There’s a Travelodge and a Premier Inn at Hartlepool Marina. Rates will vary, but obviously the earlier you book the better!

The Hillcarter and the Grand Hotel are also in walking distance of the NMRN.

Caravans and motor homes

Wake up in the middle of the action! We have dedicated hardstanding space on site at the NMRN for caravans. There’s a large supermarket just across the road, so you can keep topped up with all your supplies. The cost is just £20 per caravan for the weekend.

There will be portaloos available for caravan campers, as well as a waste disposal facility, and there will be a supply of water. There will also be overnight security. We’re unable to provide shower facilities.

PLEASE NOTE: due to restrictions on numbers, caravan spaces are only available to customers who are purchasing festival tickets. The festival subsidises the cost of the caravanning facilities for the benefit of our customers. If you wish to visit primarily to attend free/fringe events, there are a number of caravanning clubs and campsites in the area.


Indoor camping – please note new location

We have limited space for indoor camping facilities at the Presbytery House on Middlegate on the Headland. This is primarily a facility for dance teams and some festival staff. Facilities are basic, but there are showers.

Indoor camping is SOLD OUT

PLEASE NOTE: This facility is available to festival ticket-purchasers only.
