How it works

 You can buy in advance - and save 25% - or pay on the day.

You can buy tickets in advance or pay on the day. The festival is supporting grass roots sport in Milton Keynes by helping to raise funds for MK RFC.

No-one under the age of 18 is permitted to drink or be served alcohol. No alcohol is permitted to be brought into the festival. All bags will be checked on arrival.

The cider bar runs on a token system. Each token buys one half pint of cider. Tokens can be bought in advance - 5 tokens for £9 - or on the day - 5 tokens for £10 or 11 tokens for £20. Unused tokens are not refundable. Tokens are on sale in the tent next to the cider bar.

Cider is available to take away in two pint containers. Cider ranges from £3.60 to £4 a pint. Lager, beer and a range of other alcoholic and soft drinks will be available from the club bar.

Feel free to bring camping chairs, picnic rugs and sun shades - whatever makes you feel comfy! Sorry but no picnic hampers!

Please drink reponsibly.
