The Leigh Court
Where do I pitch my tent?
On arrival, you will be shown where the camping area is. If you need a hand putting your tent up, there will be plenty of people around to help
What about loos and showers?
A limited number of showering and toilet facilities will be available on site
Should I bring a fold-up camping chair or blanket?
Seating in the main barn is provided, but we suggest you bring something for the seminars, meals, etc. As long as it's dry, most people will be sitting on the grass!
Are gazebos allowed?
Us Shift-ers love gathering people! That is why we provide opportunities which encourage us to mingle and make new friends, to welcome and practice hospitality. As there are a number of social areas at the weekend already, we recommend not bringing extra gazebos.
How do I get there?
You can either drive or train.
Is there parking?
Yes. You will be instructed on arrival where to park.
Can I get picked up from the train station?
Yes. Between 16:00 – 19:00, we’ll have cars picking up delegates from Gloucester Station every hour, just look out for the Shift t-shirts.
Where can I find the schedule?

Do I need to register on arrival?
Indeed you will - as you drive onto the farm you'll be met by the registration team where you'll receive a wristband and further directions to the car park and main campsite
What time can I arrive from?
The campsite opens from 16:00 for registration, with dinner being served from 18:00
What time does the first main session start on the Friday?20:00 - 21:30
What about people arriving late?
Ideally we’d love for you to get to camp in time for dinner, but if you will be arriving later on Friday and would like a plate put aside for you, please email email@example.com
What else to bring?
A DRINKING MUG and WATER BOTTLE ARE ESSENTIAL (let's help steward the Earth well!) as there won't be cups provided on site. Tent, Sleeping Bag, Torches, Warm clothing and blankets (the barn can get quite chilly in the evenings!) Toiletries, Medication if required, Bibles, Notepads, Monies - if you’d like to purchase any items from our pop-up shop...and most importantly, COME EXPECTANT!
Can I volunteer?
Yes! The Shift Weekend is only made possible through the amazing efforts of our dedicated volunteer team. If you'd wish to serve this year, please click the 'volunteer ticketing option'. Tickets will be fixed at the SEB price of £65
Can I bring alcohol?
We’ll be having an alcohol-free weekend and would appreciate it if you would respect this decision by not bringing alcohol onto the campsite.
Is there anywhere to charge my phone?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide plug sockets or the necessary electricity supply to charge hundreds of phones. Consider the weekend a chance to step away from your mobile device! (For those who may need their phones for important communication, we suggest bringing a charged battery pack)
How does the food and drink work?
All food and refreshments are included in the price of your ticket, and specific dietary requirements are catered for.
Can you bring your own camping stove or BBQ?
As all food is provided and particularly being aware of the working farm we are staying on, please refrain from bringing your own cooking equipment.
Are drinks and snacks available outside of meal times? Or should I bring them?
Refreshments will be available all day from our food area by the farmhouse, but if there is something specific you would like to bring then please do!
