Camping Information

Festival camping is in the Hall’s Park Field and covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The site is set against the backdrop of Burton Agnes Hall, with panoramic views of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Camping Pitch tickets are per tent, caravan or campervan and allow you to camp on all three festival nights if you choose. All campers need to have a Festival ticket, which will be checked on entry to the Campsite. Festival tickets are purchased in advance (early bird discounted tickets are available, with limited availability, thereafter saver tickets are available, then full price tickets in the run up to the weekend.)

The Campsite will be open from 3pm on Friday until 12 noon on Monday.

To reach the campsite entrance:

  • Use What3Words fills.dividers.compacts
  • Use this Google maps link
  • Coming from the Bridlington direction on the A614 into Burton Agnes village: turn right where signposted with large yellow camping signs onto 'Back Lane'.
  • Coming from the Driffield direction on the A614 into Burton Agnes village: do not follow the brown signs to the Hall. Carry straight on passing the village pond on your right hand side. At the top of the right hand bend, take the left hand turning onto 'Back Lane', signposted with large yellow camping signs.

Please drive carefully through Burton Agnes village, and take particular care for the turning off the main road coming to the festival, and back onto the main road when leaving the festival.

Some camping rules and info:

  • Shops/food outlets

There is no camping supplies store at the Festival. However, Bridlington and Driffield towns are each 6 miles away, with plenty of shops to meet your needs. There will be great food outlets in the main Festival area.

  • Cooking and Fires

Open fires and candles are strictly forbidden for safety reasons. You may use gas or charcoal burning barbecues, but not disposable barbecues - they are an extreme fire risk. Please make sure gas canisters are not changed inside tents or vehicles.

  • Drinking water, toilets and showers

There will be a clearly marked drinking water point. The toilets in the Festival site will be available to campers and there will be additional toilets in the camping area (please use them rather than anywhere else!). Hot showers will be provided at no extra charge. (To conserve water, we can't allow paddling pools, water bombs or water balloons).

  • Facilities

There is plenty of space and - with panoramic views of the countryside and the Hall and its gardens; good toilets; free hot showers; a drinking water point; food outlets and our shop (in the Hall’s stableyard) - we hope that your camping experience is a happy and relaxing one. There are no electrical hook ups, please charge any batteries before setting off.

  • Food and drink

There will be a well-stocked bar with real ales, chilled wines, cocktails made to order, and soft drinks among other refreshments. There will be great food on the Food Lawn, including woodfired pizzas and ice creams, and a vintage tea tent with home baked treats, barista coffees and teas. 

We would be most grateful if you’re able to enjoy our bar and catering to support the Festival, any proceeds of which keep Burton Agnes Hall thriving for future generations of visitors. And yes, you may bring your own food and drink if you prefer. You are welcome to bring chairs for the lawn, too.

  • Litter. Please use the many bins provided. Don’t leave litter at the campsite.
  • Fireworks & animals

Dogs are permitted in the campsite and the grounds, and must be kept on a lead. Please do not allow your dog to foul in our grounds – there will be litter bins that you can use for dog mess. Fireworks are not permitted in the campsites or the main arena.

  • Neighbours

Everybody needs good neighbours. Please do everything you can to avoid disturbing our neighbours or the wildlife. No sound systems permitted on the campsite.

  • Cars and parking

The general campsite is close to the main area. Parking is available nearby - cars will not be permitted in the camping area. For everyone's safety we do not allow cars to unload or stop in roadways or to be parked next to tents. Cars pulling caravans/trailer tents can be parked alongside them in the caravan/campervan area.

  • Security of Cars, Tents and Property

Although we will endeavour to provide as much security as possible, campsites are always potentially vulnerable. We recommend that you don't bring any valuables with you - if it's absolutely necessary, keep them on you at all times and please do not leave valuables in your tent or vehicle. It’s a good idea to write your postcode on your camping gear. Please note that we cannot accept responsibility for any losses. If you see someone acting suspiciously or have any concerns, please do report this to a member of security or a steward as they are all there to help you and keep you safe.
