Tipi hire at the festival

We've teamed up with the Tipi Company to offer some stunning accommodation for this years' festival.

Forget the hassle of finding and packing all that camping gear and instead live like a king with a genuine Tipi or a luxury Bell Tents. They contain everything you need for a fabulous four day festival!

Each Tipi has a carpet and 6 comfortable faux fur covered mattresses which are spread out around the central fire bowl.

Even though it's August and warm enough during the day, one of he joys of a Tipi is being able to have a real fire for extra warmth and comfort in the evening. Perfect for you and your friends to relax and unwind after an exciting day.

For full details, please visit the Tipi Company

Seth Lakeman Competition / Early Bird Tickets


Our early-bird ticket price comes to an end at the end of this month, and 31st March is the last day we will sell tickets at the lowest price.

Ticket prices are currently £75 for an adult 4 day ticket, and £37.50 for youths (aged 11-17), but ticket prices will rise on April 1st, there are full details of all ticket breakdowns here

Last year the festival sold out, and ticket sales are much stronger this year and we will definitely sell out again – it’s difficult to gauge exactly when this will happen, but please don't leave it too late!


Seth and his superb band are playing at the Buttermarket in Shrewsbury on 27th April, and we have two tickets to give away to this concert.

Everyone who buys (or has already bought) an early bird ticket will be entered into the draw to win free tickets to Seth's Shrewsbury gig in April.

We'll contact the winner in the first week in April. Good Luck!

Those wishing to purchase tickets for Seth's show can do so on 0871 230 1083 or direct from the venue.

Refolkus 12 - 25 years

Following last years' success of our programme aimed at 12 - 25 yr olds, Izzy and Cait have been working hard on a revamped youth programme - now called Refolkus.

It will centre round the "Big Shed" by the entrance to the festival site - now called The Reef.

12-25 year olds will be able to attend a wide range of song, dance and instrumental workshops. A programme of inspirational workshop tutors should help to ensure everyone has a good time and learns lots of new stuff, whatever their level.

Each evening around teatime the Reef will host a session and a chance to socialize and plan the evening's entertainment.

We'll post more details closer to the event!
