the festival and our organisation as a whole. If you have another question that isn’t answered below please get in touch with us via email . 


Yes! Under 18 year olds go free to all Lowender Celtic Festival ticketed events but must be accompanied by an adult with a valid festival ticket.

There is a shuttle bus running on Saturday 28 October from Redruth School to The Moor in Falmouth. It will leave Redruth School car park at 12:30am and tickets can be purchased when booking Lowender Celtic Festival Tickets.

We are also looking into the possibility of running a shuttle bus between Redruth accommodation providers and the town centre / Redruth School. You can express your interest in this service when you book your festival tickets, and we will look to run the service if there is enough interest to make it viable.  

Other than the Albany Rugby Football Club, all festival venues/locations have step-free access.

St Andrew’s Church, St Rumons Social Club and Market Hall have accessible toilets and baby changing facilities. Redruth School has an accessible toilet, and though no formal baby changing space we have a designated quiet area for baby changing you are welcome to use.

Redruth has a host of cafes and restaurants, and full details on our website: Many look out onto Redruth’s main high street where you can also enjoy street entertainment on the Friday and Saturday. We’re also hosting a Mini Cider Festival in Market Hall on the Saturday, and tea and coffee will be available at the Prophecy of Merlin concert in St Andrew’s Church.

There will be a fully stocked bar and food offer at Redruth School during the evenings.


*Please Note* to reduce our environmental impact, we’re asking people to bring their own drinking vessels (e.g. tankard, bottle for water e.t.c.). Alternatively you can buy a reusable festival cup at the event which includes an attractive design with our new branding and makes a great souvenir.


Lowender is a registered charity and all proceeds from bar and food sales help towards making our events financially viable. We want to be accessible, and we think you’ll find our bar is very reasonably priced! We won’t stop you bringing your own food and drink but would love you to support us.  

There are a limited number of parking spaces for campervans at Redruth School. You can book a space at the same time you book your festival tickets online – look out for ‘Camper Van Space at Redruth School’ in the ‘Options’ section once you’ve put your festival tickets to your basket. Spaces are £15 for the full 3 nights (Thursday, Friday & Saturday).


We have also created a list of recommended nearby hotels and B&Bs which you can find here:

Dogs are of course free to wag their tails during the town centre street entertainment and at the Market Hall Mini Cider Festival however we ask that festival goers do not bring their dogs, unless they are assistance dogs, to the ticketed events and workshops. 

Contact with any questions you have and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

You can get a full refund of the ticket price and this will appear in the account you used to book your tickets with within 10 working days. The booking fee cannot be refunded. 

We’d love you to get involved! Find out more here.
