The Redfest team

Redfest is upon us so we just wanted to outline some key guidelines for the festival.

If you’ve been to Redfest in the park before, a lot is the same this year. One key difference we want to highlight is to ask everyone to please not bring any BBQs to the park. Due to the long period of hot weather the grass in the park is very dry so BBQs are a real fire risk.

Now onto the festival guidelines!

Redfest is a free community event which will take place in St George Park this year with fringe events at loads of local venues (more about that here). The event is family friendly and will run from 11am until 9pm in the park.

Please feel free to bring your own food and drink to the park (or enjoy the food and drink stalls on site!) but please tidy up after yourself and dispose of litter in the bins provided and again NO BBQS!

If you’re planning travel to the festival, we ask people to walk, cycle or get public transport if possible! Find out more about getting to Redfest here:
