Hi Mark,Hi Roger, just looked at the venue on google earth, I assume we'll be using the carpark at the hockey club, only concern is if the gate is wide enough for larger motor homes (it dosn't look very wide on the street view images) although I assume they must get minibuses or coaches in there ,can you book us in for the full 5 nights please
Is there still room for me as a definite maybe?We have an amazing opportunity to hold a Motorhomer.com Rally, to coincide with the ever-popular Dereham Blues Festival.
This is a five-day event, where around a dozen venues in East Dereham host approx 120 acts encompassing a wide range of music styles.
I can now reveal the details of the location for this Rally. Our hosts for the Dereham Blues Festival will be;
Dereham Hockey Club
Honeysuckle Drive (access via Greenfields Road)
- We have an outside tap for freshwater and cassette disposal has been arranged.
- We will have access to the clubhouse for toilets and showers (communal)
- We will have our own Bar, which is on the first floor of the clubhouse, in the evenings.
- The Club has offered to sell breakfast rolls each morning, but I would ask you to let me know if this is something that would interest YOU.
Prices are either £11 per pitch per night or a discounted price of £50 for the whole five-night festival.
Cash please, on arrival.
Dogs are welcome on-site, but not in the Clubhouse and must be supervised please, and any indiscretions must obviously be cleaned up.
There are dog bins in the locality.
We may arrive anytime after 09.00 Wed 8th July and must depart by mid-day Mon 13th July.
Camping will be on grass, with a limited amount of hard standing for heavy vehicles which are likely to damage the grass.
At present, there no limits to the number of vans that can attend, although I have mentioned during discussions, that between two and three dozen vans would be likely to turn up, but the more the merrier!
There will be access to fresh water, toilets, including cassette emptying and showers as well, secure parking, which would be locked at night, although we will ALL have the combination code.
The festival is completely free to attend, except for the Headlining Act on Wednesday evening, and we will all be given a copy of the Itinerary, so we will know who is playing where and at what time. Don’t forget to look out for the jam session on Sunday afternoon!
If you would like to attend, I am simply gathering names and numbers for the time being, so that the organisers can have some idea about the size of our Rally. Putting your name down now does not commit you to attend, although it will give us some basic information to work within the final organising.
This is going to be a Rally not to be missed!
The Headlining Act has just been announced.......
Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10am 31st January!
