No alcohol can be carried into the main events area, we have a superb bar on price which is reasonably priced. We ask that you respect the festival and limit the amount of alcohol that you bring to consume in your camping areas. No glass is permitted. Strictly no alcohol to be consumed before or during the inflatable float.
