SITE PLAN_v4 - OFTEN UPDATED, check back again later


method statements:








(also check the guest info page for general info that applies to everyone)

NB: This is site of 'special scientific interest' and as such is subject to special conditions

We must not leave a trace of ash, or singed grass, or digging or litter - we must leave the park exactly as we find it


Please try to arrive before dark as there will be no movement of unauthorized vehicles allowed on site after darkness has fallen

If you arrive after dark you will have to park at the gate overnight and walk onto the site

If you're making a delivery - check in with reception and then go to the site office

If you're staying to work on the site you need to check in with reception or the site office to get your wristband

You MUST have accreditation or a wristband to be on site


Crew can camp anywhere in Crew or General camping. Cars must be parked in the main car park

Crew do not need to pay for a Camper Van Pass if they park in the Crew Camping area - you will be given a free Crew Camper Van Pass on arrival
You may camp in the Guest Camping Area but you will need to buy a Camper Van Pass (in advance or at reception)
If your Camper Van is really a Lorry/Horsebox/Showman's Caravan/Large RV etc. you will be directed to the Large RV area
You may also be directed to this area if we're short on space
(the area is well located and it's fine if others want to put up tents close by)

Make sure access and emergency routes are kept clear

If an essential vehicle pass has been agreed, come and collect it from the site office


Get out - Stay out - Alert Security, Site office or Paramedics.

Stay calm - move quickly - get everyone out and clear from the area.

Bring the correct extinguishers (Wood/paper = water / Electrical = CO2) - and make sure they're up to date

If you use LPG, keep it separate and locked

If you have anything electrical make sure it's PAT tested


We can't afford to feed you - Bring your own food and cooking facilities

However Crew Brew will be serving tea, coffee & biscuits from Wednesday til Wednesday. Bacon Sarnies will be available in the mornings

(Certain HODs, as agreed prior to the event, including security & first aid will be given meal vouchers, to be collected from the site office)

For some advance set-up crew there will be an evening meal available in the Tea Rooms located in the Stable Yard - you'll need a token from Bee for this


Please would you ensure that anyone coming with your crew is aware that, if they are bringing any under 18 year olds, they have to be the parent or court appointed guardian of the children. Children without their parent will not be allowed on site.

At least one of the parents must also be properly registered on the House of Honey website where they can register their children in their records and buy them a kids crew ticket at £15 per child or £25 for teens. Failure to do this will mean they will be paying full kids price at the gate. Please make sure that children are registered with their tickets paid for by 6th July

We do this to make sure that we have details of everyone attending on our system - and so that we can provide enough facilities



For bands and artists that have a stage plan and/or channel list please email it now

If you don't usually need a channel list please let us know

Music - Noise levels

Unless you have an agreement with us music must be at background levels in your location (ask Daniel from production if in doubt). NO pumping sound systems will be allowed! We will need to be very strict on this because of the promises we have made to the Estate and to the Council.

Caterers Wristbands

We will have 2 wristbands relating to the Caterers:

  • Red Rip tag bands (Food ONLY) - These will be used for our hard working crew and some performers. Each rip tag should allow the bearer a plate of food (please collect these to settle up with Ben later and so that they are not reused)
  • Gold (Food and Drink) - only about 10 of these will be given out and only to KEY organizers and owners of the land. Please allow them free food and drink (within reason! - if you have a problem speak to Ben)


Please come to the site office on Monday morning to sort out finances before you leave. Ask for Bee or Angela
