Additional benefits to booking tickets in advance

Two pints worth of vouchers are included in the price, redeemable against real ale (under 6% ABV), cider or perry. These can also be used as part-payment against products on the craft foreign beer and Great British wine bars. The difference between the voucher value and the price of the product you require will need to be paid when ordering your drinks at the bar.

Where to Find Us

The festival is spending its fourth year at Christchurch Meadows in Caversham, Reading

Being just outside the centre of town means it’s really easy to get to the festival on foot from Reading Station or by local bus! Reading Buses have services that run into and throughout the night to ensure you can to and from the festival with ease.

Volunteer at the Festival

The festival is built and run by our dedicated volunteers from the ground up!

There’s many benefits that our volunteers enjoy, as long as you’re volunteering for two shifts or more, as well as free entry to as many sessions as you’d like while the festival is open, you’ll also be able to drink for free (within reason) whilst you’re working and will get vouchers towards the cost of food at the site. If the role you’re doing means you can’t drink ‘on duty’, you’ll get drink tokens to use later!
