This is a family-friendly camping weekend in beautiful Ilfracombe, hosts of the best NSW ever! It is open to all members of the Round Table family (Table, Ladies Circle, 41 Club and Tangent), so we hope to welcome friends from across the UK to Ilfracombe to enjoy a family-frendly weekend and the infamous Birdman event!

Tickets are just £10 per person for the weekend. So please select the number of tickets for the number of people you are bringing (under 5's are free).

At this year's Birdman, we are hoping to attract as many jumping teams as possible from the Round Table family. Birdman event itself takes place on Saturday 3rd August 2019, where brave aviators attempt to fly from Ilfracombe pier in their homemade flying machines, infront of a crowd of thousands! It is a whole day of family fun with rides, kids' entertainment, live music, great food, and a well stocked bar!

If you are interested in jumping, then to help make things smoother we are having a craft building session on Saturday morning using materials donated by a local builders merchants (RGB). All you need to do is bring nails, hammers, screws etc and anything you want to personalise your craft. We'll then transport it down to the pier ready for take-off. Friends from the Round Table family coming to visit are strongly advised to enter a team into Birdman (which you can do here). It is an unforgettable experience to make this leap infront of such a huge crowd so please do take advantage of this unique opportunity. Each team is expected to raise £200, with anything over and above being at the discretion of the jumping team.

Schedule of the weekend:

Friday 2nd August - Arrive anytime from mid-afternoon and pitch camp. While we are sure you will want to BBQ and share drinks with your fellow campers in the evening, should you need top quality food, there is an exceptional thatched inn just 50 yards from the camping site. Ilfracombe also has a plethora of incredible restaurants (with Michelin stars, Michelin Guide recommendations and AA Rosettes) and many welcoming pubs should you wish to explore beyond the camping site.

Saturday 3rd August - Breakfast will be available from 8am in the club house on the camp site, then enjoy the Birdman festivities in the harbour area (short walk from the camp site) from 11am. As it's in all-day event, you can also take the chance to explore the rest of Ilfracombe's beautiful seafront and town centre. Stroll in and out of the Birdman event, but be sure to secure a good viewing spot for the juming contest at around 6pm. It gets busy very early!

Craft building will be from when you awake until 11am when the event opens.

Sunday 2nd Aug - Breakfast again from 8am. Sunday afternoon will be time to break camp and say farewell. But we will aim to give you lots of ideas for how to spend your last hours in Ilfracombe (with boat trips, family theme parks, beautiful walks and lots more that Table family friends can take part in together.

Please contact us if you wish to stay until the Monday, this should be feasible if we know in advance
