Stone Valley Festival South is set in the picturesque site of: Hillside Farm, Pepper Hill, Great Amwell, Ware, Hertfordshire, SG12 9RZ SVF South's music is set in a large open grassed arena area, with great views of the stage from all over the site, including large video screens. Folding chairs, picnic blankets, etc, are fine to bring, but we would politely ask that they're located further back, for safety reasons, as nearer to the front of the stage is where people stand closer together. Food & Drink We'll be further expanding our range of food traders so there'll be a new, larger range of all kinds of food available right through the festival in 2024 at competitive prices, and a bigger range, including more healthy eating options. As before, we’ll be running our own bar at the event, and there'll be separate Premium and Real Ale Bars. We'll have the same competitive drink prices and more bar staff to make sure you’re not queuing. We want you to have a great time without making a hole in your wallet! Campers can bring personal food and drink onto the site for consumption by campers, in the camp site only. You may bring limited food and soft drink into the music entertainment area, when you arrive, for personal consumption only. A small food picnic in a small bag or rucksack is allowed, (no large bags, holdalls or cool boxes), plus one 500ml plastic, sealed and previously unopened bottle of soft drink or water per person is permitted. However, your own alcohol may not be consumed in the designated entertainment area due to licensing restrictions. No glass or metal utensils are allowed anywhere on site due to Health & Safety restrictions.
