CREW INFO READ THIS!!

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

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

It's our responsibility not to do any damage - we must leave the park exactly as we find it.

ARRIVAL AT STANFORD HALL

NO ENTRY AFTER DARK – NO EXCEPTIONS

COVID STUFF

We know many people have concerns over the way some live events have been operating. Making sure people feel as safe as possible is our priority. We'll have a strict covid policy at the gate based on tests rather than vaccinations - these will be the same for all crew and guests.

EVERYONE will need to show Security proof of a Lateral Flow test taken within 12 hours of arrival; this can be the test stick or confirmation on your phone that a negative test result has been uploaded to the NHS website.

RE-ADMISSION IS TO BE AVOIDED IF AT ALL POSSIBLE

Make sure that once on site you don't need to leave until the end of the event or your specific job is over. If you absolutely must leave the site you will need to show proof of a NEW lateral flow test to gain re-admission.

Please bring a box of spare tests with you. Available free from any pharmacy or the NHS website NHS TEST

NB: Bring everything you might need with you including food. There will be subsidised crew meals available on site from Asterix café during set-up, for the duration of the party, and for take-down. Crew teas & coffees will be available free from Bill’s Crew Brew. There will also be a Supermarket on site from Weds-Mon.

Extra red and green silicone wristbands will be available at reception for those who want to signal contact/proximity preferences.

Wear GREEN if you're happy to be in close contact with others

Wear RED if you want to keep a bit of distance

CREW CAMPING

Crew can camp anywhere in the main camping area or the crew areas

If your vehicle is not essential, please move it to the car park as soon as you've dropped off your stuff. You will be given a timed temporary pass that allows you 2 hours to do this.

If your vehicle is essential (REALLY) and needs to be at your base or in the essential vehicle mini car park over the event days, you need to come get an essential vehicle pass from the site office

Don't camp or park in the access lanes or pitch tents too close together in case the emergency services need access.

CAMPING UNDER TREES IS DANGEROUS

Many of the trees are very old and branches often fall off without warning. You could easily be killed if one lands on you. If you still decide to camp under a tree leave at least a 3 meter gap from the trunk and understand that it's ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Crew live-in vehicles with a Camper Van Pass (issued free at reception) will be allowed in the crew areas and the Main Camping field and may camp alongside mates in tents - If your camper is really big please park at the edges of the field so you don't mess up everyone else's view

CAMP FIRES

  • You may have a fire by your camp but you MUST use a FIRE DISH
  • Firewood will be available for sale from the site office
  • You may take fallen wood from the woods - but PLEASE don't steal wood from the farm
  • Don't leave any trace of ash, or singed grass, or digging
  • Leave the park exactly as you find it

FIRE SAFETY

  • Tent fires are extremely dangerous - and very fast
  • Get out - Stay out - Alert Security, Site office or Paramedics.
  • Stay calm - move quickly - get everyone out and clear from the area.
  • Ensure that tents, campers or caravans are kept at least 3 metres apart.
  • 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

CREW BREW & CREW MEALS

Bring your own food and cooking facilities – be as self-reliant as possible.

Subsidised Crew meals will be available from the Asterix Café will be running Mon set-up til Weds take-down. Located in the main performance area where the Chill-out tent used to be.

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

Crew Brew will be serving tea, coffee & biscuits from Tuesday til Tuesday. Egg, Bacon or Cheese sarnies will be available in the mornings.

CREW KIDS

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 17th Sept.

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

The well-being of kids on site is an absolute priority - it's up to all of us to keep our eyes open and get involved if you see a child looking vulnerable or lost.
