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 years 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 UKs 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.

Can you tell Gigantic tickets as they have just emailed me to say I can’t have a refund until the new dates are announced.
I'm struggling to process for a refund. I cannot go in September
A real shame but needs to be done. Hopefully see you in September 🤞🤞
Bearded Theory you are bloody amazing!!! We all appreciate the huge amount of work that goes into a festival, and then to move it, keep most of the bookings and still give out clear, straightforward advice on refunds is really fantastic - you are SuperStars!
I can’t actually make it, already got another festival lined up that weekend, but we will be back next year and just have to party twice as hard! Have a great Autumn Gathering ♥️
Fantastic efforts from all the BT team, should be roundly congratulated for pulling this off 👏 see you in September 🤘
Already booked September dates off! Good work bearded theory.
I’m so gutted I won’t be in a field in May with all my fabulous friends and even more gutted my other half can’t make it on the new date. but bearded you are brilliant with all the work you do so thank you xx
A seven day period for refunds is bloody ridiculous !
Thanks so much for your hard work. Hope we will all be back in Sept. We will be ready for a mammoth party at this point!!!!
I emailed for my refund on the day this post was released but I’ve not heard a thing to say it’s been received. It’s a bit worrying x
Do Eventbrite know as I'm paying instalments and cannot make the new date , how do I stop the instalments and get what I have paid back?
Roll on September, total respect to all of the BT team.
You lot are amazing. See you in September ... and blimey, we'll all be so ready for it. x
Fingers crossed for September then. I now have EOTR and Bearded Theory on consecutive weekends, virus allowing. I feel a fortnight’s holiday coming on...
Gutted, had a great time last year and was really looking forward to this year, even managed to get early bird tickets, gutted,gutted, gutted,gutted, did I mention gutted.
Great work and communication, thanks for being so on this. See you all in September
Well done Bearded Theory for rescheduling the whole thing! A lot of extra work you did need but you’ve done brilliantly. Hope to see you in September 🎸🎺🎷🥁 🧔
Bearded Theory's Spring Gathering I have emailed eventbrite to request a refund. Should i expect an email to confirm as I have received nothing and am worried I will miss the deadline? Also I'm gutted I cant make the Sept one. I'm sorry for all you guys who put in so much work organising this amazing fest. Xxx
Well done with the contingency planning, really amazing job. Should have you lot running the country!
So grateful if you guys for sorting this
Great work guys! We know how hard moving shows are, so you've done very well. Roll on September!
Well done Team Bearded. Great forward planning. See you on the other side!
Well done Bearded Theory. Let’s hope all this stuff is over by September and we can all party and celebrate that we came through it!
Thank you guys, we will all rise once again and look forward to September, keep well and take care 😘
Totally understandable - you've done a fantastic job of reorganizing in really difficult circumstances.
Thanks for the updates! Least we know where we stand.
Excellent work, well done. It's certainly looking like September the way things are going. Hopefully we'll all be there fit and well. Thank you Bearded Theory..
Millie Orme looking like September X
Can't thankyou guys enough for the info don't want to sound callous but its good to know so can sort it with work. Wish some of the other ones had a bit more clarity. 100% support from this end.
So so upset as if it's held in September then this is looking like the first BT in 11 years that I won't be able to attend. However you're doing a great job, and I hope things will be back to normal next year
Thanks for the update. Really impressed with how you are dealing with this. Roll on September.
Thanks Bearded theory we will be there regardless of dates and line up 🙂
What a brilliant, quick decision. Thank you all.
Well done for sorting. See you in September then. ❤️💃🏼xx
You lot are seriously top class festival organisers, nicely done.

Kevy Bell looks like BT could be an early 60th birthday bash for me. Praying Patti Smith can still make revised date(s).
Well done guys.
Very honest of you, thank you
Thanks for keeping us informed, quality festival, quality organisers, it's also my boys 18th in September so I'll be needing another ticket
Mass gatherings like schools 🤔🤔🤔
glastonbury just got cancelled and as this event is before that was meant to happen i assume bearded will be??
👍🏻👍🏻 totally professional decision, well done
Great clear information. Thank you.
Can't say fairer than that. Thanks 👏
All power to you guys, always good to have a Plan B.
If this does change dates are the same bands still
Thanks for keeping us informed
Well done for the update guys x We can make the new dates too.... Our first BT.
Already had our plans scuppered for Hubbys 50th Party in 2 weeks🤣🤣
It's all going Pete Tong !!
Well done all concerned! We should be there either way all being well. And the weather in September is usually perfect.
I just want to say Thanks for the advance date in September, I have to request holidays well in advance so this has given me time to do so. So fingers crossed will see you probably in September. Xx
