Your questions answered

Will you be charging again this year?


As in 2019, people will be encouraged to get their tickets in advance, to ensure they can get in, and to help us plan effectively for a safe event.

The added incentive this year is that people can buy in advance to make savings on day tickets or via a 3-day festival ticket.

For example, an adult attending the festival over all three days, can save £17.50 by buying a 3-day pass in advance, and a family of four similarly can save £51 by buying a family three-day pass in advance.

Will I be able to get tickets on site (on the day)?

As in 2019, you are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance for each of the three days, something we are very keen to encourage in 2020 as people can save money by doing so.

A decision will be taken about on-site availability nearer the event.

When will tickets go on sale?

Tickets will be on the sale in the coming months.

What’s the difference between Early Bird, Advance and On the day prices?

In order to encourage early adoption of the tickets, the price of tickets will scale as we get closer to the festival. Early Bird ticket prices are available until 30 April. After this day you can get an Advanced ticket, which is more expensive than the Early Bird ticket. If you wish to pay on the day, you can still do so. However, the price on the day will be higher than both the Early Bird and Advance tickets and may not be available if tickets sell-out.

Can I still buy tickets on the day?

If ticket sales match last year, there will be availability on the day, however this cannot be promised at this stage.

Please buy in advance to guarantee entry and save money at the same time!

How many tickets can I buy?

There’s a maximum of 6 per person per day

Can I get a refund if I can’t attend?

No – tickets are not refundable

Do people have to get a different ticket for each day? How do we book tickets?

Yes, a separate ticket will be needed for each day.

As in 2019, an online ticket portal will be available for car parking and entry tickets.

Are there any concessions?


There will be concessions regardless of purchasing as part of any early bird price or on the day.

Concessions will apply for young people and children aged between 5-16, adults in receipt of benefits and anybody over the age of 60.

Under 5s and carers will be free.

Are there any other changes for this year?


Although there is no age limit to attend Godiva Festival, for this year if you are aged 16 years or below, you need to attend with a responsible adult over 18 years old.

Each adult will be able to accompany up to six 5-16 year olds.

There will be no entry or re-entry after 9pm on Friday 3 July or Saturday 4 July.

When I order my tickets online, what happens then, do I get them in the post or are they downloadable or do I collect on site?

The tickets will be available to collect on site on each day of the event, or if you’ve ordered for more than one day, for each of the days you’ve ordered.

This will be at a signposted dedicated ticket collection outlet on the day.

Is this the same for car parking?

There will be a car parking charge of £10 per vehicle per day.  This can be payable in advance via the website or on the gate.

What are the opening times?

  • Friday 6.00pm to 10.30pm
  • Saturday 12.00pm to 10.30pm
  • Sunday 12.00pm to 7.00pm
