FAQ

1. Can I bring my camper van / boat / articulated lorry / milk float?

Yes you can! But please note there are no hook-ups for camper vans anywhere on site. Also, there is an arch leading onto the main camping fields. The venue say this arch can accommodate a vehicle that is 3m high x 3.2m wide. If you wish to bring a vehicle that is larger than this, you will need to camp at the front of the venue and not in the main camping fields. We will update this information at the end of March 2020, once we have measured the arch ourselves!

2. Can I bring my dog?

Sorry. No dogs allowed on site at all. The venue are very strict about this so please don’t bring your bitch or pocket the pooch. Fido stays at home.

3. I’m interested in being a vendor. What do I do?

Check out our vendors page with more details. Basically it’s very simple: buy vendor tickets, come along and sell your stuff! We’ll be in touch with anyone who buys a vendors ticket nearer the time to find out what size pitch you require. Please note: we do not supply electricity to vendors and you have to bring your own gazebos etc. Most vendors shut shop when it gets dark and join everyone else for the starlight screening anyway. Vendors are also asked to not camp in the vendors’ area.

4. What facilities are there on site?

There are flushing loos in the school buildings and some chemical loos nearer to the camping fields. We’ll update this info soon hopefully with news of outdoor taps, washing up areas and hot showers.

5. What things should I pack?

Here’s a list of things you might find useful:

  • yoga mat (for yoga in the morning)
  • chair and blanket for the outdoor starlight screenings
  • torch
  • cash (for food, drinks and goodies from the vendor stalls)
  • re-usable mugs and (non-glass) pint glasses for drinks

No need to bring booze: there will be a well-stocked bar on site

6. Can I bring my kids?

Kids are welcome at the festival but it’s worth noting that there are no activities specifically designed with children in mind, so it’s up to you if you think your kids will enjoy it. With our new venue we now have limited numbers of bums on seats, so we can no longer allow children to the festival for free. We are offering a two-tier ticket for children: one ticket that means your child can come in and watch the films and a much cheaper ticket that means your child can come to the festival, camp and enjoy all of the outdoor activities but they can’t come inside and watch a film or speaker. We’re aware that many families come with children and the kids don’t ever watch a film, so we’re offering this cheap ticket as a way to enable families to come together to the festival.

Children that want to eat in the dining hall will also need to have advance meal tickets.

7. What food options are there?

Food will be available on site but only from the canteen or lunch stall that we provide. Due to the rural location, food options are limited! Basically we recommend that you purchase meal tickets in advance for meals in the dining hall. Meals in the dining hall are delicious and filling so well worth it. These meal tickets are available for breakfasts, suppers and now lunch too! We can cater for vegetarians and vegans but ideally we’d like to know about your dietary requirements in advance. When you buy a ticket, please let us know if you need veggie or vegan food. More info is on our food & drink page.

You are welcome to self cater… just make sure you don’t have any BBQs on the grass – lift them off the ground please.
