Visitor Car Parking is opposite The Betsey Wynne. It will be signposted clearly and stewards will be available to direct you. Once you’re parked you will need to cross the road over to the pub to gain access to the festival venue. Parking is free but we would be grateful for any charity donations. Volunteers will be present with their buckets!

Disabled visitors are able to park in the pub car park as long as a valid disabled badge is displayed.



Please note that Swanbourne Music Festival takes place outside on grass terrain. Disabled WCs are available in the pub. If you need assistance at any time please alert one of the stewards or staff.



If you're being driven to the event, or being picked up by taxi, we would recommend that you are dropped off and collected from outside Swanbourne House School - it's only a few minutes walk from the venue and will save congestion outside the pub.



Don't forget to print your e-tickets and bring them with you so the barcode can be scanned at the gate. Paper tickets will be marked or torn on entry. If you want to leave the venue at any time and return later, please make sure you get a stamp or wristband from security on the main gates.



If you are bringing children under the age of 12 with you then we'll ask you at the gates to write a contact telephone number on their paper wristband. Please keep your children in sight for the duration of the event.



Unfortunately no animals, except service dogs, will be permitted into the festival.



We will have first aiders on site in case of any medical concerns.



Whilst we are hoping for lovely weather unfortunately we can't guarantee it. Performances will take place in all weathers and no shelter is provided. If it’s raining you may want to bring an umbrella and appropriate footwear – and a large helping of great British spirit!



There is no seating at this event. If you think you might need to sit down for some of the evening then please do feel free to bring a suitable folding chair with you.



Please do not bring your own food and drink into the venue, our licence does not permit you to do so. We have a selection of food and drink available on site and a well stocked bar. If you have special dietary concerns, you are welcome to bring your own snacks with you.

For food and drink purchase we will be operating a token system. You can purchase tokens in the pub car park on your way into the event. Any un-used tokens can be donated to one of our charities at the end of the festival.

Tokens can be purchased using cash or card.

The premises licence does not allow alcohol from outside the venue to be consumed on site - so please don't bring your own alcohol.

If you look under 21 then you may be asked to provide proof of age before being served any alcoholic beverages - so bring ID along with you. We also ask that you drink responsibly please.



As stated above, food and drink can only be purchased using tokens, which you can buy using cash or card at the token stall in the pub car park.

We have a selection of local businesses and activities at the event which will only accept cash.



It will be getting dark when the event ends at around 9.30pm. Whilst there will be lighting in and around the venue, you might want to bring a torch for your walk home.
