The festival’s musical performances will take place in a large rustic barn within the castle grounds. The castle, along with its grounds and gardens, will be open during the day, with birds of prey giving flying displays at the castle’s Hawk & Owl Centre – all of which is included in the festival ticket price of £125 for adults (available here).
