Wessex Birthday Party

This is our first event of the 2020 season. This year we are holding the party at Ibsley Village Hall, which is right on the edge of the New Forest.

The hall will be open for us to use from Friday afternoon right through to Sunday morning. The field here is not accessible, so all units must camp on the hardstanding area around the hall.

The site opens at 2pm on Friday, and closes on Sunday. The stewards for the weekend can be contacted via the Wessex mobile phone on 07939 592 200.

What’s on

Friday evening

On Friday evening we will gather in the warmth of the hall, to catch up on news, play some music and have a singalong.

American Tea

On Saturday evening we will be holding an ‘American Tea’ starting around 5pm. Please bring a plate of your favourite food to share with the group.


This starts at 7.30pm on Saturday, and features the usual range of dancing, music, singing and other entertainment.

There will be a raffle to raise funds for the Wessex Area group.

We hope to make the evening have a real party atmosphere, so we encourage you to enter into the Christmas spirit with seasonal dress, party food, celebratory drink, or just whatever you feel comfortable with!

Birthday Ceilidh

On Saturday night we will be holding a ceilidh in the hall, starting at 7.30pm. This will be an informal folk dance evening, interspersed with songs, music and other entertainment.

You can bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee is provided in the interval.

We will be holding a raffle to raise funds for our nominated charity.
