OllieFest kicks off on Friday 27th August at 6:00 pm and runs to 11:00 pm. On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th we open the gates at 12-noon and continuing the party atmosphere until 11:00 pm. The curtain comes down on OllieFest with the annual fireworks on Sunday at 10.50 pm.
Refreshments are available all over the site, with a range of takeaway food options, from Chips & Burgers to Chinese and Ice-Cream (not necessarily together!)
We have a great range of bars on site to keep the public refreshed and helping them get really into the OllieFest spirit, all provided by All Barred Up, these include:
- The Black Bus Bar
- The Red Bus Bar
- The Artic Bar
- The Gin Bar
- The Ale Bar
To avoid cash transactions at the bar and to cut down on queues, the bars run a token system. You’ll need to buy tokens from the token booth to spend at the bars. 1 token = £1. The bars will not accept cash, so please ensure you have bought your reusable cup and tokens before heading to the bar. Tokens are non-refundable so please only purchase enough for what you intend on consuming. Cash and cards are accepted.
Don’t forget that we are plastic-free festival (not using throw-away plastic cups) instead, we sell you OllieFest cups that they are £2 each, money raised goes to OllieFest and the chosen charity. These cups are reusable and you get to keep them at the end of the festival, this also dramatically reduces the waste on-site at OllieFest.
Don’t forget the annual Ollie Floyd Memorial trophy Rugby match on Sunday 29th August. A Forest of Dean XV plays a Ross XV for the trophy – kickoff is at 12 o’clock and is an OllieFest staple, one of the best ways to honour the namesake of OllieFest, playing the game he loved the most.
Then for the kids, we have all the fun of the fair for them to enjoy, and if they really need to let off steam – MegaBounce will be there to tire them out so the adults can jump to the music while the kids jump to the inflatables! not forgetting the fun fair, that will keep them entertained for ages
