Frequently Asked Questions
Can we bring dogs?
Unfortunately not as the Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens have always been a dog free venue. You will be able to get your hand stamped and a wristband to allow you to leave and re-enter the festival.
Can we bring our own food and drink?
Yes, the only restrictions we have on bringing your own food and drink is that you are not able to bring any glass or your own alcohol into the venue. Our security team will be conducting bag searches at the gate. This is due to licensing restrictions. There will be plenty of food vendors and a fully licensed bar.
Can we buy tickets on the gate?
Advance tickets are just £10 per adult and under 16s are free. There may be a limited number of tickets available on the gate with adults priced at £15 but we are encouraging people to purchase in advance to avoid disappointment and to ensure a faster and smoother gate procedure, you'll also save money!
Can we leave and come back?
Yes, we will be issuing wristbands and stamping hands to ensure that people can leave and re-enter the festival.
