I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the point?
– Alexei Sayle
WHAT ARE THE KEY THINGS TO BRING?
Please ensure you have a printed version or screenshot your ticket (signal is terrible on-site so don’t trust that you’ll have internet). If you have lost your ticket, you can find a copy by logging into the website and going to Info > My Tickets.
Tickets will be scanned upon arrival. You can still buy tickets via the website and a limited number of on the door tickets will be made available.
If you’re camping remember to bring a tent, sleeping bag and warm clothing. You are also more than welcome to bring food for the campsite. (No BBQ’s, camping stoves or fires allowed)
I CAN'T FIND MY TICKET. WHAT DO I DO?
No problem! If you log in to the website and go to ‘Tickets > My Account’ there should be your ticket bar code that you can use to get in at the front door.
TAKE A SCREENSHOT ON YOUR PHONE! Reception is a bit ‘iffy’ on-site, so just to be safe (or you can print…..but we prefer paperless)
HOW TO FIND US?
We’re based at SG14 3RR or look for HogSozzle on Google
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO WEAR?
We have a fully packed schedule for you to enjoy throughout the day and night, remember to bring warm clothes for late night partying and blankets to wrap up in!
Keep an eye out for an email about the weather before you leave, so you know whether to bring sun cream or wellies… or both! Waterproofs are always advisable and groundsheets could be useful for sitting down if the ground is damp.
If you’d like to get involved with the BiG PiG Paint Fight, ensure you bring goggles and white clothes or overalls that you don’t mind getting colourful!
Also get rummaging in your fancy dress box…this year’s theme will be announced in the Spring!
CAN I BRING MY OWN ALCOHOL?
You are more than welcome to bring your own booze for the campsite on one occasion only. There is a strict no glass and spirits policy. So cans and plastic bottles only please! You will not be allowed to bring your own booze inside the main arena.

7L (16 cans) cans of cider, beer or similar strength drink

CAN I BUY FOOD AND DRINKS ON-SITE?

IS THERE A CASH POINT ON-SITE?

WHAT DOES THE PAINT FIGHT INVOLVE AND WHAT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?
With the return of the legendary HogSozzle paint fight it is important that EVERYBODY who wants to take part brings a white outfit. The colours are not dangerous but may stain your clothes. To protect your eyes and lungs you can wear something to protect your eyes or cover your mouth, with a t-shirt for example. Please read below for full details.
This year’s paint fight is going to be bigger, brighter, and better than ever before and you don’t want to miss out. Take a look at the video to check out the multi-coloured carnage of last year.
NB THIS YEARS PAINT FIGHT CONTAINS WATER (WEATHER DEPENDENT) SO GET READY TO GET WET!
