We are pleased to offer free entrance to all CAMRA & CURAS members at all sessions upon producing a valid membership card. Not a CAMRA member? You can join CAMRA at the Festival or Join CAMRA online.

We offer free soft drinks for designated drivers at paying sessions.

The CAMRA Cheese Counter stops service 30 minutes before before the festival closes.

Card payments

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept payment at the entrance or at the bars by debit/credit cards, sorry, but it is cash only. We have a pass-out scheme, should you need to visit a cash machine (map showing location of cash machines), our volunteers will be able to help locate one if needed. In addition, some of the stalls inside the marquee take card payments and may offer cash back with a purchase.

Age Verification

Under 18s are allowed on site, but must be with a responsible adult - a 17 year old with an 18 or 19 year old friend is not sufficient. As at any licensed premises, it is illegal to buy alcohol if you are under 18, or to buy alcohol for anyone under 18.

At the bars, the festival supports and operates the Challenge21 scheme; if you are lucky enough to look young, then please don't be offended if and when you are asked for ID to check you are over 18. The only acceptable ID is a government issued photo ID (photo driving licence or passport) or a card showing the PASS Scheme hologram. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

Disabled Access

Whilst the festival is outdoors, disabled access is possible. More details available here.
