Gates open at 3pm and close at 6pm, this allows a good window slot for entry, we do recommend getting to us as early as possible, the earlier you arrive, the better position you will enjoy and the earlier you will able to leave as all car park exits are via the front.

Can I reserve a car space in advance?

No, we cannot reserve spaces in advance. Our team will assign you a space on arrival.

If you arrive in a large vehicle/SUV or similar you may be positioned to the sides, however, you will still have a great viewing position. Please help us by informing us if you have a ‘high car’ by ticking the box when booking.

Can we get out of our vehicles?

We request that you stay in your car until the fireworks start unless you need to visit the toilet or catering facilities. If you do so, please always wear a face mask/covering and observe social distancing guidelines.

When the firework display begins, you can watch the spectacle from your car or from immediately in front of your vehicle, again observing social distance guidelines.

There will be several catering options available at the event offering hot food and drinks, further information will be announced in advance of the event and provided on the night.  We ask that guests take any rubbish from eating and drinking home to dispose of or recycle.

Are there toilet facilities?

These will be supervised and cleaned regularly during the event.  We ask that where possible unless you are taking a small child that only one person uses a toilet cubicle at any one time. Please wash and sanitise your hands.


Is there wheelchair access?

The site does have wheelchair-accessible toilet facilities. We must stress that the event parking will be mainly on sloping, uneven grassed areas. Those who use a wheelchair or with limited mobility may find access to toilet and catering facilities at the event difficult.

Can I keep my engine running?

Once parked we would prefer that you do not keep your engine running, in the interest of the environment and comfort of other site users. We advise warm clothing instead. Please be aware that we do not have facilities on-site to jump start your car if your battery is flat.


How many people can I bring?

The price of your ticket is per car not per person. Providing that everyone fits safely in a seat and your car does not have more people than it legally allows. We position vehicles so that everyone can have a good view of the display however, ultimately this depends on the vehicle you arrive in and who sits where is up to you. Anybody found not adhering to this rule may be asked to leave the site.

 

What happens when the show is over?

Our Security team will be there to direct cars to the exit safely. We request that you do not move your car until directed to do so that we can exit everybody safely and quickly. If you have any trouble with your vehicle and are unable to move, please remain stationary until all cars have departed and our team will be able to assist.
