Geeknbury Festival 2010 is a go!
The Geeknbury festival is an outdoor event with no fixed abode. For the past couple of years though, at the invite of Rebecca Caroe and family, it has existed like a ‘plug-in’ to the legendary Vann Fest. Vann fest has been going as a private party/festival for a long time now and 2010 will sadly be it’s last year.
This year’s Vann Fest is set for the weekend of the 30th of July but those attending Geeknbury can set up camp on the 29th as long as you have your ticket and are willing to help out the setting up on the Friday morning.
It is a family (and geek) friendly festival with basic wifi and openings for all suggestions of the creative kind.
Tickets are £60 for adults and £25 for all kids over 4 years old. (Under 4’s are free)
For this you get entry for the festival, camping, access to all the music amenities and activities and a certain amount of food and beer (Saturday night dinner, beer/cider/soft drinks and Sunday morning bacon butties plus tea and coffee.) Not to mention the good times, connections made and great memories to take away.
Large field – 6 acres
Loos – 5 portable
Tents – 2 – one large 40 foot by 20 foot and one 20×20 foot
Food & Beer – provided for Saturday night dinner, beer/cider/soft drinks and Sunday morning bacon butties, Coffee and tea (all covered by paid for ticket holders)
Electricity – a wired spur from the main house (and some solar charging)
Hot tubs – 2 x 8 person (one for kids, one for adults) Bring your swimmers! Wifi – is available but if you have a MiFi all the better.
Entertainment (So far)
Making water rockets from empty plastic bottles (they fire 60 foot into the air!)
Team games – non-stop cricket, rounders, football
Garden tours – Gertrude Jeykll water garden
Band(s) for Saturday night. (Want to play? Let us know)

..and here are some ideas for things that would be nice to have:
Films, a projector and screen
More music/bands and an open mic stage perhaps?
More accessible power to charge laptops and mobiles (Solar power?)
More wifi and a mobile booster aerial
A Silent Disco
Meditation ..and so on..
