We are not short of space so there is no need to reserve a pitch to secure a place, all you need to do to camp is just turn up and buy a weekend ticket.
Our standard site for camping and caravaning area is at the top of the site. For those of you who are less abled we do have camping near to the arena for Blue Badge holders. Please bear in mind that if able bodied people seek to occup this area then there is less space for those who have need of the area.

You will find a wide range of trade stands at the festival. From bandanas to belts, pistols to parasols, hats to holsters. If you’re a trader and want to have a stand please use the contact us page and your message will be sent to the trade stand secretary.
DOGS...... Well behaved dogs on leads are welcomed at the festival however please clean up after them. Please note that the festival is attended by westerners and from time to time there will be loud discharges which may cause distress to a dog. If your dog dislikes loud sudden noises it would be advisable not to bring the dog to the festival
WRIST BANDS. At the gate, when you first enter the site, you will be given a wrist band pass which will enable you to pass freely in and out and around our festival. Our policy is that if you want to come to the festival that you MUST wear a wrist band on your wrist. (and not on your belt or in your purse or forgotten in the car or tent or caravan and no one has authority to tell you otherwise) We do NOT make any exceptions to this policy. If you are not wearing a wrist band, it is likely that it will be assumed that you have not paid the entry fee and will be asked to leave. If your wrist band is broken for any reason, please go to the secretary's tent where a replacement can be issued.
