Is there camping?

Camping is part of the offer and is included in the ticket price. Planet Taika is light-years from planet earth, and camping is recommended for our event.

Is there disabled access?

Disabled access is offered and a designated camping area and toilet facilities will be provided. The event is hosted in an outdoor venue and the environment may make it a bit more difficult to get around, but our team will be on hand to make the experience as pleasant as possible. Please let the ticket seller know at the time of booking and access to the disabled areas will be assigned to your ticket.

We are offering a discounted support ticket, please let the ticket seller know prior to booking.

What food requirements are catered for?

We have a wide variety of food and drink vendors on offer throughout the event. All have been vetted and all uphold the values of The Giving Tree. We are sure all of the earthlings that attend will find the options they require.

Is there a search policy on entry?

The Giving Tree and Planet Taika are Plastic Free areas, and all single-use plastic is banned from entering the event. We will be conducting searches to protect Planet Taika from plastic.

While we are at it, if we happen upon any banned substances, dangerous weapons, or illegal products on your person, we will be dealing with it in accordance with the local government guidelines. 

What Alcohol can I bring?

At The Giving Tree we have limited the amount of Acohol you are able to bring into the event. This is 6 Large Cans of beer, 6 large cans of cider or 6 premixed spirit and mixer.

Is glass allowed?

Glass is a much more sustainable material, but it is also dangerous to humans and to Taikan’s, we won’t allow any glass on Planet Taika.

Is plastic allowed?

In short- No.
Single-use plastic and plastic-based products will not be allowed onto Planet Taika. Any plastic will be confiscated, and recycled accordingly at the entrance, and anything inside the plastic will be disposed of. Please think carefully about what you bring, and take away from Planet Taika

Bringing in water?

Due to our ban on single use plastic, we will not allow plastic waterbottles, new or used, onto site. You will be asked to leave these at home and instead bring,or purchase from one of our stalls, a reusable metal water bottle. These can be refilled fromthe fresh water points across site, or ask at the bars for a top up.
