Tickets

Admission is by ticket only; this will be exchanged for a wristband which allows entry to site throughout the opening hours of the weekend. A Child ticket can only be applied for when booking an adult ticket.  Children need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.  A child remains the responsibility of the accompanying adult. Buy tickets today!

Access

The festival is held on a grassy field site so wheelchair users and people with pushchairs and buggies might find the ground difficult in wet weather. Accessible toilets are available and disabled parking areas by the entrance. If you require copies of any of our information in large print please contact info@asparafest.co.uk. Guide dogs are welcomed.

Customers requiring full time care are eligible for a free carer ticket – please book through info@asparafest.co.uk.

Dogs (and other animals)

If you would like to bring your pet, please make sure they are well behaved and on a lead at all times. Asparafest will have livestock on site and pets may not be allowed in certain areas. Please clean up after your dog.

Food & Drink

We will have a large array of food and drink for sale at Asparafest, from locally brewed beers to exotic meats, vegan salads and more. There is something for everyone and we ask that you don’t bring your own food and drink on to site. Asparafest is committed to supporting local traders and suppliers, please buy local!

Please don't bring glass; help us keep the site safe and tidy.

Weather

We have our fingers firmly crossed for sunshine from dawn to dusk, but, just in case, we will have a number of under-cover events and stalls. Asparafest does take place in a rural location so please bring your wellies and raincoats just in case!

Why Asparagus?

Well, what’s not to like about this most noble of vegetables? It tastes great, cures hangovers, is an aphrodisiac, and has a unique chemical compound that always causes conversation! The Vale of Evesham is the UKs main asparagus growing area and is justly proud of the fine Evesham Gras!

For more information see our Asparahistory page, and the British Asparagus Festival .

What else to do in Evesham

Whether  you are visiting the Vale for the first time, or want to find something new on your doorstep, there’s plenty to do outside of Festival time. National Trust pubs, steam trains, riverside strolls, there’s plenty to make you want to make a full weekend of it! Read more here.
