Tickets now on sale for this year's Smugglers Festival! 

This year we have introduced a little green incentive we are including a £5 eco bond within the adult weekend ticket price. To recoup your bond you have two options:

  1. Volunteer with the recycling team for a clear up.
  2. Take a bag of recycling home with you. Particularly important is plastic as our local recycling depot doesn't take plastic recycling from events but they will take it from domestic household collections.

You can be hedonist and forgo your opportunity to get involved, and your deposit will pay for others to tidy up.
