I don't want to camp, can I still come?
YES, with your weekend ticket camping is included but optional!
What's included in my four day festival pass?
The short answer is all children's activities, shows, camping etc!
There are certain attractions such as the fun fair, inflatables and monster truck rides which will be limited using tickets. This is simply to keep it fair to all children so all children get to have a go. We want all of the children to be able to experience all that we have on offer without the stress of queues so the best way to avoid this is to have these attractions particular ticketed.
Products, drinks and food are not included in your ticket. Some activities may require you to book in a time slot and return later. Tickets also include goody bags for parents and children.
