Upton Blues Festival - Motorhome Hire

Upton Blues!

Across the weekend they offer over 100 gigs, with nine pub venues and three outdoors main stages. It has been incredibly successful for a volunteer run festival and is now in the league of the bigger professional festivals in the country.

History

Back on 2001, seven Upton locals formed the idea of the blues festival, and chipped in £10 each to form a fund to get it started. It has grown exponentially since then, and still managed to stick to their ideals for the event.

In 2012, it was nominated in the UK Festivals Awards and every year they bring a top quality platter of music, drink and fun to the streets of Upton.

 

Keeping it free

One of the unique features of Upton Blues Festival is the notable lack of sponsorship. To keep it this way, they simply ask that visitors choose to use the official campsite, and park in the official car park – as well as buy some beer from the Festival bar and maybe a programme or a t-shirt.

Some small local businesses have contributed to getting the show on the road, and the organisers actively encourage festivalgoers to show them some support too. That’s it!

Camping

The best partner to a weekend at the Upton Blues Festival is a luxurious UnbeatableHire motorhome. Imagine getting back to your own little palace after a night in the town, with a comfortable bed and all your own facilities. You can cook your breakfast on a full-size cooker and relax ready for another day’s partying.

The Upton Blues Festival campsite has always been planned to create the best experience possible for their guests. They ask that festivalgoers are careful not to accidentally book in with the other campsite in the town which has been known to claim it is the ‘official camping’ despite contributing nothing to the Festival.

The campsite is open to well behaved dogs too – but make sure your dog would be comfortable with the crowds as it’s known to get busy at the gigs.

 

Upton-upon-Severn

Upton itself is a beautiful town to visit. It used to be a port, and now the River is bustling with tourist boats and walkers. There are many quaint historic buildings, as well as the inns and pubs which form the basis of the Blues Festival.

Upton has become well known for its festivals – aside from the Upton Blues, the town hosts Folk, Water and Flower festivals through the year.

Places to visit

Why not make it a proper break, and spend time visiting some of the other delights in the area?

The Malvern Hills

Described by some as a mini mountain range, the Malvern Hills are well worth a visit. This is an ancient formation, with some of the oldest rocks in England to be found here. There are plenty of options for walkers – challenging uphill climbs (so much so that Mallory trained here for his climb up Everest), or gentle tree-lined slopes at the foot of the hills.

Severn Valley Railway

An ideal day out for steam fans, or anyone wishing to soak up the picturesque Midlands countryside. They offer a range of options from simply taking a ride on one of the locomotives, right through to their exclusive ‘Footplate’ experiences where you have the opportunity to drive and fire up the train!

Worcester Cathedral

This cathedral is a beautiful example of its kind, with interesting architecture and a history dating back to 680. It welcomes thousands of visitors every year, and offers tours up its tower to anyone prepared for the 235 spiral steps…

 

So if you fancy a blues-filled trip to Upton-upon-Severn then book your motorhome online today and get your show on the road!
