Frocester Festival... Music, Drinks, Food, Cricket, Fun!
The perfect 'Festival in a Day' – Saturday 26th August 2023
Welcome to our festival!
You may have noticed that our unique festival has changed a bit over the last few years.
This year many things will remain the same, like the same great range of beer, cider and wine, and the popular Pimms and Prosecco bars will be back again, as will our carry-out containers and face-painting!
As in recent years, we are no longer allowed to offer a branded glass tankard or wine glass, as the License issued to us by Gloucestershire County Council now prohibits their use at the festival. Ticket prices do still include a branded plastic sleever though, and we are also offering the option of a top quality branded polycarbonate tankard for just £5 each.
Please note: Now that we are only holding a 1-day festival, we will NOT be providing overnight camping facilities as part of the festival.
We will also still be offering a great range of food from local suppliers, which will be available right up to 11.30pm on Saturday evening, half an hour after the bar closes.
The music at the festival is constantly under review, and this year we have more great local covers, dance and rock bands booked, together with great accoustic music too.

Once again, we are looking forward to serving dozens of different beers and ciders from varied and diverse sources. In 2019 we also increased our range of cider, and this will continue this year too, plus we're also adding a Gin Bar in addition to the Prosecco & Pimms Bars that have proved so popular previously.
The bar will open from 11am, giving everyone an opportunity to make a relaxed start to your time at the festival, sampling the drinks of your choice and listening to some quality music too.
This year we are expecting to have a capacity crowd again, so order your tickets in good time. That said, we have reduced overall numbers and changed a few things to provide more space for everyone!
As with previous years, admission to the Frocester Festival site will be by ticket only. Tickets will be e-tickets and must be purchased online via this website in advance. No tickets will be available for sale on the day. You must provide proof of purchase to gain admission to the festival, either by printing your receipt and bringing it with you, or by showing your email receipt on your phone when you arrive. There will be no admission without proof of purchase. If you have any enquiries or wish to make changes to your order, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arriving and Leaving
The parking, drop-off and pick-up arrangements remain the same as they were in previous years, with mini buses running to Leonard Stanley, Kings Stanley, Eastington, Stonehouse and Stroud from 10pm to midnight after the festival has finished.
Once again we will have a lot of unpaid organisers who work really hard to deliver your festival and to continually improve it each year. We would also like to thank all the hard-working Frocester Cricket Club members and friends who work tirelessly over the week running up to the festival and over the weekend itself. Finally, thank you to the residents of Frocester for all the help and consideration you give us.
We hope you will find your festival as enjoyable and exciting as you always have, and if you are coming for the first time, we are sure you will enjoy one of the premier music, drinks and cricket festivals in Gloucestershire.
We look forward to welcoming you on the day. Cheers!

What if it rains?
This is England. Let's be honest, it's likely to rain!
However, we will be providing a marquee to ensure there will be sufficient cover available for everyone.
I'm in a wheel chair, what's the access like for me?
Although a lot of the site is grass, there is also a hard-standing area and disabled toilet facilities.

Yes they can. We are a family-friendly event, and welcome children of all ages. However those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Also, for those of you over the age of 18, proof of age may be requested, as the admission ticket is no proof of age!
Note: Our bar staff operate the 'CHALLENGE 18' policy, to ensure under 18s are not accidentally served alcohol.
Can I bring a tent and camp?
Unfortunately not. As we are only holding a 1-day festival this year, we will NOT be providing overnight camping facilities as part of the festival.
Are there toilets?
Yes, a number of public toilets will be provided for the festival.
What are the bar opening and closing times?
Drinks will be served from 11am-11pm.

Do I get a free glass?

If your free plastic glass is broken, please take it to the bar and, stocks permitting, you will be able to buy a replacement for £2 each.
In the event of an emergency during the festival, an air horn will sound. You must assemble on the cricket square marked on the map and await instructions.
