We do not provide toilets in the caravan / motorhome field.
Q. Why do I have to pay £25.00 to park my car in a car park or £55.00 for my van / caravan / motor-home in a field?
Our main aim is to provide a value for money scooter rally, for scooterists and their families. We want to ensure our event continues as a scooter rally and does not become a music festival. Therefore we will always encourage scooter riding to our event and discourage other forms of transport, even if it means less people are able to attend our event. Please do not see this as discrimination against those who genuinely cannot ride a scooter for whatever reason, but proactive organisation to ensure our rally succeeds as a ‘Scooter Rally’ in future years to come. If you have to bring a four wheeled vehicle to our rally, rest assured that you are already getting fantastic value for money and part of your parking fee will help support the large donation we make annually to chosen charities.
In simple terms, to hold a ‘scooter rally’ you need scooters. The less scooters there are, the less scooterists will come. As a club we are not interested in hosting a music festival and the day that the event doesn’t have a significant amount of scooters on the site over the weekend, is the day we will decide to stop the event. PLEASE HELP US with this by riding your scooter to our rally.
Q. I want to position my Car / Camper van / Caravan next to my family / mates, who are on scooters and in a tent. Can I?
A. We have two areas for camping, Scooters and Tents ONLY, directly outside the main venue, or a Caravan / Camper van area, a little further away. You will only be able to park next to them if they pitch there tents in the Caravan / Camper area. No four wheeled vehicles are permitted in the Scooter Only area.
Q. I would like an electrical hook up for my tent, Caravan, camper, is this available and how do I buy this?
A. Electrical hook ups are available just outside the rally camping areas but only in advance and you will need to buy this direct from the Hop Farm. Should you wish to book an electrical hook up please telephone The Hop Farm on 01622 870 838 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and availability. You can then purchase your wristbands direct from this website or on the gate on the day.
Q. What camping facilities are on site?
A. There are clean, hot, male and female shower cubicles on site within the main shower block. There are also other toilet blocks around the site and all are open 24 hours. There is also electrical plug sockets for hairdryers etc and mirrors available adjacent to the shower blocks.
Q. Can I bring my dog to the rally?
A. Yes dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times. Cleaning up is the responsibility of the owner.
Q. Can we use a BBQ on the campsite?
A. Yes you can use a BBQ, but it must be kept off of the ground, at least three meters away from your or anyone else’s tent and safely extinguished once used. Open fires are not permitted.
Q. Can we use Chinese lanterns on the campsite?
A. No, Chinese lanterns are not permitted on the camp site due to the fire risk with tents.
