Can we leave cars overnight?
Yes, they may be left - at your own risk - overnight but must be collected no later than 12noon on Sunday - any cars left after this time may be towed.
Will I need wellies?
In previous years we have experienced heavy rain in the weeks leading up to the festival, however because the site is on a hill we usually have good drainage and wellies haven't been called for before - however most people like to think of wellies as a 'festival fashion' so maybe you should wear them anyway!
Can we pitch day tents/gazebos in the main field?
Yes you can, please keep them to the designated areas. They must also be removed at dusk so that they do not become a trip hazard.
