Alcohol

You are allowed to bring your own alcohol to the campsite, but only a reasonable amount* per adult (remember the organisers put the festival on for free and in our spare time, this means we can give you good bands at cheap ticket prices, please do your bit by supporting our bars and helping us to raise money in the fight against children's cancer). This is for personal consumption in the campsite ONLY and will not be allowed on our shuttle bus or brought into the main arena, where there are bars available. The bars offer a great selection of real ales, ciders, spirits, lagers, wines and soft drinks at reasonable prices.

*Please note alcohol must be decanted into non-glass containers. There is no glass allowed as broken glass can harm children or the livestock who will use the campsite land after you leave.

Cooking

Food is allowed into the camping area but only baby food can be taken into the festival arena

Please note disposable aluminium BBQs are not allowed. Only small purpose built off-the-ground BBQs and camping stoves can be used to cook food but ONLY in designated cooking areas.

Groups

We’re happy for groups of friends to camp near each but we politely ask that people are considerate and not to set up overly-large “camping areas” to ensure everyone has enough room to enjoy the campsite and all have a fair amount of space.

The shop also sells tent accessories such as pegs, sleeping bags, rollmats, blankets, bed socks, air beds, camp chairs, pillows, torches, phone chargers and more.
