BBC The Magicians

The National Diving & Activity Centre to feature on BBC’s The Magicians.

We recently closed the site for a day to allow the team from the BBC’s the Magicians show to carry out some filming for their upcoming TV series.

The Magicians returns to BBC One with a show-stopping new live format and viewer vote. Presented by Darren McMullen, the shows feature magicians Barry and Stuart, World Champion of Magic Latimer and comedy magician Pete Firman paired with stars from your favourite TV Shows.

With more daring, dangerous and mind-blowing magic than ever before, each act will perform four tricks – and two will be live, so anything could happen. Once all three acts have performed, viewers get to vote for their favourite, with the losing team having to face a terrifying live forfeit. Who will it be?

We’re pleased to announce that the National Diving & Activity Centre will feature on the Second episode of the series on Saturday 14th January 2012 at 6:30pm.

We can’t give anything away, but it would be well worth watching!

Wigwams now available at NDAC

New Wooden Wigwams arrive in ChepstowPhase two development works for the Wooden Wigwam Accommodation at NDAC Chepstow have just been completed on time, on budget and before Christmas – Now thats a first!

Over November and December we have been working hard on the site infrastructure and shipping in some more Wooden Wigwams for you to go glamping in!

The final wigwam unit arrived on site on Tuesday, just in time for the Christmas rush with the 2011 Scuba Santas event and NDAC Night Dive over the weekend of the 17th & 18th December 2011. This now brings our Wigwam village up to an impressive19 units.

We were not expecting the Wooden Wigwams to be such a runaway success, but they have proved to be very popular with divers and visitors to Chepstow. We started with six Wigwams back in February, this then grew to 10 units, then to 14 units and now 19 units in ten months!  Each of the Wooden Wigwams are hand made in Scotland then send via road down to NDAC some 600miles away! 

The Wooden Wigwams offer the ideal 4 season camping holiday or short break, for group’s families and couples. A great low cost alternative to youth hostels, B&Bs, self catering or camping. Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; secure and lockable the wigwams offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

If you are visiting us for Scuba Santas and the Winter Night Dive, why not make a full weekend of it and go glamping in style. The wigwams aregetting booked up quickly with this busy weekend, so book your wigwam accommodation now to avoid disappointment.

And there’s more!

We are pleased that so many of you have decided to support NDAC in such a big way and wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you.  The investment has also included another toilet and shower block in the Wigwam Village and a water treatment plant which will be operational before Christmas.

The total budget for the Wooden Wigwam accommodation we have in Chepstow is around £300k but we feel has been well worth it and from listening to what our customers have told us, you feel the same way.

Hope to see you soon . . .

You’re only a click of the mouse away from toasting marshmallows round your own camp fire and sleeping under the stars in the heart of the countryside. Book a Wigwam now>
