Chesterfield, Derbyshire Pagans Lammas Camp 2015

30th July - 2nd August



Our annual Camp is getting closer, soon be in the field enjoying being with friends and like minded folktaking in workshops, listening to talks, joining in rituals, doing some drumming and dancing and having fun :0) 

I've gathered together useful info about camp and put it on here and my website to make it easier to find rather than scrolling through our facebook event page to find it

Check out our facebook page for details of moots and drum group where tickets can be brought in person - 
Chesterfield Pagans

Tickets on sale until Saturday 24th July, unless we sell out first.

Thursday will be opened by Beating of the Bounds, followed by the Opening Fire Ceremony and then drumming around the fire. 

Friday is entertainment evening
Saturday will be the Lammas Ritual and a Handfasting renewal :0) Spontaneous drumming will occur as well I should think ;0)  
Camp closes 2pm Sunday.

I will put the timetable up on here as well for events and workshops etc when they're ready.


Can people volunteering to run workshops/talks/entertainment etc contact Gwen by emailing her on gxxxred7 @aol.com (no space in the email address) please, so that she has it in writing to refer to help her remember everything.

This is a link to New House Organic Farm where we hold Lammas Camp in the top field.

To make sure this years camp is even better, we have had to put extra rules into place this year from lessons learned in previous years.  Please read them and follow them, even if you've been to Lammas Camp before, they will answer many of the questions you might have.

There is ticket info at the bottom.  We are not using Zeta to take money for tickets this year, to keep costs down (and you must admit our camp with all the workshops, entertainment etc is really good value) Cherill (ticket master extraordinaire) is giving herself the headache of dealing with tickets and ticket enquires.  

There are to be no gate sales and a ticket application form must be sent to Cherill 
either by snail mail or email, info below.

Derbyshire Pagans Lammas Camp Ticket Application Form Information, Rules and Regulations!

Please read these terms and conditions before applying for tickets. The  ticket application form is on page 4.  Once you have read these pages, please indicate on your ticket application form that you agree to abide by these rules/conditions. Failure to do so will result in your ticket request being denied.

Tickets
Tickets are limited. We reserve the right to refuse ticket applications without giving a reason.  Tickets will be sent out by email once payment is made and cleared.  These tickets must be printed and presented to the Marshalls at camp where they will be exchanged for wristbands.  No ticket = no entry!

Arrival
Please do not arrive before 2.00pm
On arrival please report to the Marshalls at the entrance to the first field. The Welcome tent will be at the entrance to the camping field. Also, there is a steep hill to climb in your vehicle to get into the camping field, which can be difficult in wet weather.  Please follow the instructions the Marshalls will give you about this hill and about where you must camp/park.  Marshalls will also be in the main events/camping field and you must follow their instructions should they give you any. We will try our best to help you if necessary!

Pitches
There are no set pitches.  We cannot save any spaces for anyone and NEITHER CAN YOU!  The pitching is on a first come, first choice basis.  If you want to camp next to your family/friends, we suggest you arrive together.  Also, be aware that some workshops may be noisy.  Therefore, if you want a quieter pitch, you may want to consider pitching further up the field.

Water
There are two standpipes which supply cold water only. Please use these responsibly and be aware that the area around the taps may get very muddy!

Toilets
The toilets are eco long-drop toilets, but we do supply two toilet tents on ground level for children and disabled people only! There are also two eco toilets at the bottom of the first field.  We also provide gents with urinal area. There is no hand washing facilities, other than the cold water supply.  You are responsible for your own hygiene standards.
If you are using camping toilets, you must use biodegradable toilet fluid only and empty these in the long drop toilets.  Do not empty them in the hedgerows! Female Urine upsets the Ewes and this is a nasty thing to do.
Please leave all toilet areas in a clean condition, as you would wish to find them.  If you ‘miss aim’ please wipe the seats!

Showers
There are NO showers or hot water!  You are responsible for your own hygiene needs.

Cars
All cars/vans must park in the first field unless you have a Disability Blue Parking Badge.  We shall require proof of the badge holder’s identity on the site. You will be allowed to drive onto the main field to unload etc but then you will need to go and park in the other field.
Small motor homes will be allowed on the camping field, but larger ones will be asked to park in the first field. 
Caravans can park in the main field but your vehicles must go into the first field.
This change is due to the cramped conditions of 2014 and the increase in larger vehicles/caravans. 
Non – compliance with the parking changes will result in you being asked to leave the site. 
Vehicles are parked at owners own risk.  The organisers take no responsibility for any vehicle.  We suggest that you lock any valuables in your vehicle.  The organisers cannot be held responsible for missing items.

Children
Please be aware that there is a very steep cliff on the field above camp, so do not allow your children to wander unaccompanied in this area.
IT IS VERY DANGEROUS!
Please do not allow children of any age to play on the Hay Bales or in any part of the farm yard, by express wishes of the farmer!

Dogs
Dogs are welcome but must be kept under control at all times.  There are children and livestock around (and adults!).
All dog mess must be cleaned up and put in the long drop toilets.  Eco bags will be available if required at the Welcome Tent. 
Please be aware of the safety issue with dogs on tethers or long leads.  People do not always look for ropes etc when walking round!
Please do NOT approach dogs without the owners’ permission!
If ANY dog is found off a lead, or if any owner is found not to be cleaning up their dogs mess, they will be asked to leave the site immediately, or to take the dog/dogs and place them in nearby kennels. This is your choice!

Stalls
You are welcome to put a small stall outside your tent FOR FREE! However, due to the increase in insurance costs, we must insist you have your own Personal Liability Insurance.  We will need to see proof of this before you set up a stall.  Please note that you are responsible for your own stall and goods displayed on them.

Fire-pits
There are a few fire-pits available to loan, but you can bring your own.  However, they must be kept off the grass!  You MUST bring YOUR OWN wood to burn or logs can be purchased from Bob the farmer!  We do not supply you with logs
ANY aggressive or violent behaviour will be dealt with by INSTANT EVICTION!
We have qualified First Aiders on camp should you need them.  Please go to the Welcome Tent if you require help.  We also have Health and Safety Officers should you require advice.

Camp closes at 2.00pm. Please leave by then!

So in Short:-

Please be kind to one another!
Keep your area pretty.
Respect the environment.
Look after your kids, pets, cars and stalls etc.
And:-

HAVE A BLOODY GOOD TIME!

Looking forward to seeing you all,

The Lammas Camp Organisers and Crew.
