The festival site has expanded rapidly during the past few years, with a ‘tipple tent’ on the car park including a gin and prosecco bar.

The Ferret is providing BBQ food and the main beer barn is back in action.

Tokens will be in operation with £1.60 for a half pint of ale and £1.80 for a half pint of cider.


The beer barn indoors will host 57 ales and 28 ciders – many of those being fruit ciders.

Food wise you’re looking at £5 for a cheesburger, £4 for veg chilli and nachos and £5 for a pulled pork roll.

Full beer list and tasting notes can be found on the Continental website.
