You may bring a reasonable amount of your own food and drink for personal consumption on the camp-site but only food and drink purchased at SouthCider may be consumed in the festival area. No bottles will be allowed onto the site. Supporting the bar is vital to keeping ticket and bar prices down.

There are plenty of toilets & urinals. Showers are available for a nominal charge at the farmhouse – £1 per 5 minutes and you will need £1 coins to use them.

Q: Do you take credit cards & is there an ATM?

Unfortunately the answer to these questions are both no. Only cold hard cash will be accepted at the festival and due to the remote location and size of the festival it is not feasible to install an ATM. You can buy your tickets online in advance with credit/debit cards. There are ATM’s in Bridport which is only a few miles away should you run short of cash.

>Q: Where can we smoke?

Smoking is only permitted in the outside areas as per UK law. Both stages are undercover so you will need to step outside to partake in smoking your pipe/cigarette/shisha. Remember to use the ash-trays provided as butts all over the floor is neither pretty or healthy to the soil.
