Festival Tents
 
Festival Tent Direct from BCT Outdoors Bradford
The BCT Festival Tent is an extremely hard wearing ridge tent with many features designed to withstand heavy use and the rigors of the wet British summer weather.

Based on a classic ‘A’ frame with no center poles, the festival tent offers a spacious sleeping area for 2 adults with a front porch area to dry off cloths and store luggage etc…

A key design feature of the BCT Festival Tent is the internal guy support strap system which eliminates the need for external guy lines with nothing to trip over.

The BCT festival tent was first officially commissioned and produced for the Glastonbury Music Festival by BCT Outdoors.

BCT Outdoors Glastonbury festival tent can be purchased direct from the factory.

Bell Tent
Bell Tent Direct from BCT Outdoors Bradford

What can be more relaxing and rejuvenating than camping in a canvas Bell Tent, in the peace of the English countryside, the smell of wood smoke and maybe the odd glass of wine.

If this doesn’t re-kindle your love of camping nothing will.

British Bell Tents at their very best. Made in England, in house, in Bradford Yorkshire by Britain’s number 1 tent maker.

Bell Tents have made a remarkable resurgence in the last year or two. What can be better than proper cotton canvas and a tent made in England. "Ask for a fabric sample – you won’t be disappointed"

Whether you are on a family holiday, visiting a pop festival or just chilling out in the country a BCT Bell Tent is ideal.

Bell Tents can be purchased direct from the factory at BCT Outdoors Bradford premises.

BCT Outdoors Ltd: Bell Tent Features and Specification
 
The Bell Tent is still manufactured in the traditional way with double sewn seams, ventilation in the roof with outside rain cowls, ventilation windows in the walls with outside storm/privacy covers and all points of strain heavily reinforced. This tent is also available with a wood centre pole at an additional cost!

The doorway is 1.7 mtrs high so no need to crawl into the tent. The doorway has a steel sectional frame surrounding it that doesn’t intrude into the doorway opening area. This frame is held in place by a tape and ring.

BCT Bell Tents now have the option of a zipped in groundsheet. Not only does our zipped in groundsheet offer both bug and weather protection it has a sleeve which allows the pole to sit on the ground and not on the groundsheet. It has a Velcro strip to the centre so that the groundsheet can be turned back at the entrance – avoids the muddy boots during the day – or it can be removed totally without the need to take out the centre pole to allow the ground to breath.

All pegging and anchor points have strong webbing reinforcement and nylon rings to secure guy ropes.

As usual the tent comes complete with hand cleft hardwood pegs, good strong guy ropes, hardwood runners and a hardwood mallet. All packed in a strong breathable valice. Separate pole bag and peg bag.

Bell Tent is now available in 2 sizes 4 meter diameter and 5 meter diameter. Both Bell Tents are made to our usual exacting standards and both are available with separate or sewn in groundsheet.

All our Bell Tents are Fire retardant to BS7837(1996) – some people even put a wood burning stove in them, take a look on our ‘Glamping’ website - all tents are water and rot proofed as usual.

4 mtr diameter Bell Tents are 323 gsm fabric whereas 5 mtr diameter Bell Tents are 393 gsm fabric. Both Fire retardant to BS7837(1996). Even our groundsheets are Fire retardant!

Bell Tent Tradition
The traditional Bell Tent is possibly the original Scout and Guide tent design used in many of the early Jamborees and by the Army in the 19th Century. The Bell tent is still popular with Boys Brigades throughout the U.K. BCT Outdoors manufacture their own Bell Tents from our factory in Bradford to ensure a solid, high quality build with every component “heavy duty” creating a Bell Tent designed for durability and long life.

The Bell Tent Tradition must be the original of all tents. This particular bell tent is made exactly the same as it was hundreds of years ago. BCT made the replica camp on Brownsea Island from original photographs taken at the time of Lord Baden Powells 1st camp.

BCT Outdoors Bell Tent Tradition can be purchased direct from the factory.
