50th Escort Anniversary Display
We will have a large selection of historic Escorts from throughout history arriving at Brands Hatch. They will be displaying the beauty and history of the blue oval, as the Escort turns 50 years old. A variety of MK1 and MK2's, as well as many other models, will be making an appearance at the event on Sunday.
The campsite opens at midday on the day before the event, and closes at midday on the day after the event has finished. Please note - limited facilities will be provided during this time.
You are welcome to bring your car or bike onto the campsite with you. Please head to the main entrance on arrival, and you will be directed to the campsite.
Caravans and Motorhomes are permitted and will be directed on arrival at the venue.
There is no shop located on the campsite, but there are supermarkets nearby, including a Co-Op in West Kingsdown (approx 15 minute walk), and our circuit restaurants will be serving hot food, snacks and drinks.
BBQs are permitted as long as they are raised off the ground, but open fires are not permitted. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol too.
Animals are not permitted anywhere on site at Brands Hatch (except Guide/Assistance dogs), including the campsite.
Please keep noise to a minimum after 23:30. This includes the use of generators wherever possible, particularly if they are portable external units. Any campers that persist in making excessive noise after this time may be evicted from the campsite without refund of ticket fees, or even banned from the venue permanently in extreme cases.
Road-registered vehicles are permitted within the campsites, but scooters and mini-motos are not permitted. Please be considerate of others and keep vehicle movement to a minimum. Sleeping in vans is not advised.
Campers under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an appropriate adult.
Strictly no animals are allowed on site at any time, however Guide/Assistance dogs are permitted when pre-arranged with the venue.
Open fires are not permitted on the campsite (no wood burning). Barbecues are permitted but must be raised off the ground. Please dispose of coals and single use barbecues (once cool) in the metal bins provided.
Never leave a hot stove or barbeque unattended. Keep roadways and fire lanes clear at all times. Store fuel and generators away from ignition sources. Fire extinguishers are located at various fire points around the campsite. Use only in an emergency and raise the alarm immediately.
The campsite speed limit is 10mph. Only drive if strictly necessary and watch for children.
Secure tents and gazebos carefully - always prepare for high winds!
Never use a portable barbeque or gas burner inside a tent, awning or enclosed space (for cooking, or heating when cold). A cooling barbeque can also give off poisonous gas. Never run a generator inside a tent, awning or confined space. Consider purchasing a Carbon Monoxide alarm and use it inside your caravan or motor home if running an installed gas appliance.
Always check your gas cylinder for damage before using. Maintain good ventilation when using portable gas (remember to use it outside only).
Never smoke near any gas cylinder and keep all ignition sources away.
