The map (essential)

In a repeat of previous years, accommodation areas were colour-coded to help guests locate their tent and caravan pitches.

'Tell me why you believe'

Ed Atkinson, an agnostic from Henley-on-Thames, walks around the Royal Bath & West Showground asking Christians to tell him about their faith. He is among a number of non-Christians who attend New Wine in support of a Christian spouse or partner each year.

Seminars

Temporary marquees were the setting for many of the seminars and other activities which were held every afternoon - except during one rest day each week.

The main thoroughfare

Most of the venues, the market place, the food court and other attractions were located close to a central road which connected accommodation areas in the north and south of the site with the middle.
