What does the ticket price include?

The ticket price includes entry, access to cooking demonstrations, the music and lots of other festival fun!

Am I allowed to bring my own food and drink into the festival?

Unfortunately not, but why would you want to?! We have such a fantastic array of Michelin starred, gourmet food and tasty beverages including gin bars, craft beer tents and other delights. Put away that soggy homemade sandwich!

Is it wheelchair accessible?

All our events are wheelchair accessible, however please bear in mind that the festivals are in grassy parks and therefore may be slightly hard to naivgate at times.

Disabled/Carer tickets?

All disabled visitors attending Pub in the Park on a paid for adult ticket are entitled to bring one carer free of charge. To apply for a carer ticket, please email [email protected] with your order reference number and proof of disability, ie that you are in receipt of the middle or higher rate care component of the disability living allowance (DLA) or personal independence payment (PIP). Once agreed a free carer's ticket will be added to your order and will be sent to you along with your other tickets.

Can I smoke at the event?

Yes, smoking is permitted.

Who can attend?

Adults, children and babies can attend, however, of course due to government rules, only people of the age of 18 and above can drink alcohol. We do ask that you drink responsibly but we push that you have to make sure you are enjoying yourself too! Under 6s (0-5) are free of charge, however, they will need to have their own ticket, 6 - 15 year olds will have a child ticket and over 16s will need an adult ticket.

Are dogs allowed?

Only service dogs are allowed to the event, other dogs would be too risky to have…they’d lap up your beer and we know that service dogs don’t drink on the job!

What should I bring?

First and foremost your tickets! Please also bring some form of ID, then you have no chance of someone saying no when you ask for a pint! Maybe bring some sunnies, ready for the English summer sun…one can hope. Bring your phone and use our hashtag #pubinthepark when you upload some snaps. And don’t forget some cash so you can shop for lots of goodies. If you’ve got all of them ready, then you’re good to go!

What happens if it’s raining?

We will be ready for you come rain or shine but it's always best to dress for the weather! Whilst we're hoping for sunny spells, it's an outdoor event and we all know British weather can be a bit changeable... Please bring sensible footwear and a brolly so you're prepared.

How do I get in?

Buy a ticket online quickly before they sell out. We sold out last year in 24 hours so get purchasing before someone else takes your ticket, almost as bad as taking your pint.

Do I need to bring cash?

There will be no ATMs at the festival. There will be options to pay by debit card, however not all vendors will accept cards so we would advise to bring cash.

I have a dietary requirement/allergy/intolerance. What can I eat 

There will be options to suit all dietary requirements and these will be available to view on all of the menus at the festival. Please remember to bring cash as only some venders will accept debit cards and you may have to small pay a fee for the cash machines.

Is it a family friendly event?

Yes, although it might be worth bearing in mind that alcohol will be served on site and to 18 years and up. The afternoon sessions will bring festival fun including features to keep the kids entertained, however the evening sessions will go on into the night and so you might not want to be pushing your prams around in the dark!

We can’t wait to see you all there,

Team Pub in the Park
