The Bristol SWhooper Hosting Scheme

There’s many amazing hoopers in Bristol coming to SWhoop and some of these hoopers may offer to host out of town SWhoopers.

Hooping Mad will not be coordinating the pairings.

Please hunt for a Bristol Hooper willing to host you by posting on the following fb groups:

SWhoop group
Bristol Hoopers
Bristol Hoop Jam
UK hoopers

We would ask visiting hoopers to discuss an arrangement with your host which may be bringing them wine, cake, cheese or to honour the £20 a placement payment to the host.

If you are offering to host:
Please state name and email, number of spaces/what’s available eg beds/sofas/floor space, how you’ll be getting to the venue, if you are a smoking/non-smoking house, if you have any pets.

If you are looking for a place to stay:
Please state name and email, what you’d be happy with, smoker/non-smoker, pet allergies and which nights you’ll need to stay in Bristol.

Local Hotels

Prices stated are from a search carried out 10th July 2017 assuming 2 people sharing 1 room for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (5-9th October 2017).

We recommend you stay overnight on the Sunday as you’ll be exhausted.   Prices may vary. I’ve put them in order of proximity….
