Rosie and his gang are huge supporters of the festival and have spent tens of thousands of pounds since the early years of POTP to restore this grand old lady of the area back to her former glory. 

 

With demand expected to be high for the 2022 event, we also have limited spaces for camping in the grounds and includes a cooked breakfast and use of facilities including showers in the deal.
