Meal Vouchers

You can now login to order your meal vouchers!

Camp Bestival Shropshire's meal vouchers can be used at a selection of arena traders between Thursday 17th and Sunday 20th August and are offered at a greatly discounted price compared to normal food prices onsite.

Meal vouchers at Camp Bestival Shropshire are not day or meal specific, which means for those who are just joining us you're able to order them before your shifts have been confirmed!

All Camp Bestival Shropshire trader meal vouchers must be pre-ordered!

You can pre-order trader meal vouchers from Hotbox for £6.00 per voucher.

To order your Camp Bestival Shropshire meal vouchers:

  • Login to Hotbox Events PAAM
  • Select the Camp Bestival Shropshire Info button.
  • Follow the instructions for meal voucher ordering.

Please note the deadline for pre-ordering meal vouchers is 11am Monday 14th August 2023.

We apologise for you needing to order your meal vouchers for Camp Bestival Shropshire so quickly this year, this is something that was out of our control!

The Hotbox compound will house a large marquee with tables, chairs, and kettles, providing 24-hour access to hot water, tea and coffee!

We will be providing some tea, coffee, milk and sugar, although please note we will not be providing disposable cups this year to reduce our environmental impact at the festival. You can purchase a reusable insulated keep cup from the Hotbox office in the staff campsite or you're welcome to bring your own to the festival.

Also, if you tend to drink a lot of tea and coffee, please bring some extra supplies as ours won't last forever!

Proof of Right to Work in the UK
