No Parking: there is no parking on-site and street parking mostly residents only.
No Dogs: The Patch is a dog free park. Anyone arriving with a dog will not be allowed entry - sorry!
Challenge 25: Before serving alcohol, our bar staff will ask for proof of age ID from anyone they think looks under 25 years of age. Please bring ID if you think you may be challenged
Disabled access: We I'm to make Patchfest as accessible as we can. The site is mostly flat and grassy with pathways in some areas - so not too difficult to traverse. All toilet three blocks include one Wheelchair accessible portaloo.

KID'S PATCHStuff for kids of all ages:
Of a recent years event... "1,500 – 2,000 people and apparently enjoyed and appreciated by all. In our survey 30 per cent said they ‘liked’ it and 70% said they ‘loved’ it. Feedback also suggested a very positive impact on the community - 73% of those asked said that they felt the event had ‘increased community spirit’. About 90 new members joined the Friends group at the event or during the days leading up to it – many offering to get involved and help out with future activities."
PatchFest is made possible by the combined effort & talents of about 80 volunteers including mucians and other performers. It has also been supported by a City Council grant (£700 for this event from £1,200 total grant).
