We are not supplying lockers.

Where is the disabled parking?

This is at the Eversley Park Centre (LS25 6BA) – right outside the festival entrance.

Can I bring pets?

Visitors are welcome to bring their dogs, however, they must keep them on a lead at all times. The controller of the dog is responsible for the dog’s actions, must clean up any mess made by it and dispose of it in the dog bins that are on site.

With the exception of ‘assistance’ dogs, they will not be allowed in the food marquee.

There will be a ‘miniature farm’ on the site that will have small and young animals in penned areas and also a falconry display, we ask that those in control of their dogs consider the effect that their pet may have on those animals and on the other visitors and act responsibly.

Can I bring my own chairs?

There will be limited seating available on the Eversley Park site so visitors are welcome to bring their own chairs.  However, we do not have any lockers or storage facilities for your items should you wish to visit them. Because of the Health and Safety requirement to be able to evacuate buildings and structures (marquees etc) quickly, there may be some restrictions on taking large and bulky items with them.

Are bikes, scooters, roller blades etc permitted in the festival?

Because of the restricted space and the risk to visitors, cycling in the event area is not be permitted. Eversley Park is laid to grass and as such is probably not a suitable surface for scooters and roller blades. Children’s use of scooters and roller blades should be closely monitored and supervised by their responsible adults.

Outside of the Festival area, adjacent to the Eversley Park Centre, is a skate park that will remain open and accessible during the Festival. Please take care when using the facilities.

Will there be ‘no parking’ signs down the streets near the Eversley Park Centre? e.g. Athelstan Court.

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to be able to provide signage or more importantly the power to restrict parking on the residential estates in the vicinity of the Festival site. However, we are trying our best to ‘manage’ visitor parking by providing adequate car parking for visitors, providing clear signage to those car parks and by providing a free shuttle bus service from those car parks to the venue. Additionally, we are also providing a number of parking spaces for ‘blue badge’ holders at the Eversley Centre.

We do appreciate that it is inevitable that there will be some car drivers who will ignore all the signage and car parking provisions and park their vehicles in places that the organisers of the event and residents would prefer them not to park. If this does happen, please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused.
