The nearest train stations are Billingshurst, Horsham, Guildford and Haslemere. Buses run to and from the village but are infrequent and it is advisable to come by car if you can.

How suitable is the site for buggies or wheel chairs?

There is good level access to all parts of the site. Please be aware though that parts of the field can get muddy if the weather is wet.

What disabled facilities are there at the Festival?

The Festival site is all on one level and we have arrangements for disabled parking and toilet facilities.

Can I have a BBQ?

Due to fire regulations no individuals can have a fire or barbeque on the Festival site. We offer delicious food on the day with our mouth-watering hog roast and sizzling BBQ. All payable with your tokens, please check our food area out on the day.

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Please don’t! The terms of our licence strictly prohibit alcohol being brought onto the site. Security checks will be made at the gate and all alcohol will be confiscated. We have a large selection of beers, ales, ciders, wines and non-alcoholic beverages on sale.

Can I bring glass bottles or drinking glasses?

No please don’t bring in glass bottles. Tankards are acceptable. Soft drinks are also available on the day.

Can I bring my dog to the festival?

No, we do not allow animals on site, other than guide dogs.

Can I or my kids bring a bike with us?

No, we do not allow bikes, scooters, skateboards etc at the festival for safety reasons.

Can I take photographs or videos?

You are very welcome to take photos and videos, and if they’re suitable we’d love to see them and add them to the gallery. Please send them to info@loxwoodbeerfestival.com

What footwear/clothing should I bring?

Please bring suitable clothing depending on the weather – sun protection for the daytime, warm clothes if you plan to be outside in the evening (it can be chilly in West Sussex!) and suitable footwear if it’s wet. The bar, stage and food areas are all under cover, but most of the site is open air and you will have to walk outside to the toilet!

Is there a cash machine?

Unfortunately not. Please note that we can only accept cash in return for tokens to be used to purchase food and drink – so please bring plenty with you! The nearest cash machines are at Oak Tree Stores in Ifold and the petrol garage on the A281 at Alfold. There is a post office and stores in the village of Loxwood, please pay Colin a visit to stock up on any essentials before you arrive at the festival.

How can I get my band to play at the festival?

We are always looking for new talent! Please email info@loxwoodbeerfestival.com for details of where to send a demo of your music.

Does any money go to charity?

All profits from the Festival go towards the improvement and early years education of the children at Loxwood Pre-School. The Pre-School is a registered charity and is largely dependent on fundraising to keep going. Please visit our website www.loxwoodpreschool.com

What happens if it rains?

The bar is inside a large marquee! Do bring your own gazebos and feel free to pitch them sensibly! Open sided gazebos only. Nothing fully enclosed like a tent as it obscures peoples vision across the field. Please note though that much of the site is not under cover and you will need to walk a short distance to and from your car and the toilets. The field can be muddy if it’s very wet so please bring suitable clothing.

Will there be vegetarian/vegan food available on site?

Yes, there will be veggie burgers suitable for all vegetarians.

Do mobile phones work on the festival site?

The signal can be erratic in the Loxwood area, but give it a go!

Can I bring my instrument to play anywhere?

You may find it difficult to play over the noise of the bands, but, hey give it a go!

Is there a lost property?

If you have lost anything, please email us on info@loxwoodbeerfestival.com to see if we have found it.

Nothing here answers your question?
