All You Need to Know Before You Go
Whether you’ve already purchased your ticket or still undecided, you may have several questions about what to bring and what to expect – so here’s our essential ‘know before you go’ checklist, so you can make the most out of your visit.
What are the opening times?
11.30am – 9pm both days.
Will there be vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options?
Yes, most vendors are offering options for the above and other dietary requirements. Vendors are really friendly and will be open to chat through your options.
Can I buy tickets on the gate?
Tickets will be available on the gate but for best value and availability we recommend purchasing before the event.
Applications regarding accessibility requirements at Eat in the Park are now open. EITP is committed to making everyone’s experience an enjoyable one with ease of access throughout the festival.
Please do consider that EITP is an outdoor event with grass fields and grounds with gradients/uneven surfaces, whilst a great effort has been made to provide facilities to accommodate for this there will inevitably be some areas that are hard to navigate.
You can apply for a PA/Carer ticket. More details will follow in regards to the 2024 events.
Shall I bring cash or card?
Bring both with you as most vendors will be accepting both. Please note there are no ATMs on the sites.
You don’t need to worry, there will be banks of toilets (added to the site for the event) in various locations around the site (see map below), with accessible/disabled toilets and also baby changing facilities.
