Camping is priced at £10 per night (purchasable when tickets go on sale) and available for caravans, campervans, tents and indoor camping. Hanwell Fields School will be used for indoor camping again this year. Camping for Campervans and Caravans will be at Drayton Leisure Golf Centre nearby. Because the capacity for caravans and campervans is limited, priority will be given to Season Ticket holders on those sites. Indoor camping and campers wanting to use tents are unaffected.
Dogs and other animals are not allowed at the main venues, or at the campsites.
There is plenty of Hotel and Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the locality.
For those who commute to the festival there is plenty of car parking available at Banbury Railway Station car park only a couple of minutes away from the main venues. The station's own parking charges apply.
More information will be here when available.
