INFO & FAQ'S

Location

Orbit Fitness Festival is held in the beautiful grounds of Hopton Court in the small village of Hopton Wafers, Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire DY14 0EF . The festival site will be signposted off the main A4117 Cleobury Mortimer to Ludlow road. Please drive slowly through the village of Hopton Wafers. Sat Nav postcode - DY14 0EF.  To minimise traffic issues, we will be operating a one way system in and out of the festival site.

Tickets
When you have purchased tickets online, you will receive an email confirming your order. This is your eticket which you must print off and bring with you to the festival or have it available on your mobile phone. The earlier you buy your tickets the cheaper they are. There is a small online booking fee to cover the admin costs, however it is much cheaper than many other festivals. Tickets are non refundable, however it is possible to transfer your tickets to someone else.
Wristbands
To save time on arrival we will post you your weekend wristbands and camping passes in advance. You will only be allowed entry onto the festival site wearing valid, official Orbit Fitness Festival wristbands. Please be wearing your wristband on arrival as this will fast track you onto the campsites. Saturday only wristbands will be picked up from our onsite box office on production of your eticket.
Camping
You have the option of up to four nights camping at Orbit Fitness Festival in one of three zones. You must purchase a weekend or Saturday day ticket to be able to camp at Orbit Fitness Festival. All camping pitches are suitable for tents, cars, motor homes and small caravans. If you are part of a club or group it is possible to arrange an area in general or family camping if you book six or more pitches. Please email us in advance if you would like more information on club or group camping.
General Camping - Pitches and roadways are marked. This area is closest to the arena.
Family Camping - This is a little further away from the arena and is aimed at families enjoying the same space. 
Glamping - Nestle into your own white canvas, boutique bell tent and enjoy a VIP camping experience with extras such as a cosy queen bed with fresh white linen, atmospheric fairy lights, Moroccan boho rugs, plants, mirrors and furniture. Book glamping pitches HERE direct with our exclusive suppliers - Tee & Toast Glamping.
You need to book one of the areas in advance if you want to camp at Orbit Fitness Festival. Book one camping pitch per tent with car, van with awning, motor home or car with small caravan - NOT per person. Each pitch is approx 7m x 7m. Every vehicle coming onto the camping fields will need a pre-booked zone pass which will be sent out in the post with your weekend wristbands. This must be displayed in your windscreen on arrival. Please check the important times below to see when the campsite is open.
Campsite fires, BBQ's & noise
You are welcome to have small raised fire pits and raised BBQ's on the campsite as long as you have a fire extinguisher with you and dispose of any waste when it is extinguished and not hot. Ground fires are strictly prohibited. Chinese lanterns are NOT allowed anywhere on site. No amplified music on the campsite after 11pm.
Food, alcohol & own chairs
We are responsible for music and alcohol within the event arena under the rules of our licence and therefore we cannot allow your own alcohol, bottles or glassware into the walled garden. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink to the CAMPSITE ONLY. There's a fabulous food court and bar serving gin, Prosecco, wine, local ales, ciders and lager.

Dogs
Dogs are not permitted into the walled garden arena or workout areas due to loud noise, crowding and exercising. This is for the dogs and everyone's comfort. You are welcome to have dogs on a lead in the campsite. There may be livestock in the surrounding fields. Guide or assisted dogs can be with their owner anywhere onsite.
Toilets, FREE showers & hairdryers
We have plenty of clean, well maintained toilets onsite in the camping and arena areas, plus two shower blocks offering FREE showers all weekend. There is also a communal indoor space in the Coach House with FREE electrical points for you to use your own hairdryers. We also provide an Elsan loo disposal unit for campers with portable toilets. Please use this to dispose of any portable toilet waste and do not use the standard toilets or surrounding areas.
Waste management
We are trying hard to be a green festival and even though there are bins onsite, we still ask campers to take home anything that can be recycled. Bins will be dotted around the festival site and we provide free bin liners if you require them. Would dog owners please clean up any doggy poo and dispose of correctly.
Electric hook up & generators
We do not have any electric hook up on site and do not allow generators in the campsites. ​
Catering & Traders
We have a fabulous food court and bar tent, plus a small trade village with an eclectic range of weird and wonderful goodies to purchase over the weekend. If you are interested in trading we may a few spaces left, so send us an email via our contact us page. Don't forget to grab Orbit Fitness Festival merchandise from the bar tent.
Volunteers
We love help! Without a crew of volunteers we would not be able to make Orbit Fitness Festival the beautiful weekend it is! If you would like to join the Orbit crew then use the contact us page to get in touch. It's simple - in return for 12 hours of work over the three festival days (4 hours per day), you will receive a free weekend ticket and camping pitch. There are a limited amount of volunteer spaces available so please get in touch ASAP!
Presenter line up & stages info
We are working hard to put together an outstanding line up for 2020 and announcements will be made throughout August and September. Presenters and timetables are subject to change in the event of illness or factors beyond our control. In the unlikely event of a presenter becoming unavailable we will of course find a suitable replacement of equal standing. Applications for 2020 are now open. Orbit's workout spaces are both inside and outside so last minute weather conditions may contribute to small changes in the schedule.
