Latest news. We have spoken to the campsite and they are happy to accommodate us but note this is no longer a Bongo Fury meeting. Instead it is 29 individual bookings. If you are listed as attending we will send you an information pack shortly. Note that if you are in a local lockdown area you may be prohibited from leaving your area.

The deadline for cancellations is 3pm on 30/09/20. After this time no refunds can be given.

Sorry I could not make it. In the photos it looks very peaceful and wet, like a ghost campsite. Was everyone sheltering in the local pub ? :D
A Bongo by any other name would still drive as sweet.
