Yes, there is full weekend camping, as well as guaranteed plot, pre-pitched tents and Boutique Camping available. Campervan spaces are available but are limited in number. Camping is great fun but if it’s not your thing, there are also a number of lovely hotels, B&B’s and farmhouses nearby, and public buses and taxis to get you to and from site.
You are only able to purchase camping tickets for the full weekend, we do not have individual night camping tickets available. That said, how long you stay is up to you.
Unfortunately, you cannot have a tent or awning next to a motorhome due to the space available and safety restrictions.
All our campsites are child-friendly so there are no specific family camping areas. Please note that all camping spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis unless you book a guaranteed plot in advance. More information on pre-bookable pitches will be available soon.
Campers are welcome to bring food and drink to the campsites, although there will also be concessions here serving coffee and breakfasts each morning. A wide selection of food and drink will be available for purchase in the Main Arena, where festival-goers will not be permitted to bring their own items for consumption with the exception of baby food for the littlest ones.
The UK’s top chefs will be cooking up a storm in The Big Kitchen and it’s going to be popular. To be as fair as possible, seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so you won’t be able to book a place beforehand. We recommend planning your day in advance and getting to your chosen sessions early to get a good spot!
As much as we love dogs, things would get a little chaotic if every man and his dog came along. So we’ve decided the men (and women and children) can come, but the dogs must stay at home. Guide and assistance dogs are, of course, welcome.
The Big Feastival is for everyone, big and small. There’ll be plenty of hands-on activities for both big and little ones. On top of this, we have nappy changing facilities, quiet feeding areas and microwaves to warm up baby food or bottles as required.
There will be a wide variety of food available and we aim to cater for everyone. Sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page as we release The Big Menu in advance of the event to help you plan what you’d like to eat.
Whilst participating traders at The Big Feastival will make every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause the most common allergic reactions, there is always a risk of cross-contamination and those with allergies should be mindful of this. Please check with food traders before eating and they will be able to advise.
Yes there are cash machines within the festival site so you can top up as needed over the weekend.

All tickets can be downloaded to a smart device i.e., phone, tablet etc. This means you do not have to worry about physically printing out your ticket ahead of arriving on the farm.
If you are still struggling to print off your tickets the week of The Big Feastival, please bring your booking reference with you to the Box Office on site where we will be able to help you further.
We are proud to be supporting Magic Breakfast and The Flying Seagull Project for The Big Feastival 2021. To find out more information about our charity partners see below!
Magic Breakfast works with over 960 schools in disadvantaged areas of the UK, helping to ensure that around 167,000 children receive a nutritious breakfast every school day to set them up for a morning of learning.
During lockdown, when schools were closed to most pupils, Magic Breakfast worked with its partner schools to ensure that the most vulnerable children were still able to access a healthy breakfast, whether they were at school, or home.
Professional entertainer Ash Perrin founded The Flying Seagull Project in 2008 to bring happiness to children who are underprivileged, marginalised or suffering. The UK-based charity currently has more than 20 entertainers engaged in arts workshops, music and dance lessons, circus shows and clown doctoring. Together they’ve spread love, light and laughter to more than 130,000 children in hospitals, orphanages, deaf/blind schools, refugee camps and slums around the world.
The Flying Seagull Project works with disadvantaged young people in the UK and across Europe and the Middle East, especially children affected by the refugee crisis. You can find out more by visiting their website and can stay in touch with them on social media.
