There is NO onsite parking.

For everyone's safety and security, we will as usual have a team of professional security staff on site as well as first aiders.

  • Bars: will only accept vouchers.
  • Drinks vouchers can be purchased using a card or cash close to the entrance; Vouchers are priced at £1; Ales and Ciders are priced at 5 vouchers per pint ; 3 vouchers per ½ pint; Craft Beers are 6 vouchers.

The weather forecast is currently for a dry, sunny but very cold day. Our large marquee will be heated but this is Britain so be British and come prepared, but most important of all, come ready to have a great day out.
