              The Horsedrawn Camp

 The Horsedrawn Camp, (THC), now a well-established Traveller-run festival &

events organisation, first came together in the early 1990's.  

Like-minded Travellers and non-travellers, meeting at various festivals,

drew upon their experiences of helping to run them, by setting up

their own event organisation - thereafter known as

THE HORSEDRAWN CAMP.  

 

 

THC is a professional, experienced organisation, with Traveller  -

from Gypsy to Rom,Irish to New Age - and non-traveller members

At all events you will see many a painted wagon (vardo)which are a delight

to see and give a colourful landscape to each event.

 

 

Their organisation is not only family orientated, their events are all risk-assessed

and have the appropriate licenses, which gives them a civil rappor with

the local and regional governmental departments and  Police.  

 

Solar powered Sanger Stage show - Dave Sanger is a        descent of the famous Sanger, who invented the Big top,            which that is now synonymous with the circus and                     showfolk that travel around entertanining us).             He runs a solar powered, horse drawn stage -  a unique tribute to the all the traveling entertainers gone before. 

                                    Aims & Ethos of THC

 The main aim of THC festivals and events are not only to promote understanding

and celebration of the travelling way of life through music and entertainment.

But also, and as important to the organizers, is to promotes a natural, healthy,

low-carbon footprint way of life.  

To that end solar panels are used by many, from the smallest electrical item to

the stage, it's P.A. system and lighting!!

 

 

 

Enviromental concerns and taking care of natural fauna and flora are high on

the agenda of THC, so all those attending an event are made aware of the

ECO "rules" as they enter every event.

 

 

Re-cycling facilities are ALWAYS available, with independent facility for each

type of re-cycling, AND all personal general waste MUST be removed

by attendees when they leave.

 At the end of each event organizers check the event location and remove all

re-cycling and  their own general waste to the appropriate refuse facility.

 

 Fires are allowed but are  OFF THE GROUND, to avoid damage to

the grazing area.

 

Digging holes for toileting purposes ARE NOT ALLOWED

 therefore portable toilets are provided, which are cleaned and emptied

frequently during the  event.

 

 

Dogs are kept ON LEADS, not only to avoid scaring both human and  

wild animals, but also to avoid defecation in unsuitable areas.

 

 

  

As you can see, all these rules, offer an eco friendly, safe and healthy environment for all -

WELL DONE THC!!
