Here are some answers...
About the site
The site is not accessible for caravans and large motorhomes - it’s canvas, and limited camper vans only (10 max).
There are no electrical hookups but we will be providing free phone charging all weekend.
Basic toilets and showers are on site.
The site is a little un-even in places, the majority of the camping areas are fairly flat however bring an air bed!
As this is a festival site you will also need to carry your tent and equipment to your pitch - there is no vehicular access to the pitches.
We have a number of trolleys and wheel-barrows on-site, plus a number of willing helpers an volunteers to give you a lift. It’s not too far at all but worth noting not to bring the kitchen sink!
Food & Drink
There is no bar at NKD - you are free to bring your own alcohol.
A variety of food options including Vegan will be available on-site from our amazing caterer Jay. You won't need to cook but you can if you want to!
The site has restrictions on amplified music, they love to keep their neighbors happy!
No un-authorised sound systems will be permitted on-site.
Music from the marquee will stop at midnight.
NKD is a GLASS FREE site - No bottles or glasses are permitted.
Please use refillable bottles where you can
Dogs & Animals
With regret, no dogs or pets are allowed at NKD.
There will be a communal fire lit every evening
Open fires in the camping areas are not permitted
BBQ's & Cookers are permitted but must be off the ground
Really, do I have to be naked?
NKD is a clothes-free event and nudity is permitted 24/7 and encouraged.
Ultimately we want everyone to be happy and NKD is the perfect way for people to try out social nudity for the first time. We understand that not everyone is confident as one another and everyone’s decision will be respected.
We hope the spirit of the NKD Festival and (hopefully) the weather will allow for the perfect setting for inhibitions to be shed.
Ultimately, common sense prevails - if it’s cold put clothes on, if it’s hot -take them off!
The only time where nudity is obligatory is at Splashdown Waterpark on Saturday night - a free pass is included with your NKD ticket.
Nobody wants to see me naked!
Actually, no one is looking at your body; in fact, newbies tend to avoid looking as if their lives depend on it!
This is about YOU as a person, which is not defined by what you look like, because that’s the point! Naturism is one of the best ways to become more confident! Equally, you should never be ashamed to let people know how confident you are about yourself! What we do is safe, legal, and healthy; there is no need to “admit” to naturism! NKD instills the true values of body acceptance and shows us that nakedness is nothing to be ashamed of and is in the truest sense natural.
Being nude with others is not embarrassing.
First-timers often remark how quickly they feel comfortable wearing nothing and seeing others unclothed – in fact, it’s easy to forget that everyone is naked…and just because they are, doesn’t make for a sexually-charged atmosphere either.
I’ve never tried Naturism before!
That’s not a problem.
We understand that your visit to NKD could be your first Naturist experience. There is no pressure to undress so it’s a great way to try. Many people have been apprehensive undressing on their first time, but once they’ve done it wonder what the big problem was in the first place!
What do I sit on?
NKD etiquette requires a towel, sarong or garment to be sat on at all times - it’s the naturist way...
On your period?
You are not alone and there are several ways to make your NKD experience more comfortable.
Ultimately it is down to personal preference, some ladies preferring to wear bottoms others just using products.
Either way it’s about your personal comfort. You won’t be judged.
‘Standing out’ as a male...
The most frequently asked question posed by men!
Honestly, it very rarely happens, a naturist environment is not one that is sexually charged.
If nature does take its course then take a break, sit down and relax - ultimately be discreet.
Yeah we just said it!
If you think you are coming to some weird seedy place then think again – wholesome family fun and a zero-tolerance rule for any funny business.
We live in a world where we are made to conform, media tell us who is pretty and who is not – this is about chucking all that out of the window and enjoying clothes-freedom, and experiencing the most body positive thing you will ever do! Everyone is beautiful!
If you have never experienced it, it is Its utterly bonkers doing all these things NKD but only for the first five minutes. Honestly, after a few minutes your new, NKD world will seem very normal – honest!
Plus its good for you… so good, you were even born naked!!
Who is it for?
The event is designed for families, youth and festival spirited young adults.
Families and groups are encouraged to share pitches and make a weekend of it.
There are separate camping areas for Families and Youth.
If you ask the question ‘am I too old for this’ then being fair you probably are!
We welcome festival spirited adults particularly if you are joining extended family and friend groups.
Who is organising it?
NKD is organised by British Naturism.
We organise many events nationwide in hotels, swimming pools and festival sites, and are no stranger to hosting large-scale clothes free events
You are in good hands!
Safeguarding & Children
British Naturism is a family-based Naturist organisation. The safety and care of all our members and guests is our priority.
The whole aim of this event is to introduce the next generation to a clothes free world, and to explore that world as a family.
Children don’t care if they are wearing clothes or not, it’s adults who make them get dressed! They grow up with a better understanding of what will happen to their bodies and enjoy a relaxed, outdoor life.
We take safeguarding seriously...
At all events we work with the local police and community support teams to provide a safe and secure environment.
For NKD we have photo I.D. requirements for anyone over 18. Under 18's must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Max ratio One Adult : Three Children.
There will be official photographers at NKD - All the shots you see on this site were taken at NKD 2018 or NKD 2019.
You will only be in images if you give us permission - on arrival at NKD you will be given a wristband which tells our photographers if you can appear or not.
As you can see from the images on this site we are only after capturing the spirit of the event and not in an invasive way either. Everyone you see has consented to thier image being used.
General Photography is not permitted.
You may take pictures on your pitch or in private as long as you have the people in the view finders permission.
