For those who’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few years, Nudefest is our flagship summer event. This year we returned to the cider fields of Somerset (quite literally) for a week at the beautiful Thorney Lakes campsite.
The countless daytime activities, from ‘Nudercise’ to pétanque, life-drawing to interesting discussions and talks, meant that there was always something to do and someone new to meet.
Nudefest 2017 benefited from record attendance, with more campers and more day visitors than ever before. Over 400 visited this year, with many turning up on the day. Possibly down to our excellent publicity, a well-orchestrated media morning included BBC Bristol, BBC Somerset, Somerset Live and more. We also featured on BBC 5 Live.
The weather made for some excellent off-site trips to a local cider and brandy farm, Bradon Farm Garden and Muchelney Abbey. Plus some clothing-optional walks to the Pumping Station and the Cider Farm. We raised £920 at Bradon Farm for Macmillan
Naturists live to party! The evenings were packed with activity and entertainment, from quizzes and a Race Night to a thigh-slapping Bierkeller sing-a-long, with live bands and ‘The Mothership’ disco – it was one of those 'you had to be there' moments, but it was an unforgettable adventure accompanied by a killer soundtrack!
BN will return to Thorney Lakes 9-16 July 2018 - see you there?
