We’ll be open on Friday 29th May 2020, from 6pm for the CAMRA beer and cider festival and live music until 11pm.

On Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st, festival stalls and activities will be open from 11am to 5pm. Live entertainment and beer festival are open all day and continue until 11pm on Saturday and around 6pm on Sunday.

£2 for adults. Free entry for children under 16, Transition Belper members and CAMRA members.

You will receive a ticket which is valid from right through from Friday evening when the festival opens until Sunday evening when it closes. You are allowed to leave and return as often as you like as long as you show your ticket.

Dogs, on a lead, are welcome but you need to bear in mind that the festival is taking place on two rugby pitches where adults and children play a physical contact sport. Do not allow your dogs to foul anywhere on the pitches and always clean up and dispose of the mess.

Please do not bring glass of any kind onto the festival site. The festival is held on two rugby pitches and players are at high risk of injury if any broken glass is left behind after the event. Thank you for your cooperation.

We are still working on bringing renewable energy sources to this year’s festival. We always strive to power as much of the site as possible on renewable power, but in the British summer this can prove tricky! Watch this space for news on our progress…

In 2019 we had huge success with recycling at the festival. A high percentage of waste was recycled with a small quantity of waste processed to energy. We also sold reusable plastic beer cups to cut down on waste. For 2020 we have banned all single-use plastic cups and cutlery and have continued our ban on polystyrene food containers.

We’d prefer you to come on foot, bicycle or public transport if you are able to!

There will be disabled parking on site.

Please DO NOT bring your own alcohol onto the festival site. Anyone found doing so will have their drinks confiscated and be asked to leave immediately. The festival risks losing its licence if the public do not follow this rule. Thank you.
