Will I get sent a paper ticket?

No, you will be sent an e-ticket from our ticket provider Skiddle. On arrival you will need to produce your e-ticket (via your payment receipt) at the box office to exchange for your wristband and entry to the festival. Ensure that your printed proof of purchase includes the name of the person who booked the tickets. All receipts will be cross referenced by name or scanned where bar cards are available. All ticket holders should arrive together where possible to avoid any delays on entry.

 

Will I get a wristband?  

Yes, on entry to the festival you will be issued with a securely fastened wristband. You must not remove this during the festival. Camping and weekend tickets cannot be split by sharing a wristband.

 

Do children have to pay?  

Yes. The ticket price for children is low, and many of our activities on site are now free for children.

 

Is there car parking?  

Yes, this is charged at £5 per day payable in cash on arrival or £15 for the full weekend. The car park is reserved for cars only – no camper vans etc. Cars and their contents are parked entirely at the owners own risk. Limited number available - this is because we have taken a new field for parking on site which will need a year for seed to take and be firm enough for larger vehicles. The cost of parking has been increased this year to allow these improvements to me made.

 

Is there parking for Disabled?  

Yes, this is charged in the same way as the main car park and space is limited so it is best to book this in advance. The disabled spaces are adjacent to the main festival site.

 

Is there a Drop Off and Pick Up Zone?  

Yes, this will be clearly signposted. Please note and adhere to the  system in operation.

Where is the festival?

Homegrown takes place on the grounds of Suffolk Academy in Barrow, Bury St. Edmunds. There will be directional signs place nearby to help you find your way. The address is Church Road, Church Farm, Barrow, Bury St. Edmunds, IP29 5AX. There are several business running from Suffolk Academy, so your GPS may come up with another name such as Barrow Archery, or Academy Health & Fitness. That's fine, we're all on the same site.

 

Is there an age limit at Homegrown?

No, you are welcome at Homegrown no matter how old, or young, you are!  Each paying adult can accompany no more than 4 children under the age of 15.

 

Will I need ID for age verification?  

You may be asked to provide proof of age either in the campsite or at the bars. Our bar staff follow the Over 21 rule!  Legal drinking age restrictions apply, ie. 18+

 

What facilities are there?

Permanent, clean, and volunteer manned toilets, a fully stocked bar that includes local ales and Aspall cyders, plenty of food choices that include vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free options, children and adult activities, a craft area, first aid, a toddler zone, and a variety of vendors. Showers and a separate toilet area are available for our campers.

 

Can I leave the Homegrown site and return?  

Yes, if you are wearing your wristband. remember to bring proof of your parking permit to avoid paying more than once for parking.

 

Can I take pictures at the festival?  

Yes, but professional/SLR cameras over 6 Mega Pixel are not allowed unless you have prior agreement from the organisers.  

 

Can I bring my dog to the festival?

Sorry, no dogs or other animals are permitted at the festival either in the main site or in the camp site. The only exception will be guide dogs.

 

Can I bring chairs, umbrellas and gazebos to the site?  

Strictly no gazebos in the main area or the campsite but chairs and umbrellas are permitted if used in a considerate manner. Please be aware you may be asked to move or remove them if causing an obstruction within the site or if the site becomes full.
