Fusion information

Bookings

All bookings should be made through this website. In order to comply with legislation and to serve you well, we have to ask quite a lot of questions in the booking process – please bear with us. Your information is held securely and is not shared with other parties. The bookings window will close on Friday, 18 May 2018. Day tickets will be on sale at the gate from Sunday, 27 May to Monday, 28 May 2018. Day ticket holders may not pitch tents or gazebos.

We can’t run Fusion without lots of servers. If you are willing to serve, or would like to reduce the cost of attending, then please see our Serving page before you book.

Bookings may not be changed or cancelled after Thursday, 26 April 2018. Ahead of that date, a cancellation will incur a charge of £15 per person to cover administration and processing charges. We regret that bookings are not transferrable to other people.

Arrival and Departure Times

Arrival is from 12:00 to 19:00 on Saturday, 26 May 2018. The main departure time is from 07:00 to 12:00 on Tuesday, 29 May 2018.

It will be possible to leave straight after Main Meeting 6 on the Monday evening if you wish to. We will open the main gate to allow cars on site from 15:30 to 17:00 that day. This will allow you to pack your car, or hook up your caravan, and then move the vehicle to the Fusion Day Visitors car park. Following the final meeting, you can walk to your vehicle in the car park and start your journey home.

Whilst we want to make it easy for you to arrive and leave, we must make the site as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults. For this reason, vehicles are not allowed on site, and camper vans must be stationary, when the main gate is not open. The gate will be open at the following times:

  • 12:00 to 19:00, Saturday 26 May 2018 – arrival time
  • 15:30 to 17:00, Monday 28 May 2018 – for early departures
  • 07:00 to 12:00, Tuesday, 29 May 2018 – main departure time.

Late arrivals will only be permitted in exceptional instances. In such an instance, the Fusion team must be informed by Wednesday, 2 May 2018: contact us at info@fusionevent.co.uk. Late arrivers may not be able to camp with their church.

Camping

We have a spacious site with plenty of toilets, hot showers, standing water pipes and open areas. Most of us will be camping, and the site will be sub-divided into areas such that each church can camp together. So if you’re new to camping don’t worry, there will be lots of familiar people and friendly stewards around to help you.

Your Church Coordinator will have helpful information nearer the time of the event. If you’re not coming with a church, we will have information you can download from the Resources page on this website.

Staying Off-site

If camping isn’t for you, then you don’t need to feel left out – there are several B&Bs (Bed and Breakfasts – small hotels with a limited service) and hotels in the area. Please see Accommodation.

Accessibility

Wheelchair Users: the site is fairly flat and is subdivided by a grid of tarmac and concrete roads that are in good condition. The site is, however, sizeable – so if you camp there could be quite a distance between your campsite and your main meeting place. Let us know if this will be a problem. There will be a charging point for mobility scooters near the Arena and a disabled parking area next to the Arena. We will ask you as you book whether you use a wheelchair or a mobility scooter – this information enables us to make proper provision for you in the Arena.

We are moving the Day Visitors car park to a new location so that the walk from it to the main venue is much less than for Fusion 2016.

We have male and female disabled toilet facilities throughout the site, there will also be key-controlled unisex disabled showers.

BSL Interpretation: for those who are deaf or hard of hearing, interpretation will be available during the main meetings. We will ask whether or not you require BSL interpretation as part of the booking process.

Children with Additional Needs: there is provision during the main meetings for children with additional needs. Please see Children.

Medical

We take your well-being on site seriously. To this end we will have well qualified First Aiders available at the Arena Information Desk from 09:00 to 21:30 each day. Outside these hours your church will have its own First Aider on duty.

Electric Hook-ups

Electric hook-ups are available for church marquees and communal areas at a charge of £130.00 per hook-up. This covers the costs of equipment hire and installation. Hook-ups are not available to individuals.

Health and Safety

On arrival at the site, you will be checked in and provided with wristbands. These must be worn at all times on site.

Bikes are not permitted on site.

Other than guide dogs, dogs and pets are not allowed on site.

No open fires of any kind are permitted. Gas BBQs are permitted, other types are not.

We will have a professional security team on duty each night. We still recommend that valuable foodstuffs be kept in a locker or freezer that can be chained shut overnight.
