Camping and glamping offered at VET Festival 2018.

Delegates at VET Festival 2018, in partnership with Centaur Services, will be able to relax and recharge in the idyllic Surrey countryside, as camping and glamping accommodation will be offered onsite at the outdoor conference in Loseley Park, Surrey on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June.

VET Festival is working with Pillow, the festival and events company, to provide delegates with pre-pitched tents located within the grounds of Loseley Park, and a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the main festival field. Camping and glamping accommodation at a CPD conference is unique to VET Festival and encourages delegates to socialise and network with fellow campers.

Be it rain or shine, a number of facilities will be available on the campsite such as regularly serviced toilets and showers and provision for charging phones and laptops. A dedicated Pillow ground crew will also be on-hand 24/7 to help answer any delegate queries.

Glamping accommodation is also onsite for those delegates who prefer their home comforts. Facilities are a four or five-metre bell tent including single airbeds, fitted sheets, duvets, pillows, throws, rugs and a battery operated lamp. 

Director of Pillow, Lou Buckley said, “Pillow is a leading pre-pitched camping and glamping company operating at over 30 major British events, and we are pleased to now add VET Festival to that list! As an official partner for their 2018 event, we will offer a range of great-quality tents and facilities to make your stay at VET Festival in Loseley Park simple and fuss-free, meaning you can focus on your learning whilst making the most of the festival atmosphere!”

The campsite will be open from 2 pm Thursday 7th June until 10 am Sunday 10th June. Delegates are required to book camping facilities ahead of the event through Pillow. For further information, please visit the website

The full conference programme is available on the VET Festival website. A Practice Package is available offering a two-day pass to groups of four, with the Practice Manager attending free. Tickets are available to buy on Eventbrite

VET Festival
VET Festival is a CPD conference for companion animal veterinary professionals and is in its fourth year. Conceived by Professor Noel Fitzpatrick (Managing Director of Fitzpatrick Referrals), VET Festival launched in 2015 at the University of Surrey before it relocated to Loseley Park in 2016. VET Festival has presented many world-class speakers from across the world to make it the most engaging, clinically relevant and innovative CPD conference in the UK. Multiple lecture streams take place in a professional and contemporary atmosphere, which is combined with an exhibition arena for industry representatives.
