Our annual Jocktoberfest is back this September, with another fun and music-filled weekend. Get your dancing shoes at the ready and we’ll guarantee delicious, organic craft beer, tasty woodfired pizza and plenty of laughs!

When? Friday 7th & Saturday 8th of September 2018

For those of you who have been before, you’ll be no stranger to our love of a theme. We’re going back in time for 2018; in fact, a whole one million years BC (Before Craft, of course). Over the years we’ve had some incredible costumes, and can’t wait to see what this year brings.

With each year proving to be a sell out, be quick to get your tickets booked and your dancing shoes at the ready.


We’ve a line-up of local talent, and bands as varied as our beer! For 20128, check out who’ll be on the Dutch Barn and HayLoft Barn stages – there’s everything from folk, punk, rock, SKA and Scottish trad. See the band and stage list here.

Why have the trouble of getting home when you can camp?

Your ticket includes camping from 4pm on Friday 7th September until 11am on Sunday 9th September.

Please be aware that this is a working farm and that the camping is on organic certified land. We ask that you respect the land and do not bring any glass bottles into the arena or camping area please, for the safety of both other attendees and our lovely farm animals.

Jocktoberfest is a weekend for fun, but we do have a few rules to keep everyone safe and our working farm in shape.

We ask please:

  • No fires in the campsite area.
  • No dogs on site.
  • Please collect your rubbish and use bins provided. Take all tent pegs away with you too please, as these can be very dangerous for the farm animals and local wildlife.
  • Please take all of your camping equipment home.
  • No alcohol can be brought into the festival area (we’ll be serving great tasting, organic beer)
  • No glass bottles anywhere on site.

Where Can I Park?

Parking will be available on the farm with a wee walk to the campsite.

Can I Bring a Campervan?

Yes, campervans are permitted, and cost £50 for the weekend.

The cost supports us in returning it to the original condition.
