Weyfest is more like a mini-holiday than a music festival. It is a stress-free weekend in the country, with the finest music to be had at any festival; camping, posh loos, friendly staff and plenty to occupy the kids with music-, drama- and creative arts workshops; train rides and the many attractions offered by open-air museum which is the venue itself.
You'll be able to stretch out your picnic rugs at Weyfest 2014; wander around the site to the four stages with your camping chairs. Sit and watch your favourite band or discover new artists from the eclectic mix on offer; or just find a quiet spot to watch the world go by.
Weyfest attracts new people every year - many who've not been to a festival for years for fear of mud & rude or drunken behaviour (there's none of that here!); many who've never even been to a music festival before! Most who've been to Wefest have made new friends and now return each year for a reunion! Expect Weyfest 2014 to be no different.
There is a great selection of food at Weyfest, from the in-house café and the plentiful food stalls, a wonderful fully stocked bar at pub prices, a fascinating museum, and the friendliest staff and punters you will ever encounter at a festival.
The venue itself is also a major reason for the increasing popularity. The Rural Life Centre is a working museum, littered with artifacts of bygone country life, and craft displays throughout the venue. And is there another festival in the world with a working light railway, running both steam and diesel trains around the perimeter of the venue? Because the venue is so compact, everything at Weyfest is within easy reach. No trudging for miles from the car park or campsite, no long walks between stages ... and no major journey to reach the excellent food and bars!
Get yourself down to Weyfest 2014. We're sure that, once bitten you will truly be smitten!
Disabled Access Information
Q. Are there any concessions for the disabled?
A. We assume that, whereas the disabled person might want to come to Weyfest, the carer may not and so we give the carer pass free. We do not send out carer tickets. The disabled person must buy a ticket as normal and on arrival at the ticket desk at Weyfest they must present proof of disability if asked. This must be in the form of eligibility for disabled living allowance (DLA), a disabled railcard or disabled parking badge. They will then be given a free carer pass. This is limited to festival entry only and does not include camping or campervan passes.
Q. Are there any disabled parking and disabled camping facilities?
A. For those that are not camping there is a disabled parking area adjacent to the festival entrance. On arrival please let the stewards know that you are disabled and they will direct you to the parking area. If you are camping, there is a separate disabled parking and camping area adjacent to the exit of the campsite. There are also disabled toilets in this area.
Q. How accessible is the site for the disabled?
A. Almost all the site has good disabled access including the arboretum. Disabled toilet facilities are available for the festival and disabled campers will be situated close to disabled toilets on the campstite.
