Q. Can I bring foldup chairs, wind breaks or gazebos?

A. Fold up chairs are allowed but wind shields or gazebos cannot be brought into the festival arena. And don’t forget your flags!

Q. Can I bring alcohol?

A. In line with our police conditions on our licensing application this now includes the supply of alcohol for consumption both on and off the premises. This new condition allows alcohol bought within the license area (arena) to be taken outside the arena but within the parameters of the farm such as the woodland fringe and camping areas.

To be clear we can allow alcohol to be taken out of the arena (licensed area) but security will stop alcohol leaving the site (farm). We will continue to stop alcohol from being brought into the licensed area (arena) from anywhere on the farm such as the woodland fringe and the campsites. If you leave the arena with alcohol, please drink up before you re-enter the arena as it will be taken from you.

There is a Challenge 25 policy operating at the bar so if you’re lucky enough to look under 25 please bring your passport, photo card driving licence or ‘PASS’ ID with you.
