Are children allowed to go to SoTFest?
Yes! We want our event to be enjoyed by pirates, young and old. Think of it as a family fun day, pirate style!
I have not received my tickets yet?
Oops! Sorry about that.

There are a few possible reasons why this may be the case. Have you checked your email junk/spam folder? Tickets are emailed to you instantly after your Paypal payment has cleared however at busy times these emails may be slightly delayed.

If you have still not received them after 24 hours of making a purchase please reach out to us!
I can’t print out my ticket! What can I do?
Never fear! We can scan barcodes from most smartphones so make sure your phone has plenty of juice!
I have purchased a bunch of tickets for me and my friends but we won’t be arriving at the same time. What should I do?
In this instance, the first person to arrive should collect the wristbands for the party. This person will then need to leave the venue temporarily to pass on the remaining wristbands as their friends arrive.
I bought a ticket on eBay / Gumtree / some mysterious stranger in the tavern…
If you purchased your ticket directly from this website you won't have a problem - however, beware! Tickets bought via third parties aren't guaranteed to be valid! Every barcode is unique - if you arrive at our registration desk and the barcode has already been scanned, you will be declined entry.
I bought a ticket but now I can’t attend. Can I have a refund?
We can’t offer a refund but you may pass your ticket on to a pirate friend. Just make sure they bring a copy of the email/ticket containing the QR code or forward the email to them so they can have it scanned when they arrive. Failure to do this will result in entry being refused.
I have a question that isn’t listed in the FAQ’s. What do I do?
Please email in the first instance.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

What time does SoTFest start and finish?
