Festival Food & Drink Stalls

We will have a wide selection of festival food available throughout the events, all to be washed down with something from our numerous bars! Soft drinks and bottled water will be available from our re-hydration station. We kindly ask that people do NOT bring their own food and drink for the day, all items must be purchased on site.

Pop Up Restaurant Feasting Experiences

As well as the Festival-Food stalls, there will be two options for seated feasting at each festival, ‘The Field Kitchen with Angela Hartnett & Friends’ and ‘Mark Hix’s Ruby Murray House’. Tickets for seated feasting are available on each festival’s ticket shop.

Seated Feasting tickets MUST BE purchased IN ADDITION to a Festival Entrance ticket. Festival Go-ers will only be able to access the festival site with an Entrance Ticket. If you have purchased a Feasting ticket this can be used to Check into your Feasting Tent once you are on site. If you only have a Feasting ticket then you will not be able to get into the festival.

It will cost £5 for each black token. If something is ½ a token, change will be given in the form of a pink token which can be used towards other items. There is no cash machine on site, so please bring cash with you.

Seating and the Weather

Straw bales will be placed around the area but these will be limited. Please feel free to bring rugs, blankets, pop up chairs etc to make yourselves comfortable. If it is looking like a wet day, there will be some very limited cover available under tents and we will have plastic ponchos available for you to use…..but you might want to bring some wet weather gear and an umbrella just in case!

You are welcome to bring your own pop up gazebos/covers, but we ask for these to be placed at the back of the seating areas so that they do not obstruct the view for others.
