the family (and their four legged friends!)
Visitors to the show will be able to immerse themselves in every aspect of the British countryside and country living through live arena shows, talks, animal displays, hands-on activities and farming practices.
There will also be opportunities to get up close to Countryfile presenters and visitors will be able to browse over 600 food and craft producers after enjoying a drink in a great British pub garden.
For those keen to camp during the show, there will be 200 standard grass pitches available at the Club-operated campsite in the stunning Blenheim Palace estate.
Campers are welcome in all camping units, including tents, trailer tents, caravans and motorhomes. Campsite facilities will include toilets and showers, plus fresh water and chemical disposal points.
Camping and Caravanning Club Member Services Director Darren Whittington said: “Countryfile is a hugely popular show, and a hit with many of our members, so we’re over the moon to be joining forces with Countryfile Live and playing a key role in this inaugural event. The Club will exhibit at the show too, so we’re looking forward to meeting visitors to the event, and sharing with them the joys of camping with the Club.”
Tim Etchells, Managing Director of SME London, BBC Countryfile Live organiser, said, ‘“We want to offer Countryfile Live visitors a great camping experience at the event – what better partner could we have to do so than The Camping and Caravanning Club?”
Visitors planning to camp onsite at Blenheim must purchase both a day ticket to Countryfile Live, which starts at £26.40 for an adult, as well as camping for the four nights of the show which costs a further £150 (for up to two adults and two children). Additional adults incur a one-off fee of £20 per person and the pitch price is fixed at four days of camping though visitors are not required to stay for that length of time.
The price per pitch includes re-entry passes to Countryfile Live for the duration of the event, meaning that campers will have access to the full four days of Countryfile Live for the price of their day ticket and accommodation.
