Camp at My Event will set up a pre-erected campsite for a large event, either by adapting the land at the venue or sourcing nearby areas that are suitable.

CampingNinja is a booking website for campsites, and was one of several providers operating temporary camping in and around London last summer for the Olympics. It set up 12 sites and says that sports clubs it used saw a seasonal increase in revenue for the period.

The Camp at My Event service will operate using the same model, with the sites completely managed by CampingNinja.

Geoff Vaughan, co-founder of CampingNinja, said: "We are passionate about camping and want to ensure that it is accessible for all at large-scale multi-day events where camping is either not yet an option or campers are restricted by the camping currently on offer. We aim to deliver real camping without the fuss."
