A rambunctious update

The Great Estate has a new date, so put it in your diaries!

Dearest rambunctious ones.
Thank you so much for your kind words and patience with us these last few months, we have been working so hard behind the scenes to make sure we can bring you the very best Great Estate to bring some light to these very strange times. Sadly, with the latest government advice, The Great Estate and Live at Scorrier House are being postponed to June 2021.

The great news is that we have confirmed that Razorlight will still be joining us on Friday, 4th June 2021, and The Libertines will still be joining us as part of Live at Scorrier House on Saturday, 5th June! Goldie Lookin Chain will also be there bringing with them their Welsh comedy hip hop songs we all know and love and Dutty Moonshine; a 14 piece Jazz trained big band fronted by Hip Hop and Grime MC’s backed by a DJ and a producer with a taste for the bass will be there too! What more could you want?

Expect the weird, the wonderful and the outrageous in what should be our 5th anniversary of The Great Estate!

All of you lucky early bird ticket holders just need to bring your tickets to the box office as they will be valid for 2021, you do not have to do anything!
If you cannot attend in June 2021, just send an email to event@greatestatefestival.com by 27th July, 2020.
If you haven’t already got your tickets, what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present!

Thank you once again to our wonderful festival family, and here’s to 2021 being the biggest, and BEST Great Estate yet!

Stay rambunctious x

In order to enforce this, we have only made it possible to purchase a young person’s ticket (13 to 17 years old) in conjunction with an adult ticket. In order to add an individual young person’s ticket to an existing order, please message us through the contact form on the website where we can process this on a one to one basis.

The tickets will be sent immediately to your email address.

General enquiry?

People are free to come and go from the festival each day, providing wristbands are worn at all times.

Youths, aged 13-17 years old, must be accompanied by and adult over the age of 21 throughout the weekend. Any youths found without an appropriate aged adult will be escorted from the venue, and their tickets will not be refunded.

No fires or BBQs are allowed in the campsite. Gas stoves are allowed.

No alcohol or food can be brought into the main festival site, you can of course bring some for personal consumption into the camping areas. There is no glass allowed at all.

Camping is only available as a weekend option. Day ticket holders must vacate the site when the festival closes at each night.

To upgrade to a camping ticket, you can purchase the camping upgrade on our ticket page or you can pay the difference in price on arrival at the box office. Ticket prices are cheaper if bought online in advance.

No dogs or other pets allowed at the festival. They cannot be in the camping area, or left within vehicles or campervans and motorhomes.

There are no charging points within the festival, so please bring a power bank to charge your mobile phones.

If you require a carers ticket, please contact the team via the contact form on our website using the ticket option on the drop down list.

There are a number of food traders within the festival site who cater for different dietary requirements. There is also food available to buy at the campsite.

There are fresh drinking water points, showers and toilets in the main camping area. There are further water points situated in the main festival arena. Stay hydrated people!

Tickets are non-refundable, under any circumstances. You are more than welcome to sell your tickets on, just let us know the new ticket holders information by using our contact form, so we can change the details.

Can I bring my dog, pets or animal?

We are afraid not unless of course, you have a guide dog. Dogs or any other animal are not permitted to be left in vehicles, campervans, motorhomes, caravans or tents.

Can I bring my own food, drink and alcohol?

You are more than welcome to bring a selection of food and drinks into the camping areas to enjoy throughout the weekend. Food and drinks are not to be brought into the main festival arena, bag searches do happen at the security points and any items found will be confiscated and disposed of.  We have a huge selection of food and drinks within the main festival site to choose from, with dietary requirements covered by most.

Bringing alcohol into the festival area is strictly prohibited, however, a small amount for personal consumption is allowed within the campsite. Up to one crate of beer or one bottle of spirits, or two bottles of wine per person per weekend camping ticket. Sadly, glass is not allowed anywhere in the festival site, so please decant into alternative carriers.

Our security team will be checking for glass containers and will confiscate any alcohol that is deemed to be more than for personal consumption.

Fresh drinking water points are located in the main camping areas, remember to stay hydrated!

What is the security situation?

There will be a vigilant security team operating within the festival, searching bags, checking vehicles and monitoring the site with CCTV. There is zero tolerance for antisocial behaviour and the use of any illegal substances.  If you see or hear anything, please let the nearest security person know about it. No glass is allowed on site, anywhere and will be confiscated if found. Knives, including Swiss Army type knives are not allowed in the festival site.  A robust fencing and security entrance system will be in operation.

How do tickets work?

When you buy your ticket online, your ticket will be emailed to the email address you provided, please ensure you enter the correct email address. Simply print this out and bring it with you to the entrance of the festival with valid ID, where it will be exchanged for a wristband(s) that allows access to the festival. You can also show the tickets on your phone so you don’t have to print anything.

Wristband collection will be available for the entire duration of the event. If you have bought a ticket with your credit card details and have given it to someone else, simply drop us an email to let us know their name and we will make sure that person can gain access.

If there are multiple people booked under one ticket order that are arriving at different times, just print the same ticket off for the individuals and our box office staff will check people in separately from the same order. This will work the same if you just show your tickets on your phone.

If you wish to camp you must purchase a weekend camping ticket. Day ticket holders do not have a camping option. If you wish to bring your motorhome, campervan, caravan or trailer tent, you must also purchase the relevant campervan/ motorhome or caravan ticket option alongside your weekend camping tickets. Each person staying in the campervan / motorhome or caravan requires a weekend camping ticket each.

Any vehicle being slept in overnight will also need a valid campervan or motorhome pitch (depending on the size of vehicle), which must have been purchased on this website. All occupants of the vehicle must also have weekend camping tickets. Camping tickets are for the whole weekend. Camping tickets are not available on a per night basis for day ticket holders.

Youth tickets can only be purchased by adults aged 21 and over. There is a family ticket option so you are able to purchase this ticket type.

Unfortunately ALL tickets are non-refundable, under any circumstances. You are more than welcome to try and sell these tickets on however you choose, please just let us know the full details of the new ticket holder and we will transfer the tickets to them and email new tickets to the new owners. Use the contact form on our website and use the ticket option from the drop down menu to let us know. Full terms and conditions can be found here

What time does the festival open?

Everyone who is camping at the festival for the weekend can arrive from 10:00 on Friday to park and pitch tents. This is an extremely popular time for people to arrive and can result in long queues. We would advise arriving later if possible so you have the best possible experience.

All day ticket holders can arrive and collect their tickets from the box office from midday on Friday and from 09.00 on both Saturday and Sunday.

The festival starts at midday on Friday and runs through to 02:00. Gates open again at 09:00 on Saturday and close at 02:00. On Sunday gates open at 09:00 and close at midnight

We ask all weekend campers to vacate the campgrounds by midday on Monday taking all of your belongings with you, please do not just leave your tents or any other items. Please ensure all rubbish is taken to the correct refuse points and leave Scorrier House as tidy as you found it 🌱
