Tickets & Admissions

Premium Tickets, which guarantee admission, are on sale from Wednesday 1st June, so get in early as last year Friday and Saturday tickets had sold out before the end of July. However the festival will not be all-ticket with cash admissions available every day, although queues may be possible at busy times for cash payers.

Admission Prices - A package price is charged for both premium tickets and cash admissions. This includes a commemorative glass (refundable at £2.50) and ten beer tokens (refundable at 50p each) - two tokens will buy you a third of most beers and ciders and three will buy a half pint. CAMRA members receive five further tokens on entry with a current membership card. Customers who bring their own Govt. stamped and lined glass are given five beer tokens in lieu of a commemorative glass.

Cash entry is dependent on available space in the grounds and there may be queues at peak times, particularly on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. We strongly recommend you buy premium tickets to this massively popular event, as this guarantees access.

Premium Tickets can be purchased online 24 hours a day by clicking here  (link will become active on 1st June). Alternatively they can be bought over the counter at the Nottingham Tourism Centre, Smithy Row - Opening hours: Monday to Saturday – 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, plus Sundays in July and August from 11 am to 5 pm.
