    Tickets for the camping from noon Thursday 14th until 10am monday 18th on sale today. £35 per person not per vehicle. Quite a few of us went this year and had a brilliant time, the sun gods were kind and the music was great, company not bad either. We are definitely going again, just hope Jez and Lins Yorkshire bash does not clash.

    All of the events are free - they are paid for with the camping fees.

    @Ambilkate the entertainment is in the streets, on the riverbank, in the pubs and all at the same time ... everything is free and we all dance in the streets and by the river .... I don't go with the funsters but if the weather is good it is one of my favourite weekends ever ....... The entertainment this year was absolutely BRILLIANT... Thousands of people, all different ages, pubs open all day and night ....and not one policeman or spot of bother that I saw. :)

    We have been for the last 3 years in a row and would recommend it to anyone who likes live music and a great atmosphere. However in 2016 we thought we would make a bit of a change and go to the Sunshine Festival instead that is held on the same camping ground. Good luck to all the Funsters attending either event,

    Last year it was a case of turn up and park but it is a huge field so it wouldn't be difficult to decide on a location and park several vans together.

    This would probably mean that you would be at the back of the field as the spots nearest the bridge get filled up first.
