It will be 🙂 For those who don’t want to camp for the weekend there are day tickets(£5 on the gate payable on the day does not include camping) which helps towards the cost of running the event. This is just for the Saturday and parking will be first come first served but would help if you park in Staveley and rode up.Posted 2 months ago
