WHAT IS A 'PODPAD'?

Originally just a crazy idea over a pre Glastonbury Festival beer, back in 2004, saw six hand built units backstage behind the Bandstand. 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.
