An important message regarding our Covid policy from The Great Professor Curly
Hello rambunctious ones! We cannot wait to welcome you into the wild gardens of Scorrier once more.
Your safety is our number one priority and as such we are going to do our best to ensure that the great estate is as safe as it can possibly be for everyone attending, so will be following the advice of the local health and safety authorities.
We will be asking you wonderful lot to acquire a negative Covid test before entering the festival so that we can all feel safe, let our hair down, dance in the woodlands and have a wonderful time just like the good old days.
There are several ways you can do this:
The current government guidance is that everyone should take a lateral flow test twice a week. We ask that all ticket holders take a test within 48hrs of attending the festival.
We also ask that each attendee 18 or over confirms their COVID status by doing one of the following and bringing this to the box office on arrival.
We believe the NHS pass is the easiest and simplest way to do this – It is free and easy to do, BUT if you do not want to download the app, we have other options in place. The main thing is that we just want everyone to show that they are Covid free on arrival to the event.
• Obtain an NHS COVID Pass via the NHS App. Passes can be obtained if one of the three conditions below is met:
• A double vaccine dose has been given
• A negative PCR or Lateral Flow Test has been taken in the last 48hrs
• A positive PCR test has been taken within the last 6 months, but you have finished isolating (confirmation of natural immunity)
Children under 18 do not need to take a test.
If you are unable to obtain a COVID Pass through the NHS App, you may substitute this with a screenshot or print-out of your negative Lateral Flow Test registration.
You must NOT attend the festival if:
• You are displaying COVID 19 symptoms (New continuous cough, fever, loss of sense of taste or smell)
• You have experienced these symptoms in the last 10 days
• You have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID 19 in the last 10 days
• You have been traced or “pinged” by Test and Trace or the NHS COVID App.
• You have received a positive COVID test result (either PCR or Lateral Flow) in the last 10 days.

We carefully handpick a selection of food stall to ensure a variety of tastes are covered. From the UK to Greece, from Italy to Thailand. You can expect exotic, traditional, and far flung flavours.
Please be aware that due to our licencing conditions (updated in 2020), persons under 18 years old are not allowed access to the festival unless accompanied by an over 21 ticket holder.

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. Booking fees are non-refundable under any circumstances as they pay for credit card processing fees, ticket agent fees and admin fees that come with processing of the tickets. You are also 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 before 30th April 2022. After this date we cannot process any changes. We cannot split tickets either, so please ensure your tickets are absolutely correct when you buy them. Many thanks
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.
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!
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.
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 or show your tickets on your phone 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 until 10pm each evening. 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 before April 30th 2022 and we will make sure that person can gain access. Requests after this date cannot be actioned.
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 or have pictures of the ticket codes 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 adult & youth 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.
