FAQs

``I have a question..``

No matter how much information we give out, there is bound to be something we’ve missed, so here are some Q & A’s to the things we think you need to be aware of when coming to Knipfest this year.

Mobile phone signal

As regulars to previous Knipfest events will know, in the past there has been virtually no 4g mobile signal at the Knipton location. However the new location at Woodnook does has a 4g mobile network reception, so calling to arrange pick up towards the end of the event by family, friends or local taxi firms shouldn’t be a problem.

** Can I bring my own alcohol? **

Sorry no. There will be a licensed bar on site and normal age restrictions, age challenge, and licensing rules apply to the sale and consumption of alcohol. Bags will be check on arrival and any alcohol discovered will be confiscated.

If you are luck enough to look too young to purchase alcohol, please ensure you have ID with you as you may be challenged.

Enjoy the night and please drink responsibly.

Can I camp anywhere near Knipfest?

Sorry, but there are no camping facilities available at Knipfest. There are however a wide selection of B+Bs in and around Grantham, including a Premier Inn and Travel Lodge.

If it's raining will Knipfest be cancelled?
