FOOD & DRINK
The Bell BBQ
The Bell BBQ is a regular Eckstock favourite and will once again be offering freshly cooked burgers and hot dogs and of course the legendary pork rolls from the pig roast!
A selection of Vegetarian and gluten free options will be available from the Fantastically Fresh stand including Middle Eastern salads, nacho trays, warm tortilla’s, homemade dips and freshly Baked Bread Artisan
The Kids Bar
There will be a selection of soft drinks on offer from the kids bar for when the little festival goers get thirsty.
If you are looking for a healthy option and want to work out for your drink, why not try the smoothie bike. Choose your fruit and then use the bike to blend it into a refreshing smoothie – nice!
The Gettem’ Inn beer tent
This is no ordinary beer tent. The Gettem’ Inn has a full bar offering with draught bitter, lager and cider on tap and if that isn’t cool and refreshing enough there is Prosecco and Pimms, along with a selection of wines. The drinks on offer will be lower than pub prices and all the money raised goes to local causes. So soak up the fantastic atmosphere of the gettem inn and enjoy your favourite tipple – cheers!
Support the event, and the range of Village causes by taking full advantage of the fayre we have on offer... Cheers!
THE VILLAGE LOCK IN
It’s full-on on the Main Stage until 10.00pm and then we invite you to the 'Gettem Inn' for an hour of pure village magic. We’ll have late night food and drinks available along with lashings of good old Village chat and atmosphere!
NEED TO KNOW
As with all outdoor Festivals we are at the mercy of the weather so please do ensure you check the forecast and come suitably prepared, particularly if it’s hot... sunscreen is a must.We have increased the toilet provision for this year’s Festival and have dedicated Male, Female & Family toilets. Please help us by using the facilities provided. The Recreation Building facilities will be reserved for those requiring the UA toilet only. As in previous years we have St John’s Ambulance on standby in case of emergency, they will be easy to spot. There will be ECKSTOCK personnel recognisable by their high vis tabards. They will be on hand to help if required, and answer any questions. Festivals can be busy and we hope this year’s ECKSTOCK will be no exception, we suggest you identify the sound desk as a meeting point if you need to. We understand that people want to put down rugs, and chairs and get great positions from which to view the performers. Please do so considerately, and please abide by any instruction given by ECKSTOCK personnel.
Above all ECKSTOCK is a fun day, we want you to be safe and enjoy!
