Weather

KingsStock will take place no matter what the weather – although we are mainly praying for warm sunshine! Make sure you are well equipped with wellies and waterproofs, as well as sun screen, and something warm and cosy for the evenings.

Transport

Parking is available at KingsStock, however we’d highly recommend car sharing if you can – get on the KingsStock Facebook page and offer space in your vehicle.

When parking please do so with consideration of others, the environment, and for park traffic – other areas of the park will need access available at all times, and we must maintain access for the Emergency Services at all times.

Safety

We want all our festival goers to be safe and have fun at KingsStock, so try and look out for each other.

This is the countryside – there aren’t many flat surfaces, and there will be bugs and other wildlife – all the things that make it quaint and a bit of an adventure!

Arm yourself with all the lotions and repellents you feel necessary.

The main park is open to the public during the festival, however the general public won’t have free access to the festival areas, please make sure your activities do not infringe on the public or local residents. There are footpaths that run near the camping areas, so make sure to take good care of your valuables.

We will do all that is reasonable to make the site safe for you to have fun on, but you are responsible for your own actions, and if you bring children please make sure they are looked after at all times.

Pets

Ticket holders who bring pets to the event are subject to strict rules, failure to adhere to them will result in the pet having to leave the event area. Here are The Critter Commandments:

  1. Pets must remain on a lead/tethered at all times.
  2. Pets must not be left unattended at any time.
  3. Clean up any poop from your pet – on or off site. In fact clear up any pet poop you find for all owners sake.
  4. Make sure your pet can be clearly identified.
  5. Beware: Some parts of the site are a working farm and there are potentially traps and poison left to control vermin.
  6. There is penned and free-ranging livestock – farmers hate their stock being harassed by dogs and they will have the final say if there is an incident. Some farmers take extreme action to protect their livestock.
  7. However well your pet can obey commands it still needs to be on a lead. This is because there are an increasing number of people who fear some animals and a loose one is upsetting for them – we do not want people to experience fear at our festival.
  8. There are footpaths off the campsite which could be a good place to exercise your pet.
  9. The actions of your pet will determine the future of other pets attendance at the festival.
  10. If your pet is making a lot of noise at night please be courteous and take it for a long walk away from campers.
  11. Do not leave your pet unattended in a car.
  12. Please purchase a ticket for your pet when you buy your own.
