There is one general campsite with plenty of space for groups to camp together & kids to run around. We aim to site all families together at one end, leaving the other end for friends, groups & couples. (Please be considerate to your fellow campers in regards to space used & noise levels, especially at night).
If you are arriving by car, you must leave it in the car park. The car park is only a few minutes walk to the campsite. Cars will not be allowed into the campsite, so come prepared with a trolley or helpers or both if you have a lot of gear! On arrival at the Ticket Office, you will be directed to the campsite.
We would prefer that food is not brought into the festival as we would like to support the fantastic local traders that will be there, however we understand that feeding little ones can be tricky sometimes. So if you do, please ensure that no glass is brought in & if you're cooking, you must use the designated 'Cooking Area' in the campsite for the safety of little & big people running around.
NO alcohol or glass of any kind is to be brought into the festival or campsites (baby food must be decanted into plastic)
Random searches will be carried out on arrival to ensure everyones safety & security.
Drinking / washing up water will be available free of charge from a dedicated tap next to the shower block in the general campsite. Please bring your own drinking bottles & washing up bucket.

Toilets & Showers
There are toilets situated in the campsite, as well as around the site. The location of these will be marked on the festival map in the program. If you notice that they have run out of loo paper or are getting a bit grubby, please let a member of the festival team know.
There will also be hot showers available! The location of these will also be marked on the festival map. We expect them to get busy, especially in the mornings. So if you hate queuing, we suggest a sneaky mid-morning or afternoon wash. Either that or just stay dirty for a few days… we won’t tell!
Cooking & Fires
Cooking is only permitted from the designated 'Cooking Area' in the general campsite or on raised up gas cookers in the glamping area.
Unfortunately open camp fires are not permitted anywhere, in either the campsite or glampsite. The same goes for candles & paper or Chinese lanterns, so please leave these at home.
However we know that camping wouldn’t be camping without a campfire, so we will be running a large communal campfire on the main festival site, where you can warm up, toast marshmallows, listen to the live music or sing a few of your own if the mood takes you…
The glamping village will be set apart from the general campsite, in a lovely spot overlooking the festival site.
It’s a 5-minute walk from the car park & on arrival at the Ticket Office, someone will escort you to your tent.
The ‘glampsite’ will be open from 4pm on Friday 7th June, with last entry at 10pm. If you are arriving on Saturday 8th, access will be from 10am.
And to make your glamping experience that little bit more comfortable, you will have your own posh loos & hot shower facilities… that should make for happy campers!
