  • SoulPad & The Cosmos

    May 16, 2013 00:00

    We were thrilled when Artist Brian Griffiths contacted us with plans for his latest piece; 'These Foolish Travels' - an installation that certainly brings a huge splash of colour to Norwich Castle's Keep as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

    Fh 5.13-25Visitors to the castle will find four tents on display, one being a SoulPad 4000-ease™ painted to look like the cosmos. The remaining three tents are painted to represent the earth, the castle and the human brain. More images here.

    These Foolish Travels runs until Sunday, June 2 at Norwich Castle. Mondays to Saturdays 10am–4.30pm and Sundays 1pm–4.30pm.

  • SoulPad Rated in Mumsnet's Top 5 Family Tents

    May 07, 2013 20:00

    Thanks to all Mumsnetters who rated the SoulPad in their top 5 of family tents. We're dead chuffed, we really are.

    "Simply the best tent ever, can't recommend it highly enough. We can put it up in about 10 minutes and we're no experts. Takes three double mattresses with plenty of room for other stuff. Incredibly stylish and gorgeous!" -says Mumsnetter SR248, and of course we quite agree.

    LogoMumsnet say "Chosen by you:  After a family tent that will stand up to the elements and the test of time (and won't take ages to put up)? Check out our top five, as rated by Mumsnetters."

    Mumsnet was conceived in early 2000 when JustineMumsnet embarked on a disastrous family holiday. Her idea was to create a website where parents could swap advice about not just holidays but all the other stuff parents talk about.

  • SoulPad Sponsors 6 Months in Scotland Wild Camp

    February 15, 2013 19:00

    Armed with a SoulPad 4000-ease, our new best friend Wayne Hall is soon due to set off into the sunset for 6 months of wild camping.

    "With just my dog (Jerry) for company I'll be braving the Scottish elements for 6 straight months starting on Feb 27th 2013 & finishing on the 27th Aug.

    I see this as a great opportunity to raise some funds for the very worthy 1charity 'Shelter' who do immense work nationwide helping families & individuals in times of real need.

    The self-employed Tiler, who lives near the Peak District, decided to embark on the adventure of a lifetime after discovering that his rented cottage was about to be sold.

    He said: “The idea of the trip really reared its head last September after spending a few days wild camping in Galloway Forest Park at Loch Moan.”

    “I heard the news just after returning from Loch Moan that my home was to be sold by the landlords in the spring of 2013 — therefore a long trip became a real possibility.”

  • SoulPad Sponsors 4Men 7Brows, Mongol Rally Team

    December 19, 2012 19:00

    Idiocy on a grand scale! These guys will travel 8,000 miles with their trusted SoulPad kit, to raise money for Sue Ryder Care, Macmillan Cancer Support. Some pillow-talk from the organisers:

    “Your chances of being seriously injured or dying as a result of taking part are high. Individuals who have taken part in previous Adventurists’ adventures have been permanently disfigured, seriously disabled or lost their life.
    This is not a glorified holiday. It’s an unsupported adventure and so by its very nature extremely risky. You really are on your own and you really are putting both your health and life at risk. That’s the whole point.”

    Good luck guys, we're proud sponsors. You have our full support.

  • Dave Wise, Editor at Trek & Run, SoulPad Review

    October 14, 2012 20:00

    We were honoured to have our SoulPad 4000-lite tested by Dave Wise (Editor at Trek & Run) throughout 2012 in varying location across the UK. Trek and Run offers honest advise for active travellers covering event reviews, travel features and product reviews, in the main.

    Dave contacted SoulPad back in December 2011 to tell how Trek & Run had set him a challenge - "to camp out for at least one night a week for the entire year, starting in January" - Woagh! and we thought we were keen! SoulPadders can read Dave's monthly diary here and his full review of the SoulPad 4000-lite™ is here.

  • Fossil Collective have got Soul!

    September 30, 2012 20:00

    Jonny Hooker of Fossil Collective tells us "I've been chilling out in my SoulPad for a few years now and can hand on heart say it's the best festival tent around. Loads of space and looks cool and we've even used it backstage at festivals as a rehearsal space. Brilliant for kids too. Dave and I both have one and we love them..."

  • Carbon Monoxide, BBQ and Fire Safety Advice

    June 07, 2012 20:00

    With the untimely deaths of so many campers being related to Carbon Monoxide poisoning each year, we were keen to team up with UKCampsite.co.uk to help raise awareness of the associated dangers.

    Our friends at UKCampsite.co.uk say;

    "BBQs and Carbon Monoxide - Important Please Read

    Please note, although you may be tempted to put your barbeque in your tent, or tent porch, either during or after use, to keep you warm, DONT! It may kill you, and very quickly.

    Carbon monoxide fumes from BBQs are invisible, odourless, and lethal. Even if you think it's safe, and the flames have died down, don't do it. The smouldering coals may be warm, but they will kill you. Even with the tent doors open. Even just in the porch. Please don't do it! 

    You can download a warning poster here alerting of the dangers of carbon monoxide - why not laminate it and put it in your tent window, or maybe ask the next site you visit to put it up in their reception window. ( poster is a PDF file )

  • Peace Camp - InTents

    March 18, 2012 20:00

    Commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and created by Deborah Warner in collaboration with Fiona Shaw, we're privileged to be supplying SoulPad tents for the Peace Camp - InTents project - "a poignant exploration of the great love poetry of our nations and a celebration of the extraordinary variety and beauty of our coastline."

    The SoulPad tents will be used in an extraordinary way. Student's finished poems will be passed to peers studying Art & Design who will work with textile artists to create artworks from the texts of their poems. These will then be patched and appliquéd onto the inside walls of the tents.

    The finished SoulPads will go on public exhibition and host live poetry events in the areas local to the secondary schools, before travelling to London’s Southbank during October 2012 where all twelve tents will be displayed together as part of National Poetry Day Celebrations.
