This year camping in the beer festival field will be for tents only. We will ask campers to be considerate of their neighbours and leave a minimum distance between tents not in the same group. There will also be a quiet family area.
We want to continue to encourage people with campers and caravans to attend the Festival and this will still be possible as there is an alternative site in the village within easy reach that also offers loos, power and showers: The Gate Hangs High. If you can detach your tent from your vehicle and leave it in the parking area then you will be able to park in the Festival field. If your tent is not detachable from your vehicle then you will be directed to the Gate Hangs High.
Please note: we will be providing a limited bus service between the Gate Hangs High and the festival field on Saturday daytime and evening.
The field will open for parking and camping at 2pm on the Friday.
The suggested donation for camping at the festival (tents only) will be £10 per tent for the weekend.
No fires or barbecues can be held in the festival area but barbecues that are off the ground can be used in the camping area with sensible precautions. There will be a ban on bringing your own alcohol on to the main site on the Saturday.
We know these changes will not please everyone, but we want to continue to operate a fun and safe event for everyone and continue to make this the biggest and best charity beer festival in the UK.
