The hundreds of naturists visiting Cornwall for Nudefest next month will get the chance to enjoy all those experiences and more, as British Naturism holds its annual week-long summer event on the Newperran Holiday Park at Perranporth, near Newquay.
For one week only, from July 7-14, BN will take over the whole of Newperran. The whole of the site will be clothes-free for the week, including the bar and restaurant, with lots of fun events being organised.
Everyone is welcome, whether or not they are a member of British Naturism. Visitors can come along and camp on the site for just a few days, but why not come for the whole week? There’s plenty happening every day and not just on site. There will be nude visits to Skinners Brewery in Truro, Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard and the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth among others.
This will be the seventh annual Nudefest at Newperran and in that time, thousands of naturists have enjoyed the hospitality of site owners Keith and Christine Brewer; so much so, that they have been given an award by BN for their services to naturism.
British Naturism’s public relations officer, Brian Taylor, said: “We are delighted to be going back to Newperran for a seventh Nudefest. This is always a great week, one of the real highlights of the naturist year for everyone who attends.
“Keith and Christine and their wonderful staff are terrific hosts and there is always lots going on, even if you aren’t able to be there for the entire seven days.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing and using the fabulous new indoor pool at Newperran. We’ve been watching the progress on the building work throughout the winter and spring and it looks as if it’s going to be a fabulous facility. We have lots of people who enjoy swimming and playing water polo and I’m sure they will enjoy it even more now that they have an indoor pool to use.
“It’s important to stress that you don't have to be a member of British Naturism to come along to Nudefest, but it's cheaper if you do join us. Annual membership costs less than £3.50 a month and you can become a member online at www.bn.org.uk/membership/index.php.”
Visitors to Nudefest MUST book in advance. Tickets cost £20 per night for BN members or members of the International Naturist Federation, which includes the pitch fee for your tent or caravan. To save money, visitors can stop for the whole week and pay just £120 for seven days, including pitch fee. Day passes are available at £15 per person.
The cost for those who are not BN or INF members is £30 per night including pitch fee, or £180 for the week. Day passes for non-members will cost £20 per day.

Notes for Editors
British Naturism (BN) is the UK’s officially recognised naturist organisation. It exists to support and unite naturists around the UK and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2014, although its predecessors were in existence since the 1930s.
Amongst the aims of BN are to campaign for more places to be made available for naturism and to protect naturists against discrimination and Victorian attitudes to the human body.
Fact – in law, there is no offence of nudity. Various pieces of legislation and common law are often mentioned in connection with naturism but they are rarely relevant.
In the UK, there are over 130 sun clubs, swim clubs and holiday resorts and many beaches used regularly by naturists. Membership of BN is around 10,500 people with many more being members of clubs affiliated to BN.
YBN (Young British Naturists) has a membership of young men and women between the ages of 18 and 30 who get together at clubs and beaches many weekends. They represent the UK at the International Naturist Federation (INF) Youth Rally held annually
Naturism is good for you! Naturists report improvements in well-being, stress, chronic illness, self-esteem and body image. It’s also a sensible choice of dress when the weather is warm. Naturists are normal people. The only difference between activities inside and outside of naturism is the dress code.
It is a fallacy to believe that naked children are any more at risk in a naturist environment. Unaccompanied children are not permitted in naturist places and the community spirit that pervades ensures that a watchful eye is present. Despite the perception, there are far fewer problems in naturism than in more “public” places where children and adults mix. Mindful of the need to be aware of child safeguarding issues, however, BN have a robust child safeguarding policy, code of practice, and a Child Safeguarding sub-committee that meets regularly and runs workshops on the subject, sometimes to groups from outside the naturist world.
For the media, there is a dedicated “Media Centre” at http://www.bn.org.uk/media, which contains useful information for those wishing to write about naturism or to feature this wonderful world in their publications or programmes.
