Although perhaps best known for catering to the needs of caravan, motorhome and campervan owners, the Caravan and Motorhome Club offers tent pitches at over 40 of its sites. With the fantastic weather, it’s no surprise that they have seen bookings hit record levels this summer, up 17% from last year. To encourage even more happy campers The Club organises a camping festival each year, which this year will take place over the bank holiday weekend, 25/26/27 August 2018.

The Big Little Tent Festival, now in its fourth year, was set up to encourage people to experience the magic of the great outdoors by pitching their tents in their own back garden and creating their own festival. Perfect for a new adventure or for trying it out for the first time, this back garden camping experience is for experienced and novice campers alike.

Harvey Alexander, marketing director of the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: “Camping is a great and cost-effective way to get away with the family and make the most of the fantastic weather we’re having, so it’s no surprise we’ve seen such a rise in bookings. Many of us fell in love with camping as kids after pitching a tent in our back garden and we hope the Big Little Tent Festival will encourage more young families and groups of friends to enjoy a night under canvas and all the adventures and fun that it will bring.”

You can sign up online at to register for a free festival pack which includes bunting and wristbands to enhance the experience, and also have the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win a weekend in a yurt, courtesy of Experience Freedom.
