Camping & Catering
What you will find...
Woodland CampingRead more
The Bushcraft Show is located in the National Forest and there’s plenty of beautiful mixed woodland to choose from. Your weekend ticket includes woodland camping, allowing you to pitch a small tent in one of the lovely glades, or sling a hammock and tarpaulin between the trees. Small ‘leave no trace’ fires are permitted as long as they are attended.
Camping FieldsRead more
If you wish to pitch a bigger tent or camp by your vehicle, you can purchase a pitch on one of the beautiful meadows. Each pitch will accommodate 6 people plus a car. Small campfires are permitted on a ‘leave no trace’ basis.
Glamping ZoneRead more
Should you wish for a luxurious weekend away, we offer a glamping option in which you can hire a gorgeous tipi on the edge of picturesque ‘Botany Lake’. Each tipi is fully kitted out with memory foam mattresses, colourful rugs and lanterns, and a table for your cocktails… rumour has it we chuck in a bottle of fizz!
Each year we welcome a fantastic selection of catering stalls. There’s enough selection to eat something different each meal! Start your morning with a freshly brewed coffee, and chow down a bacon and sausage wrap or a freshly made crepe? Later on, struggle as you choose between options such as gourmet burgers, bison chilli, venison stew, stone baked pizza, baked potatoes or a hog roast. There’ll be tempting sweet treats such as homemade ice cream, waffles or fudge… and stalls offering a craft tipple to wet your whistle.

Fresh ProduceRead more
Whilst we’re sure you’ll be tempted by our catering options at The Bushcraft Show, you’re perfectly welcome to cook your own food! To help you, we’ve invited Pick’s Organic Farm to set up a ‘Pop Up’ Farm Shop offering a selection of Organic Meats and speciality sausages along with a fantastic variety of fresh veggies and other organic products.
We’re real dog lovers ourselves, and we’d love for you to bring along your canine friends! Well behaved dogs are more than welcome at The Bushcraft Show.
The BarRead more
The main bar at The Bushcraft Show 2019 is run by Tollgate, a local and independently-owned craft brewery with big ambition! Tollgate is located on the National Trust Calke Abbey Estate, and uses traditional brewing techniques that would be recognisable to early brewers in the 1800’s.
Tollgate produce a wide variety of traditional real ales from their 6-barrel brewery. They will be producing a special ‘Bushcraft Show’ brew for you to sample! Alongside their core offering, the bar will also offer a selection of cider, lager, wines and spirits.
There will also be a selection of stands offering craft tipples to wet your whistle. New for this year, we’re also welcoming the BubbleBee Co. who will be serving chilled Prosecco and Peroni from the side of a converted Tuk-Tuk.
