About

What is Ampthill Festival…well its…

“A summer weekend of music, entertainment and fun for the community, and a myriad of fun and entertaining money raising events throughout the year.”

The weekend comprises of AmpRocks (Friday), Ampthill Park Proms (Saturday), Ampthill Gala Day (Sunday) & Ampthill LitFest. The paid events of Ampthill Festival enable the free event of Ampthill Gala Day.

 

*** Please Note ***

Ampthill Festival starts on Friday 30th June and runs across the weekend. Starting with AmpRocks on Friday, Proms in the Park on Saturday and culminating with Gala Day on Sunday, it is truly set to be an out of this world weekend.

The preparation within the Park will start on Tuesday 27th June at 08:00. We have many scheduled deliveries arriving on site from this time onwards, mostly on large articulated vehicles. All deliveries will arrive on site via the West car park and then along the road adjacent to the cricket pitch.

To maximise safety for our volunteers, contractors and Park patrons we will be closing off the Arena area from 08:00 on Tuesday 27th June. There will be no access into this area from this time until 18:00 on Monday 3rd July.

View a map showing in detail the area that will be affected. If you are visiting the Park during this period we urge you to take care and be mindful of deliveries arriving and leaving from the Park. Please also plan your route to avoid the closed areas.

Ampthill Festival apologises for any inconvenience caused, but assures you that everyone’s safety is paramount during the Festival period.
