General Information about Banfest
Throughout the event from Friday evening to Sunday evening we will have our catering partners on site offering a variety of foods from around the world including Fish & Chips, Indian Snacks, Pizzas and more.
Any food or drinks not purchased from our catering and bar outlets cannot be consumed within the festival perimeter.
A kids entertainment area for the earlier part of the festival will be located within the secure perimeter. Adults will need to hold Banfest tickets to allow their children access to this area. Children (and adults) can enjoy face painting and other child friendly activities.
Due to our terms of our temporary licence, there is a restriction on the number of people attending the festival at any one time. Expecting the marquee to be very busy in the evening when our headlining acts are performing, full price tickets will have to be purchased for children staying on at the festival after 7pm.
Banstead Cricket Club is hosting a full fixture list of cricket over the weekend, so you also get to enjoy the cricket from our seated area at the same time.
All Banfest proceeds go towards the development of our local village Cricket Club
We have a restriction on numbers attending, so recommend that you purchase your tickets online to guarantee entry. On registration you will receive a complimentary Festival glass (either beer or gin), programme and wristband. Security will not permit access to Festival area unless you are wearing one of these wristbands.
Free entry to the festival site will be granted to carers of disabled people - 1 carer per disabled person. The disabled person must bring suitable id to confirm disability status. The disabled person and other members of the party must have tickets for entry.
No dogs are allowed on site but exceptions will be made for dogs accompanying the visually impaired.
As we are hosting a normal weekend’s cricket fixtures, we expect our car park to be full. If you are coming by car, you will need to make alternative parking arrangements.
We have completed a Covid risk assessment. As a result sanitising stations will be located on site. The wearing of masks will not be mandatory. Government guidance is that we move to an approach that enables personal risk-based judgement. People are welcome to wear masks if they feel it protects themselves and other people.
If new Covid restrictions should force the cancellation of Banfest, tickets will be refundable subject to the Government Live Events Reinsurance scheme announced in August.
