You are not permitted to bring alcohol on-site although of course feel free to bring water. We have a fully stocked and licensed bar serving all the alcoholic beverages and soft drinks your boozy selves require.
We ask that where possible you support the local street food on-site, who have really taken a hit during lockdown like the majority of the hospitality industry. Unless you have specific dietary requirements all food consumed at the festival must be purchased from all the tasty cuisines at the festival! Meat, savouries, sweets, ice creams, veggie, vegan and gluten free options are all available.
Please do not wander onto neighbouring land, follow the white arrows on the trees and do not stray off the trodden paths due to nettles, brambles, eye level branches and rabbit warren holes etc.
