Take a scroll to find some of the frequently asked questions by our Roosters.
If there is something you’re still unsure on, please feel free to email us at:
Keeping You Safe
All attendees to Red Rooster, adults and kids that are 12 years old and over (kids under 12 do not need to take a test), will need to show proof of a negative lateral flow test when you arrive, taken no more than 36 hours before you join us.
The NHS test at home kits have been freely available across the country for a number of months, available from most pharmacies, and can be ordered online here: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
We are not looking to see your NHS Covid pass, it’s the physical test we’re after. This is the small plastic stick that comes with the test kit and shows your result. As a positive test can be recorded as negative on the app, we feel our method is safer for all, and will also help speed things up at the gate, to get you enjoying yourself as soon as possible.
What can I bring into the festival?
BBQ’s and campfires
BBQ’s are not permitted onsite. We have some fantastic food on offer and you’re not gonna’ not try it!
You’re not allowed to start your own campfire, but we have provided lots of them around the festival for you. You can bring as much cold food as you wish.
Bringing your own musical instruments such as banjos, fiddles and guitars are always welcome and encouraged, for some great camp fire action. We are full of musicians.
Can I bring alcohol?
We have a revolutionary new alcohol policy! We have always had a limited alcohol policy in place (1 bottle of wine or 6 cans of beer). However, we’ve listened carefully to your comments over the last year and many of you have requested to bring your own unlimited alcohol into the stage areas.
For any small festival such as ours, the bar sales are really important for the future of the festival and for creating new and exciting activities for everyone to enjoy. So, we have decided to work with your comments and suggestions by putting in place a “CORKAGE FEE”. We now have a “MOONSHINE” wristband to add to your tickets order, which will enable you to bring your own booze into the festival, without us having to limit your experience.
We will still have our amazing array of bars, drinks and cocktails on offer, but if you’d like to bring your own tipple too, then each adult will need to be armed with your “MOONSHINE” wristband. For those that already have festival tickets or if you want to add to a new order, you can simply head HERE.
Our strict no glass policy is still in place, for your safety and particularly with so many little ones rolling about, but you can decant your drinks into other containers of course.
Dogs are permitted onsite, but only if you have already purchased a dog ticket - we are afraid to say these have been sold out for some time. We have to limit the number of dogs (unfortunately) so if you don't already have a dog ticket, we're afraid it's not possible to bring your dog. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. Please look after your dog in the campsite and clean any mess.
Kids Tickets are for those 12 years and under. As we are such a cheap adult festival ticket, we're afraid we don't do teen tickets.
Kids receive a paper wristband on entry and you should write an adult's phone number on the wristband should we need to contact you.
When can i arrive?
Campsites to the festival are open from 9am, to help bring any traffic off the road and give you the time to settle in. The gates close for entry at 8pm - you can leave at any time you wish of course, but when arriving you need to arrive by 8pm.
Toilets and showers
We have ample numbers of toilets in the main festival arena and campsites. Showers are available in the campsite and a few quid per shower, in excellent and clean shower units
Do you have disabled toilets?
Yes of course. The Red Rooster site is also very accessible, has very strong ground even when a bit wet, plus it’s nice and flat. Red Rooster has a dedicated accessible camping area, which also has an accesible shower. We offer a free carer ticket to those that need one - Simply book your festival tickets, then email firstname.lastname@example.org with your booking confirmation and we can add a carer ticket to your order manually.
Can I drive into the campsite?
Camping and parking are separate but they are extremely close to each other - Between 100 and 200 metres.
