The Cinema Tent will have animations, short films, documentaries and more. There’s also workshops and circus skills, crafts, open-mic, food, and markets.

The festival organisers are hoping for a "laid back bohemian feel to the event, in the spirit of all the original festivals before commercialism prevailed."

Tickets are on sale priced at £47 per person including camping and parking, a Thursday night set up camp, per car not per person, is an extra £5, with tickets for under 12s free. Weekend and day tickets will also be available on the gate. Price includes camper vans and caravans as well although these will be parked in a different area. Under 12s must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult/parent. Under 16s must have purchased a ticket and be accompanied by an adult over 18 in their group.

The festival area is a short walk from the main campsite. The ground is fairly level but better access and parking for disabled festival goers can be arranged in advance.

Camp fires will not be allowed on the main site or by tents but there will be a designated fire pit in the camping field for those who wish to stay up late. There will be 24hr security on both the main site and in the camping field as well as plenty of toilets.

There will be more information here once it is available.
