As a thank you for sticking with us and to celebrate being back together, we invite you to spend an extended bank holiday weekend with us. Let’s face it, nobody is ever ready to go home on Monday, so we hope four nights camping will give families a chance to really relax and get back to nature together. The extra night’s free camping on Monday 31st May means you can take your time to explore further our very special home of Pippingford Park.
This means the festival opens on Friday 28th May at 12noon and will close on Tuesday 1st June at 12noon.
The programme times will remain more or less the same, so on the Monday, there won’t be any formal scheduled performances or activities. All the bars and vendors will remain open and we are looking at arranging some self led activities and direct access to the Ashdown Forest. So treat it like a bonus day of camping and exploring the wonderful nature on offer in and around the festival site. If you want to leave on the Monday still, that is of course fine.
For those of you with standard camping tickets and those staying in the live in vehicle field or park and pitch field, you don’t need to do anything, other than perhaps pack an extra pair of clean socks…
For those of you who have booked glamping accommodation, your glamping provider will be in touch soon to let you know your options. You will be able to choose between topping up with a small additional fee to stay the extra night, or leaving on the Monday as originally scheduled.
