Festability 2022 – tickets now on sale

Yes, it’s that time of year again and here we go. Tickets for 2022 are now on sale.

Before we tell you more, let’s take the chance to answer some questions you may have.

  • If you purchased tickets for 2020 (yes, it was that long ago), they will still be valid for 2022.
  • The prices have been kept the same for 2022.
    • £15 for a single person or £55 for a family ticket (must include two children).
  • Festability 2022 will take place on Saturday 18 June 2022. Yes, June! How excited are we to have a date in June? The answer is “Very”!
  • We will fully comply with the Government guidance on 18 June 2022 with regard to Covid-19.
  • We do not offer complimentary carer tickets. We are sorry. We would love to do this but unfortunately, carers make up over 50% of our audience. If we did this (believe us we have looked at this every single year), we would have to at least double our ticket prices and we don’t want to do that. Hopefully one day, as Festability grows and our donations/funding increases, we may be able to revisit this but not this year.
  • Tickets will be mailed out from the end of March 2022 – please don’t panic if you haven’t received anything before then.

Christmas Sale

To get the party started, we are having a short Christmas sale.

From today until 21 December 2021, tickets can be purchased at a discounted price.

£12.50 for a single and £45 for a family ticket (again, family tickets must include at least two children).


At Festability 2019, the demand for our merchandise was huge. This year, once again, you can pre-order your merchandise and collect it on the day. This means you don’t lose it before the day and you know it’s paid for before you come, leaving you extra money on the day to spend at one of the trade or food stalls.

Support Festability

Logo of Festability 2020

As we are sure you can imagine, the cost of putting Festability on can be rather immense (who knew how much barriers, stages and lighting could cost!!)  We have been approached by a number of people and organisations asking how they can support Festability so we have put together a variety of packages.

£5 support for Festability

Starting from just £5, we are offering people and organisations the chance to support Festability.

With each package, we have shared what this will help us to cover the cost of and also what you can expect in return.

For example, £10 helps us to pay for five people to use the accessible bus to/from the station and £25 helps us to pay for two wheelchairs users to access Mobiloo.

In return, we will have a public Thank you page where we can share your name and contribution.  If you prefer to remain anonymous that it also possible, just email Debs@festability.co.uk

£1000 support for FestabilityOrganisations, who may like to contribute more, can help us to cover the cost of the stages and marquees and in return, we will promote them on our home page and have banners around the venue.

The more they can afford to contribute, the more we can promote them – for example with logos on our lanyards, stalls and complimentary tickets for some friends or work colleagues.

To find out more, head over to our Support page to find out about the event and why you should support us, or if you are already committed, head over to our Support Packages page where you can pay online.

Should you, as an organisation, prefer to support via cheque or require an invoice, then please get in touch with  debs@festability.co.uk

Other ways to support Festability

We do appreciate that for some people it is just not possible to make a financial contribution, so you can support us by buying a ticket and/or merchandise.

Alternatively, you could sign up as a volunteer for the day.

You can leave your hat on

Festability BaseBall Cap

Earlier this week, we announced new merchandise for this year – something we didn’t offer last year.  Immediately people have started to buy the shirts and wristbands but we had a few of you ask about baseball caps.

Well, of course we listened.  This is your festival after all.

Festability BaseBall CapWe are thrilled to announce that we have now added a limited stock of baseball caps to our merchandise.

Again, this can be pre-ordered before the event, to be collected on the day.

The image shows the cap with our logo in Yellow.  However, we have a selection of yellow, purple, pink and blue logos available.  If you have a preference, email Debs (debs@festability.co.uk) after you have ordered online and we will make sure your colour of choice is put to one side for you.  Alternatively, you can decide on the day.

You can also find these items on our Merchandise page

There’s only 57 days to go!  

Have you got your tickets yet?

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you can buy online before the event at a much cheaper rate than on the day.

Pop over to our Tickets page to see what works best for you – a few single tickets or a family ticket.  Remember, you cannot buy family tickets on the day, only single tickets will be available.

Already bought a ticket?

If you have already bought your ticket, they will start to be posted out later this month – they look amazing, such a great memento of the day.




Strike a pose

Festability Merchandise

Last year, we were approached by so many people asking where we were selling T shirts or merchandise to promote the event. Sadly, we had to let you all down which was a difficult feeling when all the feedback was so amazing.

Festability Review

This year, we are hoping to make more people’s dreams come true as we are now offering a selection of merchandise.

You can pre-order it now to collect on the day (and don’t worry, changing facilities will be available). We have a really limited stock so get in quickly, we have already had messages from people asking if we are providing them.

So what are we offering?

    • Lanyards, which were a huge success last year.  This year, they are slightly more able to cope with any rain!
    • T Shirts – White or Black.  Small, Medium, Large or X Large
    • Night Glow “I Love Festability” Wristbands – a variety of colours

Get a Night Glow Wristband Free – If you pre-order a t-shirt before the event

If your budget doesn’t stretch that far, don’t worry, you can purchase a night glow wrist band without having to buy a t-shirt.

So get ready to strike a pose in your gorgeous t shirt, lanyard or wrist band and let your body move to the music.

Tickets are still available, don’t forget they will be more expensive on the day so get them bought now and use that extra cash to buy yourself another burger, wristband or drink on the day.


Breaking down the barriers

Crowd at Festability 2018

Last year, we had such an amazing line up of Acts.  The feedback was great, something for everyone and we thought “it’s a little bit funny” how people have such different tastes.

This year, we wanted to change the line up a bit.  We thought “hey kids, shake it loose together” to keep it fresh.

“Got a feeling we will meet again”

We invited back three of the bands from last year.  Well actually, they asked as soon as they had finished if they could come back, they loved the whole event and didn’t want to miss out this year.

Welcome back to The AutistiX, Smokin’ Mavericks and Shaken Albert.

We are really delighted to see them back for another year.  They were all really popular last year so we can’t wait to see their performances this year.

“Your feet just can’t keep still”

New to Festability 2019, we are thrilled to welcome

“Can you feel the love tonight?”

The organisers soaked through at Festability 2018

Last year, the heavens opened as we reached the end of the day but many of you stayed to the bitter end.

Our Freddie Mercury tribute was a great way to end the day.  Songs we all know and can sing along to.  It didn’t matter that the rain had appeared, no one wanted to miss out on the final sing along.

That set the bar high and we have given a lot of thought to how we ended Festability this year.

We are thrilled to announce who is going to be our final act of Festability 2019.

We have dropped several clues throughout the post, and we are sure most of you will have worked it out by now.

    • Breaking down the barriers
    • It’s a little bit funny
    • Hey kids, let’s shake loose together
    • Got a feeling we will meet again
    • Your feet just can’t keep still
    • Can you feel the love tonight?

Yes, you guessed it.  They are all lyrics or titles from Elton John songs.

This year, our final act is Elton Towers – an Elton John Tribute.

Elton Towers - Elton John Tribute - Festability 2019

Will you be joining us to do the Crocodile Rock at the end of the event?


Don’t forget you can buy your tickets online or at some selected venues.

Get your tickets in advance as they will cost more on the day and family tickets won’t be available at the gates.

We can’t wait to see you all on 11 May.  It promises to be another great day.
