Campsite Rules

We kindly ask you to follow a few rules to keep everyone safe and happy.

Pathways

The LOOKFest is being designed with VI guests in mind, and a big part of the accessibility of the festival relies on clear pathways for independent navigation. Please respect the importance of keeping all pathways clear and free of litter. We ask that you respect the guide ropes, audio clues and tactile markers put in place as orientation landmarks. Please do not alter or move these.

Campfires and BBQ

Campfires and BBQ’s are allowed but are restricted to a designated area for health and safety. Any campfires or BBQ’s found outside the designated area will be removed by our designated fire marshal’s.

There will be a communal fire pit lit each evening that you are welcome to enjoy. We will set times for marshmallow toasting and singalongs.

Please do not scavenge wood from surrounding areas as they form habitats. Please make note of the fire points and return used gas canisters from camping stoves to Public Information for disposal and recycling.

Chinese lanterns

No Chinese fire lanterns are allowed on site as they pose a significant fire risk.

Kite flying

Due to low lying cables, use of kites, balloons and other aerial items is prohibited in the camping field. Please restrict use of aerial items to the designated area in the activity field.

Glass

Please do not bring glass bottles to the campsite. Decant liquid into plastic before you arrive. This is a family event so there’ll be lots of tiny bare feet running around everywhere!

You’re welcome to bring a personal stash of alcohol to the event, but you won’t be able to bring booze into the activity field where there will be a licensed bar. This is a condition of our licensing for the event.

Rubbish and waste

Please use eco/biodegradable or reusable utilities wherever possible e.g. camping crockery, water bottles etc. We will have reusable pint cups for sale on site!
Wherever possible please don’t use items that are harmful to the environment on site such as baby wipes and non-recyclable plastics. There will be bins onsite, but we ask that you are responsible for your own rubbish and take any waste away with you where reasonable. We expect the site to be left clean and free of rubbish at the end of the festival.

Sound systems

No sound systems, amplified music, ghetto blasters etc. are allowed in the camping areas. You can of course bring your acoustic instruments such as guitars for your campfire sing-alongs.
Please respect your fellow campers and make sure everyone can sleep when they want to, even if they snore heavily throughout the night!

Pets

The only animals permitted on site are guide dogs. We ask that guide dogs are kept on a short lead at all times in the camping and activity fields. There will be designated spending and free running areas clearly marked on the site map. You are responsible for your guide dog at all times including picking up and disposing of any waist in the designated dog waist bins.
