Free family fun throughout the school holidays with the Big Little Tent Festival

24/06/2016

The Big Little Tent Festival will focus on pitching a tent in your own back garden, making memories together and exploring the nearby wildlife whilst being close to home comforts.

The Caravan Club’s very own Big Little Tent Festival will commence on the weekend of 16 and 17 July, but, if you can’t make that, families are also being encouraged to join in the fun throughout the summer holidays on a day that works best for them, right up until 19 September. Those wanting to ‘pitch-up’ and get involved for the first time should sign up to the festival experience and order their free festival pack at caravanclub.co.uk/BLTF. The packs include wristbands, bunting to help transform the garden, recipe suggestions to be cooked over a campfire (or barbecue), festival flags and invitations for little ones keen to get their friends involved in the garden camp out.

There are plenty of chances to win prizes too – every family who signs up will be entered into a prize draw to win a European camping holiday. There are BBQ prizes across the social media platforms live from now until 19 September 2016 along with Keela outdoor clothing and Dometic cool bags. Simply share your photos and videos of you showing off your outdoor cooking skills during the Big Little Tent Festival using #BigLittleTentfest16 to be in with a chance of winning.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing, The Caravan Club says:

“The Big Little Tent Festival is back for another year to encourage the next generation of outdoor lovers to embrace the summer festival season and get up close to British wildlife in their own gardens for the very first time. Plus, mum and dad can relax in the knowledge that the kettle and other home comforts are just a few metres away! We know from talking to our members that for many of them, their love affair with the great outdoors started with camping and at over 40 of our Club Sites across the UK, families can do just that.”
