Posh Pen

The Posh Pen is a secluded drinking area where you can enjoy a glass of prosecco while listening to the live music. This year’s Posh Pen traders are The Merry Mare and the Little Gin Pot.

Sustainability Policy
This year we have enforced a no plastic bag policy, with a big ban on single use plastic bags. All traders are equipped with branded; 100% recyclable paper bags and visitors are encouraged to bring their own bags to the festival. A specialist ‘Green Team’ will also be on site looking at ways we can reduce our waste and policing the new plastic policies.

Park + Ride 
Our Park and Ride service this year is sponsored by Northern Gas Networks 

A park and ride service will be running from County Hall down to Morpeth Bus Station. Bringing you straight into the action, services running every half an hour.
