What can I bring into the event?

Within reason, you can bring what you think you need to make your day comfortable APART FROM ALCOHOL. We do advise you to travel as light as you can and we reserve the right to carry out checks on all backpacks & holdalls for obvious security purposes. You do not have to bring foldable chairs as we have a huge amount of seating both inside the marquee and outside in the large beer garden. The festival is wheelchair friendly.

We do allow dogs at the festival but they must be kept on a lead at all times. We would advise you NOT to bring your own beer glass as our licensing rules don't allow us to fill them. You can get a refundable festival polycarbonate glass on entry.
