This year, we have a host of great activities on offer throughout the day to keep kids and big kids alike entertained. By popular demand, the slide is back! We got circus workshops, crafting tent, wellie wanging, tin can ally and our very own forest school, there is something for everyone.
All the activities are paid for using tokens that can be purchased from the children’s bar next to the food tent. So grab your tokens and have some fun!
Grab yourself a programme when you arrive and check out the music section for our line-up of bands and performers… we have a host of talent, much of it from the Village, something to suit all musical tastes! Also keep an eye on Facebook for updates.
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!
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!
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!
