Information

General Information

We really want everyone to have a fantastic time at Glastonbrewery and raise lots of money for Bay Aqua Therapy in the process. Entry will be by ticket only, which will be exchanged for a wrist band on the door. Tickets can be purchased on the door, unless we sell out like last year, so if you really want to come, it’s best to buy your tickets in advance, it’s cheaper too.

Food

We have lots of scrumptious food available at Glastonbrewery including plenty of choices for veggies. This year we have: Go Burrito (Mexican), Sanah’s Indian Cuisine, James Lively’s Hog Roast and BBQ (no gee gees guaranteed!) and The Coffee Carriage (Specialist teas/chocolate & coffees, Panini’s & biscuits).

Disabled facilities

We have tried our best to keep Glastonbrewery as wheelchair friendly as possible, most of the area is paved & there are disabled toilet facilities within The Brewery. However, we are very short of disabled parking bays right next to the venue, so we kindly request where possible, people are dropped off using the disabled parking bays only. If there is a problem, please speak to us & we will endeavour to help you. Click here to contact us.

Directions

Lancaster Leisure Park is just 4 miles from M6, exit 33 or 34. Near to Williamson Park and The Ashton Memorial, just follow the brown signs for “Leisure Park”.

There is a large car park on site with overspill parking available. Car parking is free. Please use the car parks available rather than parking on Wyresdale Road.

The nearest train station is Lancaster and the Leisure Park is on the opposite edge of town, a good 20 minute walk. There are taxis from the train station, or a short walk down the hill brings you to Lancaster Bus Station. The no. 18 bus travels down Wyresdale Road and passes the Leisure Park entrance. The 8A (Lancaster south circular, anti-clockwise) and the 8C (clockwise) both stop near the top of Wyresdale Road, a 2 minute walk from Lancaster Leisure Park.

Kids

Glastonbrewery is a family friendly festival. This year we will have a selection of children’s entertainment including a bouncy castle, face painting, hair braiding, henna tattoos and much, much more. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult and need to leave the premises by 11pm.

Seating

There will be some seating available, but feel free to bring your own folding chair or a picnic blanket. We just ask you to place them thoughtfully so they don’t cause an obstruction for wheelchair access.

Onsite toilet facilities

There is a main toilet block on the Leisure Park site and a brand spanking new one in The Brewery itself, so please gents don’t piddle elsewhere.

Accommodation

Please contact Lancaster Tourist Info for more details. The nearest is the lovely 5-Star The Ashton next door to the leisure park. There is also plenty of local city accommodation in easy distance on foot or by taxi (see Lancaster listings for Trivago and Booking.com) as well as some camping options within a 5 mile radius.
