FAQs

As per 2020, this year’s event is ticketed for 2021 to allow us to manage numbers and adhere to track and trace guidelines.

Currently, we are not planning to sell tickets on the gate and would advise advance booking as the festival is very popular. However, as government policy evolves, this situation may change nearer the time. Please stay updated via our website or social media.

As per 2020, we are planning to have all the ‘new normal’ safety measures in place. A managed capacity provides more personal space for social distancing with advance ticketing creates a system for track-and-trace if required. There will be hand sanitiser stations on entrance and at each stand. More seating will be on site and the 30mins between sessions allows our cleaning team to ‘blitz the event site’. There will be reminder signage especially around busy queuing areas such as the bars. As our roadmap to freedom changes, we will continue to monitor guidelines and work with various council departments on the safe running of the Festival.

Yes children under 16 are free

Why would you want to? Please don’t bring your own food and drinks onto the site, instead support our fabulous event traders as it’s been a hard few months for them. If you do decide to bring a packed lunch, it will be confiscated, kept safe (and warm), you can then collect it from the event office for your journey home.

Well behaved four legged guests are very welcome, please keep them on a lead at all times and pick up any toilet stops!

We are uncertain whether this year will see the return of our demo kitchen. This is partly based on current – or likely – government guidelines around sharing kitchen space or handing our ‘tasters’.  However, for something a bit different our Pop Up restaurant will return, so stay tuned for more announcements shortly!

Tickets are non-refundable as with any large scale event, unless there are exceptional circumstances and decisions made on a case-by-case basis. Or, if we have to cancel any session of the festival due to adverse weather.

If you feel unwell please do not attend the event for everyone’s safety, we are happy to transfer your tickets to another name if that is required.
