Fieldview festival Details: Guest tents were furnished with full height beds, handwoven rugs, a table, mirror, lighting and cotton bunting. Situated in a quiet corner of the festival site, the glamping field afforded fantastic views towards the stages, with easy access to all the site amenities.

The crew/artist tents were installed eight days prior to the festival to provide crew accommodation during the build and break-down phases, and for artist use during the event itself. Situated in a backstage production area of the site this mini-village meant crew could relax and recharge in com-fort.

The chill out tent was an open-sided structure providing space to chill and re-charge for guests (and their phones) with bale sofas, giant beanbags and snuggly blankets. Lit with festoon lighting and decorated with bunting flags, it provided a central area for the glamping village.

The Great British Glamping crew also provided check-in and wrist-banding for guests, helping carry luggage and providing an introductory tour of the festival. Even Fraser the trusty Labrador provided some often-needed canine friendship!

Feedback: Fieldview Festival’s director said: “We were delighted to work with GBG again on the festival. Not only is their service superb, they bring unrivaled personal service and touches from their team which set them apart and make them a big hit with guests and crew alike. They are leg-ends and a core part of what we create here – thank you!”

Masked ball hut interior

Details: The Shire Huts is totally independent when it comes to the set up and take down of its huts. Its organised team loves what it does and takes great pride in making its glamping area invit-ing and magical. There is a communal fire pit set up in the middle of the huts, which is a great way for everyone to get to know each other and become friendly hobbit-shire neighbours! Colourful fes-toon lighting is also run all the way along the huts.

The company arranges all the meet and greets with guests and is on call 24/7 during an event.

Feedback: “Staying with The Shire Huts is like spending time with our extended family. The huts themselves are magical, bijou, cosy and so much fun to stay in! Plus they are secure and have electricity – bonus! Hannah is wonderful; her customer service is second to none, though we have never had an issue in the five years we stayed in them at festivals. They even hire out for wed-dings! I know, because they were at mine and were amazing. I can’t recommend them enough for the ultimate glamping experience.”
