For 2018 festival-goers will no longer be able to bring their own firewood into the campsites.
This does not mean we are banning campfires as we know how much you love them! You will still be able to purchase firewood from our onsite sellers and enjoy your campfires as usual.
Campfires lower than knee height, and less than one pace wide are permitted in the campsite. Any fires larger than this are not allowed.
There are no campfires or BBQs permitted after 20:00 on Sunday. No firewood will be on sale from 18:00 on Sunday.
Fires are not permitted in the arena at any time.
Unauthorised bonfires are not permitted anywhere at all at the festival.
Anyone seen creating or fuelling a bonfire will be evicted from the festival site on the spot.
Anyone found burning any unsuitable materials such as toxic materials, other people’s possessions or the fencing, trees or hedges onsite will be liable to eviction/prosecution.
Fire Safety Tips
- Candles are dangerous; torches are far less of a fire risk in and around tents
- Watch out for flying embers and sparks, as they could start a fire, even from some distance
- Don’t burn plastic or any other toxic materials. Anyone burning toxic materials is liable for eviction
- Never use petrol or paraffin to start or revive a fire
- If you cook, always do it outside your tent, ensure that there is constant supervision and keep well away from any flammable materials
