IMPORTANT note for campers!

In the last few years, the campsite has been free to campers visiting our event.

However this year, the festival campsite and marquee are subject to the rules of the Garrison House grounds, in which they are situated. In order to comply with these rules, and to improve the festival experience for everyone, we are providing portaloo toilets at the campsite and extra security at both the campsite and the marquee.

To assist with the added cost that this will incur, we would expect and appreciate a suggested £10 donation from each tent, campervan & motorhome.

Please be aware that the campsite is only available from Thursday 3rd September until Noon on Tuesday 8th September. Anyone using the camping facilities will be required to comply with the Garrison House rules which will be distributed at the campsite.

Thank you for your understanding.
