Can I bring glass bottles?

No, we have a no glass policy on site this year and from now on as glass bottles end broken which is no good for bare feet and no good for sheep to eat, so please do not bring glass bottles. Glass bottles will be confiscated on your arrival, so please decant into plastic bottles (they’re still recyclable) before you come.

Will there be a family camping area?

Yes, you will be directed to the quiet camping area on request when you arrive. We’ll be working hard by re-arranging the camp site and parking to help this to happen. But please note, this is a small site.

What happens to lost kids?

They will be directed by a steward to the site office. Please do not leave young children unattended in the kid’s area, it is not a crèche. Please make sure your older children know where to find you.

Will there be a vegetarian caterer on site?

Yes, and organic and vegan food will be available too. There is also a bar and a meat caterer. We’re working hard to improve the selection of food available on site.

What disabled facilities do you have?

Please let us know your requirements, so that we can do our best to meet your needs. Things that we can provide are convenient parking and camping near the event area, electric supply for charging wheelchairs and disabled access toilet facilities.

Where do we dispose of rubbish on site?

Due to our environmental policy there will be plenty of recycling points around the site. Please make good use of these and anything that cannot be recycled please dispose of carefully in the litter bins or take home with you. Camping is on a field and sheep may be grazing here after you have left, so please leave nothing behind. Sheep do not eat cigarette butts!

Can we have fires and barbecues in the camping fields?

No. This is for the safety of other party goers.

Do we have to pay to park?

We will ask £5 per car to park. This will go towards preparing and clearing the field and of course lots of toilets.

Can I park my car by my tent?

For health and safety reasons, you will not be able to park with your tent, so you may have a very short walk to make with your kit. When we say short, we mean it. Parking isn’t 3 miles away like some festivals; this is a compact site and the furthest possible camping spot will be no more than about 100 yards. We’ve made this rule to help prevent accidents and for the comfort and security of our campers and local residents.

Can I bring my caravan, mobile home, live in vehicle?

We will have space for a limited number of live-in vehicles / caravans on site. Please contact us before hand to arrange. If you just turn up, you may be turned away. Remember… NO DOGS are allowed on site and being in a vehicle is deemed to be onsite.

Can I get onto the site for free?

You have two choices – you can either pay or you can volunteer as a steward (we have a number of vacancies available). If you try and blag your way on for free please remember that EVERYONE who has organised this Event has given up many, many hours of their own time for nothing, and are not getting paid whatsoever. We keep the cost as low as possible this way. Please respect those who have worked hard to make this Event possible.

Is there Public Transport to the site from local train stations?

Yes, You can get a train to Welshpool or Gobowen stations and from these you can pick up local buses to Llanfyllin. The site is just a short 1/2 mile walk from the Town centre. You can look at a journey planner and timetables here.

Can I bring my Yak, Hamster, Goat, Anteater, Horse?

I’m afraid not, it would be unfair to the dog owners.
