Code of Conduct


Only ticket holders will be admitted to AEFES.

Please wear your AEFES wristbands and display your Vehicle Pass which will be issued on arrival. This allows us to check only people who have bought tickets and part of the community are on site. This helps ensure your safety and the safety of children.

AEFES is located in a rural field and so care should be taken as the ground may be slippery and there are ditches, slopes and tripping hazards (eg tree roots). Please take extra care during wet weather as the field and paths may be slippery to both pedestrians and vehicles.

The following items are not allowed on site for legal and safety reasons: illegal drugs, firearms, laser devices, fireworks, nitrous oxide canisters, airborne lanterns, drones or anything else that could reasonably be classed as dangerous.

It is not permitted to carry a knife on site without good reason.  Knives should be kept at tent areas unless specifically approved by AEFES.  If a knife is seen outside tent areas it will be removed.

Entering people's private camping space without their consent is not permitted. Anyone caught doing this will be asked to leave.

There is a 5 mph speed limit on site. Once you have set up please move your vehicles into vehicles lanes (unless they will remain stationary throughout the festival). Please drive slowly at all times and only move cars when necessary e.g. for shopping trips.

Small camp fires and barbecues are fine but be extra vigilant near tents and do not leave fires unattended. The cutting or damaging of trees or other property is not allowed.

Alcohol is allowed on site but only for personal consumption.

Do not smoke in the Marquees.

No alcohol sales will be allowed.

11 pm is quiet time. All music and noise must be stopped before 11 pm (this is a condition of the Campsite).

Parents are responsible for the supervision and welfare of their children at all times. Parents should be aware there is a pond on the site and take precautions accordingly.

No child under the age of 18 may attend the festival without either a parent/guardian or a named adult who has agreed to act in loco parentis. The named adult must be over 21 unless otherwise arranged by the committee in advance.

Your personal belongings are your own responsibility and AEFES cannot accept liability for any loss, theft or damage to your property.

Please respect the site owners and do not enter private areas of the site outside the AEFES field.

Pets are welcome but your pet is your responsibility at all times.

Please keep dogs on a lead (even if your dog is well behaved - not everyone is comfortable with a dog running up to them) and pick up any dog mess and dispose of it responsibly.

There are a number of ropes swings around the site and in adjacent fields.  These do not belong to AEFES and might be unsafe so please take care and supervise children.

Please ensure all rubbish is taken home or placed in the skip at the entrance to the field.

Everyone must leave the site by 12 Noon on the 28th, this is a condition of hiring the site.

Ticket holders consent to filming, sound recording and photography as participants in the event. Films and recordings of the event and its participants may appear publicly and be distributed and published within the public domain.

AEFES has the right to alter or vary the programme, without notice, due to events or circumstances beyond its control, without being obliged to refund monies or exchange tickets.
