CAMPING


STANDARD

Campers should pitch tents in designated camping areas only and stay out of fire lanes and other working areas. The Promoter reserves the right to re-locate Your accommodation to another area of the Venue should weather conditions deem it necessary to do so.

Gazebos, awnings or trailer tents are not allowed on the campsite.

You should bring a tent that is sized for the amount of occupants. We reserve the right to refuse to allow any structures which are too large or which we believe may cause a health and safety risk.

We will not be liable for any failure to provide any advertised facilities within the camping area and we shall not be held liable for matters outside of its control, including those which may result in any loss of amenity, for example, where a third party supplier fails to provide utilities on time, or where natural changes to the landscape or where poor weather conditions are experienced.

All items brought to a campsite are brought and left at Your own risk.

For safety reasons, we will not permit any cylinder or petrol cookers, nitrous oxide or aerosols over 250ml into the campsites, or anywhere on site. Small gas camping stoves with butane/propane canisters under 250g are permitted.

You cannot cook or use a BBQ anywhere on the campsite or the venue itself. Campervan Ticket holders only will be permitted to bring in gas containers up to the limit of 13kg.


CAMPERVAN

All standard camping terms and conditions are applicable in addition to the Campervan specific terms outlined in this section.

Entry to the campervan field is only possible with the advance purchase of a campervan ticket. One ticket is required per campervan.  The campervan ticket is not a valid entry ticket alone, but is purchased in addition to entry tickets for all residing in the campervan. Purchase of a campervan ticket and entry to the campervan field is not permitted without a valid weekend ticket / wristbands.

Campervan tickets are available in advance only for site planning purposes. The campervan ticket must be booked in the name of the driver as ID will be requested on the gate.

Campervan tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.

The Event Organiser reserves the right to search all vehicles upon entry. Campervan Ticket holders in the campervan field only will be permitted to bring in gas containers up to the limit of 13kg.

No towed vehicles are allowed on site so consequently caravans and trailer tents will NOT be permitted.

Room for campervans is limited at the festival. You will be allowed 5 x 5 meters of space per campervan pitch, no tents will be permitted amongst the campervans for fire safety reasons. It is your responsibility to ensure all vehicles and tents fit into this area or risk removal from site, in which case refunds will not be issued.

Please note the ground on Porlock Hill can be quite uneven due to its location, we will endeavour to provide a level pitch.


BOUTIQUE CAMPING

All standard camping terms and conditions are applicable in addition to the Boutique Camping specific terms outlined in this section.

All Boutique Camping Accommodation is as per description at the time of booking, but this does not mitigate our right to amend any errors in pricing or description.

You undertake to keep any part of the Boutique Camping Accommodation that is a tent completely closed and secure and in particular any door fastened when not in use.

You undertake not to use any lighting, heating, cooking or other gas or electrical appliances within the confines of the Camping Accommodation.

You undertake not to light, or allow to be lit, any fire, candle or other naked flame within or close to the Camping Accommodation.


HOTEL

The Event Organiser shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with Your use and/or occupation in any accommodation outside the Venue. E.g Hotels, B&Bs, Apartments. There is no accountability to the Event Organiser for any loss, theft or damage to property, any personal injury, any noise issues, any dispute in connection with charges for sundries and/or the availability of advertised amenities.



CANCELLATION, CHANGE OR POSTPONEMENT

The Event is subject to licence. The Event Organiser does not offer refunds for ticket purchases unless the Event is cancelled in which case we will refund the ticket price less the booking fees and any other charges which we cannot recover. This is an industry­ wide standard. 

If the Event is cancelled, ticket holders will be offered seats at the rescheduled Event/s (subject to availability) up to the face value of the tickets or, if the ticket holder is unable to attend the rescheduled Event or the Event is not rescheduled, a refund of the ticket price. Refunds for tickets purchased prior to the date of the original Event will be given up to their face value. If an Event takes place over several days and only one day is cancelled, a partial refund only may be payable corresponding to the day(s) cancelled. If the Event is moved or rescheduled, the Event Organiser may set refund limitations. This does not affect your statutory rights.

You should check whether the event has been cancelled and the date and time of any rearranged event. If the event is cancelled or rescheduled, the Event Organisers will endeavour to notify ticket holders of the cancellation. We cannot guarantee that you will be informed of cancellation before the time of the event.

We the Event Organiser accept no responsibility for your personal property. There will be a designated lost and found office located on the Event site.

All advertised times are approximate and subject to change. It is your responsibility to make appropriate arrangements to ensure that you arrive at the Venue in sufficient time in case the Event starts early and to ensure that you are able to stay until the close of the Event should you wish to if it overruns. We will not be responsible to make any refund or meet the costs of any alternative travel arrangements or for any loss of enjoyment or other indirect loss as a result of an Event not running to the precise advertised times.

In the event of a cancellation, postponement or “Material” alteration of the Event (defined below) you will be entitled to a refund in accordance with these terms and conditions. Personal arrangements including travel, subsistence and accommodation in relation to the Event which have been arranged by you are made at your own risk and neither the authorised ticket agent nor the Promoter will have any liability for any such loss of enjoyment or wasted expenditure. A “Material” alteration is a change which in our reasonable opinion makes the Event materially different to the Event which purchasers of the Ticket could reasonably expect. Changes to performance times, supporting acts and the use of understudies in a theatre performance shall not be considered a Material alteration. The Event is judged by reference to the overall theme rather than the individual act scheduled to appear. No scheduled acts may be considered as headline acts, regardless of their relative fame or prominence in the billing, and so cancellation by an artist will not entitle you to a refund, regardless of their position on the bill.

It is your responsibility to check that the Event has not been cancelled, rescheduled or made the subject of a Material alteration. Information on such matters will be made available as soon as reasonably practicable on the Event website and/or at the Venue. Customers are advised that the website cannot always be updated immediately and that circumstances giving rise to cancellation, postponement or Material alterations can sometimes arise immediately prior to an Event.
