Online Booking is now CLOSED for the Rockabilly Rave.
If you would like to book a chalet, or go on the waiting list for a cancellation then please email and let us know how many are in your group, or phone the Rave Office on 01424 602133.

If you know someone who already has a chalet, you can join their booking - we will need their permission and their booking reference number. You can then buy a wristband for the event via the offic

The Rockabilly Rave has been called Rockabillyland because of the unique way that thousands of rockin fans pack into the apartments which surround the music venues. Rockabillies from all over the world meet up and spend four nights in their own rockin world. There are no day passes, no 'ordinary holiday makers' coming to look at the '50's freaks... nothing to spoil that special Rave atmosphere. Just great clothes, cars, music and laughter... no wonder people don't want to leave to return to the boring modern world...

You can now choose between the different grades of apartment and between a one or two bedroom apartments. Once you have paid for the apartment everyone who books pays a set price of £99 for their wristband. Cunningly Simple!!!
The more people that join in - the cheaper your apartment

Choose the apartment that best suits your group - there are pictures below showing the layout of apartments and what you might expect to find in them.
NB. Nearly everyone requests apartments near the venue and they are allocated fairly on a first come first served basis. Most apartents are 2-3 minutes walk from the venue.
The good news is that fat wheezy old Chatabox limped from the very FURTHEST apartment on site to the venue and it still only took 4 and a half minutes. I'm not a Doctor but this probably won't kill you.

Pick a responsible adult (this may take some time) and make them the lead name of your group. Fill in all names of people attending. Now fill in how many want the additional Thursday night and how many want a Coach ticket.

Further down this page we have listed all the different ways to pay.
Remember our Easy Payment Plan allows you to pay Half of your booking now and the remaining Half before 1st June 2022.

Still Confused?

Phone the office and explain that what little brain you started with is now completely full of Sonny Burgess tunes, so you need help with anything more complicated than opening a can of lager... We understand this and will book you in for your annual therapy.
