Twinwood Arena campsite

Twinwood Arena, Clapham, Beds MK41 6AB  T: 01923 282725
Email:   Web:
Facilities: toilets, showers, chemical disposal points, campsite shop. The campsite has lighting in, and has beautiful panoramic views across Bedfordshire, and is situated close to Twinwood Arena. Does not have electric hook up points.

Twinwood Campsite is only open during festivals at Twinwood Arena. Please see the Campsite terms & conditions which relate specifically to the event you are attending at Twinwood Arena. Below is some more information about camping at Rhythm Festival:

Answers to frequently asked questions about the Twinwood Camp Sites:
CAMPSITE A – (Bronze Site) is right next to the Main Arena. It has showers, toilets & water points, a chemical disposal point and is near to the camp site shop. Please note that cooking and BBQs can only be done in the two communal BBQ areas and any naked flames are not allowed next to your tent. This is a fire precaution and is done with your safety in mind. Also cars must be parked around the perimeter of the site and not by your tent. This is another safety measure, however your car will not be far away and will be visible and easily reached from your tent. Caravans will be in a separate area of the site and the restrictions do not apply.

CAMPSITE B – (Gold Site) SOLD OUT This is the quiet site recommended for families. This site is about 360 metres from the Main Arena and has showers, toilets & water points, etc. In camp site B you are allowed to have a small Bar-be-Que as long as the fire is contained within a purpose built BBQ and is well off the ground so it will not damage the grass. You must have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher near to the BBQ at all times whilst in use, and not leave any BBQ or cooking appliance unattended until it is completely cold. (please be careful as carelessness with BBQs might mean we have to ban them totally in future!) In campsite B, cars can park next to tents. SOLD OUT

Campsite space can only be booked and used by people with full-weekend tickets (no camping available for day ticket holders). A campsite plot is needed for each tent, caravan or campervan (not per person).

The Paddock: Outfields Farm Campsite, New for 2008!

Outfields Farm is opening a campsite for both of the major Twinwood Events. Situated 1/2 mile from Twinwood Arena their 4.4 acre paddock is perfect for those who prefer not to be too close to the hustle and bustle of the events. The setting is stunning and Outfields has to be the perfect rural retreat. The nearest road is over 3/4 mile away. The paddock is completely fenced (ideal for those with small children) and completely surrounded by open fields. There are numerous public bridleways nearby and alongside the adjacent stream. As they are launching this site very late in the day, they're not expecting to fill it to capacity so for the people that do stay this year there should be plenty of space for everyone.

The walk to Twinwoods from the Paddock is a leisurely 10/15 minutes. Please remember to bring a torch for the return journey as it will be very dark (no street lighting in these parts). Facilities include a water supply, points for general refuse and liquid/chemical waste. There is no power.

They will be opening their site for the Twinwood Festival on the 22nd August closing it on the 26th August. For The Rhythmn Festival they will be opening on the 28th August and closing on the 2nd September. They will be opening the gates at 10:30am on the first day and closing them at midday on the last day for both events.
