Beetle Bank Farm is a lovely farm park near York, famous for offering a good value family day out. But did you know that, once a year, you can stay longer and make a weekend of it? Beetlefest is Beetle Bank Farm’s annual camping extravaganza, and it’s returning from 18th to 20th August 2023.
Arrive from 1pm on Friday 18th August and pitch your tent or camper/caravan. On Friday evening join local favourite Karl Mullen on his piano for a singalong. On Saturday, spend the day on the farm or pop into York which is a very short drive away. Froom 4pm, Professor Fiddlesticks will be on hand to entertain the children. On Saturday evening, enjoy an all-you-can-eat barbecue and buffet (£20 adults, under 5s free, 5 to 12 years £10), soundtracked by DJ Barry. York Astronomical Society will be onsite both Friday and Saturday evenings to show everyone the night sky and around their observatory (weather permitting). On Sunday, enjoy more time at Beetle Bank and leave at your leisure. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet some furry animals, let your kids run free and explore the brand new play area!
Ticket information – Two nights’ camping and unlimited access to the farm is £90. Friday camping only is £45 and Saturday camping is £55, both including unlimited access. Dogs not permitted. Shower and toilets available.
