Join us this summer!

In 1989, New Wine gathered for the first time in Shepton Mallet. The aim was to refresh, inspire and minister to individuals in the power of the Spirit so that they could then go out and share what had been experienced and learned. This summer, after 35 years, over 14,000 people will gather at The Bath and West Showground to pursue that same vision.

Off-site tickets

Did you know, if camping isn’t your thing, you can buy an ‘off-site’ ticket and stay in a local hotel, B&B, with friends, or even your own home (if you live close enough), and still be able to attend the full New Wine Festival programme?

There are many off-site accommodation options not far from the showground in Shepton Mallet, Castle Cary, Glastonbury and further afield. These include local hotels, B&Bs, holiday homes, glamping, and camping sites. Off-site tickets are £40 cheaper than camping tickets, include free parking and allow access to New Wine festival from 7am to midnight each day.

We’ve compiled a list of available places to stay that we will update weekly on our accommodation page.



Make it a weekend!

If you can’t make the whole festival, why not make a weekend of it by booking local accommodation and buying day tickets for Saturday and Sunday?

Day tickets give access to the full festival programme from 7am – midnight (excluding kids groups and luminosity.)




There’s no better way to start the day than a healthy feast of God’s truth.


A time for quiet reflection, prayer, readings and simple communion.

  • It's the only holiday we feel we can go on as a family because of our son’s special needs. We saw God’s amazing grace working in him through the week.

  • It’s a huge part of our year and we're always blown away by how, at such a young age, they meet with God and grow in their faith.

  • Looking back at times Jesus most impacted my life, many were at United with my church. It's a joy to see people saved, set free, fired up and recommitted.
