I love this rally, although I havent had the opportunity to get there in recent years.

Witton Castle is great. Assuming things haven't changed too much since I last attended, there are toilets and hot showers (coins required) at the Castle, and a small provisions shop but as stated it's a long time since I was there.

The guys/gals who run the rally are great and it's well organised. Bands are usually brilliant, saw Levellers there several times in 90's. My kids were tiny but loved the whole thing. There was a family field, so if its still the same I would make sure you are in the right camping area for you.

The food stalls used to be very nice but again it's been a while since I've attended.

I note Angel Fire are playing, they are a reasonably local band to me and played YRBS at Squires last weekend. They always go down well.

If you forget any camping gear, get yourself along to Johnson's of Leeds (army surplus supplies) they have all sorts of stuff available, again local to me and I know them well 😊

Have a great time!

Hiya Lindsay , aww thanks yea will do , apparently theres 2 camping fields , one big open one and one in the woods a bit more private which i think the open one will be more fun but the one in the woods nicer to chill/sleep in so will see when i arrive , for next year im so tempted to pop up a Europe trip in the events with the help of others of-coarse, there used to be 1 trip a year with chris (madscots) to usually germany and it was amazing , loved those trips , its something were missing a wee euro trip once a year, what do you reckon ? x

I think it's an ace idea. Go for it!

I just need time to drop some weight and find myself a pilly seat, so give me at least 7 months. 😂🤣😂

Enjoy yourself immensely, I'm really envious, wish I was Stormin' the Castle. 🙄

Don't forget to take note of the start time for this Shaz, no rocking up when everyone's gone to sleep, as late as that is!

Aww, C'mon Izz-ster, Shaz is The Midnight Cowboy and to ask him to change his schedule is nigh on impossible. I'm sure he will, ride onto site very, very, quietly. 😲😵

You should use what.three.words to let others know where you've pitched, especially if trying to save a pitch for them, but also to just find each other.
