All-Inclusive ticket

We believe everyone should be able to see and do the same at Fantasy Forest, regardless of how much money they spent.

Therefore, we try to include as much of the entertainment, workshops and guests within the ticket fee as we possibly can without skyrocketing the price - you pay one price to enjoy the entirety of the festival!

We have a variety of options available to suit everyone! Children 7 and below enter the festival for free!

The experience through the eyes of visitors

One of the best weekends I’ve ever had. Truely magical. I danced ceilidh with most every creature you could name, saw costumes and creatures beyond belief, made new friends, and then danced the night away to some awesome bands. Amazing traders and talks too. Best way to get lost in fantasy.

I attended in 2019 and enjoyed it so much! From the beginning the crew were so helpful and cheery,there was so much to see and all genres welcomed and everyone was so inclusive and enthusiastic.Even if you didn’t want to dress up just seeing all the amazing creativity was brilliant. A good selection of stallholders to make you part with your money and really good music 🙂 A lovely relaxed friendly festival atmosphere. The castle is stunning too and lovely to walk around when the public have gone home. This festival deserves to grow from strength to strength. So sad it couldn’t go ahead this year with all the weirdness of 2020 but this is a gem and I can’t wait to go back 🙂
