Frequently Asked Questions

On this page, you’ll find the answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions about our festival.

If you can’t find the information you’re looking for, please feel free to get in touch.

Covid-19

You can read about the festival’s plans for Covid-19 here.

Tickets

Are there limits on the number of children’s tickets?

There is no limit to the number of children who may come to the festival; however, as we are only a small, volunteer-run event, there is a limit to the number of discounted tickets that we can afford to put on sale.

The money we make from ticket sales has to cover the cost of staging the festival. While we do try our best to make as many reduced-price tickets available for children as possible, we can’t afford to sell too many without putting up the price of everyone else’s ticket, or risk losing too much money.

We’re reviewing this situation year-on-year, and our hope is to reach a scenario where there is no limit to the number of reduced-price tickets we can put on sale.

We have sold out of children’s tickets in previous years, and would strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Are tickets refundable?

Tickets to Beyond The Woods are non-refundable, except in the event of the festival’s cancellation or if you have tested positive for Covid-19 within two weeks of the event taking place. We are looking into opening up an official resale channel for people who can no longer use their tickets in the near future.

Why are booking fees not refundable?

When you buy your ticket to Beyond The Woods, the booking fee is paid to our ticketing partner Gigantic, rather than Beyond The Woods. We are only in a position to issue a refund for the money we have received – the face-value ticket price.

You can find out more about Gigantic’s booking fee, and what it’s used for, here.

How much will tickets cost?

£40 early bird tickets are now sold out. Our remaining weekend tickets are priced between £55 and £70.

I’m bringing a child aged under 5. Will they need a ticket?

While under 5s may attend the festival for free, we do ask that you still reserve a free under-5s’ ticket for your child. This is because there is a legal limit to the number of people who may attend the festival.

Unfortunately we will not be able to admit anyone, of any age, who does not have a ticket for the festival.

Will I need to be accompanied by an adult?

If you’re aged 16 or over, you do not need to be accompanied by an adult to come to Beyond The Woods; however, 16 & 17-year-olds will need permission from their parent or guardian to attend.

We do require that children aged fifteen or younger are accompanied by a responsible adult (18+) at all times.

Camping

For more information on camping, take a look at our camping pages.

Is The Glade/The Glamping Hideaway suitable for people with special access requirements?

While The Campsite is mere seconds’ walk from the arena, our premium campsites are a little bit further away.

The Glamping Hideaway is approximately 5 minutes’ walk from the arena, and The Glade is approximately 10 minutes’ walk away. Although neither walk is particularly challenging, we do recognise that these could present a problem for festival-goers with access requirements, particularly in wet weather.

If you would like to camp in these areas, but have concerns about their accessibility, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Can I bring my campervan/caravan/trailer tent?

You’re very welcome to bring your campervan, caravan or trailer tent; however, as space in our vehicle camping site is strictly limited, you will need to book a space.

We kindly ask that you don’t bring your van unless you have booked a pitch in advance, as we will not be able to accommodate you.

Can I park my car in the campsite?

You can park your car next to your tent or live-in vehicle if you have booked a spot in The Glade.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate vehicles of any kind in any other campsites.

Is camping included in the cost of my ticket?

Weekend ticket holders may camp in The Campsite free of charge. If you wish to camp in The Glamping Hideaway or The Glade, or you wish to bring a live-in vehicle such as a campervan, you will need to purchase an additional permit to access these areas.

Will there be showers in the campsite?

There will be showers in both The Glamping Hideaway and The Glade. We do not currently plan to install showers in The Campsite.

Please note that, depending on the regulations surrounding Covid-19 at the time of the festival, it may be necessary for us to close the showers on health and safety grounds.

Everything Else

Is there a charge to use the car park at Beyond The Woods?

Parking in our main car park is free of charge.

Are pets permitted at Beyond The Woods?

Sadly, with the exception of assistance animals, pets are not permitted on the Beyond The Woods site.

Can I bring my own food/drink to Beyond The Woods?

You are very welcome to bring your own food and drink to the festival; however, please note that drinks may not be taken into the arena.

We appreciate that this isn’t the most convenient arrangement for everyone, but we’re hugely reliant on bar sales to help cover the cost of putting on the festival. Plus, at £3.50 a pint, we think our prices are pretty reasonable 🙂

How/when can I apply to trade at Beyond The Woods?

If you are a non-food vendor, please email grace@beyondthewoods.co.uk with details of your proposal.

If you are a food vendor, please contact leila@beyondthewoods.co.uk

Is there a secret bar at Beyond The Woods?

Couldn’t possibly comment.

What help is available for disabled attendees?

We’d like for anybody to be able to attend Beyond The Woods, and so if you have any particular requirements please contact us.

Free carer’s tickets are available for disabled attendees. Again, please contact us for further information.

What is the festival’s policy on glass?

Glass bottles/containers are strictly prohibited on the Beyond The Woods site.

Throughout the rest of the year our site is home to a herd of deer, and any breakages could potentially be fatal. For that reason, we kindly ask that you decant your drinks into an alternative container before setting off for Beyond The Woods.

Can I apply to perform at the festival?

We are not currently accepting applications to perform at Beyond The Woods. If you are a local artist, and are interested in playing the event, we’d encourage you to send your music to BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire.

I am a member of the press, can I cover the festival?

All press enquiries should be directed to rebecca@sonicpr.co.uk
