Hi there

some key info!

*_Key Info for HacktionCamp 2022_*

*Dates : *9th (evening) to 12th (afternoon) June 2022
*Contact :*  Emergency Phone Contact - Mike on 07811 671 893 & Mick on 
07913 882 193
*Location:*HacktionCamp takes place at Tod College in Todmorden

*Unconference, Workshops and Talks*

As with previous events, the Hacktion Camp programme is a mix of 
preplanned workshops and talks and some which are more last minute 
decisions or collaborations. Workshop proposals are here.

We will be working on Saturday and Sundays schedule as most people 
arrive on Friday late-afternoon early evening.
Friday's schedule is informal / low-key in the Makery workshop.

*Running times and arrival cut-off times*

It is ok to arrive to either the college or the camping first, e.g. you 
want to get set up camping before going to the college.

Thursday: Tod College closed; If camping please arrive at camping site 
by 22:00
Friday  : 09.30 at Tod College until 20:30; then at Campsite
Saturday: 09.00 at Tod College until 18:00
Sunday  : 10.30 at Tod College until 14:30


Please note that the camping is near to Todmorden and to a number of 
neighbours of the campsite owners, Phil and Georgina.  They have asked 
us not to have amplified music and night and keep to accoustic music 
till 12.00 (no drums) and talking around a fire.(A free disco is within 
minutes of the site.)

The camping has some facilities, including toilets, some charging 
points, a shower, and a opensided tent with a table for making drinks / 
food. There will be wood for a fire on one or two nights should the 
weather be clement enough for this.  There are additional shower and 
kitchen facilities at Tod College.

*Location of camping *

The site is 1 Jackman Street (OL14 6NJ) just off Longfield Road near the 
centre of Todmorden. From the main roundabout (if arriving via Burnley 
or Hebden Bridge/Halifax), take the road towards Rochdale (A6033) and 
turn left immediately after the Golden Lion pub up Longfield Road.
After a few hundred yards turn left to stay on Longfield Road. Phil and 
Georgina's house is the one with the big double white garage on the left 
hand bend and the track immediately above the garage forking to the left 
will take you on to site. look for signs up to the camping & car parking 
/ drop-off zone in the land out the back of that property. If  there is 
no space for parking then drop off your things and ask where a good 
place to park is. This is to try not to crowd out the neighbours.

Aldi on the left as you go down Burnley Rd from the central roundabout. 
There is a car park and a main entrance to the college. If the main 
entrance to the college is shut (e.g. After 5 on Friday) you can enter 
the workshop in the side entrance down the alleyway.
