Booking Info: Campervans FAQ

We’re excited to have you pulling up your campervans for a solstice weekend of art and adventure by the sea. Before you pack up and ship out to the coast, here are a few important pieces of information you need to know.

This page contains important information about your stay – please make sure to read it thoroughly before you head for the beach.

 

Campsite Location
Your clifftop campsite will be accessible via All Saint Car Park, NR33 0JN. There’ll be plenty of signage and volunteers to point you in the right direction from there. The campsite will be open to Friday & Saturday Campers from 6pm on Friday 17th June, and from 10am on Saturday 18th June for Saturday Campers. This is campervan life festival style – you won’t have allocated spots, but we ask that you be considerate of space and other campers

When you arrive, please check in with the Campsite Manager at reception (which will be signposted). They’ll make sure you have everything you need for a lovely stay!

 

Campervan check
Due to our limited space, we can only welcome campervans which are self-contained. If your campervan requires a car to pull it, you’ll need to find a public spot outside the campsite to park your car over your stay. Additional tents around your campervan will also not be allowed. If you have any questions about whether your campervan will be permitted, email info@firstlightlowestoft.com.

During your stay, we invite you to embrace the festival spirit and decorate your campervans. We want to see flags, garlands and bold colours!
 


What to pack?

Have you got everything you need? Here’s a short list of things you might want to bring:
– Sleeping bag, pillows and mats
– Torch
– Warm clothes – it gets chilly at night next to the sea, trust us!
– Drinking water bottle
– Rubbish bags
– Spare toilet roll
– Tooth brush and tooth paste!

Although there will be security on site at all times belongings are left at your own risk and best to leave valuables at home.

Also – please leave dogs at home! They are not allowed on most of the festival site due to summer season beach rules and it just wouldn’t be fun for them.


Campsite rules!

We would like the Campervan area to be an enjoyable space for everyone, which unfortunately means a few rules…
1. No fires, BBQs, fireworks or Chinese lanterns. We know fire is an important part of camping, so why not join us at the campfire on the beach by the Sunlight stage?
2. No smoking please
3. No glass please
4. If you have a gas stove or lamp please make sure this is used and switched off properly and stored safely away from your and other people’s vans.
 


Facilities

This is wild beach festival camping – not glamping! There will be toilets and drinking water available, however there will not be showers or washing facilities. There is no electrical hookup, nor water dumping facilities (we ask that you take everything with you!).

Evacuation
In the unlikely case of an evacuation of the campsite an alarm will sound. Please follow the instructions of the campsite manager and/or security, leave the campsite immediately and head to the field adjacent to Pakefield Road car park.

If you have access requirements please make yourself known to the campsite manager so they can assist you in the event of evacuation.

Packing up
The wild camping code: leave no trace. This is the crucial rule of wild camping and ideally you will create minimum impact on your desired area so it still remains natural and wild. Better still, you should leave the site so no one can tell you’ve even been there. Litter – this goes without saying, but ensure you collect all your rubbish and take it with you. Walk the site slowly before leaving to check that nothing is missed. Leave the site as you found it – don’t leave holes, fire damage, litter, and take care not to damage vegetation.. The campervan site must be clear by 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
