Tickets are £27.50 in advance or £35 on the gate, under 16s go free.
Lastly, Donna at Santa Pod has sent us this advice for Bug Jam:
There will be a limited number of tickets to the event available on a first come, first served basis. If we sell out before the event, then no tickets will be available on the day.
No 7.5 ton lorries and transit-style vans (except for camper vans and VWs) will be allowed into Bug Jam and camping plot sizes will be limited.
People will not be able to reserve space for friends so if you want to camp together you will need to arrive together or if you are a group with ten or more vehicles, then you'll need to pre-book a club spot to guarantee your area.
NO EXIT & RE-ENTRY: This year once you have arrived at Bug Jam you will not be allowed to leave the Santa Pod Raceway site and re-enter at any time during the weekend. Anyone who leaves site will have to pay full admission again to re-enter. This is at the request of local authorities. There will be camping supplies available on site including crates of beer at reasonable prices. Please bring everything else you will need for the weekend with you including enough petrol/diesel.
To be fair, it doesn't really apply to us as we've all those bases covered but please pass on the info to any occasional visitors who are thinking of coming to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
