Local vintage tent business, Vintents, is making life easier for Hebden Bridge festival goers with pop up camping at Old Chamber Farm.

Hebden Bridge farmer Ann Jones has set up a temporary campsite just a ten minutes’ woodland walk from town. And if the punters don’t feel like bringing their own tents, they can hire a pre-pitched retro canvas tent for the weekend from Vintents.

Former Calder High School student Harry Collett, 22, set up Vintents last summer when he saw a gap in the boutique camping market.

“Pre-pitched boutique camping is becoming ever more popular at UK festivals and it gives people the opportunity to get back to nature and camp in comfort,” said Harry.

“We are a small, growing business with five festivals lined up for this summer. We can’t wait to get some tents up in the glorious Pennine hills.”
