The Playgrounds have just returned from 4 days at Swingfields 2016, simply the best festival to date. Yes there was a few minor niggles that can be ironed out for future events, but that said we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Stu, Debs and all the Swingfields staff for a truly brilliant festival.

We are well aware of the gutter press articles that have simply gone to a new all time low and we feel for the people that have been outed by those fantasy stories. We hope that the future of Swingfields will continue for many years to come.

This festival is admired all over Europe, and for good reason, because it is simply the best there is and we as a community should all support Swingfields and what it stands for, because with out it the world of swinging in the UK would be a lot less.

The issues caused by the weather didn't stop it being a great weekend for most

The entertainment was excellent and 100% better than last year

The main problems are well documented;

I'm an early riser so always got a hot shower in the morning

Lack of water in the toilets though was unacceptable, music festival porta a loos at least have hand wash antibac in them!

I appreciate the arena wasn't planned to be so spread out, but the very long grass didn't help when having to trek.

Having the field mowed a week before would have made conditions much better both in the arena and in the camping areas

My main concern is The pictures coming out online both in the daily mail and now the sun

I know I'll not be the only one worried that I'm on a picture some where that could compromise my employment!

Any retrospective legal action over the photos won't take away the damage that they have already caused for some

Better security measures after last year and the press were not in evidence.

No Id was checked, I know some that didn't even get their wristbands due to the chaos on arrival

lockers could be provided like the ones used at big music festivals and phones restricted to that area,

Staggered arrival times so that full security checks can be carried out (none were) basing the arrival times given On when tickets where purchased perhaps?

Bags being checked before going into the arena weren't carried out, at all this year were last year they did a few times at least

If the sun article is to be believed, then better checks need to be in place on accepting ticket bookings

We stood watching the jelly wrestling and a security guy was stood on his quad bike watching, what irony now that if he'd watched the crowd a little more he may have spotted who was taking the pics!!

Coming away Sunday was sure we'd be back next year

Now though, got to seriously rethink as the risk of exposure is looking too high and after the promises made last year, the only change in security measures I saw was that they didn't dismiss security early Sunday

Year 4 for us so knew pretty much what to expect. Weather tried its best to ruin it but failed. Agree with other comments posted about heaters, toilets, too spread out but at the end of the day we still met great people and had plenty of fun. Highlight of the weekend Davina Sparkle! Well done guys despite the weather you pulled it off again. Now have to think what suit to get next year to top this years!!

This was our second time at Swingfields, we were at the very first one.

Entertainment was fabulous great bands & Djs. Especially enjoyed watching the jelly wrestling.

Everyone we met were lovely friendly people.

Weather was what it was....

Agree with other comments, Play tents to far away from main area, more showers needed & working,toilet blocks taken away really early Sunday morning, Security driving around dangerously fast Thursday on quad bikes churning up the mud.

Amazing event we will definitely be coming back.

Thank you to all the events team for giving us a great event

Attended this festival for the whole event and despite being nervous about what to expect, I am still on such a high.

Cracking weekend with an amazing bunch of people! For people considering going in 2017.... Do it! It's like camping on a camp site of normal people but there is so much friendliness and love it's better than a normal camp site!

As a festival Virgin, I really enjoyed my time there. The main tent and aurora bar were amazing and I loved the tunes in the aurora bar so much!

I won't mention what's already been mentioned about the showers and toilets because I understand British weather is crap!

I am already planning next year!!

If you're reading this and thinking to take the plunge, I say do it! Like anything, it's what we make of it. Rain or shine!

Oh and please can you get more hot security for next year ;) one hottie wasn't enough!

Thank you so much for a weekend that I will not be forgetting anytime soon xx

I booked a two day ticket, unfortunatley having other plans for the Saturday night. The weather seemed to be doing its best to annoy everyone, but such is life in the UK, mustn't grumble and all that!

