VIDEO: Doncaster nudist festival kicks-off today
A long awaited week-long nudist festival will bare all in Doncaster today.
The sleepy Doncaster village of Wroot will be inundated with crowds of people in the NUDE for a naturist festival which gets underway today.
Nudists from across the country will be stripping off to enjoy barbecues in the buff, naked darts and nude yoga at the week-long event.
Long-time naturist Angie Cox, 34, will be among those getting her kit off at the Nudestock Festival which is held at her parents’ Candy Farm dairy farm.
Angie, who has enjoyed being in the buff from a young age, says she is the one who encouraged the rest of the family to get back to nature.
She said: “Mum saw how much fun I had, and as time went by, she decided to give it a try herself.
“When I was almost three, we went on a day trip to the seaside. It was a scorching hot day and when we came across a nudist beach.
“Before long, we were a naked family of four, tucking into our picnic without a care in the world. And from that day on, we became fully-fledged naturists.”
Colin, 63, and Carol, 59, hit on the idea of opening their own campsite for like-minded men, women and children in 2005.
He said: “We couldn’t leave the farm because of the cows needing milking, so we invited some naturists friends over to spend the weekend with us. That was when we thought we could open up our own site.”
Since then, the couple have received visitors from across the country, working in conjunction with national organisation British Naturism, which manages the site and festival, which ﬁrst started six years ago.
Colin said: “It is always a good week and we can’t wait for this year’s event. We have great fun and everyone has a really relaxing time together.”
The couple and their children - son Tom and daughter Angie - will stage the festival at their Candy Farm home from May 22-29.
This years festival will feature It’s A Knockout style games, nude Scottish country dancing, an Abba tribute and even Britain’s Got Talent star, electric violinist Alexandra Parker.
Guests will be able to chill out in a hot tub, take part in nude exercise and walks as well as a host of other family activities.
