Q: Are dogs welcome?
A: Yes, dogs under control are very welcome, clean-up essential!
Q: What facilities are there for persons with disabilities?
A: The venue is very 'disabled friendly' with all buildings accessible including ramps, lifts, toilets and showers. For Day Visitors - Blue Badge Disabled Parking is available. For Campers - there is a grass Blue Badge Disabled Camping Area near the action! There is also limited space for disabled persons requiring hard-standing - please email the organisers on email@example.com to make specific arrangements. In extreme case where electricity is required (i.e. for a ventilator) this too can be arranged in advance via email.
Q: Are there any financial concessions for disabled persons?
A: No, but admission/camping for the Registered Carer of a disabled person is completely free of charge.
How does this work? The disabled person books and pays for standard Day Admission and Camping (if relevant) in the normal way - either online in advance here or pay cash at the gate upon arrival.
Then the Registered Carer must provide proof at the gate upon arrival. This can be in the form of written proof of Carer's Allowance or a local authority Carer's Emergency Card. No proof ... no complimentary pass!
Q: What facilities are there for regular campers?
A: Toilets, showers, chemical toilet disposal points, laundry.
Q: Is it possible to camp pre-event?
A: Yes. Campers can arrive from 09:00 on Tuesday 21st April 2020. No advance booking is required, simply turn up and pay in cash. Cost is just £10 per camping unit per night from Tuesday 21st April 2020 to Thursday 23rd April 2020 – ample camping available.
From Friday onwards the Weekend Camping Permit (up to 3 nights Fri-Sun) kicks in.
Q: Is single night camping available?
A: No … sorry! This is due to some dishonest individuals in the past paying for camping just one night (Friday), then staying until Monday morning! A Weekend Camping Permit (valid for up to 3 nights Fri-Sun) costs just £20, so whether 1 or 3 nights, £20 is good value. Adult admission is in addition to the Weekend Camping Permit
Q: What does a Weekend Camping Permit comprise of?
A: Within a Weekend Camping Permit, camping costs just £20 for 1, 2 or 3 nights + plus a 2-day Adult Admission wristband costing £25.00 per adult covers Sat & Sun.
Q: What are the times of arrival Friday to Sunday over the event weekend?
A: Friday 24th April 2020
Trade/camping gate opening hours 13:00 – 21:00 (after which an Overnight Holding Area operates until the following morning)
Access to indoor trade stands within the grandstands complex ceases at 21:00
Saturday 25th April 2020
Main gate reopens at 08:00 for trade only, 09:00 for those in the Overnight Holding Area. Show opening hours for day visitors and new campers 10:00 – 17:00
(vehicle movement is strictly forbidden on walkways between 10:00 and 17:00 on Saturday)
Sunday 26th April 2020
Main gate reopens at 08:00 for trade only, 09:00 for those in the Overnight Holding Area. Show opening hours for day visitors and new campers 10:00 – 16:00
(vehicle movement is strictly forbidden on walkways between 10:00 and 16:00 on Sunday)
Q: What happens if I arrive after 21:00 on Saturday or Sunday?
A: Due to safety reasons, after 21:00 a temporary 'Overnight Holding Area' operates until 09:00 the following morning. The gate closes again on Saturday 25th April 2020 at 21:00 hrs whereupon the same process is repeated.
In effect this means that if you arrive at the venue after 21:00 you can still 'get in' and camp, but ONLY in the Overnight Holding Area set up adjacent to the regular campsite. Once set up for the night you can then avail yourself of all the facilities exactly the same as everybody else – toilets, showers, evening entertainment (beer tent with live music plus the 'jam session' marquee & fire-pits), plus hot food from the catering outlets up until midnight. In the morning it's then possible to collect your pre-paid passes/wristbands at Check-in or purchase camping/admission tickets with cash at the gate, then drive to the designated campsite safely in daylight ... so in actual fact there is very little difference except for the fact the Overnight Holding Area is one side of a five-bar gate, the campsite the other!
It is solely that locked gate that enables us as organisers to legally fulfill Health & Safety requirements, thus keeping our Public Liability Insurance valid.
We have ample room for camping, so rest assured you will never be turned away for lack of space.
Q: For campers staying Sunday night 26th April 2020, when do they have to depart?
A: Campers have to leave the venue on Monday 27th April 2020 by 16:00
Q: Are electric hook-ups available?
A: No, but items such as phones, devices, leisure batteries and mobility scooters can be charged at the Event Office free of charge.
