Markets, Food & Drink

around the festival site

The festival is surprisingly devoid of market stalls for festival shoppers, the crowd tend not to have shopping on their mind. The festival concentrates more on commercial, local and festival eating options - warning - you can spend a fortune on sampling the cuisine on offer. There are plenty of bars offering a lager, cider, wine and cocktails plus a few specialist bars serving specific brands of drinks, although not many outlets if you like ale, and it can be a bit of a walk to find the ale bar (usually up near the bandstand), plus campsite shops, and even more food options. It's rather a gastronomic feast of a weekend.
