UK National Bongo Bash 2023
Wednesday 21st to Monday 26th June
Full Venue Address: The Rally Field, Lickhill Manor Caravan Park, Lower Lickhill Road, Stourport on Severn, Worcestershire DY13 8RL
Note: Do not book directly with the campsite as you will be asked to pay full rate and will be in the Touring Park, not in the rally field.
DAY VISITORS are welcome. You do not have to be a member although we do ask for a donation to this year’s nominated charity, the International Committe for Red Cross.
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. There is a catering unit on site and there will be stalls selling Bongo parts and accessories. On Thursday night there is an opportunity to meet others in the marquee for “Meet the Bongonauts” and on Friday and Saturday nights there is live entertainment. There is a marquee where well-being sessions are held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. On Saturday there is a Makers/Craft Fair. On Sunday there is the legendary club AGM. Unfortunately it has not been possible to run a coach excursion this year.
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 full facilities including toilets, showers, washing up areas and Portaloos. There is a dog walking area in the next field and there are 2 childrens play areas.
There are 60 electric hook-ups available and 100 non-electric pitches (more can be made available on demand). 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.
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.
