FAQs: The Big Feastival
The Big Feastival kick starts from 25 August. Here are a few things you might want to know before going to the festival grounds.
1. WHAT’S THE BIG FEASTIVAL ALL ABOUT?
The Big Feastival is a summer festival for all the family, combining top-class food with live music from your favourite bands on Alex James’ Farm in Kingham.
2. WHEN AND WHERE?
Friday 25th August, Saturday 26th August and Sunday 27th August 2017 on Alex James’ Farm in Kingham, The Cotswolds, OX7 6UJ.
3. IS THERE OVERNIGHT CAMPING? WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO CAMP?
Yes, there is full weekend camping and we will announce a range of ‘glamping’ bolt-on options. Campervan spaces are available but are limited in number. There are also a number of lovely hotels, B&B’s and farmhouses nearby, and public buses and taxis to get you to and from the site.
4. CAN I BRING A PICNIC?
Campers are welcome to bring food and drink to the Campsite. A wide selection of food and drink will be available for purchase in the Main Arena, where festival-goers will not be permitted to bring their own items for consumption.
5. CAN I BOOK A SEAT IN THE BIG KITCHEN?
The UK’s top chefs will be cooking up a storm in The Big Kitchen and it’s going to be popular. To be as fair as possible, seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so you won’t be able to book a place beforehand. It is recommended planning your day in advance and getting to your chosen sessions early to get a good spot!
6. CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Sorry, the festival ground is not open for pets as it gets messy and chaotic. Guide and assistance dogs are, of course, welcome.
7. IS THIS A CHILD-FRIENDLY FESTIVAL?
The Big Feastival is for everyone, big and small. There’ll be plenty of hands-on activities for both big and little ones, with an under 5s area provided by Nipperbout for mums and dads of little ones.
Re-entry to the Event is not permitted, with the exception of parents/guardians accompanying children under the age of 16. After spending the day with the family at The Big Feastival, you can drop the kids home with the babysitter and come back to party!
Single use re-entry passes will only be issued on site to parents/guardians who are in possession of either an adult ticket or a child ticket and this pass allows for re-entry to the event with or without your child. The reason for this exception is because The Big Feastival is a family-friendly event and we want to be flexible to the needs of parents/guardians. Adults not accompanying children to the event will not be allowed re-entry.
8. IS THE SITE WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE?
The site is generally suitable for wheelchairs. Please be aware that The Big Feastival is an outdoor event in fields that could pose problems for mobility (particularly in wet weather). Click here for more information.
9. WILL THERE BE FOOD FOR VEGETARIANS/VEGANS?
There will be a wide variety of food available and we aim to cater for everyone. Check out the menu on our Street Food page to get an idea of Gluten-Free and Veggie options.
10. I HAVE A NUT/DAIRY/SEAFOOD ALLERGY (I.E. SERIOUS ALLERGY), CAN I STILL COME TO THE FEASTIVAL?
Whilst participating restaurants at The Big Feastival will make every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause the most common allergic reactions, there is always a risk of cross-contamination and those with allergies should be mindful of this. Please check with food traders before eating and they will be able to advise.
11. ARE THERE CASH POINTS ON-SITE?
Yes, there are. There will be a group of cash machines within the festival site so you will not need to bring large quantities of cash with you for the weekend.
12. WILL THERE BE SHOWER FACILITIES IN THE CAMPSITE?
Yes, there is a shower area in the main family Campsite which all campers are able to use.
