Children and minors:
The event is not aimed at young children. There is no concession rate ticket, but children are more than welcome. How much your children of whatever age will enjoy the event is your call. If you are thinking to come and bring very young children, under 10's do not need to pay but must obviously be accompanied by their parents and this must be arranged by email in advance.
The Ancient Technology Centre is used on a daily basis by school groups and the organisers of Jaminaround kindly ask that you respect the site by leaving it as you found it. Recycling bins will be provided. No rubbish must be left on the grass - especially cigarette butts. There are toilets on site and there will be a drinking water hose to fill up water bottles. No cooking facilities.
Food and Drinks
Delicious, freshly cooked food and a range of hot and cold drinks will be available to purchase at reasonable prices.
The centre is situated in a small rural village so be advised that there is nothing in the way of shops to buy food after 6pm. There are two village pubs which serve food until around 11pm.
This is a cash only event. There are also no cashpoints in the village,
although it may be possible to get cashback in the local pubs.
Nearest will be the town of Verwood.
We advise to arrive with cash in your wallet if you want to buy food or drinks.
There is limited space available for camping overnight at the event.
Camping places must be purchased as a separate ticket from the ticket site.
There is also very limited space for Campervans in the car park at the top of the track on entrance. Campervan spots must be reserved by email also.
These campsites are all within 5 miles of Cranborne.
There are also a few B&Bs in the village
