Children aged under 14 - Free**
* Proof of age may be required on entry to the event
** All children aged 16 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult in order to camp at the event
PLEASE NOTE: the weekend fee is applicable regardless of duration.
The gate entry prices are non-negotiable.
Q: Why have the prices changed?
A: We need to cover our costs, so we can keep putting the show on. The show is extremely good value. The show is run by volunteers from SVWOC, we are not a commercial enterprise - hence why it is such good value.
Q: Why is the free entrance only for Children 14 years and under?
A: Dub Odyssey is an extremely good value for money event but that hasn't stopped people taking advantage of our good nature therefore we have had to make changes to both the prices and child free entrance age. We were subject to groups of local youths who attended the event without adult supervision and also qualified for free entry. We cannot take responsibility for youths attending alone therefore a charge and adult supervision will be required otherwise access will be denied at the gate.
Q: Will children aged 14 and under still have a child's wristband?
A: Yes, we will still provide a child's wristband for identification and security purposes. For the children aged 14 and under we have had to charge 1p on the website in order to send the wristbands but this will be refunded on the gate if requested. Free items cannot be added to the shop on our site.
Q: I've ordered tickets, when will I get my wristbands?
A: Approximately 2 weeks before the show. We run the show in our own time so the tickets are generally processed over weekends and in evenings in batches.
Q: Is there a ticket booking fee?
A: No fee for booking but postage is not included and will be an additional charge.
Q: Do you have a refund policy?
A: Yes, on receipt of your payment your tickets will be sent by post. Once the tickets have been issued (left possession of the Dub Odyssey team and are in transit) the tickets are not viable for a refund unless exceptional circumstances deem a refund necessary. Reasons for refund are at the discretion of the Dub Odyssey team and the SVWOC Committee and a refund is not guaranteed.
Q: I have bought tickets but cannot attend, can somebody else use them?
A: Yes, the tickets are in the form of wristband. It is solely your discretion if you wish to give/sell them to anyone else. Any monies/arrangements agreed are your responsibility and Dub Odyssey/SVWOC will not be responsible or liable for any issues resulting in the exchange of tickets with a 3rd party.
Q: Can I bring dogs?
A: Yes, as long as they are kept on a lead & cleaned up after.
Q: Is there running water?
Q: Are there toilets?
A: Yes, there will be portable toilets located at various points on the site. Toilets will be regularly cleaned throughout the event.

Q: Are there showers?
A: No, there are no shower facilities provided
Q: Is there first aid?
A: Yes, first aiders will be on-site throughout the event positioned at the main entrance.
Q: What camping fields are there?
A: General Camping, Large Group Camping & SVWOC Club Camping are available. These camping areas are not policed and are recommended areas only. Due to the nature of the venue and the capacity we cannot police these areas so we ask all visitors to respect other visitors whilst at the show. Any disruption deemed dangerous and extremely excessive will result in evacuation from the show.

A: You are not permitted to have a fire or BBQ on the ground. BBQ's that are deemed safe and kept under control and which are min 12” off the ground are allowed. BBQ coals and ash must be removed from the field after use. Do not put hot coals in bin bags - it has caused a fire at a past event! Any scorch marks are subject to a fine of £50 payable at the show.

Q: I only want to trade for half of the weekend do I have a reduced fee?
