Castle Donington is also getting ready to rock with the Download Festival which will take place from 8th – 10th June 2018 at Donington Park.

Thousands of hardy fans flock to Castle Donington to attend the annual festival whatever the weather – heavy rain can see the site becoming a mud bath but, fingers crossed, fine weather is (currently) being forecast for the festival weekend.
This years fesitival kicks off on Friday 8th June with 4 different stages. Guns N’ Roses, Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson will headline this years events with nearly 100 bands in support. Off-Stage there is also a variety of entertainment for everyone to enjoy…. Fairground, WWE Live, Cinema, Comedy Tent….

Many of the rock fans camp for the entire weekend, but others prefer a little more luxury. If your one of those people, why not enquire about renting one of our Serviced Apartments. The apartments offer home-from-home comforts and more relaxation than a standard hotel/campsite. All 6 of the properties are ideally located for walking to and from the festival with maybe a stop off at The Nags Head en route! Tel. 01332 856 995 for more information and availibility.
