Where

Our venue for GO East 2023 is Orwell Park School in Ipswich – address below:

Orwell Park Prep School, Nacton, Ipswich, IP10 0ER

Orwell Park School is a brilliant venue with lots of space for the young people to enjoy. There are several common room spaces for us to enjoy to meet friends, play games and hang out. Leaders will always be nearby to chat and facilitate the fun and games.

We will do our best to meet your sharing requests, but this is not always possible.  All bedding is provided but please bring a towel.

Terms and conditions

Each year we hope to take some general photos or video during the week that may be used for publicity, uploaded on our website or shared on social media sites.  We hope to upload any photos on the public ‘Contagious’ Facebook group, so we encourage everyone to join our group. It is almost impossible to control the use of social media by young people at Contagious.

If you have particular concerns about social media, photographs or publicity, please inform the Contagious Team by emailing admin@contagious.org.uk.

I’m sure we will have no issues, but we would like to remind you of the Booking Terms & Conditions that you agreed to when booking online; this will ensure that you are aware of what behaviour is expected during the week.
