Tips to get the very best out of your visit



The Festival site opens at 10am.  The last talk finishes around 6.30pm.

Car Parking

There is free car parking on a field adjacent to the site. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk to the main marquee. Please bear in mind that the field can get muddy in poor weather. Please wear suitable footwear.

What to Bring

Come prepared for the vagaries of a typical English summer’s day!

Picnic Area

There are many great spots to picnic at the Festival.  All that we ask is that you don’t leave any rubbish behind. Please use the mixed waste bins located around the Festival site to dispose of your rubbish.


There are designated disabled parking spaces. The marquee, café, bar and bookshop are accessible to wheelchair users though some surfaces may be slightly uneven.
