WHAT IS A 'PODPAD'?

Originally just a crazy idea back in 2004, we built six units backstage behind the Bandstand at Glastonbury. One year later, the six 'podpads' became thirty - backstage behind the Pyramid Stage in 2005. That summer a couple of outings overseas to The Emerald Isle and Isle of Wight and.... ‘Boutique Camping’ at festivals was born.