I have to say that I had an absoluteley awesome time, everyone was very friendly indeed, I met and chatted to lots of new faces and the craic was brilliant!

As others have said, the play tents need heaters - it was bloody brass monkeys in there, so I was forced to find people to share sleeping bags with. It's a hard life, eh?

I'm definitley up for Swingfields 2017, bring it ON!

Just back from swingfields 2016

Now time to recover .....

Arrived Friday and the scenery was breathtaking

Entertainment Friday night was brilliant

the play tents were too far apart from the entertainment

Saturday's foam party was a blast loved it ...

Good variety of tents not great variety of food outlets ... But we took a BBQ n cooked ourselves

The best play tent available was the Eurekas tent

Warm , clean and the most playing going on .....

Shower and toilet facilities were poor and need looking at In depth for next year ...

Will be booking our early bird tickets for next year and hope to see improvements ....

Thank you swingfields organisers .... See you next year

Just arrived home, absolutely exhausted and reliving the weekend all the way home! lol

We all had our gripes, but we made the best of the festival and didn't let any of it spoil our fun!! ;-)

The good bits...

The entertainment was top drawer! The bands, especially on the Saturday were brilliant and the tent was bouncing!

The planned programme of activities was fun and varied.

The Big Red Bus was brilliant as always, although I think their sales will be down due to being so far away from the arena; they couldn't get any closer because of the mud.

The staff roaming around and the entertainment team were great and really helped things go smoothly. Special mention to the lady who manned the info tent.

Santonesse worked like troopers and offered a lovely range of tempting goodies. Nice to catch up with you in the evening ;-) Big hugs x

The gang of swingers this year were brilliant and we met so many lovely people. I have to say that the punters totally made this festival as we ALL had to improvise because of the weather and the plan of the camp sites which had to be changed.

The fact that I could wear my wellies with my sexy, revealing underwear...so wrong yet soooo right!!! haha

The not so good bits...

The play tents were too far away and cold. I asked about heaters before the event and we were told heaters would be provided, so I am disappointed with that. Also the Townhouse play tent was literally a tent and 5 mattresses. I was disappointed to find that we had only been given 5 mattresses on the floor, the grass was really long, plastic had been put down in the middle rather than flooring and again..no heaters. Yes it was a play tent and not a promotional or sales tent, but it was hard for us to make it sexy with what we had. So we had to make the best of it and decorate it as best as we could in a festival vibe and changed the sheets as often as poss. The tent was used LOADS though as we went through tons of sheets PMSL!! So my personal gripes didn't seem to affect play too much! ;-)

Some people stole stuff from our couples play tent. Throws, lights, features and other things that added to the vibe went missing and never returned

The campervan/caravan site had no toilets, showers or standpipe but I think this could be because we were not on the planned field. Our nearest toilets went off on Saturday afternoon and never reopened. The showers..only 4 out of 8 were working and then people kept using the standpipe to fill up their water as there were so few other options. This meant that our showers went off all the time. But we just muddled along, shared showers *-) *-) and had a laugh about it!! It's just one of those things and this wasn't a deal breaker.

There are some other things but I will address these directly rather than in public.

All in all, we loved Swingfields this year as the people made it and the evenings were rocking!! The location was gorgeous and when the sun eventually came out this morning, we could truly appreciate the stunning scenery. We can't help compare it to previous years, but if this was the first year for some, then I'm sure they would have loved it.

I can only imagine the blood sweat and tears that goes into organising these events and the team had to pull off the impossible under terrible weather conditions, so I doff my hat.

Well done to all involved and I am now going to hang up my dancing shoes for a little while as I think I danced like it was my last weekend on this planet!!

I have just got home from a truly memorable and unique weekend at swingfields. It was the most easy going adult lifestyle environment I have ever been in, everyone was friendly even though I made an effort to make a complete idiot of myself all weekend by dressing up in various silly outfits (captain,toga,70's porn star,neon and Sunday morning vicar) all greeted with nothing but open arms,cheers and smiles from everyone.

