Genteel Worcester village up in arms as 700 swingers flock to a field for sex ...

A 'secret' swingers' festival that attracts up to 700 revellers and features 'hot wives', 'bulls', 'unicorns' and jelly wrestling has raised eyebrows in a sleepy village in an area of outstanding natural .

Swingfields, which describes itself as the UK's only swingers' festival, has set up 'covertly' on farmland near the hamlet of Upper Welland, two miles from the famous spa town of Malvern in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside.

Festival-goers have paid up to £415 for a three-day pass, which includes a luxury bell tent with two beds, heating and solar powered lighting.

More than 70 cars and camper vans beat a path to the event in the first few hours of opening yesterday. At one point they were queuing to get in as swingers from across the land made their way to the west country.

In the welcome tent, revellers were issued with a colour-coded wrist band, indicating to other guests what they are up for. And guidance on the Swingfields website helpfully indicates what may be on offer for the party-goers.

'Hot wives' are wives who enjoy casual sex with other men, while 'bare back' refers to having sex without a condom, which is 'generally frowned on', according to Swingfields.

'Bulls' are well-endowed men – married or single - looking for sex, while 'unicorns' are so-called because they are single women and so rare in the swinging scene that few people have ever seen one.

'It's not quite Malvern, is it?' said Marjorie Stapleton, 87, who lives less than a mile from the festival site.

'Are we entirely comfortable with our burgeoning reputation as host to these commercialised, lewd and sleazy events in our green and pleasant countryside?'

This is the second year that Swingfields has chosen Malvern, which is famous for its stunning landscape, as the birthplace of England's greatest composer, Edward Elgar, as well as the home of CS Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia.

Today, luxury homes peak out from the wooded slopes of the Malvern Hills and only five miles away in the village of Ledbury is the sprawling £6 million mansion that actress Elizabeth Hurley, 54, bought with former lover and ex-Australian cricketer, Shane Warne, 49.

Now locals are concerned the well-heeled area may gain a quite different reputation.

By mid-afternoon, rainbow flags, one depicting a giant sperm and another declaring, 'The Playground', were fluttering against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills.

Revellers at the festival are allowed to 'go natural', but they are encouraged to remain covered from the waist down in the festival's main arena 'out of respect for catering staff'

'It is slightly embarrassing and in just one year we have begun to get a reputation,' added Mrs Stapleton, who first heard about swinging last year when she was watching a Louis Theroux documentary.

'It's unappealing,' concluded Mrs Stapleton. 'They are not young people. They are middle aged with big tummies. It is slightly dreadful. And there is something a bit frightening about it. It is the covert way they go about it. I don't like the
