It is free to sign up for and attend, however there is a small charge for tickets for the prize draw, and Denbies do charge for food and drink on the day. However we do usually manage to obtain a discount code for attendees to reduce the cost for you. Everything else on the day is free.
- Does the event run for just the one day a year?
Yes and No.. the event itself is a one day event, however it has things going on through the entire year ranging from news updates, discounts, info about the previous and upcoming events, new features, even a Christmas competition that runs every Christmas.
It is worth keeping an eye on our website and forum threads through the year.
As with everything all this is free, so it is genuinely well worth keeping in touch with the event right through the year :-)

- What disabled access does the event have?
The event starting point has good access for disabled attendees, however our main venue, whilst it does have good disabled access for the buildings and services, may represent problems because the event itself is sited in a large grassed area. The grassed area is generally level and you can attain wheelchair access in and out but this does depend on the weather. If anyone is attending and would like to discuss disabled access/facilities please drop us a line using the Contact Us page.
