How it works

 Buy ahead - and save.

You can buy tickets in advance or pay on the day. Early bird adult tickets £4 on Friday and £6 for Saturday. Second release advance tickets £6 on Friday and £8 on Saturday. Final release and on the day tickets £8 on Friday and £10 on Saturday. Children go free.

The festival supports grass roots sport in Northampton. Since we started, we have helped to raise over £10,000 for Old Scouts RFC.

 In our first year, we also raised £1,500 to support LU15, the campaign to help Northampton schoolboy Luis Ghaut and to raise awareness about Osteosarcoma.

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 until April 30 - 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 or dogs!

Please drink reponsibly.
