Below are questions we frequently get asked regarding the show, please have a quick scan through before messaging us as you might find the answers to what you need to know! Failing that feel free to use the live chat option at the bottom of the page to get in touch, or email us at


  • What time does the gate close on Saturday?

    The gate will close for entry at around 9pm, so please make sure you arrive before then. In extenuating circumstances if you need to arrive later than this, please contact us via email within a week of the event, or using the live chat option at the bottom of the page.

  • Are glass bottles allowed?

    No, glass bottles are strictly banned from our fields. Please decant any glass bottles into plastic ones before bringing onto site.

  • Can I bring a BBQ/Firepit?

    Absolutely not, as the ground is used as an agricultural showground, we cannot have any scorch marks on the site. Gas BBQ’s and stoves are allowed if they are raised well above the ground. Thanks for your co-operation here!

    There are plenty of food trucks located in the main arena, selling fantastic meals without extortionate prices!

  • Is there a quiet camping area?

    Yes, just follow the signs from the gate.

  • Can I camp on Sunday?


    Camping is available Saturday night only, gates open 2:30pm and will stay open until 9pm.

  • Can I bring a caravan?

    Yes, caravans are permitted in the camping field.


  • What can I do if the 2021 event gets cancelled/postponed?

    In the event of CumbriaVAG Show & Shine Festival 2021 being cancelled or postponed, you will have 2 options. We will send an email out asking you for your choice if the worst happens.

    Option 1
    Transfer your tickets over to the 2022 event.
    We will automatically transfer your tickets over to the 2022 event for you.

    Option 2
    If you’re not sure you can make it next year or if you simply need the money, you can request the cancellation of your tickets and a refund.

  • How early can I arrive?

    If you are coming for the weekend, please arrive no earlier than 2:30pm lunch time on Saturday, as we cannot let you on site and there is no space to queue on the road directly outside the event.

    On Sunday, gates will open for show cars at around 8:30am, with public entry from 10am.

  • Are dogs welcome?

    Well behaved dogs, on leads, are more than welcome!



  • Can I buy tickets at the gate?

    Due to restrictions put in place due to Covid-19, tickets will not be available at the gate for the 2021 event.

  • Will my 2020 CumbriaVAG tickets still be valid for 2021?

    Tickets from the cancelled 2020 event will automatically be transferred to the 2021 event on the 10th & 11th of July.

  • Are ticket prices per person?

    Yes, all tickets are per person.

  • Do weekend tickets get me access to the Sunday?

    Weekend tickets get you access on both Saturday from midday and the Sunday show. They also include camping and access to the entertainment Saturday night.

  • I’ve ordered tickets but not received an email…

    Please check your junk folder before messaging us. If they are not in there you may have entered your email wrong at the checkout (you’d be surprised how often this happens!). In this case please drop us an email or use the live chat below and we’ll get you sorted.

  • Can kids get in free?

    Kids under 10 are free to camp on Saturday with a paying adult. 10-16 year olds need a child ticket (£5).


    Anyone 16 or under is free on Sunday with an accompanying paying adult*.
    *max of 2 under 17s per paying adult.

  • Do I need to print my ticket?

    The short answer is yes – we need a printed copy of your ticket in order to scan the barcode to validate the ticket and let you into the festival. In some cases we can scan the code directly from mobile phone screens but this cannot be guaranteed so we ask that you bring a printed copy to make gate entry as smooth as possible.
