Next years festival will be on Saturday 30th May 2015.
Early Bird tickets will be on sale soon.
Where can I get Children or Under 18 tickets?
Children under 12 are admitted free but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Tickets for young people 12 to 17 cost £10.00 and can only be purchased at the gate when accompanied by an adult buying an adult ticket. Proof of age may be required.
Can I bring my own chair?
Yes of course. Folding and inflatable chairs are welcome as are blankets to sit on. You can also purchase chairs at the event courtesy of our festival merchandise seller The Old Hip Joint.
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 onto the Rectory Field. 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 field. It is a condition of the license.
What’s this I hear about commemorative tankards?
We love Rectory Field and Wood 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, reusable and washable. 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 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?
We will have a fantastic selection of foods, including vegetarian.
Have a look at our food vendors.
Will there be toilets? Yes we have ample toilets including disabled toilets which 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 exchanged your ticket for a wrist band you are free to come and go as you please throughout the event.
Where can I park? There is limited all day parking in the town centre car parks and we also have access to the Church Stretton School car park which will be sign posted on the day.
How can I contact you? You can email us at email@example.com We will try to get back to you within 24 hours.
