The campsite is divided into separate areas; an area for campervans, caravans and motorhomes and four general camping areas. Two camping areas are adjacent to the main arena, one adjacent to the 2nd arena and one is located adjacent to the car park. There is a separate area for Glamping on the riverfront field.
If you have special requirements please email the office with your needs and we will try to accommodate them if at all possible.
Dogs are welcome to the Festival but must be kept on a lead at all times and looked after responsibly. Any ‘deposits’ must be bagged and disposed of correctly. Dog bins are located near to the entrances to the park. Please consider whether the festival is the right environment for your dog!

Electrical Hook Up
Available for Live in Vehicles ONLY from Friday to Sunday inclusive. 5amps (1250w) max per supply. Power supplied can only be used for the nominated Live in Vehicle and cannot be shared with other users. Please note Live in Vehicles using electrical hook-up will be sited in designated pitches and cannot be guaranteed to be sited next to others in the same group unless you arrive and park together.

If you have booked electrical hook up and are arriving with friends who have not, you cannot be sited together.

Open fires and ground BBQs are NOT allowed anywhere in the campsite. Heat from BBQs damages the grass below meaning it is unable to grow back. Camping stoves and raised BBQs are allowed but please make sure any cooking equipment is raised off the ground and in good working order.
