How much will it cost me?

- 0-5 is FREE!
Do we have to walk miles when we get there? ‘cos the little ones aren’t gonna like that…
Not at all! The car park/bus drop off point is just over the road from the camp site, less then two minutes away. There will be people on hand to help you with your bags if your hands are full as well!
The campsite, is there an area just for us family folks?
There is indeed! Returning for 2018 we have a completely separate field for family camping, right beside the massive adventure playground and a 5 minute walk from the main arena.
And the distance to the festival site?
Again, don’t you worry about any long marches! A five minute walk and you’ll be in the heart of the festival. This is up a very slight hill, but most of the route is on a hard standing pathway.
Rest assured that them, and YOU will have a great time!
