Yes well behaved dogs are allowed however they must be kept on a lead & cleaned up after. We also recommend they are used to large crowds and loud noises. We will have water bowls available at all the bars for pooches to grab a free drink from.
Is the event wheelchair accessible?
Due to the event being on a field we anticipate should the ground become wet that wheelchair access would not be possible on the site. Mobiloo do however have “all-terrain” wheelchairs available for free hire on a first come, first served basis. These can be booked by calling 0300 999 4444
Can I bring my own food or drinks into the event?
We do not allow you to bring your own drinks into the event. Bag searches will be in place at the entrance. We cannot stop you from bringing your own food to the event however the only reason the event continues to take place is due to the revenue provided by the food traders at the event so we would kindly ask that if you wish for Festival by the Sea to continue into the future that you avoid bringing food into the event and choose to purchase from the fantastic local food traders at the event instead.
Is there any cash machines at the event?
There is no cash machine on-site however all bars accept card & will provide cash back. Most food vendors will also accept card.
We’ve hung on for good news but now its becoming increasingly clear that this years festival by the sea will no longer be able to take place and we have taken the decision to postpone Festival by The Sea until 2021. Our event next year will be bigger and better than ever with it being our 10th birthday held on the weekend of 16th, 17th, 18th July 2021. One thing we can assure is our 10th Birthday lineup will be the biggest yet with us looking to roll over this years lineup and adding even more great artists!
Like most festivals in order to survive this uncertain period we ask for you to roll over your ticket to next year’s event so that we can ensure we can continue to thrive and produce the best year yet in 2021!
If however you do feel a financial strain during this time please visit the following link to request a refund. Please note refunds can take up to 7 working days to go back to your original payment method.
We appreciate the support we have had for the festival over the years and hope to see you next year with what will be out biggest and best yet!
