All the info and faq’s you’ll need for June 15th 2019
Brodstock 2019 takes place on Saturday 15th June. It’s always the day before Father’s Day every year!
Tickets sell out well in advance of the day so, unfortunately they can’t be bought on the day. We’d advise you to get to the rugby club on Saturday 16th March (from 10.30am) to buy your ticket and avoid disappointment.
Tickets are just £10 or free for under 12s accompanied with a paying adult. The event is completely not-for-profit so all proceeds go to good causes.
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.
Guide dogs ONLY will be allowed on the festival site.
Yes, disabled parking is available so simply show your Blue Badge on entry. The whole site is also accessible by wheelchair and there are disabled toilet facilities outside and inside the club house (accessible via our patio entrance).
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.
You bet! We have a large bar in and outside, soft drinks included, plus a
unique coffee cart and tea caddy. There’s numerous street food stalls and veggie/vegan options.
Our security teams will be checking 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). Two things that definitely won’t get past our stewards are GLASS and BBQs. Brodstock is held on sports pitches which, for the rest of the year, are played on by adults and children. Therefore no glass (bottles, jars, drinking vessels) is permitted on site to ensure no fragments or shards are left, and no BBQs are allowed as can potentially scorch/damage the grass pitches as well as being a fire hazard to tents, flags and straw bales.
Please do, you can’t always rely on the British Summer! All we ask if that gazebos aren’t place in the third closest to the stage. Bring a picnic rug and those folding chairs – make yourself at home! However, please respect the pitch by; not creating holes with big tent pegs, and no camp fires or bbq’s that can damage the grass for some time.
We always try to have a varied line-up. Previously we’ve had jazz, funk, operatic, indie rock and plenty of rock classics (…there was even a bagpiper, two ukuleles and a memorable dance troupe last year!). All the bands are from the local area and are looking forward to playing in front of a family audience. Check the MUSIC pages to find a list of who’s playing this year.
Our Kids Zone has plenty of bouncy castles and all day access is just a fiver per child. For younger children (5 and below) there is our Forest School area run by our friends from Hipperholme Forest Nursery. Our Brodstock Village has numerous stalls including the infamous dunk tank, the climbing wall, facepainters and some new features this year.
I’m afraid not but it’s something we may add in years to come. The vast majority of Brodstockers come from within a 5 mile radius so we assume they’d prefer the comfort of their own bed, rather than a foam mat or camp bed, after a day revelling at the festival.
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 but it isn’t compulsory (… it just helps us cover the costs associated with bringing the site back to normal after the festival). Please do not park on residential streets in the area and in front of our neighbours homes. Our car parks are plenty big enough and they are considerably closer to the festival site than any other option.
You can, but all vehicles are left at the owners risk. You will be able to get access the following morning.
There’s a bus stop pretty much outside our gates. The 571 from Bradford to Halifax (and back again!) flies past our doors and travels via Southowram, Brighouse, Lightcliffe, Hipperholme, Shelf and Wibsey. Several other services also come through Hipperholme crossroads which is a 10 minute walk (0.5 mile).
Set times will be available closer to the festival, we recommend you checking our social media accounts in June. On the day, make sure you pick up a free event programme to see the running order as well as other happenings.
Simply drop us a message via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We’re all volunteers and would welcome any extra help.
