DATES AND LOCATION

The dates for #BredonCiderFestival are Friday 7th and Saturday 8th September, at Croft Farm Water Park, near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT THEN?

Since Lakefest left Croft Farm Water Park in 2015, we have been thinking about holding a new event and feel now is the time. On Friday night we will be having a warm-up party in Lakeside Bar down by the lake with a few local favourites. Saturday will be the main event in the same field that hosted Lakefest… but this time we are having an outside stage.

HOW CHILD FRIENDLY WILL THE FESTIVAL BE AND WHAT TICKETS DO CHILDREN NEED?

There will be some bouncy fun for the children in the festival and also water sports down by the lake! Entry is free for children aged 5 and under, but they must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Please ensure that the guardian/ parent has proof of age (e.g Passport) if the child looks like they are aged 6 or over.
All those Under-18 must be accompanied by an adult – please see our Under-18 Policy, for more details!

I’M UNDER 18, CAN I BUY A TICKET?

You will require a Child Ticket that can be purchased at the same time as an adult ticket. If you are 17 or under, you MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is over 18 years old and this adult must remain on site throughout the weekend.
Please bring proof of age, as you may be required to show this when you enter the festival.

CAN I BRING IN MY OWN ALCOHOL?

Yes, you are welcome to bring your own alcohol into the camping areas only but this must be in moderation. Any alcohol that you bring is only permitted to be consumed in the camping areas. No personal alcohol will be permitted in the main festival area. Please only bring a limited amount of alcohol with you and no glass bottles are allowed. Non-alcoholic drinks may only be brought in if the bottles are sealed. Security checks will be made on entry.

CAN I BRING MY OWN BBQ?

Of course! But we take your health and safety VERY seriously. Therefore, the operation of BBQs will not be permitted at ground level due to the associated fire risk to the land. All BBQs and gas stoves must be raised from the ground by at least 12 inches. Disposable BBQs and open fires are strictly prohibited.

CAN I SELL OR USE SKY OR CHINESE LANTERNS?

Sorry folks, as pretty as they are, lanterns of this type are forbidden to be used or sold on site. They are not to be brought into the venue and/or campsite and cannot be released from the venue. Sky lanterns can cause a potential fire risk, cause damage to the countryside and wildlife.

WILL THERE BE MEDICAL COVER?

We have some super lovely medical people who are very qualified to deal with ALL festival accidents. If you need them, please go see them, they are non-judgemental people who will treat you fairly and squarely.

WILL THE TOILETS BE TO MY SATISFACTION?

Toilets at festivals are a barometer of your behaviour; the more you respect and look after the toilets, the cleaner they will be. We do our best to ensure all the toilets are serviced regularly and are as clean as possible! All toilets blocks are also fitted with an alcohol hand gel sanitiser.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

If you have a friendly dog that is used to being around lots of people, then feel free to bring your dog. Dog owners must clean up after their dogs and remain responsible for their dog at all times; please take into consideration the weather – especially if is particularly hot, access to water and to protect dogs from direct proximity to loud speakers, which could potentially, damage their hearing.
