Relax, Make Friends, Dance and Enjoy the Show
* CAMPING ON SITE IS NOW SOLD OUT*. Sorry, we are no longer able to offer camping on site. There’s plenty of local campsites or hotels in the immediate area. We recommend The Cock Inn at Hanbury for biker friendly alternative camping- they are 8 minutes drive from site and offer hot showers, space for 20 tents and 5 camper vans/motorhomes. Book by emailing them at email@example.com. If you prefer a hotel, there’s many in the surrounding areas including the Premier Inn at Burton upon Trent (17 minutes to site). *Please note the evening entertainment is only for those camping at Tutbury Castle*
We are fortunate to be able to offer camping right next to the show, within the grounds of Tutbury estate.
As the show is as much about making new biker friends as it is connecting old ones, we wanted to ensure we provided the facility for both groups and single visitors to meet in a relaxed environment. Where better to make new friends than round a roaring camp fire with a drink in hand? We also have entertainment on both Friday and Saturday evening so bring some dancing shoes- see below!
We are also mindful that the biking community is all over the UK, so we also wanted to ensure we were not discouraging those from far away from visiting…as a few hours each way in the saddle can be a literal pain in the bum! A camping pass provides you camping for both Friday and Saturday night plus some entertainment in the campsite on both evenings, so no need to rush. *A show ticket will need to be bought in addition to a camping pass.*
The campsite has basic facilities including toilets and there will be a campsite marshal posted all night if you need to ask any questions. There will be food and drink to purchase- hot and cold drinks, hot food and a bar serving a range of alcoholic drinks.
There is a very short walk (1-2 minutes) from the car/motorcycle parking area to the campsite which is within the show ground. There is a designated area for live-in vehicles.
To book campsite passes alongside your ticket book here. Camping passes are valid from 4pm on Friday 20th August- 10am on Sunday 22nd August.

Friday Evening Entertainment- Country Star Biddy Ronelle
We’re putting on some fabulous entertainment on the Friday evening so you can come and pitch up your tent without rushing, then listen to some amazing country music! Biddy’s live set is included as part of the camping experience.
Biddy Ronelle is a Derbyshire based Americana singer-songwriter who has had a stellar first year on the UK country scene. A #1 EP with Aftershocks in January 2020, a #1 single with Thrill in Summer 2020 and numerous top 10 hits and collaborations before and since, Biddy has truly cemented her place in country music. A voice akin to Kelly Clarkson and Brandi Carlisle, Biddy brings a rockier take on country music- bringing both the light and dark together to tell stories that need to be heard. Sometimes dark and twisty, sometimes light and honest but always featuring some heavy guitar shreds and astonishing vocal prowess.
Described as a “Darker Lady Antebellum” by Belles & Gals and nominated for a string of songwriting accolades, it looks set to be an exciting second year for Biddy. Having appeared live in session on the Gaby Roslin show on BBC London in late 2019, Biddy has since being featured on numerous radio stations and streams around the world including (but not limited to) Country Hits, Chris Country, BBC Introducing (Sheffield, East Midlands) as well as regional playlisting on BBC York, Nottingham and Sheffield. Her recent charity single for Help Musicians ‘Let The Music Play’ was also picked to feature on the HotDisc Best of British & Irish Country 2020 edition. Biddy has featured on streams such as Nash Nights UK, The Sound Lounge, Modern Age Music Roots and as a regular on DC Brown’s Country writers rounds.
Biddy’s EP Aftershocks was also picked as one of Paul Sexton’s favourite lockdown finds and featured in an interview with Elles Bailey’s Feedback Radio show. 2020 was set to see Biddy tour with her band to venues across the UK, however these plans were abandoned due to the pandemic. However, as she plays both keys and guitar, Biddy has been making the most of live streaming and assisting in charity projects for the NHS. These included the hit pop single ‘Pass On The Rainbow’ with the Rainbow Collective, which is now featured in the Museum of Liverpool as part of the pandemic efforts installation. Biddy also began the new ‘Alternative Country Hour’ on countryradio.uk which features new and old genre blending country music. Alongside country music, Biddy works as a professional theatre performer having appeared on the West End and internationally- she is currently lead female vocalist in the multi-award winning stage show The Chicago Blues Brothers. Biddy teaches singing at a top UK performing arts college, shaping the performers of tomorrow. Biddy also works as a pop songwriter and has had a recent pop single released with singer Chelsea Radford breaking into the pop charts this summer.
Saturday Evening Entertainment- Rachel Chambers
In order to make friends and have some fun we’re putting on some fabulous live music on Saturday evening after the show closes. The incredible Rachel Chambers will be performing classic hits to get you up and dancing! Rachel is a literal superstar, reaching the finals of the X-Factor with her band the LMA Choir, as well as being the lead singer of the 90’s dance group N-Trance (you all know Set You Free!), in addition to touring with and performing with Robbie Williams, Jocelyn Brown and many many more. HOW EXCITING! Rachel’s live set is included as part of the camping experience.
