Join us for a special camping weekend packed with activities, entertainment and workshops for all members of the bleeding disorders community in the beautiful woodlands of central Derbyshire.

HaemFest offers you the chance to meet people with bleeding disorders of all ages from around the UK, to enjoy a weekend of fun, friendship and experience-sharing in the great outdoors.

Admission is absolutely FREE, though you will need to complete an Eventbrite booking so we know who is coming. If you are staying in a tent, then there are no accommodation costs either. If you are planning to come along with your caravan or motorhome, then regular campsite fees apply and you will need to book your space directly with the campsite (see below for details).

Events kick off on Saturday at 9 am.

HaemFest highlights include:

  • an art tent for children
  • belly dancing taster sessions
  • Cèilidh dance on Saturday night
  • circus skills workshop
  • cricket coaching
  • drop-in workshops on bleeding disorder care
  • face painting
  • introduction to gymnastics (yoga mat or towel to sit on)
  • introduction to meditation class (yoga mat required)
  • stage combat (parents must supervise children)
  • Tai Chi and Qi Gong taster sessions
  • yoga session (yoga mat required)

There will be loads of activities to try, but if you want to simply relax and watch the world go by, then that’s fine too. All activities are on a first-come first-served basis.

Located in the picturesque hamlet of Golden Valley, Golden Valley Caravan and Camping Park is set within 26 acres of woodland. We have a separate rally field for tents and Haemfest activities, with its own toilets, shower block and washing-up facilities. Campervans and pods are based just a five-minute walk away at the main campsite.

Please bring your own food for the weekend (we are not able to cater for specific dietary requirements). The on-site cafe (on the main campsite, not the rally field) stocks a variety of food and drink options along with different choice options from the menu, to eat in or take away. Takeaways/restaurants are also located a short drive from the campsite in Ripley, Heanor and Alfreton. You can also get takeaways delivered from Deliveroo, Just Eat and UberEats

There is no bar at HaemFest (on the rally field), although there is one on the main campsite. Parents are responsible for supervising their children at all times. Please ensure you have read the campsite’s rules and regulations before booking your place. By booking, you are confirming that you have read and will abide by the campsite’s rules.

The campsite is dog friendly, with a charge of £2 a day.

If you have more questions about the weekend, we have frequently asked questions and information about our activities on our website. Just click on the red link.

Safety is a priority. Therefore, we ask that parents supervise their children at all times.
