29th to 31st July
Portland, Dorset DT5 2NA

Ahoy, Me Hearties!
It’s nearly time and we’re all very excited to welcome you down to the (hopefully) sunny
coast of Dorset. The site will be open from 12 noon on Friday and if you haven’t bought
your ticket for camping yet please try and do this before you come:
It’s only £20 for adults (over 16) and £10 for kids (5 and over) for camping for all 3 nights:
This covers camping and entry. You can pay when you get down if you’re a last minute
decider. If you can’t afford the camping fee get in touch and we can pay for you.

If you’ve booked a hotel room already you don’t need a ticket. The hotel is now full.

Day tickets are £10. Please pay at the merchandise stall.

Here’s all you need to know about the weekend of the decade…

What to bring…
– Plates, cutlery, cups… we’re trying to reduce waste so please bring these if you can.
– Your fancy dress outfit for Saturday night. The theme is UNDER THE SEA.
– We need (ideally sea-themed) shit prizes for the competitions – bring your best tat!
– Do you have any old t-shirts, kit, posters, flags, scarves etc? Bring ‘em down to decorate the history tent! We’ll make sure you get them back, or you can donate them to HQ to be immortalised forever.
– You’ll be able to pay by card for entry, food, drinks and merchandise. Maybe bring a bit of cash in case other teams/bands have merch stalls with no card payments.

Where to head to…
The campsite: Sweet Hill Farm Camping, Sweet Hill Road, Southwell, Portland, DT5 2DS
The hotel: Admiralty Hotel, Southwell Business park, Portland, DT5 2NA

Once you get here…
– If you are arriving at the campsite you will be able to collect your wristbands at the entrance. Alternatively, if you’ve booked a hotel room, you’ll get your wristband on check-in. Adults won’t be served at the bar without one so if you arrive when there is no-one on the entry gate get your wristband from the bar.
– The gate stewards will show you where to park for camping when you arrive. There is also parking around the hotel and industrial estate for those not camping.
– The main bar will open from 2pm on Friday. The full entertainment schedule can be found in the programme and by the main marquee. Friday will be a more mellow vibe as we have noise restrictions to adhere to as part of our licensing agreement with the council, so please help us with this by keeping noise down after 12am.
– There will be food in the hotel, campsite and by the pitches, including vegan and gf.
– There will be water, showers and washing up facilities on the campsite. Hot showers are £2 for 6 minutes. There are free cold showers (not in cubicles).
– There is a full programme with all the details you should need for the weekend (plus much more!) so please purchase one from the merch stall. £3 (if you can afford).

+ We’ll be showing the womens Euros final at 5pm Sunday. England v Germany dream!!!!

Health and safety…
– Portland is currently on high wildfire alert. Please don’t light fires. Camping stoves/BBQs are ok.

-There are steep cliffs just beyond the site (beyond the coastal path) so please be
cautious if you are wondering around these areas drunk at night.

– Covid levels are currently quite high in the UK, so please try to be aware of this. The
highest risk areas will be in the marquees at busy times, especially during the
mass-karaoke! Please try to test before travelling, and stay away from others if you
feel unwell. There will be hand sanitiser at various locations for you to use. We know
we haven’t seen each other for years and will be super excited to see each other again
but please remember that some people may be vulnerable and/or less comfortable
with close physical contact, so check before you dive in for that massive hug!!
