The March update is here upon us already, so whats new?

Firstly, CavefestUK would like to welcome our most recent supporters.

This month has seen both the Council of Northern Caving Clubs and the Council of Higher Education Caving Clubs join our ever growing supporters list. We look forward to working with them both and moving into a better future.
Another great addition this month was from the team at Wild Wookey, Wookey hole. They have kindly donated a family ticket to the attraction of your choice at Wookey. We are of course happy to announce that they will also be at Cavefest this year offering fantastc discounts to all event goers.
 And most recently of all, Rab have also agreed to donate to our prize fund. We look forward to finding out what that may be. We would like to say a big thank you to both them and UKC for sorting that out.


What do it cost?

Onsite parking. £5 for the whole event.
Camping = £6 per person per night.
Children under 16 = £4 per night.
Included with registration is 1 free raffle ticket.
Non cave club members will be asked to purchase Temporary BCA insurance for the event £3 per person.
Daily gate fee applies if not camping onsite.

Breakfast is available at the vendor outlets onsite.
Food outlets will be available throughout each day.
BBQ food will also be available Saturday evening.
