Events happening today
09 July 2018
Nudefest 2018 will again be held at Thorney Lakes Caravan and Camping Park, Muchelney, Langport, Somerset (TA10 0DW) from Monday 9th July until Monday 16th July. The large rural site will be completely clothes free from 1700hrs on the Monday which gives early birds time to strip off and catch up with friends prior to the official opening at 1500hrs on Tuesday. Between these times the events team will be setting up plus organising a press and media morning so facilities may be limited, but we will do our best to ensure we are up and running as soon as possible.

International visitors are particularly welcome at Nudefest and INF-FNI card holders receive discounted rates. Bristol International airport is a short journey away with bus connections to the nearby village of Curry Rivel via Taunton. BN will then, if notified in advance, arrange collection from Curry Rivel.
The Nudefest camp site at Thorney Lakes consists of two main camping areas Orchard (previously Village, right of entrance) and Greenfield (previously Quiet, left of entrance). At the far end is Willow Field, a huge area of open space (was called the Rally field, with a large toilet trailer) and the place if you wish to pitch with friends. British Naturism will be hiring in extra luxury toilets and showers (even more than last year) to complement the existing ones and we will work hard to create a festival feeling with a huge main marquee (bigger than last year) plus several smaller ones clustered around this to form an L shaped sheltered sun trap, with craft, massage, catering and shops areas. Everyone is encouraged to sit and chat here creating a friendly village like atmosphere to encourage the community spirit and helping people, perhaps new to naturism, relax and make friends.
The main marquee will house a well stocked bar selling locally produced ales, cider and lager manned by Tim and his friendly professional team of helpers. Attached to this will be a smaller quieter 'lounge' area with free daily papers. Further along will be the catering marquee providing meals throughout the day. Next to this will be a ‘pop up’ Gazebo for acoustic entertainers, show and tell, workshops, stories etc and further along the large Craft tent.
Nudefest 2018 is the biggest naturist festival in the Country and Official Opening is from 1500hrs on Tuesday with a Mad Hatters tea party with a free cream tea and live music, giving everyone a chance to say hello to one another. The programme will be worked upon in the next few months but will roughly consist of craft sessions, yoga, painting, fishing contest, 5k/10k run, live music, drum workshop, Morris dancing, outside visits, Gin Distillery, Newton House near Yeovil www.newtonhousegin.co.uk (generally clothes free), traditional discos along with the famous silent disco, clay pigeon shooting, barn dance with rodeo horse, quizzes, fire walking and a host of other activities all designed to keep people entertained from 0830 till late in the evening. Last year we had over 85 different sessions.
To help people get the most out of the week we suggest a few items people may wish to bring along, a plate and cutlery to cut down on waste if using the catering facility, pedal cycle to get around on - the site is huge, a daft hat for the mad hatters tea party, fishing equipment for the fishing contest, a local beer for the Mi Beer sessions, Cowboy hat for the barn dance, any musical instrument you may wish to play, if you have a hobby or interest you could use the Pop Up gazebo to showcase your talent or interest, perhaps you may also wish to bring along your Starship uniform for the Saturday's Mothership adventure – think star trek meets alien, or perhaps you would simply just want to bring along the kettle and a deck chair..…
The entrance fee includes all the on site entertainment which costs £1,000’s - with the exception of the fire walking which we will be asking for a financial contribution towards and outside excursions.
Electric - we suggest that people consider sharing electric points with friends but the main two camping fields Orchard and Greenfield are for people staying the whole week with Willow Field, available to take any number of people and short term stays, but is limited to 48 daytime electric points (daytime electric is switched on and off when the main marquee generator is switched on and off). An electric point for charging mobiles and the like will be available for those without access to electric.
Where possible we will site people together with friends.

14 July 2018We will be meeting at the farmer's field car park (£3 in the honesty box) between 10.30 and 11.00, when we shall walk together to the beach.
To get to the car park: at Monknash village turn off Heol Las to go past the Plough and Harrow pub and follow the lane for about three-quarters of a mile until you come to the car park on the left. Please park sensibly and don't leave any valuables visible in your vehicle.
To get to the beach: NB the walk is not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Walk down the lane until you come to a gate and a stile. The gate is locked, so you must use the stile. Follow the rough path down through the nature reserve until you come to another stile. Once over, the path opens out and at the end is a pebble beach. Turn right (north) and cross the pebblesand the flattish rocks, go round the first headland and you come to a wide expanse of sandy beach. We usually set up about halfway along.
Beware! Parts of the path can be slippery, wet and muddy, even with recent dry conditions. Make sure you are wearing suitable footwear. Avoid the cliffs - this is an active coastline with frequent rock falls. Bring plenty to drink. Late arrivals: if we've already left for the beach, just follow the above instructions and look out for a BN orange beach tent on the sandy part.
When we leave the beach we usually stop at the Plough and Harrow for a drink. They also serve excellent meals.

14 July 2018 08:00 11:00Nudefest Naked 5K/10K Run Information
Nudefest 2018 is a week long clothes free festival held in Somerset. On Saturday 14th July a naked run will be held around the site, with runners completing either one or two 5k laps. Registration is from 0900hrs and the run starts at 1100hrs. The run is completely within the grounds of the site which is a large rural farm complete with a number of idyllic fishing lakes.
All naked competitors are required to sign a 'fitness to run' form and under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult. To take part runners may simply pay the Festival Day Visitor entrance fee £25 and this will entitle them to take part in the run and to also enjoy the festival for the whole day. Entry fee is the Day Rate so those already at Nudefest have entry included in their tickets, but must register for safety reasons.
Naked runners will receive a medal and certificate for taking part and can, if they so wish have an official photograph taken of themselves to prove they have completed a ‘naked’ run. Private photography is not allowed at Nudefest and runners are asked to respect this. Runners are advised to wear suitable footwear.

14 July 2018 10:00 16:30An exciting opportunity to attend full day Naked Yoga Vinyasa Nixitsya - Standing Posture Series for more experienced practitioners, in Brighton with Annette from Naked Yoga London.
Vinyasanixitsya; An Exploration into Accessing a Series of Asymmetrical Standing Postures with Balance, Effortlessness and Integrity
Putting into practice and challenging further what we have covered in both the Foundation and Level 2 Courses. This workshop focusses on establishing support and effortless balance in the body through the integration of bandhas, throughout a series of progressive standing postures .
This workshop is suitable for people who have experience of practicing The Dynamic Yoga Method, preferably having attended both the Foundation and Level 2 Courses with Annette, and have felt comfortable with working at that level, or for those who have substantial experience of another good yoga practice.
Annette is a renowned teacher and her classes are taught in the Dynamic Yoga Method. This practice comes from a point of non-duality, embracing the whole, both spiritual and the sensual. It is based on sensitivity, honesty and openness to what is actually happening, respecting and responding to the body's innate intelligence.
For full details of this foundation course, please visit the website below for booking and directions.
