The camp site opens from midday on Monday 5 August 2019. Yes - you really can camp all week at no extra cost!

Q. How big is the festival?

We are a small festival that has a warm friendly relaxed feel. We are licensed for an attendance of 2,000 people on site which is a major factor in the incredibly safe and welcoming atmosphere. Farmer Phil is quite insistent that this festival will not get any bigger!

Q. Can I bring my own food and drink?

Yes.  We do have a large variety of food vendors booked for the festival but if you’re camping for the week then you may wish to consider catering for yourselves as we cannot at this point in time guarantee when traders will be on site.  The on site bar is run by the festival and has a good variety of beverages to enjoy, including locally brewed real ales!  All the food vendors on site have been chosen for giving value for money on all food sold.

Q. Can I take glasses of drink into the festival arena?

No.  For your safety and that of your fellow festival goers we do not allow glasses in the festival arena.

Q. Are dogs allowed?

Yes! We just ask that they are kept under control and on a lead at all times.

Q. Are camp fires and barbecues allowed?

Yes! We ask that fires are raise off the ground and that you remain aware of fire safety.

Q. Are electrical hook-ups available?

Sorry, but we do not provide electrical hook-ups.