I got an monumental cheer from the crowd winning me wet y front competition runner up that really made my weekend (apparently I was robbed so everyone kept telling me)

The jelly wrestling was hilarious to watch and the bands, dj's and foam party where excellent.

Yeah it was raining at times and there was a few issues with the toilets, showers at times but I refused to let it effect my weekend!

I will be going again.

Our first time at swingfields and we are so glad we did.. Great British weather done its upmost to spoil it but it didn't succeed.. The entertainment was fantastic food was lovely and very good prices the same with the bars.

Already planning our return with our friends.

We left there feeling gutted it was over, but completely chilled and with big smiles on our faces.

Well done to everyone that was involved you all done an amazing job, so from us a big big thank you xxx

Following a number of recommendations we came to Swingfields for the first time and found a fantastic social and networking event for all forms of lifestyle, but unfortunately the British weather did it's best to dampen the play. Would have liked to see some heating in the play tents - nothing turns off the mood faster than when taking your kit off leaves you shivering. Finally get to tick foam party off our bucket list and had lots of sexy fun in the bubbles. Entertainment was top line throughout from Divina Sparkles wit to the bands (including improvised drum kit) and the fantastic DJs. The two event tents worked well to cater to a diverse range of swingers keeping everyone up and happy.

Only a few improvement opportunities - warmer play tents, better availability of the hot tubs with some form of shelving to put your clothes in to keep them out of the rain and off the ground and making the bi wristbands and the hot tub wristbands the same colour led to some unnecessary but interesting conversations.

You can't control the weather but this was a great way to meet and mingle and all those involved have done a fantastic job making this event come together. If you like festivals and you like swinging then you will obviously love this, highly recommend this event, if not the most play you could fit in it is the friendliest weekend you could have.

Our first time at swingfields, From arrival we was told we cold not drop off our stuff at the glamping tent and had to trek across thick mud back and forth carrying our stuff while watching the staff happily play on there large quad bikes. Booked a glamping tent and it was more like a cramping tent, really wasn't worth £300 and definitely won't book one of these again, our so called memory foam mattress must of had Alzheimer's as it looked like two gym mats put together to me, no frame just chucked on the floor, As for the showers what a joke, hands up too the two maintenance guys who all weekend was trying to sort things , felt for them but for a festival of this type SHOWERS IS A MUST! Food options WHAT OPTION? The burger stall guys worked there nuts off to feed us all but least they must of earnt a fortune, well done. Entertainment was really good and was a great bunch of people, was a fun weekend and made some new friends too. All in all we probably will book again as everyone who goes are so friendly but least next year we will know what to expect, play tents miles away with hardly any playing in except EUREKAS tent as it was the only one with heating and music, well done kels and sparks you bloody worked hard and done the club proud....

This was our second year at Swingfields & I have to say despite the other reviews we found last year to be much better.

I know the rain can't be helped but there seemed to be no back up plan for this & panic ensued that saw the tents, motor homes & caravans split up which did affect socialising. There was no provision for showers, toilets or water for the caravans & motorhomes which meant a considerable trudge through the mud to use the other ones.

The play tents were much too far away from the main arena which led to people starting to play in the main tent who were swiftly advised by security to move it to the play tents across the very large expanse of cold, wet & muddy distance or risk being thrown off the site!

The main arena was not the busy, bustling & social area it was last year & although we were advised that there would be lots of new food vendors there was really just one.

The entertainment was brilliant as usual & everyone tied to make the best of it but it was far from the success of last year with cheaper and fewer showers that we & our friends were fixing on a daily basis & staff commenting that problem toilets would have to wait until the morning at 9.30 pm when it was obvious that a lot of people would need them.

Some of the staff were excellent but others really didn't want to know.

We feel very disappointed at the seemingly very poor organisation of this year's event.

