Day Tickets – Pay on Gate

There are no advance day tickets available for just single days (due to high costs of processing), but there will be access available each day, pay on the gate, £5 each day. This event may sell out especially if the weather is good which is why advance weekend tickets are available, which guarantee you access any time over the weekend – but if you can only come for one day and don't want a weekend advance ticket, you can arrive early and pay £5 on the gate. Please note though that especially if the weather is good you should arrive early if you want to pay on the gate.


Kids under 12 and OAP's

Kids under 12 and OAPs pay £1 on the gate each day, pay on the gate (no advance tickets for Kids or Oaps available). Please bring photo id if your kids are under 12 but 'look' over 12!! Only 2 kids under 12 allowed per adult over 18, and all kids under 12 MUST be accompanied by adults over 18. OAP's will find plenty of seating and 'quiet' areas (away from the bands and in the shade!) to relax and enjoy the fayre. Please bring proof of status if necessary, thanks.


Access All Areas

You need either an advance weekend ticket or a day ticket to access all areas of the BVF 08, including the stalls, talks and demos, caterers, bars, entertainment and bands.

Yaoh Competition

Thanks to all those who entered last months fee giveaway to win a 250gm tub of Yaoh dehulled hemp seed– most of you reckoned that the answer was A) Yaoh are running a hemp company and the BVF 08, a couple thought we should be running for president of the USA which was very nice of them, although a few jokers including ChrisxCross and Chris Skelton ex Royce Rolls reckoned the answer was C) and we were having trouble running a bath. Cheers pal.

This months competition was going to be something based around Liverpool's Chumpions League semi final hero John Arne Riise being arrested on the M62 (apparently for heading in the wrong direction) but we did actually get some complaints last time about our blatant dislike of Anfields residents so we scrubbed that one for now, sure there will be plenty more opportunities in the future especially if Rafa and the Shermans stay 'in charge' of this current bunch of comedians for yet another season.

So moving swiftly onwards...
This month's competition – to enter the chance to win a most fabulous one of SIX FREE SETS OF SUNBLOCK!!! Including one SPF 15, one SPF 30, one After Sun, one Sun Cream and a couple of SPF 15 Coconut lipbalms; please answer the following question:

To get you in the holiday mood...
Ibiza is an island in the Med to the right of Spain on the map. Is Ibiza best know for:
A) Loads of sunshine and parties plus some of the best clubs in the world
B) Glaciers, igloos and some of the highest snowfalls anywhere
C) Loads of extreme fanatics who hate music and parties and people having a good time and ban any gatherings over 2.

Please email your answer to:, and don't forget your name and address in case you win!!
