You can bring your own picnic into the main arena but we have a wide variety of catering on offer, including a large BBQ, Indian, Mexican and Chinese. Unfortunately, we can not allow alcohol to be brought in to, or out of the arena (a range of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be on sale from our bars).
Due to licensing restrictions, you are not permitted to bring alcohol into the arena. There is a wide range of premium alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks available for purchase from our bars.
Please note this is a no re-entry event. Re-entry to the Festival is not permitted, with the sole exception of parents/guardians accompanying children under the age of 16. Single use re-entry wristbands will only be issued on site at the Festival to parents/guardians who are in possession of a Child Ticket and this pass allows for re-entry to the festival with or without your child. The reason for this exception is because the Festival is a family-friendly event and we want to be flexible to the needs of parents/guardians. Adults not accompanying children to the Festival will not be allowed re-entry. Single use re-entry wristbands will also be available for disabled guests.
The gates open at 11.00am and we recommend that you get to the venue early, so that you don’t miss any of the action!
The Festival starts at midday and finishes at 10:30pm.
Please Note: THE RUNNING ORDER WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE DAY AND NOT IN ADVANCE.
Tickets to this event are limited, so don’t miss out!
Tickets can be purchased online through this website.
Tickets will NOT be available on the gate.

In our efforts to make Let’s Rock Essex! accessible to everyone, we offer disabled ticket holders, subject to availability, a free ticket for a personal assistant. This offer is open to those who hold a current higher rate of DLA or other UK government approved supporting evidence of their requirement for a personal assistant. Carer tickets can only be issued against general entry tickets.
IMPORTANT: This offer is only available to those people that would be unable to attend the festival without a full time assistant. Every application is looked at on an individual basis and if anyone is found to be making a fraudulent application, we reserve the right to cancel both the original ticket and personal assistant ticket, before and during the event.
To apply for a personal assistant ticket, please follow the procedure below:
– Buy a standard general admission ticket (must be online)
– Email us proof of purchase (the email from Gigantic) AND a copy of your letter of award for DLA (or equivalent)
Please send your email to [email protected] , Please ensure that any attachments do not exceed a file size of 1MB, and that you include your full postal address in your email.
