THE CASTLE PARK, STANHOPE, CO. DURHAM, DL13 2LU | 23rd - 24th JUNE 2017
Campers please note - if you have camping tickets and would like to camp near to friends, please try to ensure you enter the site all together, as camping plots will be filled up sequentially. There is no designated meeting area inside the site, so if you want to camp together, simply advise the marshals and they’ll organise camping spaces next to you, to be kept for your mates, for when they arrive. It always works well, so we’ll be there to help with your camping arrangements at SVF V, just the same. If you have any other specific camping requirements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or Contact page and we will do everything we can to help you. Also note that camping tickets will not be available on the gate - camping is pre-sale only.

Due to high ticket demand we now operate two equally beautiful camping sites, Castle Park & Stanhope Showground, which are situated either side of the river and accessible via the footbridge. Both sites allow you to park next to your tent, caravan, etc, so no half mile walk with your gear! Site B is the larger site and recommended for people looking for a quieter pitch and with lots of space for big motorhomes or caravans with awnings, etc.
CASTLE PARK (MAIN SITE) POST CODE: DL13 2LU The ‘Home of the Festival’ where all the action is, with the main marquee and entertainment area, food and traders stalls, portable toilets and mobile showers, all on here. This site has sold out well in advance for the last 3 years, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
STANHOPE SHOWGROUND (SITE B) POST CODE: DL13 2PQ A spacious, quieter area, fully secured with permanent fixed toilets and washrooms, plus shower units. Right next to Castle Park, it’s literally just a minute’s stroll across the bridge from the main site. This is ideal for people who want to be right next to the action, but in a quiet camp site - the best of both worlds!
