Escape the stresses of everyday life by joining
Knit Aid for a glamping and knitting weekend away in the beautiful British countryside.
 

 
 

Sleep –

Sleep in a fully fitted-out canvas bell tent with mattresses or yurts with single and double beds and wood burners.

Book entire tents and yurts for you and your friends, with limited tents for single ticket holders sharing with others.

All sleeping options come with the added luxury of hot showers and toilets nearby, accessible kitchen to make yourself a cuppa, and covered eating areas.

All in the surrounds of 650 acres of countryside at BillyCan Camping in West Sussex.

 

Knit –

Knit to your heart’s content, dine under the night sky, toast marshmallows on the communal camp fire and wake up to stunning views.

Bring your current knitting / crochet project with you or purchase a Knit Aid Kit with your ticket. The kit includes a pair of our exclusive Knit Aid 8mm needles, 100% wool yarn and our fingerless gloves knitting pattern (2/5 difficulty).

Knit for yourself or for a refugee – it's up to you. We will be collecting handmade donations at the end of the weekend, should you wish to donate.
