Join us at Bearded Theory

Bearded Theory is a multi-award winning creative and performing arts festival set in the beautiful grounds of Catton Hall in the heart of the National Forest.

Toilets and showers are a short walk away and will be shared with other campers.


Guests will be able to check in from 9am on Thursday 26th May and stay until 10am on Monday 30th May 2022.


Don't take our word for it, see what our guests say about Podpads

  • “For the past 7 years I have taken my own tent. After this year there is no going back. Thoroughly enjoyed podpadding. Your staff were marvellous. Well done!”

    JW
  • “New to camping so opted for glamping for convenience.”

    CP
  • “I liked the additional security and the provision of facilities, normally I would stay in hotels but was happy to stay on site as we were using Podpads.”

    AG
  • “Didn't not want the hassle of our own tent. Wanted to share washing facilities with hundreds, not thousands”

    JB
  • “Great atmosphere in the boutique site. Everyone is like minded including the staff and it just feels like one big family! We will be back again next year without a doubt. This time I think we will get an Octopad as they looked brilliant”

    CM
  • “Thought we'd try something different. Been going to festivals for the last ten years and always in a tent. Really enjoyed not being in a tent this year.”
