GUIDE FOR NEW GUESTS AT AURORA

“The Lifestyle” as it is often referred to as, has been a growing interest since the war years,

and in recent years has expanded to become a “lifestyle choice” for many hundreds of

thousands across the globe. This surge in numbers is meaning the quantity and quality

of “lifestyle venues & events” is increasing.

Formerly the lifestyle was thought of as mostly for the over 40’s, but in the last couple of

years a trend is emerging to include many more people of younger ages. This guide is

designed to simply give you a better chance of making the festival a brilliant time for you,

as well as all other guests.

Swingfields was launched in 2013 and sold out, it has now sold out every year since

despite us increasing ticket numbers every year. In 2015 the festival featured in

worldwide press and on British TV, leading to a huge increase in enquirers. We felt it

was therefore wise to provide this guide to ensure new guests understand what the

festival is all about, and how to fully enjoy the event.

CAN SINGLE MEN BOOK TICKETS?

We welcome single guys; up to 10% of the total number at the festival. You must

however have a well verified profile on one of the main lifestyle websites. BEFORE

booking, please email us and advise us of your profile name.

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

Often dictated by the weather basic common sense applies, this is YOUR chance to

impress, so if you look like a scruff then you may find yourself sat around the fire alone.

Ladies often dress in lingerie for early evenings, or if its sunny we often see people

going “natural” but we do however ask that you remain clothed from the waist down in

the main arena out of respect for catering staff etc.

WHAT "ACTION" WILL I GET?

Make no assumptions!! This is NOT a ‘meat market’, so if you spend time being fun,

social and make the effort to mingle you will have a lovely event. You must make the

effort yourself. If you sit and wait then little will happen. This Festival is really no different

from any other festival as the focus is on socialising, music, entertainment and you

feeling safe and secure.

DO YOU HAVE ANY "HINTS" IF WE ARE NEW TO THE LIFESTYLE SCENE?

Relax – this is really just a social experience, think of it as going to a nice pub, party or

any other festival. Don’t get drunk as alcohol may ruin your party as well as others! Be

clean, smell nice, look good, feel good; this is YOUR event so YOU need to enjoy it. If

you smoke then mints are a wise addition to carry. The festival has a safe sex policy and

protection is available to purchase but we recommend you bring your own.

IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF SINGLE GUYS?

Yes, we limit single gents to 10% of the total number of guests. Although it’s good to

then meet up with others at the bar etc. we strongly discourage “pack hunting” (prowling

around in groups) and also “gawking” (standing around play zones)

What is the ratio of couples etc.?

80% of guests are couples and approx. 10% single ladies and 10% single gentlemen.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

Just be you – “no means no”, but just be social and you will soon get a feel for how you

are getting on with people, and either just ask politely or they may ask you, but the

ladies are very much the ones who decide. Respect this throughout the evening, try and

learn about them and their interests and you may be surprised!

We run a WELCOME EVENING meeting in the main marquee on Thursday and Friday evening, so come along and the Festival  team will answer questions, tell you what’s happening over the

weekend and generally be there to help you.

I'M SURE ABOUT LOTS OF THINGS ... ?

Your Festival team are there to help you, do not be afraid to ask, this is the quickest way

to find things out and trust us, we have been asked just about everything!!! Please do

not send texts and emails before you attend as the focus is on the actual event and

looking after their guests on the night. Experience also shows that the more emails sent

by people BEFORE a festival, generally means they won’t book!!!

I'M TOTALLY NEW TO THE LIFESTYLE SCENE, IS THAT OK?

We DO require you have a profile with verification's from a Lifestyle social media site BEFORE Booking as we need to ensure that guests have EXPERIENCE before attending so no offence is caused to anybody.

CAN I PAY ON THE GATE?

NO….. Online payments are a FESTIVAL RULE –It helps to protect customers privacy and security

Giving peace  of mind for all our guests.

We hope these few hints will help, remember, if in doubt just ask. We have a number of

customers who come along every year because they “stick to plan” and realise that the

more others feel socially comfortable, the more likely the chemistry will take over.

They go home having made many lifelong friendships.

We welcome you to the LIFESTYLE, and to Aurora, and hope you have many

great events with us.
