Mildenhall Rally

Postby pete75 » 28 Mar 2019, 1:03pm

Apparently there is no camping at this year's Mildenhall rally. Anyone know why as it's in the same location as the last couple of years when there was camping.

Nope. Ask them at http://www.mildenhallfestival.bike and let us know? I know people who have camped there past years who would probably like to know.

https://sites.google.com/site/thenookca ... price-list looks the lowest priced of the nearby campsites. The others seem to have bank holiday charges or per-person with minimum pitch prices which work against solo cycle tourists, which seems especially odd for the one marketing itself as "eco".

Those on the mailing list should have received an email - basically saying victim or their own success and not enough new volunteers coming forward.

The Mildenhall Rally/Festival/Mini-Festival mailing list, the one I've been invited to go on each year I've attended, either in the program or with the booking. I missed last year but still get the email updates.

Thanks. Curious. I missed last year but went the year before and get no emails. I wish they'd put news on one of their three web pages as well as emailing.

They will eventually put it on their website but there is an embargo on the news until tomorrow. It is sad news, speaking to Maggie last year I thought there would be changes, the possibility of no trade stands being one, but didn't expect no camping at all.
There is your way. There is my way. But there is no "the way".
