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 clear it with security at the gate.
NB: Bring everything you might need with you including a bit of food. There will be subsidised crew meals available on site from GREEN FARM ROASTERS during set-up, for the duration of the party, and for take-down (you need to show your CREW WRISTBAND). Crew teas & coffees and snacks will be available free from Bill's Crew Brew. There will also be a Supermarket on site from Weds-Mon.
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 Crew Camper Van Pass (issued free at reception) will be allowed in the Crew camping area. If you prefer camp in the Main Camping field, login to your HoH profile > click on Buy Tickets > Buy a Main Area Crew camper van pass. If your camper is really big, please park at the edges of the field so you don't mess up everyone else's view. There is a preferred RV area marked. Power for a few camper vans may be available if we have any spare but you’ll need to negotiate a fee for this with Andy Walton (site power)
Please respect this request, Of course your darling doggie is adorable but it's part of our agreement with the Estate
WE DO NOT SUPPLY FREE POWER
Safety and total power load are carefully planned - your campsite wasn't included!
Electricity theft became a problem last year and at one point tripped out the whole event.
If you want to ask for a power hook up you need to agree it with Andy Walton (ask where his camp is if you don't know). IF he thinks he has enough capacity and can SAFELY provide you with the juice he'll let you know the drill. You will also need to give him £50 towards diesel. If you ignore this and steal our power expect to be unplugged and have your cables confiscated
If you need phone charging during the event go to 'Tom the Shop' supermarket
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
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
Subsidised Crew meals will be available from GF ROASTERS who will be open from Tuesday set-up til Tuesday take- down. Located opposite the main bar (you need to show your CREW WRISTBAND). 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.
It's a good idea to bring a bit of your own food.
The NEW MAIN BAR and Giri's Gurkha Curry will be open on Wednesday evening - PLEASE JOIN US for the Members and Crew pre party get together
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 £20 per child or £30 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 1st 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
(under 3s come free – just register them at reception when you arrive)
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.
