FAQ's CornShed info

How do I know my booking has been successful?

Once you have selected your tickets and made your payment via PayPal, you will be taken to the final stage of your booking which confirms if your booking has been successful or not. You will then receive an email at the email address you have provided confirming your order. This will also provide you with your order number which is unique to your booking, should you have a query on it.


Which payment methods do you accept?

All payments are made using PayPal. You do not need to already have a PayPal account as you can simply enter your card details instead.


What does my ticket cover?

A single ticket will admit 1 person into the festival arena, comprising the CornShed and the Romney Hut with connecting marquees and separate acoustic tent (which has limited capacity).


How do I get my wristband?

You will receive a wristband on entry to the site in exchange for your ticket. There will be no admittance to the festival site without a valid wristband. You will also need a wristband in order to purchase drinks at any of the on-site bars. Anyone found inside the festival arena without a wristband will be escorted off the site.

Under no circumstances can you collect wristbands on behalf of other ticket holders. Anyone under the age of 18 will be given a different wristband to those over 18.


Do I need to bring any ID with me?

The Security and Staff at the CornShed reserve the right to check ID if they think you look younger than 25 years old. If you think you do, please make sure you bring a valid photo ID. Acceptable forms of ID to prove your age are:

1) A passport

2) A photo driving license

3) A proof of age card e.g a PASS card (Proof of Age Standards Scheme)


Car Parking

The CornShed is located on a farm in North Yorkshire, away from bus routes etc. Therefore we understand people may wish to drive to the venue. We do offer a limited amount of car parking spaces which do fill up quickly so please bear this in mind when making your arrangements.


Disabled Access & Facilities

Our site does have disabled access and there are disabled portable toilets available. However please be aware that we are based on a farm therefore the ground can be uneven, stoney and sometimes muddy.



At present we do not offer camping to the general public.


Other Accommodation

There is a list of other local B and B’s and hotels HERE


What time does it all start and finish?

The festival doors open at 6.30pm on the Friday and Saturday nights and the event finishes at 1.00am on both nights.


Can I bring my own food & drink?

No, but there will be a choice of food available to buy and 3 different bars to buy soft and alcoholic drinks from, including real ales. For licensing reasons we cannot permit any alcohol to be brought into or taken out of the site; it is illegal for us to do so. Therefore we will be conducting searches at the gate.


Are dogs allowed?

Sorry but no, only guide dogs.


It’s extremely bad weather and hasn’t stopped raining - will the festival still go ahead? If it's cancelled will I get a refund?

The British weather is incredibly unpredictable, as we all know! Fortunately the event site is mostly under cover. The only reason we would call off the event would be for crowd safety reasons – usually associated with extreme weather. Of course, if the unexpected does happen and we cancel, then refunds will be issued.


What do I wear / do I need to bring anything?

The event’s site is mostly under cover/indoors. However please be aware that we are based on a farm and as such, part of the arena is outdoors with uneven stone ground and grass, including the area to the portable toilets, so please dress appropriately.

There are a limited number of chairs and tables in each shed/tent, on a first come first served basis. There are also a few stalls, merchandise etc.

There is no need to bring anything with you other than a big smiley face!
