Frequently Asked Questions 

Is the event free?

The event is free to attend with all of the family but there will be charges within the site. Some activities are free and available to all.


What time is the festival site open from & until this year?

The festival site will be open on Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from 11am to 7pm.

Is there a printed programme available?

After feedback and the great success of the programme in 2019, we will have a printed programme available across the site on the event weekend. This will be free of charge.


Alternatively, there will be an online copy available nearer to the event. 

Can I bring dogs/guide dogs on-site?

Yes but all dogs must remain on dog leads at all time due to the location being next to a farm and sheep fields. If any dogs are found to have no leads on, we will ask the owner to leave the site immediately with the dog.

Where is the best place to park?

There is parking available on site but this is limited. Alternatively, there is parking available in Wimborne which is around a 15-minute walk from the site. Please do not park on the main road adjacent to the site.

More information about your visit can be found here.

Can I bring my own food and drink?

Of course! Bring a blanket and relax with the family in front of our main stage. We will not have any table or chairs available on-site to sit at, so in the event of wet weather, please be aware of this.

Is there a cash point available on site?

Due to the rural location, there is no cashpoint available on site. The nearest cash point can be found in Wimborne high street which is around a 15-minute walk from the site.
