Due to the ever increasing popularity of Drakefest this year we have decided to fence off the event and have a small charge for admission on Sat and Sun , the admission money collected will go straight to the charities, we are hopping having security will make the festival a safer and more pleasurable experience for all who come along.
Adult £3.00 / Day Children 14 – 17 £3.00 / Day
£5.00 / Weekend £5.00 / Weekend
Anyone looking under the age of 18 will be asked for proof before purchasing wristbands 14 – 17 will have U18 wristbands to help to stop any underage drinking once on site wristbands will count as proof of age .
Children under 14 will be exempt from admission fees but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Tickets are available in advance from the bar at The Admiral Drake , and wristbands will be available to collect from Tues 26th .
Wristbands will be available on Sat and Sun at the main gate , but to reduce queuing please try and purchase advanced tickets then you can walk straight in.
