Most events take place either at the Leisure Centre or at Memorial Hall, but other venues are also used, such as Beverley Minster and the Priory. All the venues are within a ten minute walk from the campsite and the Festival Village at the Leisure Complex is a perfect place to wander about, browse through the various trade, craft and music stalls, enjoy the workshops and activities for all the family and listen to the many performances at the Wold Top marquee while enjoying a pint of the specially created Festival Brew. Children up to the age of eleven are admitted free of charge to make it a perfect and low cost weekend for all the family to enjoy. The festival campsite has the added benefit of having access to the Leisure Complex facilities.
Tickets are on sale, available as both weekend (£80 adult weekend, £60 12-17yrs, 0 - 11 years old Free, camping £10 extra) and day tickets (£25-£43). For the prices details and to order (not available to order online) please see here.
