This year, organisers have asked festival-goers to not bring in any food or drink into the event due to venue regulations as well as a safety precautions.

Lisa Hampson, one of the Harvest Moon organisers said: "This year no food or alcohol is permitted inside the arena, you're welcome to bring in bottled water, which must be sealed, this can be refilled on site.

"Food can be consumed outside the fenced area, just not in the main arena. We have many affordable food and drink stalls and a fully licensed Bar, for your enjoyment.
