B&C: Site maps & info
Here's a bit of info about what you can expect from the stuff that is at the campsite for weeks B & C at the Royal Bath and West Showground. If you have any questions on facilities then just get in touch... and we'll be happy to help you out!
The camp site is divided into coloured areas, and each area is broken down in to numbered ‘villages’. Most villages have between 50 and 100 people staying on them, though some can house as many as 200 people. Each village is looked after by a ‘vilage host’. Villages are allocated by geography – i.e. groups from London will most likely all be camped near each other.
Under-18s are automatically allocated to the same camping village as their group leader. Remember you must have at least one over 18 for every six under 18's that you bring. Please also note that Soul Survivor site rules state that members of the opposite sex cannot share a tent unless they are married.
The curfew village
There is a curfew village at the edge of the site and people camping on this village are asked to be quiet between 10.30pm and 7am. There is no curfew for the rest of the site but group leaders are advised to encourage their young people to be back on their village by 12.30 and quiet by 1am. Stewards patrol the site, but less people running around the better!
The tent villages are furnished with adequate sanitation and are made to comply with fire safety standards. This includes providing hot showers, clean toilets and drinking water for each village. Some facilties are better than others, and depending on your preferred shower time, you may have to queue... a luxurious bubble bath isn't likely to happen.
The site is an agricultural showground, and although we work hard at improving it for you, it cannot provide all the facilities of a deluxe campsite. Bottled gas is available on site, but please note there are no electric hook-up points for caravans, or sockets for hair dryers or car batteries. There is a launderette in Shepton Mallet, but no laundry facilities on site.
Cashpoints, post offices and mobiles
The nearest cashpoint is in the Tesco supermarket about 1½ miles from the Showground. There are branches of most high street banks in Shepton Mallet. Post Office facilities are available in the mini market on site. There is free wifi in most of the venues on site and you can also charge your mobile phone securely in the Sports venue.