Because we had such a great time last year we will go again but if it is a repeat of this year's poor effort on the resources we won't be going after that.

Swingfields 2016 - It's easy to piss and whine so I'll get that out of the way first. The site suffered through low water pressure which affected the showers, this could have been foreseen. It has to be said it was not the best experience being left naked in the middle of a field in Wales covered in soap when the showers abruptly stopped. To be fair it was not helped by 'bucket heads' disconnecting the water delivery system to get water and then leaving it switched off. If that was you - you're a bell-end!

Apart from that gripe it was great fun and we enjoyed it immensely. The acts including dancers, bands, a great drag act and a burlesque show were stunning, absolutely entertaining and the staff could not be more helpful.

What made the event for me was the throng of lifestylers who were going to party on, come what may. OK OK the weather could have been better but not even Stuart, Debs and the team could organise that - it's a British Summer Festival for Pete's sake - it happens, andwe got over it. We'd like to say well done to the SF committee for organising such a great event in a field with so many weather and terrain problems. Special shout out to the Legend that is Mr Black10Inch. he threw himself into all the activities 100% we did laugh :-)

OK the 6 million dollar question - Would we go to Swingfields 2017 ... Fuck Yeah!

One small moan we thought the toilets and showers wasn't as good as last year I guess the more people you have the more toilets you need I don't suppose weather helped with this either

Thanks to all the crew and staff another brilliant swingfields

Well the British weather tried its best to dampen spirits but it was a great weekend. I didn't do as much as I was hoping too, but I managed to see the jelly wrestling, some of the fet tent, a few bands, and the awesome and inimitable Davina Sparkles. I spent most of the weekend chatting, drinking, and laughing, and barely had time to fit in a smidge of bonking too. I just wish it was longer so I can meet more people.

Although it was awesome, and well arranged, there were a few niggles:

- I can't believe after the problems last year people were still complaining bout lack of heaters in the play tents. OK, when it gets full of people the tent will warm up, but which brave person will be the first to get their kit off?

- The Aurora bar was supposed to be waiter service but I didn't see any evidence of it. The fact they charged more for the beer than in the bus surely means we shouldn't have to queue for a beer?

- The toilets were a bit stinky. Someone said it was to do with the chemicals, so maybe some air fresheners?

- No bins that I could see around the campsite, although there were plenty in the arena. Just meant I had to drag my lazy arse 100 metres to throw something away. :)

Overall though it was well run, well organised, and well good fun. I'll be back!!

Our first swingfields, weather was a let down, but that is the uk, lot's of lovely sexy couples attended, warm friendly atmosphere, one minus point the caterers, pricing good but presentation and choice not good, and they ran out of food and shut early so had to go off site for food, heard the organisers had been let down by some caterers, sure it will be addressed by next event.

All in all good.

After just getting back from a music festival where the toilets were disgusting and the showers were out of water after the first day all I could think about was how clean and lovely the toilets and showers were at swingfields and also how great the entertainment was as well as all the other things we got up to which is why we've already brought our loyalty tickets for next year and can't wait and think it's cruel how you make us wait a whole year before the next one you guys should hold 2 or 3 events a year ; ) xx

Our first swingfields festival and can honestly say it's one of our best weekends ever away together the big difference maker being the weather although having no bins around the site was a problem because people were leaving rubbish anywhere the fetish tent was great but would of been nice to have a free rain on the equipment and the glory hole was awesome we had a lot of fun in there. We found there was always a big cue for the bar so maybe an extra bar next time.

The toilets and showers were plenty and well placed but how about a wash station as we noticed people washing their own cutlery by there tent.

the staff and security were friendly and always busy and we loved the fire and at the risk of sounding old how about having the music a bit quieter as we ended up spending alot of time out of the tent just so we can have conversations and socialise as we struggled to hear people in there apart from that keep up the amazing work your all doing and we can't wait for next year.
