Car Parking

There is plenty of parking next to the venue.

Lift Sharing

We encourage lift-sharing where possible and will endeavour to put people in touch with other Skint-goers from the same area or living en route.


Most Skint-goers camp inside the village hall. However there are several other options. Outdoor camping is available in the field next to the village hall, and there are several B&Bs and self-catering cottages nearby.

If you are camping indoors please bring a sleeping bag, mat, and pillow. As everyone is sleeping in close proximity and there may be music late into the night in adjoining rooms, we suggest that you bring earplugs!

We will have access to the showers in the Sports Pavilion next door at certain times during the weekend. The showers are coin-operated with 20p pieces. Please bring some with you!


All food at Skint is delicious, vegetarian, and prepared by Skint-goers themselves. We do cater for other dietary requirements and allergies, but they need to be mentioned when booking a ticket.

Water, juice, tea, and coffee are provided. You're welcome to bring your own drinks.

There are several pubs in the village that offer fantastic food
