Parents are also entitled to bring small fruit and snack boxes for their children if they need to.
The Pub in the Park sells a variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, while the Street Food Market will include food vendors selling pizza, jacket potatoes, barbecue food and more.
Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options will also be available.
Unfortunately there are no cash machines on site, so anyone hoping to purchase food and drink should bring money with them.
What can I bring?
People will be able to bring their own chairs, tables and blankets to the park so they can make themselves comfortable while enjoying a great afternoon of live music!
Dogs are also welcome, but they must be on leads at all times and kept away from the Kid Zone and Food market areas.
A full bag search will also take place upon entry to the site; any prohibited items found will be removed until the end of the event.
What other entertainment will there be?
As well as the music, there are activities for the younger members of the family with a dedicated Kids Zone.
The zone, which is completely free, includes bouncy castles and giant dance games, which means the children will always have something to do if they're looking for even more entertainment.
