Full ticket prices below.


The festival organisers have also revealed a raft of changes that will improve the festival’’s traffic management procedures.


Most notably, the festival has appointed CTM – the UK`s biggest and most respected parking and traffic management company to oversee all vehicle and traffic management.


In order to reduce the congestion experience on the roads this year, festival gates will open on Thursday from 9am and will remain open until 9pm. The number of campervan and caravan tickets has been reduced in number, and all spaces will be marked out in advance.


The Police will be ensuring that traffic flows are maintained, and will be actively enforcing a strict ‘no waiting zone’ in the vicinity.


Live music will not take place on the main stages on Thursday evening, however various other areas, stalls and bars will be open from later in the afternoon.


Organisers have promised that: “The Bearded Theory booking team are hard at work securing some of the best live acts on the planet to perform at BT2019, and the first announcement of acts is expected later this autumn.
Michael Eccleshall, Bearded Theory spokesperson says,


““2018 was an exceptional year for everyone involved in Bearded Theory Festival. To welcome the likes of Robert Plant, Jimmy Cliff and hundreds more to our Spring Gathering – which started out as a stage in a pub garden made out of pallets a few miles up the road – was just mind blowing! We are incredibly proud of the overwhelmingly positive feedback received from both fans and the media for this year’s event, however we are never complacent. There is no doubt that we have our work cut out to make 2019 even better – but myself and the entire Bearded Theory crew have complete confidence that BT2019 will deliver the best experience yet to the only people that matter – our loyal festival-goers.
See you all back at Catton Hall in May!””


Having started life more than a decade ago as a birthday party in the garden of the Knockerdown Pub in Derbyshire, Bearded Theory’’s Spring Gathering has evolved to become one of the UK’s best-loved and most critically acclaimed festivals, winning major awards including: ‘Best Small Festival’, ‘Best Promoter’ and ‘Best Family Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards; and ‘Best UK Independent Festival’ at the AIM Independent Music Awards.
