Who’s up for a Summer Solstice meet here in Somerset?

The official Summer Solstice is Thursday 21st June and we are looking at running an event the following day, 22nd to 24th. Everyone is welcome, once we have an idea of numbers we can look at various food, entertainment and activity options.

Feel free to come early or leave later while enjoying warm evenings in the late evening sun. The pool will be open, fire pits are available, the woodland will be looking wonderful, come and enjoy some summer fun and silliness!

Update: we’ve decided to charge a flat rate of £20 per pitch per night and have taken our first booking already!!

Another update: We are now accepting bookings online at www.alpinegrovetouringpark.com
Click on one of the 'Book online' links and select "Private Summer Solstice Event" from the list of categories.


The plans..... (still being developed....)

Friday - Keeping things nice and relaxed for arrivals, chatting, drinking, some background music, communal BBQ and maybe a movie.

Saturday - a woodland yoga session (bring your own mats), arts and crafts for the kids, bit of a sports day (weather dependant) one or two other things yet to be confirmed but nothing too taxing. Pizza (provided by our friends at Swingin’ Hot Pizza) and a disco in the evening.

Sunday - a relaxed morning finishing up with a convoy to either: Perry’s Cider Mill or Charmouth Beach.

Some people have asked if there is a theme for fancy dress etc, we wanted to keep things relaxed so it will be completely optional, but the theme will be:
sunnySummersunny


We have also applied for a temporary events license which will permit us to play music a little later should we want to, but also for us to sell alcohol on site for the event. We therefore plan to have a stock of beer, cider and wine available to buy at very reasonable prices should anyone need some!!

Indeed, the A303 at Stone Henge is often very busy, especially around the Solstice, however there are several alternative routes that can taken to avoid any problems.

Yes, we'd be up for that. Since it's a good time of year and a long trip for us, we'd probably extend and make it a week. There's no Glastonbury Festival next year, so that will cut down the traffic a bit.

Well having just returned from Glastonbury and danced around up the Tor it would be rude not too!

Think we might need to watch Gill tho she had plenty of ideas of what she would like to do on her return from Glastonbury last year!

My brother has a Big 4 0 Birthday on the 22nd and we've been told to leave that weekend clear so it would seem unlikely for us but will keep you posted Sad

Ok guys, here's the scoop......

Over a cider or two at the weekend, a few of us came up with an idea. Now that we have interest from 10 Kombis, and I suspect several others who will make their intentions known closer to the event, we're thinking of doing something slightly different.

As it happens, we currently have no other camping bookings in the calendar for this weekend so we're thinking about turning the Somerset Summer Solstice into a slightly different, bigger and exclusively VW Brazibay event, possibly with some entertainment (a local covers band?) and other bits and pieces thrown in.

We're not looking to replace or otherwise replicate the Kombi Sleepover, however we may well decide to 'borrow' a few of the more popular aspects.

Yet to be confirmed, but here are some ideas:

Open air cinema night on the Friday, nice and relaxed for arrivals.
Festival style stalls or charity activities (similar to the setup at Anita's in 2014/2015).
Marquee, tables and chairs
Covers band and DJ
Fancy dress theme to follow....
Kombi Konvoy - to the beach or cider mill or both.

All thoughts and ideas welcome, let me know what you think.

Team Tallulah @ Alpine Grove
