What tickets do I need?

Tickets are sold Per Person + Camping Pitch 

Earlybird Tickets sold out in a record breaking 19 hours. Buy your Low Price tickets quick here for Friday – Sunday. The limited Thursday-Sunday tickets are now at the final Saver price tier and will sell out quickly.

Adults 16 yrs.+ and Children 3-15 yrs. Under 3’s are FREE and do not require a ticket. Well-behaved dogs (kept on leads and cleaned up after) are FREE and do not need a ticket. Discounted advance Family Tickets (two adults and two children) are on sale for a limited time only in the earlybird and low price brackets only.

You buy either three night (3rd-6th August – almost sold out) or two night (4th-6th August) per person tickets. 

Your Camping Pitch price is set by the length of your vehicle e.g. either less than 5m length (this would cover a VW camper van and can include a trailer tent/tent)  or more than 5m (e.g. a motorhome). Caravan Camping Pitch passes cover the vehicle towing it too. If you are arriving on foot or pedalling to us you do not need a Camping Pitch Pass. 

Camping pitch passes are only valid with the correct per person tickets. You can buy Camping Pitch passes on the gate during the weekend but they will cost more. Thursday is pre-book camping only.

We do not mark out pitches as we have 110 acres. We are proud of the generous space we offer you to camp in. You can camp next to your vehicle.

Is their Blue Badge Camping/Parking?

The terrain at Euston Park is quite hilly but the main arena and the majority of activities are on the flatter part of the site. Entrance for disabled day visitors will be sign-posted. This parking is on the lower, flatter part of the site and it’s approx. 300-400m walk to the main arena from here. We have disabled loo and shower facilities. Watch our event video here to see the site.

Blue badge holders attending for the weekend can select any of the camping sites on the day (please display your Blue Badge clearly in your windscreen) and are also welcome to camp along past the black wrought iron gates to the Hall. This area is flat and close to the main arena. This will be marked on our Site Map, coming shortly. Buy a General Camping ticket (your blue badge will mean you can choose where is best for you on arrival or head to a designated area near the main arena.)
