Up to 3,000 people may attend this event. We want to make sure that your stay is a memorable one. One way we can do that is to make sure that you have access to good facilities. We have contracted some very experienced events management partners to help us cater for your needs at the event. In addition to ample toilet and parking facilities, we are also engaging a team of experienced stewards and parking attendants. The site is also disabled-friendly with toilet provisions and all areas of the venue accessible to wheel-chair users, the sight impaired, those with hearing difficulties and the elderly. The site will be lit after dusk and is fenced to ensure that high risk areas are not accessible to children or the unwary. Pedestrian routes will also be clearly marked.
If there are any facilities that are not mentioned in our list below, please let us know so that we can consider them. As always all comments and ideas should be sent to our Festival Team. We gets loads of e-mails and can't respond from our admin e-mail address, but we will forward your comments on every time.
There will be a great selection of stalls to entertain on the day. We also have a package for stall holders and we are always looking for all types of stalls including clothes, musical instruments, food, alternative therapies etc.
If you are interested please send an email to our Festival Team and mark it for the attention of the Stalls Team. We can't reply from our admin e-mail address but we will pass your details on every time.
Toilet facilities will be provided on site and in official camping areas. These will include facilities for those with mobility difficulties.
Our venue is on a inclined picnic field. The grass is compacted and well maintained and will present little challenge to those who use walking aids (sticks, frames etc). All tents have wide access. Seating will not be provided so if you require a chair then please bring a folding seat or similar
There is shelter within the tents on site however in the event of very hot weather then you may need sun cream and a hat if you want to spend your day outdoors. The site is surrounded on its perimeter by trees, however you will be unable to see the performance area from here so do not rely on sitting under a tree for shelter and a good view! The stage is to the south of the venue area and on a sunny day at this time of year you can expect the sun to shine directly down onto the audience.
We will be providing a team of trained stewards on the day, in addition to the parking team. There will also be overnight security at the venue throughout. Security and stewards will use radio and mobile phone to communicate so you will never be far away from good support if you need it. The back stage area will be secure and members of the public will not be admitted.
Northamptonshire Police will be in attendance . First Aiders on site will also provide first-aid assistance if you need it. Our nearest A&E departments are less than 30 minutes away in Kettering and Northampton. The nearest ambulance station is in Kingsthorpe some 10 minutes away.
A well stocked beer tent will be open throughout the festival, supplied by Nobby's Brewery www.nobbysbrewery.co.uk.
