Site Information

5 on the Farm takes place on Cannon Hall Farm and as such, the event fields are mainly grassy farmland and are uneven in parts. We will endeavour in wet weather to ensure there is a temporary track to the main activities. As this event is outdoors, we advise that you come prepared for potential weather extremes. If you require assistance, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff.

Event Timings

5 on the Farm operates timed entry slots which are booked during the ticketing booking process. We will try our best to accommodate you if you arrive outside of your chosen time slot. The first time slot is 9.30am – 10.30am and represents the time the event opens.

There will be performances and activities throughout the day with the site closing at 7pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Specific performance times are subject to change and will not be confirmed until the weeks leading up to the event, however, please get in touch if you require assistance with regards to start or finish times.
