In 2016, Teddy Rocks moved to a bigger site to increase capacity and in 2017 the festival took the plunge and relocated to an even bigger premises and secured a permanent license at its new home, Charisworth Farm, in Blandford Forum, Dorset, where it can offer weekend camping and car parking alongside 4 stages and a host of food vendors, bars, and activities.
