Where is AllSorts Festival?
The name of the site is Out to Grass, Woodend Farm, Bromyard Rd, Malvern, WR13 5JW.
How do I get to the site?
We recommend you carpool and drive to the site. However, the closest train station, Great Malvern, has trains direct from London Paddington every hour. We recommend you book your trains as early as possible.
Great Malvern is only 15 minutes from the site but you will need to get taxis, we recommending calling the cabs ahead of time. Here are the numbers for the local taxi companies:

Once you purchase a ticket on our website, all you will need is your confirmation email to hand upon entry. We collect your name and the names of all people (if on a multi-ticket) for use at the gate.
Where do I get booze?
The venue has a fully stocked bar inside the arena, with friendly staff and very reasonable prices. We ask you to support us, and the venue, by using the bar as much as possible. Sustainable cups are £1 and indicate that you have purchased the alcohol at the main bar.
Can I bring booze in?
Yes, but glass is strictly prohibited and you will not be permitted to take your own alcohol into the main site because it is licensed. Alcohol from home is permitted in the campsite and in the chill out tent, Otto's Grotto. The bar inside the main area is good value, offers a wide range of beverages, and supporting it helps support both AllSorts and the Out To Grass site as a whole.
