What to pack for Wychwood 2022!

What to pack for Wychwood 2022!

We are LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY from reuniting with all you lovely Wychwooders and we can't wait to see you all again! If you're feeling a bit rusty when it comes to camping, don't worry we've got you covered!

Only Bring what you need!

Whilst we are very fortunate to be able to allow Wychwooders to drive right into the campsite with their belongings, you don't want to be lugging around any bags that aren't essential to your weekend! As part of our efforts to become a greener festival we are doing lots around the festival to reduce waste, try to only bring items that you can take home at the end of the weekend.

Friday Night Disco!

It's the jubilee weekend and as such we've got the QUEEN of the Kitchen Disco, Sophie Ellis-Bextor coming to Wychwood on Friday night, dress to impress!

Forget the cash!

We'll be taking card payments across the site this year. Please be aware, however, there are no cash points on site and we will require a £10 refundable deposit for the Headphone Disco so please bring a £10 note for this. Limited cash back will be available at our 2nd bar.
