This service will run at all times during the day subject to availability. Please be patient in busy periods. The phone number will be displayed at the train station and the main gates.

Children under the age of 10 have free entry to the festival. Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult and supervised throughout. All under 10’s will be wrist-banded and a contact number for their guardian/parent will be written on in case they get lost.

Disability Access
Conisbrough Music Fest aims to provide access to all entertainment on site. Events within the Ivanhoe Centre building have disability access. It should be noted that the main concert areas are located on a green field site – we will always endeavour to provide assistance where necessary.
Parking spaces for blue badge holders are available in the Stone Castle Doctors Surgery car park which is across the road from the main festival site.
The Ivanhoe Centre has disability friendly toilets.

Dogs & Other Pets
We appreciate that the majority of dog owners are responsible, but the festival is required to have rules in place to cover all circumstances. Therefore, dogs are allowed on site within the following rules:
• They must be kept on leads at all times.
• Owners must clear up after them.
• If your dog is liable to bark or is nervous around children, crowds or loud noise, please do not bring them to the festival for the sake of other festival goers and the animals themselves.
• Dogs are not allowed inside any festival venue (e.g. marquees, bars, Ivanhoe Centre, etc.)
• Assistance Dogs are permitted in all festival areas.
• They must not be left in cars – this is for their own health and well-being. If this happens, the festival may take action if there are concerns about the welfare of an animal.
• The festival management reserves the right to insist on the removal of a dog from the festival site if there are concerns regarding its behaviour.

No glass to be brought onto or used on the festival site.

Gazebo’s, Tents and Marquees
No personal gazebo’s, tents or marquees will be allowed on site this year. Due to the expected increase in attendance figures we cannot accommodate them as the space will be needed.
