Organisers have had to discontinue the bucket collections due to problems with red tape, health & safety and insurance issues... so they will be selling weekend wristbands instead as a pledge and a symbol of the attendees commitment these are priced at £10 for a weekend wristband.
Purchase of weekend wristbands is not compulsory although admission to each venue is at the discretion of the management and some venues may require wristbands to be worn.
Swanage offers plenty of places to stay and is on the Jurassic coast.
