Introducing a pre-pitched, safe, socially-distanced family camping experience at our sister festival’s site.

We’re still beyond gutted to not be welcoming you to Starry Skies this year – but we’ve dreamt up an alternative in the meantime for those of you that (like us) are still yearning for the chance to roam, connect with nature and sleep under canvas this summer.

Carry On Kelmarsh is the answer to our camping cravings. We’ve been hard at work turning our beautiful Shambala Festival site into a safe, spacious and socially distanced pre-pitched campsite for 3 separate weekends in August 2020: The 7-10th, the 14-17th and 21st – 24th.

A socially-distanced family camping experience…

Campers can enjoy access to over 200 acres of grounds, lakes, stunning gardens and (enchanted!) woods. Our team have pulled out all the stops to provide the safest experience possible (down to having your very own loo for the weekend and a minimum of 10 metres between each pitch) and we will provide as many complimentary campsite activities as possible whilst remaining in line with social distancing event guidelines.

We’ll have scrumptious food traders available for those that don’t wish to cook – as well as our beloved Shambala crew bar (which is made from an old bus!)

Bookings are now open – and some of our packages have already sold out. To check out our brochure, FAQs and to book, head here:

Some important bits

⭐️ This is NOT a festival – but a very spacious campsite in lush surrounds, with socially distanced activities.

⭐️ This is a pre-pitched only event (rather than a bring-your-own-camper-vans-and-tents affair). It has been designed to support our amazing tent suppliers who have seen their summer income evaporate this year.

⭐️  If you have any questions that are not answered in our FAQ, please pop an email to

Maybe we’ll see you all in the fields after all!
