Bug Jam 34 Ticket / Covid-19 Update

Since the latest roadmap announcement from the government regarding the re-opening of venues and events, we have been inundated with enquiries regarding Bug Jam 2021.

Whilst the government has announced that large scale events may be able to take place no earlier than 21st June, subject to the successful targets being met at the previous roadmap stages, we cannot speculate at this time what impact this may have on Bug Jam.

The best outcome possible is that the government advises that large scale events can resume without reduced capacity and all legal limits on social contact can be removed.

Until we are armed with more information and have liaised with our Local Authority, please bear with us and of course, we will update you as soon as we can.

In the meantime, tickets for Bug Jam 2021 will go on sale in due course but if you already have tickets from Bug Jam 2020, these are simply rolled over to Bug Jam 2021 (like for like). You do not need to do anything other than show up with your Bug Jam 2020 tickets.

If you are unable or wish not to attend Bug Jam this year, you have the option now to transfer your tickets from Bug Jam 2020 to Bug Jam 2022. You will need to do so by completing the form on the Ticket Page which must be received by us before the end of May 2021.

In the unfortunate event that Bug Jam 2021 must be postponed, all ticket holders for this year will be offered to transfer to Bug Jam 2022. Please see Santa Pod Raceway’s Essential Info page for full terms and conditions.

Fingers crossed that the roadmap out of lockdown is successful and we can look forward to welcoming you all back to Santa Pod very soon!


Tickets and more information will be coming soon. Thank you for your patience.

At Santa Pod Raceway the safety and welfare of racegoers, participants and our staff is our highest priority. To ensure our site is Covid secure, visitors will find hygiene, social distancing and safety measures around site in line with Government guidance.

Important Notices

  1. EXIT & RE-ENTRY GUIDE: Bug Jam is one of Santa Pod’s busiest and most popular events in the calendar and we have a large number of visitors using rural routes through our neighbouring villages. To relieve our local communities of unnecessary traffic during the event, Bug Jam operates a strict re-entry policy to minimise disruption: visitors choosing to leave the venue anytime during the weekend will need to pay to re-enter the venue even if they have already purchased a ticket. So, please bring all of the camping supplies that you will need for the weekend including enough petrol/diesel! Your continued cooperation in this matter is always appreciated and keeps the Bug Jam vibe alive.
  2. NO SPACE SAVING: Campers will no longer be able to save space for friends arriving at a later time. Large groups should book club camping pitches, and small groups should aim to arrive together.
  3. CAMPING SPACE & LARGER VEHICLES: If your camping space is considered excessive by the campsite stewards, the organisers reserve the right to reduce the size of the area you have taken up. Please be sensible in this respect to avoid any inconvenience with your set up. The contents of larger vehicles will be checked and noted on arrival for non-camping related items. If you are bringing sofas and similar furniture items to Bug Jam you must take these items away with you when you leave site.
  4. LIMITED TICKETS: The number of tickets going on sale will be strictly limited. That means first-come-first-served, and those who book in advance will have priority over anyone trying to buy tickets on the gate. If tickets sell out before the event, NO tickets will be available to buy on the gate, so Santa Pod can be certain that we can accommodate everyone.
  5. NO CHINESE LANTERNS: Chinese lanterns are banned at Santa Pod Raceway as they pose a real fire hazard to the crops and thatched roofs surrounding the track.
  6. NO GLASS: No glass bottles, jars etc allowed on site. This is for you and your car's safety and especially for those in the camping areas. Cars will be searched on arrival.
  7. CHILD WRISTBANDS: Children can sometimes wander off, wristbands for children will be issued when you arrive, please write a contact phone number on the wristband and make sure your child wears it so we can call you if we find the little treasure should they become separated from you.
  8. When you arrive and leave site, please keep your speed down, don't litter and respect local residents.
