Yorkshire Glamping Festival ‘Glampfest’ and Why it’s One of the Best Family Events to Attend in 2024
A popular North Yorkshire family festival held in fields near Scotton is returning and set to almost double in number after a roaring success last season. The glamping festival has been running since 2017 bringing family campers a whole range of fun activities, live music from local talent, kids activities, abundant street food and hand-crafted produce to enjoy.
This Yorkshire-based festival, ‘Glampfest’, was inaugurated by camping enthusiasts James and Sarah Martin to bring their Glawning customers together. These Glawnings – luxurious driveaway bell tent awnings – were designed by them, a husband-and-wife team, as a classy alternative to nylon awnings after struggling to find anything nice enough to attach to their vintage campervan. The business grew organically as the customer base spread and the awnings can be attached to almost any leisure vehicle to provide a beautiful extra space. The stunning, innovative awning really stands out at festivals and campsites across the UK – and none more so than Glampfest which sees the largest turn out of Glawnings adorning the fields making a glamorous spectacle to behold.
Glampfest 2024, held in fields on Market Flat Lane near Scotton, promises to be the biggest and best yet as founders James and Sarah, continue to join forces with the Mighty Events team to expand the festival and launch new areas for attendees to enjoy such. Glampfest 2024 will have a dedicated Sports Zone, Zen Zone, Acoustic Lounge, Photo Booth, a cookery demo from Great British Bake Off Contestant Karen Wright and more, in addition to the well-loved elements of last years offering which saw a delicious variety of food and drink vendors, forest school, storytelling, yoga, massage, crafts, face painting, PE sessions, archery, drum workshops, stalls of hand-crafted products, and lots of stunning camping setups to ogle.
This Yorkshire-based festival set up by campervan enthusiasts James and Sarah Martin in 2017 off the back of their growing Glawning business and has gone from humble beginnings of 100 attendees to an impressive 1500 head count in 2023 and is set to almost double in 2024.
A festival for the whole family to enjoy with a wide range of activities, live music from local performers, street food and glamping set ups. Fundraising is undertaken for a different chosen charity each year. Day or weekend camping tickets are available, and everyone is welcome. You don’t need to own a Glawning to attend but you might want one by the end of the weekend when you see what they can do!
Glampfest will be held on the 10-12 May 2024 in fields on Market Flat Lane, Knaresborough.
