Can I buy a ticket on the door?
Unfortunately we can’t offer any tickets on the door. Please make sure you purchase your tickets as soon as they go on sale to not avoid the disappointment of selling out.
Do you sell day passes?
We will not be selling day passes for Tiny Gatherings 2022. The reason for this is to ensure the focus and goal of the festival remains from the start. The goal is to create a festival for the community to build friendships and meet new people in a safe place. Day passes upon research of other festival members have said that they feel disjointed from the festival but when they stay for the duration they can really relax and meet people.
Can I leave the site and re-enter?
You may leave the site and re-enter only if you are staying off of site if there are timings for this in the evening and morning this will be made clear to you. We ask that everyone comes to the site with there food stock ready as we will be limited vhericle movement once the festival is underway for safety.
How can I get to the festival?
The festival is located at the following address :
Weobley Castle, Gower Sa3 1Hb. The field is a little bit past the farm gate heading towards Landimore. This will be clear for you.
Is it child-friendly?
Yes! It is so important to have created a family friendly festival. This is a festival for kids to enjoy being kids and be outdoors no matter the age. Please do bare in mind that all adults are responsible for all children on site.
Where is the festival site?
Is this festival accessible?
This is really important to myself as a festival organiser, and I am pleased to say this festival is accessible.
However, please do bear in mind it is a grass field and not tarmac. There will be an accessible toilet and there are no steps up to any of the venues at the festival but should you need any questions answered please do not hesitate to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
A free carer’s ticket for those that need this can also be provided.
Please get in touch at email@example.com if you have any specific needs and we will do our best to accommodate them.
Is the festival LGBTQ friendly ?
Yes, absolutely this festival is for all tiny spaces and all people. This is a safe space, and any behavior but kindness will not be tolerated and you will be able to contact security or any staff should you need. All toilets are LGBTQ friendly and I can not wait to meet everyone.
Campervans, Camping & Parking
My tiny space is not finished. Can I still bring it?
Yes – please do this is the best part. Once complete you can not go back. It is so nice to see peoples’ spaces before finishing. It also gives you an opportunity to ask questions to fellow campers and they can help visually.
I don’t own a van, can I still come?
Absolutely. There are going to be such wonderful people to talk to from all kinds of tiny spaces but also outdoor adventure folk too. In fact often campervan and van owners want to up or downsize or go from the road to land or even boat. This is your chance to get all of the information and knowledge you need in a casual setting by chatting to others.
Will there be space for social distancing?
Yes this festival is in a large field and should you feel you need space it will be easy to find.
Parking – will there be any and how much is it?
Car / Vehicle Parking passes are available online in the add ons section, with Blue badge holders not needing to buy a Car / Vehicle Parking pass. Should you be a blue badge holder please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember if you are staying in your tiny space this includes one car next to your space only anymore then you will need to purchase a car parking pass. Please bare in mind your parking may be situated in an area of the field near the entrance and exit. And times when you can leave and re enter safely will be made clear to you.
How much is a campervan & tiny space pass?
£25 – A fee needs to be charged to help towards the cost of the site and toilet facilities. This pass is for Friday 2nd September from 14:00pm – Monday 5th September until 11am.
Can I bring my dog?
We have made a limited number of pet tickets available, these can be purchased in the add ons section under Dog Pass, these are for well behaved dogs only. This is a first trial of this and if successful it will enable this offer to be available each year. The dog pass fee will cover facilities needed for your dog such as dog waste bins.
If you require the assistance of a dog, please email email@example.com with proof of this so that the appropriate code can be forwarded to receive a free dog pass.

What are the restrictions on bringing dogs?
Dogs are a part of tiny space living and the outdoor and adventurous life. We know that most dog owners are extremely responsible but we wish to deter any owner who isn’t.
What we ask from you as a dog owner :
- Dogs must be well behaved and kept on a lead at all times.
- Their dog mess must be cleared up at all times, if this is not completed then dogs will not be allowed at future events. If you become stuck please ask for a dog mess bag. Please do not leave the mess and come back to it as children will be playing in the area.
- If dogs are behaving aggressively, upsetting children or causing a disturbance, please remove them from the situation immediately.
- We don’t allow dogs listed on the Dangerous Dog act.
- Dogs must be kept in the festival field at all times. The area is near a farm and we must respect the owners land and livestock.

Food will include vegan and gluten-free options.
There will be drinks from tiny space businesses available. Should you have your own re- usable cup for hot, cold or alcoholic drinks then please do use this, this is the preferred way. We would like to encourage reusable cups.
We would like to discourage disposables on site and keep the beautiful area and waste of the festival sustainable and kind.
Food and drink is priced affordably – they are amazing small businesses in tiny spaces, please support these wonderful companies by purchasing their amazing food and drink.
Do I need to bring cash?
Card options will be available however, please note there will be no cashpoint on site and while some traders may accept cards, others may not.
It is always a good idea to stop at the cashpoint on the way. You are in a beautiful natural area of South Wales and technology may not be on your side at all times. This means you have your card option but can still purchase from all the lovely traders on offer or give donations for workshops that request.
