Festival Info

Tickets for Fête des Bêtes are completely sold out and none will be available on the door. If you are buying a ticket from a third party it is highly recommended that you contact St James on admin@stjames.gg to ensure that it is a valid ticket and transfer the name of the ticket into your own. 

On the day you will not need your ticket printed out, just the email confirmation you received and your surname. Once confirmed you will be issued with a wrist band at the gate.

There will be plenty of food and drink available on site and we ask you not to bring your own. Alcohol and glass bottles are strictly not allowed on site and bag checks will be in place to police this. If you are bringing children we appreciate that sometimes they have food and drink they prefer, and you are welcome to bring what you need to keep them happy.

It is great that so many of you are bringing young ones to the festival and we have added more activities to what we had planned to keep them interested.

However, we will not be running a baby sitting service and the site does have hazards that would be a danger to young children, or more adventurous older children. We ask politely that you keep your children near to you at all times and ensure that they do not impact the enjoyment of others on site.

Please do not bring your dog, or any other animal, to site. They will not be allowed on.

The site is amazingly beautiful and the walled gardens will be open during the day. Alongside the more formal side, there are also walks down to the lake. We ask that you respect the site, use the bins provided and avoid accessing areas that are roped off or are obviously not meant to be accessed. We don’t want to put up lots of fences and would prefer to trust attendees to respect the site and the people who call it home.

The Seigneurie and the festival will be well sign posted from the crossroads at the top of Harbour Hill.

The bars at the festival will be using a token system. You will be able to buy these tokens at a stall next to the bar and it will be much easier than it sounds. The reason behind this relates to the difficulties in having enough change for the bars and the poor functionality of card machines on Sark. It will be quick and easy and you will be able to buy tokens with cash or card throughout the day. Any un-used tokens will be refunded on demand.

There is great accessibility to the site and performance areas.
