So what to do next....

Visit the 80's Rewind Festival website and check out what went on. You can also see quite a bit of the action on YouTube as well as pictures from our gallery from previous years!!


Tickets

You buy your own ticket(s) from the Festival's Tickets link . Please update your RSVP if you think you'd like to go and then Post a comment when you've bought your ticket so we know whose going.

The Day pass tickets for Saturday usually sell out first so if you only want to come for the one day, best get in fast. However, nearly all the tickets sold out ahead of the festival so if you want to go, get in as soon as you can.

For the majority of us that will be going for the entire weekend (the Weekend Camping pass @ £117.50), we strongly recommend booking off the Friday and Monday from work!. We will need to go very early in order to be able to camp together as the site fills up very quickly.

That's it for now... more nearer the time...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE 8th AUGUST - 7 DAYS AND COUNTING

Camper's  - we are meeting up for our convoy into Henley and we're meeting outside the H Cafe, Oxford Road, Berinsfield, OX10 7LY - coming from Oxford this is a little turn right and then left at the Berinsfield roundabout where the A4074 joins the A415. Once on the  service road in front of the row of shops, please do a little u-turn so we're all facing the roundabout again ready for going out again onto the A4074.

Because we're a large group and the huge queue ahead of us we found last time, we're going to have to leave Berinsfield at 10:30 so please be there by 10:15. Hopefully no one else has the same idea of meeting at the same place (watch out for the bikers!).

Once we're at the camp site, we'll get in the queue with all the tents and then make a land grab rush when the camp site gates open at 2PM (allegedly)! to a similar area as we went last year. With so many large tents going up, we may end up with a number of small circles interconnected.

We'll have some Pimms when we've all set-up at the end but bring some drinks and nibbles to have in the queue whilst we wait - bucks fizz is good!. I

Weather forecast is showery for Friday so please bring those umbrellas, wellies (in case) and black rubbish bags to keep things dry - see check-list below.

In previous years we've done a big group fry up in the mornings but we now suggest to bring your own breakfast stuff (stuff that will survive the heat), and for others, there is onsite catering breakfast area which will have a large range to choose from. As always I will bring plenty of milk, tea and coffee for all our brew ups but bring your own if you prefer. There will be a cool box available for Food only - not for drinks!


CAMPERS CHECKLIST

• Umbrella

• Wellies or water proof boots.

• Money (there may be onsite cash machines but don't rely on it, plenty of pound coins if you can!)

• Waterproof cagoule or similar

• Black bin bags (to cover chairs and other items)

• Suncream and a hat (here's hoping!)

• Small bottles of hand sanitizer gel

• Torch or headlamp (not off a car!)

• Fold up chair

• Mug (for tea / coffee in the mornings/nights)

• Dish / bowl / plate for breakfast

• Bedding or sleeping bags in good waterproof boxes or bags

• Earplugs - Friday and Saturday night is always very noisy!

• NO GLASS OF ANY KIND - YOU WILL BE FRISKED!

• YOUR TICKETS


Experience says its best to limit taking across the "heavy" stuff in 2 trips to/from the car park as all the gaps in between tents will become filled and cut off very quickly the trolleys and carts.

I'll be bringing

• The gazebo

• A powerpack / pump for the airbeds

• The kitchen sink !

• A table 

• A stove and kettle

• Large Water containers

• The infamous OSW Flagpole & beacon

• A cart and a trolley

• Some Pimms , Lemonade and fruit.


If anyone else can bring:

• More stoves - about 5/6 should see us through

• Some gas canisters for above

• Some lamps

• Another power pack/pump if you have them

• Another table

• More garden carts / trolleys / wheelbarrows (it's a long way from the car park to the camp site so these help keep to as few trips as possible) 

Please post below if you can bring any of these so we don't over-duplicate.

    I just want to thank everyone for your kindness and friendship. I was very touched by the whip round and encouragement to stay and enjoy the weekend after the light fingered scum pinched my cash.

    Thanks very much Derek for and Beth for such organisation.

    I will be much better prepared next year.

    Had an absolute blast yet again. Great group of fellow Rewinders, all pitching in and helping each other out to have a good time; shame about the bs's who almost ruined it for two of our gang and other camping revellers. Oh ... and the music and acts were brilliant too. Thanks to Derek for all the hard work and effortless organisation, always without a grumble.

    August 18, 2014

    It's the end of another Rewind festival and how the time has flown. We saw some great acts over the weekend, eat and drank too much of course, had great laughs and conversation and stayed (mostly) dry. Thank you all so much for helping out and giving support to everyone and making it such a fun weekend. I hope we can do this all again next year!
