They have sold out of tickets but there is still plenty to enjoy so still come along, as they say on their site:
Much of our festival is open to all comers. There’s a lot to see and do even if you don’t have a ticket and parking is available for the whole day for just £2 per car, only a very short walk to the green (sorry no dogs allowed on the festival site).
You are welcome to enjoy our Club tent, where you can see up and coming acts performing each day & evening, and the Children’s festival welcomes all. Wander around our Trader’s field full of arts, crafts, clothing and music – there’s lots to see and do. Bring or buy an instrument and join in the non-stop pub sessions or join in an impromptu jam, which could occur at any time – absolutely anywhere! Dance, sing or just chill out with a drink from our bar, eat from a choice of cuisines and watch the miniature world that is Priddy on this very special weekend.
See you there! I’ll be the man with his two sons dragging him from one marquee to another!
