If you want to be part of the Festival spirit without committing to attending an event, then a Site Pass may be the option for you. Our Site Passes grant you access to the main Festival grounds of The Old Swan Hotel, including the bookshop and the bar.
Please note: Site passes do not give you access to any Live Event tent events – tickets for events must be booked separately. However, if you book a ticket for a Live Event Tent event on a specific day, you are automatically granted access to the site for that day, and so there is no need to purchase a site pass.
For example, if you book to see a panel event on Friday, then you do not need to book a Site Pass for Friday – your ticket to the event automatically grants you access to the site for the whole day. But if you want to meet a friend in the bar on Saturday and you don’t have a ticket for any events on Saturday, then you do need to book a Site Pass for Saturday to be allowed on site.
The cost of a Site Pass cannot be redeemed against the cost of any event tickets you choose to buy for that day, so please do consider carefully if you would like a Site Pass or an event ticket. If you need any further guidance, please do call our Box Office on 01423 562 303.
Site Passes are available to purchase for individual days or for the whole weekend | Tickets will be on sale Thursday 1 June 2023
