The Timetable

The event runs on a daily timetable which will be located at the info point. Each morning will start with meditation and body work followed by workshops and talks. The Buddhafield Café will be running set meal times through the day.

There will be 2 types of wristbands issued at the gate, for either entry without meal pass and entry with meal pass.

Meal Passes

All inclusive meal passes for Buddhafield Café are available online here. The pass will include all meals from Wednesday evening to Sunday lunchtime. Individual meals will also be available at Buddhafield Café and other outlets including, Outer Regions.

Car Passes and Live In Vehicles

We ask for a contribution of £25 per car and £35 per live in. This money goes back into the land fund to maintain and preserve the 50 acres of land owned by Buddhafield. Passes can be bought online here.

We ask:

  • That you do not bring alcohol, drugs, unauthorised sound systems or dogs onto the site.
  • That you respect other campers. There is no official "Quiet Camping" area, as we are not able to enforce this.
  • As much as possible, we want to protect the soil and watercourses on the site. Therefore, we ask that you bring cleaning products such as hand wash, shampoo, shower gel and washing up liquid that do not contain Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, Dioxane, Parabens, Propylene glycol, Diethanolamine or DEA.
