As always there will be awesome live music, family friendly vibes, laughter, smiles, chilled days, magic nights, tomfoolery and togetherness...

Main Stage - Goodtimes Stage, the open air and open minded heart of the festival powered by the mighty Dende Sound System!

Second Stage - Full Circle, a welcoming timber framed geodome for more intimate performances, jump up evenings and maximum chilling during the day...

>>> FOOD is locally produced with great value portions to keep you partying long into the night.

>>> DRINK from the brand new SCALLYWAG'INN - good value locally sourced beers, ciders and spirits.

>>> FIRE PIT burning long into the night.

>>> WALKABOUT PERFORMANCES from the weird to the wonderful.

>>> FIRE SHOW to blow your mind

>>> HEALING AREA to recharge the soul


*TICKETS ON SALE SOON* As soon as we've finalised site and licensing details the tickets will go on sale so watch this space!

>>> SITE ETHICS. We're again investing in a number of site improvements to make your stay in the park comfortable, and to lower our overall environmental impact. We're planning to bring back our chemical free COMPOST TOILETS, RECYCLING POINTS and to only use COMPOSTABLE PLATES AND HOT DRINKS CUPS, WOODEN CUTLERY and REUSABLE ECO DRINKS GLASSES. In addition to this, we are recruiting double the amount of stewards, recycling and site crew so hopefully everything will run smoother than ever. Follow the links at the end of this info if you want to get involved. We can’t wait!

>>> TRANSPORT. The site has great transport links from Brighton and London, so we urge you to help us reduce the environmental impact of the festival by using public transport wherever possible.

>>> PLEASE NO OPEN FIRES or DISPOSABLE BBQs ANYWHERE ONSITE. We are blessed to be holding our event on a truly lovely piece of land and we trust that you will treat it with the respect it deserves. The scallywag party will be billed for any damage caused, including scorches and burns to the grass so we really appreciate your help leaving the site as you found it. There will be a great communal fire pit to warm yourselves by. Free standing BBQs are allowed for cooking on as long as they are off the grass and the ashes disposed of in the landfill bin once fully cooled.

>>> PLEASE DON'T BRING GLASS, DOGS or SOUND SYSTEMS ON SITE. Our license is dependent on a strict noise management plan, though acoustic jams will run late. But please NO DEMBES, DRUMS, PERCUSSION or BASS after midnight. Thank you in advance for being respectful of this.

>>> OUR SITE is a very special and beautiful space and the festival we create is a welcoming and safe place for everyone including families and children. For your safety, a security team will be present onsite. We trust you understand what is cool and what is not, and ANY ANTISOCIAL AND/OR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. In any instance of this trust being broken, any inappropriate behaviour will be dealt with nicely but firmly and swiftly. Thank you for keeping our previous 3 festivals so amazing and such very safe spaces to enjoy for all. We really appreciate your help in making 2023's event equally brilliant.

>>>PHOTOGRAPHY. Official photographers and film crews will be onsite and by attending the event, you give permission for photographic material to be used for promotional purposes. If you do not wish images of yourself or anyone in your family to be captured, please make it clear to the photographers as they approach.

>>>LAKES. Our site may have a lake. There will be adequate safety procedures in place to minimise the water risk. We ask that people bringing children to the festival are especially vigilant; just as they would be in a public park with an unguarded body of water. The lakes look pretty and especially inviting on a hot day but unfortunately they are filled by the run off from agricultural land and are not safe to swim in. We kindly ask, for your safety and the safety of those around you, that you DO NOT enter the water under any circumstances. Anyone found entering the lake does so entirely at their own risk and may be ejected from the site for doing so. The Scallywag Party will not be held responsible for any personal injury caused by not following these very clear instructions.

TRADERS, FIRST AIDERS, STEWARDS, SITE BUILDERS, LITTER PICKERS, CATERING CREW, WALKABOUTS, KIDS WORKSHOPPERS, DECOR TEAM or something else - If you have anything to offer our extraordinary little shindig then we have voluntary positions available and we'd love to hear from you.
