Absolutely – if you are bringing a campervan you will need to grab a campervan pass along with your tickets.

The maximum allotted space for your vehicle is 7m x 5m. You will only be allocated this size space if your vehicle requires it due to space limitations in the field.

Once you have parked your vehicle you will not be able to exit the site and re-enter excluding in the event of an emergency. Should an emergency occur a steward and the Health & Safety or Site Manager should be informed and a banksman will help guide your vehicle to a safe exit. Otherwise, once your vehicle has left the site it cannot re-enter.

Tents cannot be set up in the campervan and family live-in field and campervans cannot be located in the general campsite. The only exception is small tents for very young children, in the campervan field. In all other cases you will be asked to take down your tent.

A trailer tent would be considered a live in vehicle.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the farm but please remember COVID-19 is still very much around and we don’t want to merrily dance off into the sunset only to discover we’ve bought a stonking case of COVID tongue with us on the journey.

As restrictions lift, we respect people’s personal judgement to manage their own risk, but we also have to consider the more vulnerable amongst us and our artists and crew who will lose much needed employment if they have to isolate for ten days.  That being the case we want to make everyone attending Into The Valley aware of the following…

Just normal camping or live in vehicles for this one.

How are we keeping Into The Valley clean and green?

Please seperate your rubbish in the bins on site to enable us to recycle as much as possible. To protect our crew amidst COVID-19 please pick up all your rubbish around your tent. Extra bin bags are available from our info office. We encourage everyone to bring their own reuseable water bottle and use biodegradable wet wipes and glitter alternatives. Please leave plastic straws at home and consider the animals on the farm – no flares, or lanterns, only use campfires that are lifted off the ground, and please don’t pee in the hedges!  All traders will be using biodegradable serve ware and we have a £1 reuseable cup scheme operating for this event.
