Overview

All our events in 2017 will be held on the land next to Dadford Road Campsite. We will update the website with additional information on public transport soon.

Now that we have had time to address the access issues on the site, the restrictions which were in place at Easter have been significantly relaxed. Please read the information below carefully.

Queries

For all site related queries about Profound Decisions events at Dadford Road Campsite, please contact Profound Decisions, please do not attempt to contact the site.

Arrival

  • The entrance to the site is marked Dadford Road campsite
  • Continue on the farm track, past the buildings, until you get to the woods that is part of the event site
  • There will be a temporary road for vehicles made from wood chip running through the event site

Our gate team will be on hand to meet you by the side of the track at the boundary of the event site. They will be able to answer any questions you have on the day and give you additional direction.

There is a temporary road made of wood chip that goes through the out-of-character camp, through Anvil and back round to the farm track. You may drive your vehicle on this road only, please make sure you only travel anti-clockwise around the road. The track is just wide enough for two cars to pass, so you may stop on the left hand side of the track to load and unload your vehicle.

Quiet Camping Field

  • Please note that at this event we are not able to use the usual quiet camp field near the entrance to the site

Due to circumstances beyond our control we are not able to use the camping field near the entrance for this event. Please do not camp in any of the first four fields near the site entrance - please drive down the farm path to the event location and speak to the gate crew for further directions.

OOC Camping Fields

  • Pitch and park available
  • Cars cannot be removed from this area before the end of the event
  • A separate extra parking is available for those who want to come and go during the event
  • PD's temporary hygiene facilities will be in place

The OOC camping fields are adjacent to the Anvil field. We will deploy our existing mobile toilet facilities here; these are recirculating toilets with a standpipe nearby for washing hands. This camp is ideal for anyone who wants easy access to their OOC camp throughout the weekend and does not want access to the permanent hygiene block next to the quiet camp.

There is a one way road going through the OOC camping field, to allow players to drive close to where they wish to pitch to unload their belongings. The alternative is to drive onto the field, park your car, and then pitch your tent next to it. If you do this, then you cannot remove your vehicle before the end of the weekend. You are welcome to drive on to the IC field first - provided you stay on the wood-chip road - to drop off your IC equipment. You will be directed to a spot on the field by our gate team and must leave your vehicle there until you are ready to finally depart the event.

There is extra parking provided on the opposite side of the farm track (shown as extra parking on the map). If you wish to camp in the OOC camping field, but need to come and go during the event then you can park your car in the quiet camp or in the extra parking area.

Tent Only Camping

  • No vehicles of any kind in this field

The field behind the woods is set aside for player camping. Some players may find it convenient to use this field if it is close to their in-character camp. Due to the nature of the ground here, it is not possible to take vehicles of any kind into this field - including our 4x4s. We have extended the wood-chip road so that it goes to the edge of the field. Players wishing to camp here are allowed to drive their vehicle down to the gate before and after the event to load and unload from there.

You may park your car in the quiet camp or in the extra parking area.

IC Camping Fields

  • No vehicles are allowed on this field - other than on the wood-chip road
  • PD's temporary hygiene facilities will be in place

We have purchased two brand new mobile toilet blocks which will be deployed in the Anvil field. These are recirculating toilets with cold water in the wash basins for washing.

There will be a temporary wood-chip road in place running through the IC field. You may drive your vehicle anti-clockwise only around this road - you may not drive off the road. You may pull up on the left hand side to unload your vehicle.

Crew Camping Fields

  • Camping for crew only

The crew camping field is for crew only. It lies beyond the out-of-character camping field. Crew may choose to camp here or in any of the player camping areas. GOD, and monster will all operate from this area.

Mobility Needs

There will be special dispensation for players with significant mobility needs. Please check with the gate staff on arrival - email us at matt@profounddecisions.co.uk to discuss what arrangements will suit you best.

We aim to make our events accessible to all and will do everything possible to help you enjoy the event.

Assistance

  • We will have two 4x4s with large trailers to help move equipment
  • We can tow trailers on and off the Anvil field

Members of our site team will be on hand with a pair of 4x4s with trailers to help players move IC equipment to areas of the IC field that are not already close to the temporary road.

Site regulations

Ground Fires

Fires must not be set on the ground, they must only be lit on the oil drums provided or an equivalent that keeps the fire off the ground. Existing fires should be completely extinguished each night. We are arranging firewood for the site. The site includes land that is actively farmed - so please do not throw rubbish that does not burn into campfires - particularly tins, bottles and bottle tops.

Rubbish

Please make sure that all your rubbish is suitably bagged and disposed of in the skip before you leave site. Do not overfill your rubbish bags - more bags are available on request from GOD at any time. The skip is located in the main OOC field. Please ask for directions if you cannot find it.
