Family Ticket: 2 adults, 3 children; Child Ticket: aged 5-15; Under 5: FREEA headline development for this year has been the creation of a stunning Iron Age-era round house, built using many traditional methods and tools by the Ancient Technology Centre of Cranborne. Sited very close to the festival entrance, it will be lived in throughout the festival week by experimental archaeologists Caroline Nicolay and Tom Timbrell. Through the week, Tom will discuss The Iron Age Smith and create Iron Age tools and weapons in his forge, constructed adjacent to the house. This event will be held at the Roundhouse.
The Outdoor Programme daily ticket gives you access to everything on the festival's massive Outdoor Programme.
We have talks on the IPGL and History Hit Outdoor Stages, the Living History encampments and static displays, Speaker's Corner talks, performances from the History Tellers and others, live music, two bars, the Emporium, book shops and numerous cafes and food stalls. Anyone with an Outdoor Programme ticket can access up to twenty-five different scheduled events on any one day, so it is truly great value.
For those wishing to experience The Trench, Sword School and Children's Creative History events, these are ticketed separately and need to be pre-booked. Rides on the Vintage Fairground are payable at the ride.
Tickets to individual events in the Hiscox and Smith & Williamson tents also provide access to the Outdoor Programme on that particular day (1 person per ticket).
THIS IS AN OUTDOOR PROGRAMME EVENT. ONLY A SINGLE OUTDOOR PROGRAMME TICKET PER PERSON PER DAY IS REQUIRED.
If you have a ticket for a tented talk the same day, there is no need to buy an additional Outdoor Programme ticket.
