Tickets will be valid for the whole event day: 10:30 am – 5:00 pm.

All persons attending will require a valid ticket. There are two types of ticket, which are exchanged for wristbands on the day:

Early bird tickets are now sold out.

‘All-in’ (All Activity) – £22.50 each:

Includes unlimited turns on all activities, suitable for those age 5 and above for the whole day! (a couple of age/size exceptions – see below).

‘Basic’ (Entry & Smaller Activities) – £3.50 each:

For all spectators and smaller children. Anyone attending who does not wish to partake in the main adventure activities will need this ticket. This ticket includes all activities suitable for children under 5., plus some that are suitable for over 5’s, but it does not include the main adventure activities for ages 5+

‘Basic’ wristband holders will be allowed to accompany ‘All-in’ wristband holders in their group onto the canoes – this includes adults and younger children, providing thy can fit into the buoyancy aids provided. Please note, adults who would like to canoe without a child must have an ‘All-in’ wristband.

All participants will receive a wristband on arrival which indicates the type of ticket purchased. This will need to be shown at each activity.

Subject to availability, a selection of the main activities may be available on a pay-per-go basis on the day, for ‘Basic’ wristband holders. You may purchase individual tickets for these at £3 each.


As with every year, there are some minimum age/height/size restrictions which apply to activities, for safety reasons.

As such, Eaton Vale have advised that all of the main activities are suitable only for ages 5 and up. Children who are small for their age may not be big enough for some activities – this will always be the decision of the instructor in charge of an activity.

Two activities have higher age limits. They are:

Trapeze (High Ropes) = Age 7

Air Rifles = Age 10

Children under the age of 5 are very welcome to join us and will be able to take part in any of the additional activities available on the day that are deemed suitable for younger children.


We will have tea, coffee & soft drinks on sale in our cafe area, along with a lovely selection of cakes and bakes.

Our ‘Street Food’ vendors this year will be:

  • Elsie’s Pizza
  • Fat Ted’s
  • Fitzroys Streetfood (Mac’n’cheese)
  • Bubble & Melt Waffles

If you are a food stallholder and would be interested in providing your services at our event, please contact the email the address below.

Picnics are welcome too!


Please note that Eaton Vale is a dog free site – no dogs are allowed.
