General Information

First thing we should let you know is that there is NO ATM at the Hoedown, held at Kings Acre farm. However, you are welcome to bring your bank cards since there is a card machine behind the bar, but we’d certainly prefer cash.

Anyone who brings alcoholic drinks, drugs, weapons or anything more serious on their person, will have them confiscated and can be asked to leave the event. So far, we haven’t had any problems and each year, we’ve maintained a rootin’-tootin’ atmosphere and we want to keep it that way!



We’ll have fantastic ales from breweries such as Spitting Feathers, Weetwood & Purple Moose. There’s also a range of cider, wines, prosecco, spirits and soft drinks to quench everybody’s thirst!

Kings Acre farm is fully licensed and features a small tavern called ‘Walk the Dog and Duck’.
It’s a quaint, on-site pub so:
Please don’t bring your own alcohol.
We’ll have plenty of refreshing drinks available at the bar.



The food for this years Hoedown is still being discussed!
However, we are pretty certain that the hog-roast will be given a miss this year. There will be a variety of hot food, most likely a barbecue, veggie burgers, beef burgers, hot dogs, salads etc. If  you’re camping, you are welcome to make bring food for breakfast, please provide your own cooking equipment, or bring wood for the open fire to help sustain a barbecue.

Please be sure to tidy up, the volunteers who will be running the event will be as knackered as you from all the dancing, and as you can imagine, they really don’t want to be picking up litter all day. Bins will be provided all around the site, so please help us preserve the environment.

This is a charity event, the pricing is fair and profits from the bar & food go to the charity.


What to Wear?

Well it’s a HOEDOWNNN! So why not get into the spirit? Bandanas, cowboy hats, leather boots and check shirts! Yee-haw! Keep in mind, it might be July but this is jolly old England, not Texas! So bring some warm layers and a waterproof, just in case the heavens open! We have a neat pond you can go kayaking in so perhaps bring a change of dry clothes, in case you fancy a dip! Make sure to be prepared if you are staying overnight too, torches, cooking gear, sleeping bags, warm blankets… and of course, a tent might be useful too!
