The festival offers four Stages set in 92 acres of parkland. For further convenience the site has been re-arranged from last year. The events site and parking site have been swapped to enable festival goers to drive directly onto the campsite and park right next to your tent. The events site will be nearer the The Stately House itself and surrounded by trees. The events site will also be more compact and cosy with craft stalls and food easier to access. The festival will also have 2 extra domes to include a cinema and a children's tent to feature workshops.

The festival also has stalls, craft displays, juggling schools, workshops, soccer skills, cinema, food hall, breakfast café on camp site, comedy hour, a buskers stage, a real ale tent, fair trade, children's area, camping, a tipi circle, and more. Access is permitted to the Festival arena from 12.00 pm Friday until 11pm Monday.

There will be more information here when available.
