There have been some significant changes in parking regulations at Boscastle due to local council decisions. Henceforth there will no longer be a facility for overnight parking in the main car park. Any folk who decide to flout this ruling face the very real risk of a parking fine.
So, the small village of camper vans that used to emerge on the Friday night of the Dark Gathering, only to slowly disappear on the Sunday, alas is now a thing of the past in this particular car park.
There will be a field set aside for Performers and Crew but there will be no facilities available. I will be informing people of where this site is as soon as it is confirmed by the local farmer. Unfortunately this option is not available to members of the public – however as a result of no overnight camping there will be more parking lots available in the main car park. Please note – Park & Ride is not available this year.
There are some excellent camping facilities available close to Boscastle for those who wish to use them. Here are a few:
There will be more updates in the weeks to come about further logistical developments for the Dark Gathering. Please watch this space.
Six weeks and counting! 🙂
