We believe that festivals need not cost the earth.

Comp-A-Tent is a 100% compostable tent, designed for festival-goers that leaves nothing but water, CO2 and humus – a nutrient rich soil, not the tasty food.

We are building a business that takes on the responsibility of finding the means to allow our customers to truly engage in the festival spirit, without the burden of a long lasting cost to the earth.

Camplight

Camplight is an independent campsite within a boundary at an event. Camplight rents out the standard camp equipment set up, ready and waiting for you when you arrive. As our prices suggest, we are not Glamping or Boutique; we’re just a piece of common sense, among the creative craziness of the brilliant festivals that we serve.
To book with Camplight you need to buy your festival tickets first. Then place your order with us here.
We provide some basic facilities outlined on “our Facilities” page. Our Campsites are always carefully located to be close to the action so that if you book with us you won’t lose that sought after location. We also offer group bookings and guest pitches so that even if you arrive after the event starts you will not lose that location with your mates near the action. Whether you are a family, a chiller or a hedonist we do our best to group you together.
So don’t stress, just click your tent and travel light with just a weekend bag by foot, on bike, bus or train; have the holiday you deserve!

Encycled is developing a new way of providing promotional textiles for business events, conferences and festivals. By removing and re-printing branding, items such as T-shirts can be re-used leading to measurable reductions in waste, CO2 and water consumption. Companies save money while demonstrating a more sustainable way of promoting their business and inspiring end users to reduce their own environmental footprint. Encycled is a business that started life at the inaugural 2017 UNLEASH Innovation Lab held in Denmark and winner of Climate KICs London City Challenge for circular fashion.

Green Lab is an open innovation lab and ecosystem for individuals and organisations to design sustainable solutions to complex urban food, water and waste challenges. Encouraging creativity, collaboration, experimentation and play, it incubates ideas that make food systems more productive and resilient, and that can put more natural and healthy food on our tables.

We take the best from permaculture thinking, from small scale production, from experimentation, and from science and technology and design productive food systems that make the world a better place. We believe in experimentation and play; we believe in challenging what people do today; we believe that we can design away our problems; we believe in building human-scale systems.

We have built a workspace that encourages creativity and collaboration and we are filling it with food entrepreneurs and thinkers that want to build better systems.
