RIAT 2020 Announcement

Dear Kempsford Campers,

We are very sorry to received confirmation today that this year's Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. It's a huge disappointment for all our loyal campers and the team here at Kempsford Camping.

We have now completed the refund process for all reservations requested and transferred the remainder to the equivalent dates in 2021. The details within the 2020 booking will stay the same. Towards the end of 2020, we will be in touch with everyone who has a rollover booking to find out if you would like to make changes (party number, dates, pitch type etc). We will announce when we will reopen for 2021 general bookings at the end of this year.

We wish you all the very best health at this trying time and look forward to welcoming you back to Kempsford Camping next year for RIAT 2021, which will be celebrating it's 50th year.

Best wishes,
Adam & Jo Northen
Kempsford Camping

Continuing a family tradition

Gill and Maurice Northen set up the campsite in the early nineties after being approached by some air show enthusiasts asking if they could pitch a tent in one of the farm’s fields. Kempsford Camping quickly grew into one of the most popular campsites for the Air Tattoo. Gill, together with a family friend St John Foy, continued to build the business and successfully run it over the next decade. In the summer of 2004, due to a Northen family bereavement, Clive and Catherine Elliott took over the business and with their events expertise they continued to grow and develop Kempsford Camping into the popular campsite it is today.

In 2018 Gill’s son, Adam and his wife Jo decided to bring the management of the campsite back into the family. They are looking forward to continuing to offer camping in this prime location for RIAT from 2021.
