What happens when you arrive at the Festival depends on whether you have an advance ticket or are paying cash on the door....
You have bought your ticket online
This is our recommended, and easiest way to get your ticket. This year we have partnered with ticketscript to provide our e-ticketing system.
Make sure you print your ticket at home and bring it with you. Your ticket will be checked and you will be given your initial strike card. You then need to choose a pint or half-pint glass, pick up a programme and it's off to the bar to enjoy some of the 170+ beers and 100+ ciders and perries on offer.
Each person must buy and print a ticket for each session they are attending.
Where possible please print your ticket. Although it is possible to scan a mobile phone it does take longer.
You have bought your ticket from Worcester Live box office at Huntingdon Hall
Hand in your tickets (one for each person) and you will be given your initial strike card. Then you just need to choose a pint or half-pint glass, pick up a programme and it's off to the bar to enjoy some of the 170+ beers and 100+ ciders and perries on offer.
You have a complimentary ticket
Turn up at the festival site with your ticket (one ticket per person). Hand in your ticket, choose a glass - pint or half-pint - and pick up a programme. You must then head for the extra cards desk inside the marquee to buy some strike cards. Don't forget to do this because the bar does not accept cash.
You are paying cash on the door
Please be aware that we may sell out. To ensure entry please buy your ticket in advance, even if that is just before you leave your house. If we have tickets left they will be available in our e-ticket store. So if possible we recommend you buy an advance ticket.
Friday is strictly ticket only.
Having paid you just need to choose a glass - pint or half-pint - pick up a programme and head to the bar. Drivers and other non-drinkers must still pay for entry, however they can have their strike card refunded.
