Magic Orchard 2015 Ticket Buyers Information
****UPDATE FOR ALL OF YOU CAMPING*****
Apologies but due to a change to the site layout we cannot allow anyone to park next to their tents.
On arrival you will be guided to a parking space in our car park and shown where the campsite is (It is a short walk).
Campervans and caravans will be guided to their pitches.
Thank you all so much for your amazing support, we are truly overwhelmed by the enthusiasm that you have shown towards this event and the fact that we have sold out weeks in advance! Big Love to all of you beautiful people x
Here is some further information in preparation for next weekend’s magic.
Now that we have become a ticket selling event, whilst being supportive, the local authority has placed a number of restrictions on our license.
Challenge 25 restrictions on the bar i.e. if you are lucky enough not to look 25 you must bring ID to the bar
No alcohol is allowed to be brought outside of the campsite and into the main area– you are welcome to drink your own supplies in the campsite
We have 6 friendly door supervisors that will be welcoming you during the evening and ensuring everyone is safe and that our license conditions are adhered to
There are no fires / BBQs allowed in the campsite due to insurance
Last orders at the Crafty Fox, Can Bars and Cocktail Bar is 11.45pm Friday & Saturday and 8.45pm on Sunday
The volume levels are being closely monitored to ensure we do not disturb our neighbours and this may result in a lower level of sound after 11pm with this in mind, we have managed our programming to gain maximum benefit from our headliners during these hours. (Music will continue to be played until 1am on Friday and Saturday and 10pm on Sunday.)
Things you need to know:
When arriving at Cowran Estate (Postcode LA12 0JW) you will be guided by a steward to the campsite and shown where to park safely (Please ensure you do not block any other vehicles and that everyone can leave safely when they need to).
If you intend to park your car next to your tent you will need to arrive on Thursday (anytime) or Friday before 12pm (lunchtime) or if on Saturday before 9am.
Outside of these hours you will be asked to park in the car park and carry your tent to the campsite (we will help as much as possible).
If you are bringing your camper van or caravan outside of these hours please let us know so we can provide you with further guidance.
If you would prefer, you are welcome to pitch your tent on Thursday, leave it and then park in the car park on your return.
Booking in and wristband collection
Feel free to pitch your tent and then come down to the event office (portakabin) where you will exchange your tickets, or proof of booking confirmation (if your tickets have not arrived), for wristbands and be given a Cowran sticker to identify that you have paid for your camping (£5 per tent or £10 campervan / caravan).
