Frequently asked questions & Useful information

For the festival days we ask ALL visitors to use the official car park which is sign posted off Rugby Road. 

Parking is £5 per car for the day or £7 to park including a programme. We accept cash and now card. 

IMPORTANT:

Categorically no smoking in the field due to the current dry weather. 

The car park is in a farmers field so can be bumpy in places. We will prioritise low cars to reserved flat space. Please drive slowly and follow the marshals instructions.

Wheel chair users and pushchairs may find the ground rough, please talk to the marshall at the car park entrance who will be able to assist. 

All drivers and persons entering the field do so at their own risk. We accept no responsibility for damage or accidents. 

We respectfully ask ALL visitors to use the official festival car park as the village gets extremely busy during the festival and we wish for residents to still have access to their homes and business. 
For any individuals not parking in the official festival parking field, please ensure that you do not block any driveways, paths or points of access. Police and parking enforcement will visit the festival.
Please also support the festival by purchasing a programme and making a donation in lieu of parking in the festival information point on the main festival field.
