Sitting pretty   Recently updated !


We welcome every visitor to the festival, and have a unrivalled number of seats at Manchester Central. Many of you enjoy making new friends of the drinkers you sit alongside.

But maybe you want to arrange to meet and sit with old friends and colleagues as you try our stunning selection of beers and ciders? So – new for 2020 – we’re pleased to introduce the Tiny Rebel VIP Package.

At the heart of the festival, you’ll be handily-placed for all our 20+ bars. And whether for one or twenty people, your package includes entry, souvenir glass, festival guide, a guaranteed seat in the Tiny Rebel VIP Area and £10 of beer /cider tokens to get you started. It’s ideal for groups whose members may arrive at different times.

At £22 for Thursday and £25 for Friday or Saturday, we think it’s fairly priced too. You’ll need to buy your ticket in advance from our tickets page, so we can plan for your arrival. Your seat in the Tiny Rebel VIP area is yours throughout all opening hours on Thursday or Saturday. We’ve split Friday into two sittings – noon till 5pm and 5pm to close (10.30pm).

So don’t delay. We expect plenty of interest from work places, groups of friends and those who regularly travel to the festival from some distance. Now everyone can be a VIP in 2020, courtesy of our sponsor, the award-winning Welsh brewery Tiny Rebel.
