CAMPING: EATMT is very grateful to local musician, dancer and seasoned caravan/camper, Jan Robinson for sourcing details about camping. For a list of local campsites see below:

MINI BUS & CAMPSITE TAXI SERVICE: We have sourced a local mini bus to taxi campers from the closest sites in to Stowmarket for Friday night and back again and in to Stowmarket and back again for the day/evening on Saturday. This can only be organised if there are enough people who wish to use the service. Pricing for this extra option will be confirmed once numbers are known. If you ARE interested in booking a seat to get you in and out of Stowmarket over the weekend, please email with what you would be interested in booking – eg Friday night return journey; Saturday 10am outward, return 5pm or 11.00pm.

Please note, this service will only be operated if there is sufficient uptake.
