This years festival will be an exclusive celebration of the Blues and in a much smaller venue than previous years.
As such tickets will be strictly limited. When they are gone they are gone and no more will be released.
It will be held in Church Stretton on Saturday 2nd July 2016.
Please read the below Frequently Asked Questions before contacting us.
Can I get free childrens tickets and young persons consessions like previous years?
Unfortunately not. This is an exclusive event and tickets are severely limited. We have only 100 tickets for sale to the general public. As such we are unable to offer concessions of any sort.
Please note under 18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult throughout the festival.
Can I bring my own chair?
Yes of course. Folding and inflatable chairs are welcome as are blankets to sit on.
Can I bring my dog?
Well behaved dogs kept on a lead are welcome. Please remember to bring a poop scoop and clean up after your dog.
Can I bring my own booze?
Sadly no. One of the conditions of our license is that no alcohol may be brought into the event. By buying a ticket you consent to being searched by our security and having any alcohol confiscated.
There will be a fully stocked bar selling beers, lagers, cider and wine at reasonable prices.
We absolutely guarantee there will be no inflated festival prices at Blues’n’Roots.
Can I bring a picnic?
Yes of course. We want this to be a great family day out and what a great way to spend an afternoon having a picnic and listening to some great music.
Can I bring a bottle of wine to drink with a picnic?
Sadly no. No alcohol, glasses or glass bottles may be brought onto the event. It is a condition of the license.
What’s this I hear about commemorative tankards?
We love our town the way it is and wish to leave only footprints.
So in an attempt to be environmentally friendly and cut down on litter we have decided not to use cheap plastic glasses that tend to split and get chucked. Instead we have partnered up with our pals at STACKCUP ™ and commissioned Blues’n’Roots commemorative tankards.
Our tankards are eco-friendly, washable and most importantly reusable. The StackCup is set to permanently change the way in which we drink at festivals. Gone are the days of spillage as you make your way back to your mates, hands covered in beer, trying to carry three pints and leaving most of it on the grass. With the stack cup one pair of hands is all you need.
Your tankard will be added to the price of your first drink.They are reusable and we think as cool as a jewel. Why not bring yours back next year?
Take a look at them in action and get that tune 🙂
I already have a stack cup or beer flask. Do I need to buy another?
Of course not. That’s the whole idea. Simply bring yours with you. It must be plastic or aluminiun though as there is a strictly NO GLASS OR BOTTLE condition to the license of the festival.
What food will be available and are there vegetarian options?
Our friends from The Whitehouse Restaurant in Church Stretton will be cooking you fantastic hot dogs and burgers as well as vegetarian options.
Will there be toilets? Yes we have ample toilets including disabled access. Our toilets will be cleaned throughout the day.
Is there a cash machine on site? Not on site though Church Stretton is a small town and the nearest one is less than a 5 minute walk away next door to the Co op. Once you have your wrist band you are free to come and go as you please throughout the event.
Where can I park? There is all day parking in the town centre car parks. Parking costs £3.60 for 24 hours in Church Stretton.
