Important Information regarding COVID Regulations: Read this first

As things stand England is due to fully exit lockdown on Monday 21st June. The Bongo Bash starts two days later. There is the possibility that some slippage may occur on this reopening date so we have planned as if restrictions will still apply and it will be a low key affair this year. If all restrictions are lifted then that is an added bonus.

In practice this means the following:

  • There will be no live music this year, but we will still have a marquee as a social space (it’s already paid for).
  • There will be no coach trip. And no catering facilities.
  • Social distancing and the “rule of 6” may apply and you may be required to wear a mask in designated areas.
  • The Bongo Fury Shop will not be open (replaced by trestle table selling a few items of merchandise, owners manuals etc) but other traders including Bongospares, New Dawn,  Bespoke Auto Electrical & Comfortz Leisure have been invited to have outside stalls.
  • There will be restricted capacity of 64 electric hook ups (no split hook ups this year) and 75 non-electric pitches. But if things change by mid-May we will release more non-electric spaces.
  • Strict 8 metre spacing requirements will apply. All Bongos must be facing the same way. No “back-to-back” encampments. Parking in order of arrival. If you want to be next to a friend then please arrive together or bring something to mark out their pitch.
  • You should assume that there will be limited toilets and showers available so you should bring their own toilet/washing facilities where possible.
  • Day visitors (if allowed) will be limited to 20 parking spaces. Day visitors are encouraged to arrive on foot.

There will be a 3 stage booking system (see below).
a) 01/04 by phone only for electric hook up
b) 06/04 phone or online for non-electric
c) 27/05 if allowed, release of more non-electric spaces.

About the Bongo Bash

The Bongo Bash is a chance to spend a few days in the company of other Bongo owners. It is a chance to meet old friends, make new ones, look at different configurations and equipment or just to relax and forget about problems elsewhere. Hopefully there will be a few stalls selling Bongo parts and accessories and on Thursday night there is an opportunity to meet others in the marquee for a socially distanced “Meet the Bongonauts”. On Sunday morning there is the legendary club AGM.

The campsite, which is child and dog friendly, is ideal for everyone. The 14 acre rally field is by the side of the Severn and it is a 15 minute walk into town alongside the river. There is a convenience store and pub up on the main road from the campsite.

There are 64 electric hook-ups available and 75 non-electric pitches.  But it’s June, and you don’t really need to have a hook-up as you can charge your phone at reception. There is a children’s adventure playground. The campsite has fishing rights, and small boats can be launched from the slip way.

There may be a small craft fair on Saturday depending on restrictions.

This is a Bongo Fury members-only event. Not a member? Then join here.

For the very latest updates, discussion etc then have a look on the Bongo Fury Forum.
