The Accommodation Team work hard to help everyone find a place to stay for major events (usually rebellions in London). Each Region/Nation is twinned with a London Borough and accommodation will be allocated with this in mind.
We aim to provide a safe space for anyone in need, who otherwise would not be able to come to London and where rebels can rest and regenerate after a long day’s protest.
The number of camps and indoor accommodation depends on the number of rebels registering. Managing accomodation needs extensive planning, as it will involve infrastructure, essentials, and preparing to be camping in more than one park. Please see volunteering roles below.
Campsite specific locations are not normally released until just before we open them. This is to avoid unwanted attention from the public. We aim to cooperate with local communites as far as possible - if you live in London and there is a community area possibly suitable for camping near you, please let us know.
Join the London Campers Community Telegram Group for updates and to communicate with other potential campers: join here
Managing the camp(s) will be a daunting task. We need campers to volunteer at least a few hours help - we are all crew! Please join the London Campers Volunteer Chat, where you can connect to other volunteers: join here
Camping in public spaces in London is illegal, however XRUK liaises with local authorities and the Met Police to ensure camps are safe. Locations will only be released once the local authorities have been contacted approximately 7 days before, at which point they are more likely to be supportive.
Contact the Accommodation Team by email if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
We aim to secure as many indoor spaces as possible, such as church halls, mosques, community centres, warehouses and sports halls.

Please note that some rebels are encountering "invalid date" problems when using the date selection in the filter at the top of the page. To avoid this, use the dates field on the page of the host you would like to stay with.

If you sign up to be a host then please check your inbox regularly as we are hearing that some attempts at registering for accomodation are going unanswered.
