Music on the Farm takes place on Sunday 27th June in the fields of Solley’s Ice Cream Parlour, in Ripple.

Tickets are now SOLD OUT for this event. Please do not turn up on the day without a valid wristband as sadly we won’t be able to let you in.
Due to strict Government guidelines for the hosting of events under stage 3 of the roadmap for lifting lockdown we are limited to 50% capacity on site.

If you are a ticket holder or supporting the event on the day, please read on.

On the day info


There will be a section for disabled parking near the main entrance, these spaces will be on a first come first served basis, unfortunately we are unable to reserve parking.

The site will be accessible for wheelchairs – at the side of the stage there will be some boarding to make a walkway laid down on the grass for wheelchairs to go onto. But please bear in mind it is a farm so some areas will have undulating terrain.

There will be a disabled toilet available and Mobiloo will be onsite – a special disability changing facility.

Parents are advised that children remain the responsibility of their carers at all times, even in the children’s entertainment area and to be aware that it is a working farm.

There will be plenty of activities to keep the children entertained!

Please note the area housing the caravans and planes is out of bounds.

You are welcome to bring folding chairs and picnic blankets but please be advised no tables are allowed unless you have a pre booked gazebo.

We are hoping that the sun will shine on the 27th June  so don’t forget your suncream, however if we’re not so lucky, do remember to bring along an umbrella – the show will go on regardless!
