   WIRRAL FOLK FESTIVAL 2020      CAMPING & LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
 
CAMPING AT 
WIRRAL FOLK FESTIVAL


The campsite is in the extensive grounds of The Whitby Club. As you can see from the photographs the site is self-contained and bordered by woodland on one side. All concerts take place in the main building (on the left) so there is no need to leave the festival site. 

Just a five-minute walk along the main road, where local buses run regularly into Ellesmere Port and Chester, you'll find a small supermarket and cash (ATM) facilities.

 
Toilets and showers are located inside the 
building and are 
open at 8am. 

Portable toilets are located around the
campsite.  
A water point is located within easy reach of campers. 

It would be useful 
to have a torch 
handy for use 
during the hours 
of darkness.
