Q. Can we park next to our camp site to unload our tents and camping gear?

Q. Can we camp if we only have a day ticket?

A. There is a one-off parking charge of £10 per vehicle payable on arrival.  This is cash only.

Q. What time does the main arena open?

The main arena is open from 9am for access to food stalls.  The bar will be open from midday every day.

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 onto the camp site?

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 our catering vendors arrive on site at different times over the course of festival week.  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 variety and for giving value for money on all food sold.

Q. Can I bring my own alcoholic drinks into the festival arena?

You are welcome to bring alcoholic drinks onto the camp site, however these are not permitted in the main festival arena due to the terms and conditions of our licence.  Security will perform bag checks upon your entry to the arena.

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.  We would prefer you refrain from using glass in the campsite too - the festival site is a working agricultural farm throughout the year and broken glass can cause injury to livestock.

Q. Are dogs allowed?

Yes! We just ask that they are kept under control and on a lead at all times, and that you clean up after them.

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.  You must not destroy the hedgerows or trees to fuel your fire - wood and kindling is available on site at reasonable prices.

Q. Are hot showers available?

Yes - hot showers are located in the main campsite above the site shop.

Q. Are generators allowed in the campsite?

No, we do not allow generators in the campsite, if you have medical equipment that needs to be charged we can do this for you in the ticket office.
