Is camping available?

Camping pitches will go on sale on 06/11/23. Update: Our camping pitches are now all sold out! Should any pitch be cancelled, we will add it back online.

Access to camping pitches will be made available at 1:00pm on the Friday and 11:30am on the Saturday. Each person camping is still required to purchase a separate admission ticket for the event. No electrical hookup is available. For 2024 we will be providing an IBC for your camper/motorhome/caravan toilet disposal before you leave. Those staying over will have access to a fresh water supply and toilets. Caravan owners will have to park their cars in the car park once their caravan is in place.

Those staying over on the Friday night only must vacate their pitch by 11am on the Saturday. All pitches must be vacated by 12pm on Sunday 16th June.

From what time will the gates be open?

We’ll open general admission from 5:00pm on Friday 14th and 12:00pm on Saturday 15th.

Can I buy tickets at the event?

Yes, but please be aware that we do have an attendance limit in place due to safety reasons. Our advice is to simply book in advance, which can be done here.

How much is admission?

Tickets cost £12 for the Friday and £17 for the Saturday. A weekend saver ticket can be purchased for £22. Admission is free of charge for U18s, however, they will require an accompanying adult and a U18 ticket.

Each ticket includes 1 free drink, a pint of beer or cider and, for the first time, a branded polycarbonate pint glass to take home. If you would instead prefer a polycarbonate wine glass, we will provide one.

Do you have a ticket refund policy?

Yes. Simply contact us and we’ll award you a full refund, no questions asked. Please note that you must contact us at least 28 days before the event.

The same conditions apply if you have booked a camping pitch; we will refund 100% of the cost up to 28 days before the event. We will also offer you a refund for the pitch within 28 days of the event, provided we are able to resell your pitch. If we are unable to then we will not be able to refund your pitch fee.

Can I pay by card on the day or do I need to bring cash?

We will be accepting both.

Is it suitable for families?

Of course! In addition to a huge sandpit, we’ll be putting on a range of gigantic, ridiculously large pub games such as skittles and jenga. These are all, of course, completely free. A selection of soft drinks, sweets and icecream will also be on sale. New for 2024 will face painting children on the Saturday.

Please note that under-18s require a free under-18s ticket — it’s solely so that we can keep track of attendance ahead of time.

What type of music will you be playing at Festivale?

Festivale features a range of great, local musicians playing over the 2 days. Each and every act is now signed up for 2024.

From now until the end of March, we’ll be revealing new acts each week! Here’s everyone confirmed to be playing as of this moment:


  • 18:00 – 19:00 Lucy Taylor — As talented a guitarist and singer as they come! Lucy makes classic pop and singer-songwriter tunes her own with fingerpicking, a powerful voice and a good bit of local style to boot.

  • 20:45 – 22:15 Pub Lads. – The very best best pop covers.

Which charity will Festivale support this year?

For 2024 the Festivale is delighted to be supporting Pancreatic Cancer UK. An integral part of the Festivale team over the years and the Great Newsome family has been Mary James. Mary grew up at Great Newsome with both her and husband Gary being familiar faces at the Festivale helping looking after the camping ground amongst other things. Mary was sadly taken from us earlier this year by pancreatic cancer. The least we thought we could do is support a charity that works tirelessly to give sufferers of pancreatic cancer and there families hope for the future.

Yes of course, all we ask is that you don’t obstruct anyone else’s view of the stage with your gazebo.

Yes. A little bit of rain won’t put us off it is a festival after all. Make sure you prepare for what ever the British weather throws at us.

  • New for this year is Greek Treat and what a treat it will be! Greek Treat will join us both Friday and Saturday serving up traditional Greek cuisine.

Can we bring our own alcohol?

We ask you not to bring your own alcohol because we try to raise as much money as possible for good causes. We have a variety of beers, ciders, wines and prosecco at sensible prices. For example, beer will be priced at £3.50 per pint. We will be operating a Challenge 25 policy on the bar. We also offer soft drinks for young and old alike.
