Camping at Good Vibrations Society
Good Vibrations Society is dedicated to creating an open, safe and inviting campsite environment.
There will be plenty of room to form your community and enjoy the beauty of the Ashdown Forest.
There will be warm showers, drinking water, toilets and an onsite supplies shop courtesy of Harvest Supplies, the Ashdown Forest based organic healthfood shop.
This will be the perfect environment to enjoy the weekend.
We will have an area onsite for children to play, learn and interact with other children at the event. This will be an activity space where parents or guardians will be invited to stay or keep watch close by while our professional child educators and fun starters will offer a wide range of games and activities.
Lake Side Spa
A short walk from the main event space is our wild swimming lake for supervised swimming. Surrounded by trees, this magical swimming lake will be open each day with space to relax on the grassy bank or enjoy a traditional Native American Sweat Lodge.
Dotted throughout the woods will be a diverse selection of tents offering small scale therapies, workshops and unique experiences to explore and connect with your self and others.
The Dragonfly by The Hop Yard
The Dragonfly will be our onsite village pub.
Overlooking the main stage area and ran by The Hop Yard brewery, the Dragonfly will offer a range of high-quality beers, wines and spirits in a beautiful environment. We will even have a beer garden!
We are dedicated to creating a safe, covid-compliant site, following all government guidelines at the time of Good Vibrations Society.
As event organisers, we also value relaxed environments which encourage positive interactions, engagement and community.
Our decisions will be considerate and supportive of both of these goals.
