We've been to the stand a couple of times and both times we've had a great night. Majority of the acts are fab.

We took our 11 and 16 yrs old was very good, better for the younger ones with some good interactions and fun for adults too. Great price for an afternoon out.

You can buy tickets on their website or on the door. They take advance ticket sales for future shows too. As for accommodation there's loads wait for a last minute deal .
