On arrival, all festival attendees will be given a wristband as proof of ticket purchase which will allow leaving and re-entering the site.

All tickets are non-refundable and non-replaceable. We cannot offer refunds on the basis of inclement weather.
There is plenty of space for car parking on site and it’s only a short walk to the festival entrance from the car park.
For safety reasons cars will not be allowed anywhere apart from the main car park.
You might want to consider bringing a wheelbarrow or equivalent to help carry gear from your car to your pitch – it’s not far but tents can be heavy!
Please park in the car park then go to reception to pick up your wrist bands and pitch number. Tent stewards will direct you to your pitch. Blow up mattresses will be provided in pre-erected tents but please bring your own bedding. More information on camping and facilities is available here.

What to Bring
The idea of bringing kids to a festival can seem a little daunting if it’s your first time. We’ve all been there with wet wipe disasters and forgotten flip flops. Here’s our little suggestion for what to bring and what to leave at home, to make your festival experience a success:
Your tent Unless you’re lucky enough to own a camper van or have treated yourselves to a pre-erected family tent, you’ll need something to sleep in and on. Plus sleeping bags, pillows and maybe some extra blankets. It’s worth remembering that it can get surprisingly cold in the middle of the night even at this time of year, so bring something warm to sleep in.
Clothing Ah, the great British summer! It could be sunny, hot, showery or cold at various times over the weekend, given that we live in the UK! Bring waterproofs, wellies, layers and suncream! We also recommend bringing mosquito repellent and mozzie bite cream just in case!
What Not to Bring
Please remember, no pets, no sky lanterns, candles or fireworks, no sound systems and no glass. Also please respect our wish to support local traders and do not bring your own food or drink on site.
