Yes. Please check with food traders before eating and they will be able to advise but we have a wide range of food and drink available which means everybody should be catered for. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that those with air borne nut allergies will be protected as the presence of nuts on site is not only possible but highly likely.
Dress Code & Bags
There is no dress code – it is a festival after all! Please make sure you dress suitably for whatever weather. The ground is uneven in places and has a woodchip surface, so flat shoes are recommended. Anyone deemed to be wearing ‘inappropriate’ clothing will not be allowed entry.
There will be a small cloakroom, but as there is limited space available, please refrain from bringing any large or heavy baggage.
Please use common sense, cooperate with all searches and keep your belongings with you at all times.
If your bag contains glass, alcohol or anything which could be deemed as a weapon or inappropriate item, it will not be allowed on site, we cannot hold these items for later collection so any items left outside the entrance will be safely disposed of where possible.
The event has both outside and inside spaces. Check the weather and always be prepared for the possibility of rain – personally, we love the festival poncho and wellies look!
The showground outside has a wood chip surface, please advise the festival organisers if you are a wheelchair user or have access requirements so that we can assist you, we want to make the day as enjoyable as possible for you. Indoor areas have a concrete floor.
Please contact the person in your organisation that made the booking, they can change names and details on the guest registration system. If you are a booker who requires help with this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
