Valley Fest (Image: Ania Shrimpton) If you have children, some extra things may come in handy such as: A good three-wheeler buggy. Trollies can actually be quite hard to drag around, especially as the site is a little hilly and a bit bumpy. Biodegradable wet wipes Ear defenders Snacks and food if you wish to cook (there's plenty of great food available on site but a supply of favourite snacks is always useful). It’s a good idea to freeze food rather than pack ice blocks if you are bringing a cool bag as less to carry and a meal to eat once defrosted. Clothes – the great British weather can throw anything at you so whilst trying to pack light, it’s worth considering leaving a spare set of clothes for everyone in your car and if you don’t need them at least you’ll have something clean to drive home in. Wellies and rain gear are also worth packing and leaving in the car if you arrive and it’s sunny. What shall I leave at home? The following items may not be brought into the site through the campsite gates. There will be no receipts issued for any confiscated items, so don’t bring it if you wouldn’t want to lose it: Do not bring drugs to the festival.

By way of a guide 8 cans of beer (or cider) and half of a litre of spirits per person in your group would be acceptable. Please do remember no glass is permitted onsite, glass found during entry searches will be confiscated and not returned. Any items which may reasonably be considered for use as a weapon Hot air (Chinese) lanterns Excessive amounts of alcohol Excessive amounts of cigarettes Excessive amounts of food Portable BBQ’s of any kind Fireworks Flares Glass bottles, jars, containers – this is a working organic farm and lots of children will be running around barefoot.
