Music festival's big plans for overnight camping

First published in Winchester

ORGANISERS of the Alresford Music Festival want to introduce overnight camping to attract more people.

The festival, now in its fourth year, proposes to offer festival-goers the chance to stay on the recently-purchased field next to Arlebury Park. They believe it would be a good way of solving the problem of a lack of late-night public transport.

Organisers would also like to have greater use of the facilities at Alresford Recreation Centre, such as the bar, showers and toilets. They aim to attract 5,000 people to the one-day event in July, producing a healthy profit which is shared between local charities.

Town councillors said they needed more detailed information on overnight security and insurance before they could make a decision. The issue will be discussed at the next town council meeting on February 14.
