Plan Your bOing!

Entry to bOing is free so bring a picnic blanket, your family, friends…and your imagination!

Here are our tip tips for a brilliant festival!

Book your tickets early
Many events sold out early in 2015 & 2016 – so don’t miss out.

The great outdoors
If possible all outdoor events will go on but make sure you bring sunscreen if it shines and raincoats if it rains.

bOing! really is for everyone!
This really is a festival for everyone, babies to great-grandparents. If the team can help you with any access questions then please call on 01227 769075 and let them know.

Don’t forget to eat
A wide range of meals and snacks will be available on the day but you are welcome to bring your own picnic! Find out more.

Make a weekend of it

You can now stay at bOing! The University of Kent has excellent B&B accommodation on offer, including 11 recently refurbished guest rooms in the Grade 2 listed building, Beverley Farmhouse. All rooms have shared bathroom facilities and access to a fully equipped self catering kitchen. These rooms are available all year round.

Book your rooms on our Holidays and Short Breaks Website.

Pets at bOing!

Even pets are welcome at bOing! Bring your dog by all means but be sure you have some plastic bags in your pocket so that you can clear up any mess. If you bring a pet, keep it under control in public areas and be advised that they will not be able to enter ticketed events or Gulbenkian Cafe. Keep it on a lead if you’re on the field or on the road. Make sure your pet has plenty of water available and somewhere to shelter from the sun. Never leave pets shut in vehicles in the heat of the day – if people see a pet in a distressed condition, the RSPCA will be called and you may face prosecution.

Buggies, strollers and prams

Buggies, strollers and prams are welcome at bOing! If you are bringing a buggie, stroller or pram, please be advised that they are not allowed into the indoor ticketed events.  There will be buggie, stroller and pram parking areas available at the entrance of each venue. Buggies, stroller and prams parked in these areas will be left at owners risk, so make sure you keep your valuables safely stored with you.
