Read this stuff...
no, seriously, do...

This page contains all the essential info you need in order to have a fantastic time at Together. It's important that you read everything here, because we can't be held responsible for your air horn or water-cooled laser when it gets confiscated...


Opening Hours

The main ticket gates will be open from midday on Friday 3rd August and the entertainment will commence from approximately 14.30pm. Music on Saturday and Sunday will start at midday.

The campsite will close on Monday the 6th and everyone will need to be off site by midday.

Please note traffic on and off-site is limited to the hours of 8am – 10pm. No traffic, bar emergency and service vehicles are to enter the site between the hours of 10pm and 8am.


Green/Local Pledge/No one use plastics!

We are privileged to have such an amazing site and surroundings to host the party in, we don’t want to ruin it, in fact we want to put as much effort as we can back into looking after it.

We will be working closely with the local council, our neighbours and emergency services to provide the best possible party for both the locals and the travelling partygoers.

We aim to source local produce and utilise local services where possible.

We’re very aware of Together’s beautiful surroundings and we’re constantly looking for ways to reduce impact on the environment - eco toilets, eco spa, reusing your cups, compostable packaging and using local suppliers and services where possible.

This year we are going a step further to reduce plastic on site, we’re banning plastic straws and non-compostable plastic cups.

  • There will be a 10p (compostable) plastic cup tax if you don’t have your own cup.

  • We’ll waive the 10p if you bring back your previous cup to reuse

  • We’ll pay 5p per cup for any returned for composting

We hope you are all behind this decision. 

You can bring your own cup or order one of our beautiful steel Together cups that you can use again and again on site and for years afterwards.

Lots of you have told us cold drinks taste better in them, they keep your pint colder for longer, are made from 90% recycled steel, support skills, jobs and industry in Sheffield. Buy cups for collection on arrival here. 

Recycling and rubbish facilities will be provided on the campsite and we would appreciate your support and commitment to keeping the site clean whilst enjoying the party.

Please do not bring glass on site and remember to take as much of your rubbish with you - leave no trace!


Kids welcome

We welcome children and have lots going on for little people. Read more about what we have planned here!

Parents please note: children must be accompanied by an adult at all times on site. Please be aware that the party is happening on a working farm, it’s a home to horses and, whilst we will do our best to keep the great outdoors a safe place for us all, there is machinery and potential hazards around - please don't get were you shouldn't and keep your eyes peeled!

Is there a dressing up theme?

Of course! We know you lot love and excuse to dress up.

Together 2019's dressing up theme is... 'Birds of a feather’.

Why?

Because ‘they stick Together'!

And mostly, this years décor will be influenced by the beauty and wildlife of Uganda; the barn will be strewn with beautiful bird-themed décor (thank you Mairead Preece and team!).

We know you love an excuse to dress up and we hope you'll be able to work this one to the max!

Eat, drink and feel merry because you'll be helping to change lives! 

At Together we are trying to cover our costs and raise money for some very deserving kids in the slums of Kampala.

The bars and cafe are on of the main ways we will raise money for this life changing work, so please visit them as much as possible and don’t bring loads of your own booze please.

Food

The music is not the only delicious thing about Together 2019. We’ve got a huge range of tasty treats lined up for you from Zoe's Ghana Kitchen, Sicily street food, Asian grub foundation and Ganders Goat.

All chosen for their excellent food and with the added bonus that they’re also lovely too!

And of course, the Awamu cafe crew will there to bring you homebaked snacks and treats, hot and cold drinks late into the night.

100% of any profit made from Together 2019 goes straight to Awamu project in Kampala – so please eat drink and be merry!


Booze

We will have a fabulous bar offering a selection of your favourite tipples at very reasonable prices from chilled bottles of bubbly to a fabulous selection of ales and ciders.


Fire and BBQ’s  

Due to the fire risk caused by this heat wave, we have to put a total ban on open fires, fire pits and instant BBQs/any BBQ's that are at ground level. 
 
We are allowing trolley grills (i.e. proper bbq’s raised on legs) and request that you douse the ground beneath it before you light it. They must never be left unattended, and the embers must be extinguished as soon as you have finished cooking, please have sufficient water to hand to put it out.
 
The campsite has fire lanes and exits for your safety. If we see a fire we will insist you put it out, if you refuse you may be asked to leave as you are putting others in danger.
 
Fire is a serious concern for us and for your own safety, and everyone else's, please respect the ban.


Disabled Access

Together welcomes all. Please note the party is taking place on a farm and therefore the ground is uneven and can be tricky to navigate even when sober. There will be an accessible toilet on site and we can reserve parking if you let us know in advance.

We offer a carer ticket to attendees in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)/Personal Independence Payment (PIP). We ask that you buy your tickets directly from us in advance by contacting Emma.


Campsite noise 

Please, please, please respect our neighbours!
 
If you’re a night owl and want to stay up late, please camp as far away from the houses that run along one side of the camping field as possible (a map will be provided on site and the campsite sign posted for family camping, quiet camping and night owls).
 
Make use of the barn in the early hours, it's open until 4am, will be full of lots of cosy areas to sit with your friends. You won’t be alone there!


Phone charging

Phone charging will be available at the Awamu Tea Barn for a small donation.

Age Restrictions

We welcome all ages to the festival. However, there are entry restrictions. Anyone 16 and under must be accompanied by a ticket holder over 18 years old at all times.

ID may be required upon entry to the event.

Please bring your original documents as you won't be able to use a photocopied version. If you don’t have any of these, or don’t want to lose valuable documents onsite, we suggest that you apply for a PASS approved ID, some of which are free to get.

Peach, love, unity and respect

We believe that everyone has the right to enjoy themselves safely and consensually in a space free from all forms of discrimination, bullying, harassment or judgement.

Which is why we have adopted NEST – a set of social guidelines. NEST is like a "social insurance policy" - something we have just in case something does go a bit wonky.

It’s a code of behaviours that is all about having a good time while being welcoming, safe and consensual.

 The Code

  • I agree that everyone has the right to enjoy themselves safely and consensually in a space free from all forms of discrimination, bullying, harassment or judgement.

  • I agree to treat others respectfully, to act responsibly and to be held accountable for my own behaviour, regardless of intoxication.

  • I understand that my words and actions may have (unintended) consequences. I respect another person’s right to identify my behaviour as unwelcome, regardless of my intentions. I agree to stop doing anything that is identified as unwelcome, if asked to do so.

  • I understand that everyone is responsible for ensuring a positive environment, including me. I acknowledge that fear of “spoiling the vibe” is not an excuse for inaction, as any behaviour that warrants intervention has already spoiled the vibe for someone. I agree to assist (or find someone who can assist) anyone who is subjected to unwelcome behaviours.

  • I agree to prioritise marginalised people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. This means that I understand unconscious bias and power imbalances and will take these into account with regard to complaints (and if necessary, challenge counter-complaints that ignore them).

The only kind of fun we're trying to stop is the kind where one person is enjoying it but the other person isn't.

No one wants to have to deal with this stuff, including us. But this stuff happens, and that's no fun at all.

If at any point you feel uncomfortable at Together, you can approach anyone at the Awamu Café and ask for ‘Angela’. No matter how busy the team may look, we are there to listen and help. Our first and most important action is to ensure that everyone feels safe.

Please read more about the code of conduct and share and discuss with your friend and family.
