One camping ticket is required per camping pitch (tent/motorhome/caravan) not per person. Tickets for camping will be available to weekend ticket holders only. This year you will be able to drive onto the festival campsite, pitch your tent and park next to it. The camping field will be directly adjacent to the main festival site and organisers promise the best mobile toilet and shower facilities available.


The festival stems from a series of concerts held at the farm to raise funds for local projects such as the village Cricket Club, Church and Preschool. Now the aim is to develop those concerts into a weekend festival held in a purpose built big-top concert marquee and for the first time this year there will be the opportunity to pitch up and stay at the festival campsite.

During the year Cannon Hall Open Farm offers visitors an educational insight into the day to day workings of a modern farmyard. Activities include, milking demonstrations, a rare breeds barn, small-animal petting, animal feeding, tractors, farm machinery as well as a new adventure playground, decent facilities, farm shop and delicatessen.
