We are a cashless site and only take card payments for entry, kids tickets and beer service. However, our other vendors may take cash at their own discretion.
Are pets allowed?
We welcome all of your four legged friends, as long as they’re kept on a leash and are well behaved. However, please note they are not allowed in the tents, or in the picnic area. We also have other animals at the festival, so please bare this in mind.
Can I bring my own food & alcohol?
Outside food and alcohol is not permitted at the site. We have a beer and cider station for you so you can get a nice cold drink in the sunshine, plus plenty of non alcoholic options. There are also multiple food trucks with different cuisines, so we’re certain you’ll be able to find something you like!

Smoking is not permitted on site.
