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

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
