Additional info

Wychwood is a festival not only of music, but crammed full of other things for attendees to see and do, from comedy to cinema, and from workshops to the healing gardens, and attracts all generations to enjoy a weekend of easy festival going.

The festival is expected to continue with the same camping set up, whereby you will be able to drive up to your camping pitch, and unload your camping gear right by where you are setting up. The campsite is flat, and always in great condition. Then emptied cars must be driven off the campsite and to the car park. After the festival, you'll be able to drive back to your pitch to load up.
