FAQ’s

When is the next Brodstock Family Festival?

Brodstock 2019 takes place on Saturday 15th June. It’s always the day before Father’s Day every year!

Can I buy tickets on the gate?
Tickets sell out well in advance of the day so, unfortunately they can’t be bought on the day. We’d advise you always buy your tickets in March to avoid disappointment.

How much are tickets?
Tickets are just £10 and entry for under 12s accompanied with a paying adult
is free. 100% of the ticket money goes to good causes.

If the event is cancelled can I get my ticket money back?

In the extremely unlikely event of Brodstock being cancelled we’re unable to return what you’ll have paid for your tickets. 100% of the money will remain with the events named charities.

Are dogs allowed at Brodstock?
Guide dogs ONLY will be allowed on the festival site.

Is there disabled access/parking available?
Yes, disabled parking is available so simply show your Blue Badge on entry.
The whole site is also accessible by wheelchair and there are toilet
facilities inside the club house, accessible via our patio entrance.

Can I bring my own drinks?
I’m afraid not. Our license only allows alcohol that is served on site to
be consumed. Our safety staff will not allow any alcoholic drinks to enter
the site and will be checking at both entry points.

Is food and drink available?
You bet! We have a large bar in and outside, soft drinks included, plus a
unique Coffee cart. All the Street Food stalls are listed in the Info tab and includes
veggie options.

Is there anything else I can’t bring into the site?

Our security teams will check all bags on entry and, as you imagine, they won’t be allowing any of the usual things in (alcohol, drugs, fireworks, anything that could be used as a weapon). One thing that definitely won’t get past our stewards is GLASS and BBQs. Brodstock is held on a rugby pitch where, for the rest of the year, adults and children will be playing on. Therefore no glass (bottles, jars, drinking vessels) is permitted on site and, as the can be a fire hazard as well as potentially scorching/damaging the grass, no BBQs are allowed.

Can I bring a gazebo or shelter?
Please do, you can’t always rely on the British Summer.  Bring a picnic rug
and those folding chairs – make yourself at home! All we ask is that you
respect the pitch so strictly; no creating holes with big tent pegs, and no
camp fires or bbq’s.

What sort of music will be played?
We always try to have a varied line-up. In 2018 there was jazz, funk, operatic, indie rock and plenty of rock
classics (…there was even a bagpiper, two ukuleles and a memorable dance troupe!). All the bands are from the local area and are looking forward to playing in front of a family audience.

What sort of think can the kids do?
Our Kids Zone has a number of bouncy castles and all day access is just a fiver per child. For younger children (5 and below) there is our Forrest School area run by our friends from Hipperholme Forrest Nursery. Our Brodstock Village has numerous stalls including the infamous dunk tank, the climbing wall, facepainters and some new features this year.

Is there overnight camping?
I’m afraid not but it’s something we may add in years to come.

Where do I park if I drive?
We have plenty of off-road parking and it’s all FREE. We do ask if you’d like to make a £1 donation per car (to help us cover the costs associated with bringing the site back to normal after the festival) but it isn’t compulsory.

Can I leave my car overnight?
You can, but all vehicles are left at the owners risk. You will be able to
get access the following morning.
