This high quality 4m Londonderry Bell Tent has been designed in Australia by The Seek Society and is made from waterproof army grade canvas which is fire retardant, UV and mould resistant. With the right care, it will last a lifetime, and it's a great environmentally friendly alternative to plastic tents for car campers, festival goers, and adventurers alike.
It's designed to be durable, functional, and easy to pitch, and is great for families and groups. It has room to sleep up to four adults comfortably on two queen or double mattresses, with additional space for your kit and luggage.
The best? It's good in so many ways ~ it's the ultimate in earth-loving luxury for all your festivals, road trips, camp outs, events and parties. Built to last and not for landfill by the legends at The Seek Society.
The Seek Society's Londonderry Bell Tent is easy to set up and pack down with only two poles, one pole for the centre and the other for the doorway. It involves 3-steps: peg in the ground sheet tightly, place the poles up, and then peg in and tighten the guy lines. It should end up taking you less than 10 minutes with two people, however if you’re travelling solo or on your own to pitch it, it can easily be put up by one person.
Before first use you'll need to season your Londonderry Bell Tent. You need to do this because when canvas tents are sewn, the needle on the seam lines leaves a sightly larger hole than the thread itself. When you season them (saturate with water), the cotton then swells and closes completely, and your tent will then be watertight. To do this, pitch your tent on flat ground near a hose, then hose your tent till it's saturated all over, and particularly in the seams. Then let it dry and repeat this process another 2 times and you will have a seasoned Bell Tent. Let it dry completely before packing away, and never leave it or pack it wet to maintain its longevity. The first time your tent gets wet it may leak a little, but don’t worry, this is normal, particularly if you're seasoning your tent. This will reduce as it dries out, and won't happen again once you've finished seasoning it.

See Set-up on how to season your Bell Tent before first use. The best way to look after your tent is to always store it dry, and it will likely last you a lifetime. The canvas has been treated to protect it from dirt, ultraviolet radiation and fungus which makes it mould resistant but not mould proof, so keep it stored in a cool, dry place and it'll be fine.
The Londonderry Bell Tent should last you a very long time and includes 12-month manufacturers warranty, which excludes mould damage from improper storage.
If over time your Bell Tent happens to get any rips or tears or needs repairing in any way, these will likely to be able to be repaired by an appropriate machinist or your local Saddlery that does horse rug repairs.
If in many years time it’s finally done and can no longer be repaired, you may be able to upcycle or recycle components (such as the poles and pegs), or if it’s beyond use, send it back to us for careful reuse and disposal, and 10% off your next purchase: Life Wild Reuse Program, The Kollective Mullum, 2/116 Stuart St, Mullumbimby, NSW 2482.
