Festival of Power Tickets
Flexi-Day Ticket!

This means that you can secure and buy a day ticket if you’re not sure which day you’d like to attend just yet. This flexible ticket will admit you to any one of the three days of the event which you can decide on as late as when you wake up on the day. This gives you some flexibility to work around the weather or the in-laws’ traditional Easter roast – whether you’re looking to attend it or avoid it!

Electric Hook-ups!

Something that will make the life of any good “caravanner” or “motorhomer” that bit easier is electric hook-up for the duration of your stay. It’ll allow you to keep the beers and barbecue food chilled without the hassle of lugging around the old generator keeping it fueled up for the weekend! Full details on the Camping page.
