FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Busses

The main road is on the bus route no. 2 from Derby/ Swadlincote. We’ll have flags next to the road to help you find us.

It's about a 20minute walk from the centre of either Ticknal / Melbourne

The postcode for finding it is DE73 8DH. We are off the main road (B587) down a short farm track (so go slow). There is a grass area for parking but no hard standing. So if the weather is wet the ground could be very soft. There is a turning circle where taxi's could drop off and a space for 3 cars outside our field for taxis to wait to collect. (no stoping and waiting at the top of the track)

We have 3 disabled parking spaces. If you have any accessibility issues please contact us beforehand.

We’re not insured for customer vehicles so parking is at your own risk. There is a very short walk of a couple of minutes to the camping area, we have wheelbarrows to move your stuff or you can bring your own trolley. There's sure to be helpers if you aren't able to get your stuff over to the camping area. Please drive very slowly down the track on while on site and park with respect to other festival goers.

What can I bring into the event?

Bring cash and cards.

Do not bring dogs/pets (unless it's an assistance dog) as we are growing food and kids run around - we like it to be dog poop free area!

If you're camping bring your tent (goes without saying)

It goes without saying that we will expect festival goers to be respectful to the site, the earth and the other festival crowd. No drugs, no flares to be brought (not the 60’s kind they’re fine) No excessive noise after 11pm (licence rules).

Bring plenty of water (preferably in a reuseable bottle) with you as we are off grid and will have water available but it'd help us a lot if you bring plenty with you. We’d love to guarantee Brazilian weather so be prepared with suntan cream, hats, sunglasses and clothes to cover up with. On the other hand if it’s wet please bring suitable clothing and foot ware – hopefully we’ll all be in our flip flops like we’re on Ipanema beach, but hey a jumper doesn't go a miss in the evening.

We will have food but if you've got little ones probably best to bring something for them, they might not be used to Brazilian food!

We have a bar so no need to bring any booze with you. We will also have a stall selling lovely coffee, tea and amazing hot chocolate. (oh and chocolate for sale)

We do have some long grass which can bring on hay fever so bring your medicine.

We are trying to be as super green as we can so we won't be selling bottled water, and we hope everyone will take their own rubbish home, as it's a pain to clean up after everyone.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

contact us at admin@whistlewoodcommon.org

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

we'll have a list but brining this if you can will help us a lot.

We have 2 lovely composting toilets We are so green!
