What can I expect?
A great day out! Once you’ve purchased your tickets you can expect your day to be filled with gourmet goodies, dreamy drinks, chart-topping live music and more festival fun. Do have a look through the rest of the website to see all of the foodie delights we have in store for you and so you're festival ready!
The three days are split into five sessions/ticket types:
How to get there
We are very fortunate to be allowed to host Pub in the Park in Knutsford and rely on the support of our neighbours to do so. So that we can return next year, we need to be mindful of our local community and we kindly ask you to consider your impact on local residents when accessing and leaving the site.
If you are arriving on foot from Knutsford, your best route in would be to take a left when you reach the roundabout on Chelford Road and walk towards Booths Hall; you will then see the entrance to the festival on your right hand side. This is a 20 minute walk from the high street.
We have ample free of charge onsite car parking - if you are planning on driving you will see clearly marked traffic signage directing you to the appropriate entrance point.
All taxi firms in the surrounding area have been informed to be readily available throughout the weekend. There will be a taxi drop off and collection point which will be within a car park adjacent to The Lambing Shed and a 20 metre walk to the festival site.
We have also agreed preferential rates with MiniCabit who you can book in advance with to drop you off and pick you up from site, if you follow this link and type in code PUB18 you can get £5 off your booking!
Is there camping at the event?
There is no opportunity to camp at this event unfortunately, there are several near-by hotels who will have rooms available - make sure you book early!
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. You are welcome to bring in your own water to stay hydrated.
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.
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@example.com 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?
Due to the nature of the festival, only service dogs are allowed to the event.
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 #PITP 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!
Can I bring a camping chair?
Unfortunately we do not allow camping/fold-up chairs to Pub in the Park, however feel free to bring a picnic blanket or rug, and there will be lots of seating around the festival too.
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.
Is there anywhere for me to go before/after my session starts?
Toft Cricket Club just down the road from The Lambing Shed is open from 5pm - 11pm on the Friday, and 11am - 11pm on the Saturday and Sunday. Pop over to watch a spot of cricket and a few bevvys!
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
