At Corbridge Festival, we like to work with like-minded sponsors who share the same passion as we do. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor for the festival, please get in touch and let us know.

We also work in partnership with charities. If you're a charity and would like to partner up with us, just drop us an email and start a conversation. 

The Corbridge Festival takes place at a rugby club. The surface is mainly grass. Camping for disabled people can be arranged.  Please contact us and we will endeavour to organise this for you.

Disabled Carer Tickets
Tickets are available for carers. Please apply to and we will e-mail a carer ticket to you.

Disabled Parking
Disabled Car Parking can also be organised. Please contact us before the event and we will reserve a parking bay for you.  However the route to the main arena from the car park will be across grass.

If you require assistance getting from the car park to the arena, please ask one of our stewards and they will be happy to help you.

Disabled Access Toilets
Disabled toilet facilities will be provided – these will be located in the clubhouse and accessed by a ramp.

If you have particular needs please contact us in advance and we will do our best to help.

Corbridge is a jewel in the crown of Northumberland, lying just off the A69, about 18 miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne. Built from the Roman town of Corstopitum, its rich history can still be seen in sites like its Roman fort remains, Hadrian’s Wall and its beautiful 17th century stone bridge. Its picturesque high street is filled with small shops and independent boutiques, while the idyllic landscape that surrounds it is perfect for country strolls. It often hosts renowned events and festivals like The Corbridge Steam Fair and Vintage Rally, Tynedale Beer and Cider Festival and of course, our very own Corbridge Festival.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers willing to work at the festival. In return you will get to experience a great music festival for free. We simply ask for a minimum of 4 hours. In particular, we need people to help set up on Thursday 27th June and clear up on Sunday 30th June and you'll get to enjoy the Friday and Saturday at the festival. If interested please email us at

When arriving at the festival by car, you can use the official festival parking field. Our friendly stewards will direct you exactly where to go and park.

We encourage you to use public transport where possible. Alternatively, try and utilise car space as much as possible.

Parking is included for campers.

No alcohol is allowed to be brought into the music arena. All bags will be searched. There are a number of onsite bars serving up a huge selection of alcoholic and soft drinks. We need you to use them if there is to be a future for the Corbridge Festival.

Whilst we really do appreciate you buying a ticket and we thank you from the bottom of our exhausted hearts for your continued support, we want you to know that ticket sales do not cover the costs of putting on an event like Corbridge Festival. We rely heavily on on-site bar sales to catch up with costs. 

We really want to build something beautiful for Corbridge and we would love for it to go on for ever more but as an independent event with tight margins and huge expenses, we walk on shaky ground from one year to the next.

You can help us achieve longevity simply by not bringing your own alcohol onsite and by using the onsite bars. 

We hate to say it but you wouldn’t take your own drinks into the Metro Arena or the 02 Academy (or any local gig for that matter) and outdoor events have many more additional costs than indoor events (such as staging, marquees, fencing, toilets etc) so please don’t bring it into the Corbridge Festival. Give us a chance to build something good! 

Thank you.

We will be searching all bags coming into the music arena. This is a security measure as well as a measure to ensure no alcohol is brought into the music arena.

Corbridge Festival is held at Tynedale Park (Rugby Club), Station Road, Corbridge, Northumberland. If you are using a SAT NAV use the following postcode: NE45 5AY

Directions can be found here: Tynedale Park, Corbridge

Tynedale Park is right next to Cobridge Train Station. Trains run regularly from Newcastle to Corbridge and Hexham to Corbridge. If you can please use public transport to come to the festival. 

The last train going back to Newcastle on an evening is 10.17pm (which is why those of you who have been to the festival in the past may have noticed a stampede of people leaving the site just before the headline band finishes). 

Please bring your own chairs as we do not provide seating and it's a long day to stand. At around 6pm, however, be prepared to move seating back or put it away, as most people will be standing or dancing.
