Social Distancing Seating Arrangements (Standard Entry Tickets – Bring Your Own Seat): seating pitches will be laid out in front of the screen with 2m x 2m spaces provided for each group. Members of each group must be from the same family or social bubble. If you will be visiting with another group, or there are more than four of you, please arrange to arrive at the same time and meet up onsite so you can be allocated pitches close to each other. Adjoining pitches are not guaranteed, but we will try! Pitches will be allocated from front to back, on a first come, first served basis. Don’t forget to bring your own low-backed camping chair or deckchair!
Social Distancing Seating Arrangements (Premium Seats – Reserved Deckchairs): customers who have purchased premium deckchair seats will have seats pre-positioned at the front of the venue, reserved by name and distanced by us prior to arrival. Please do not move the seats. All deckchairs will have been cleaned and sanitised prior to use. We won’t be providing complimentary blankets to use with these seats this summer. Please feel free to bring your own blankets instead.
Using Aisles: there will be 1m+ through routes on all sides of each seating pitch to allow for arrival, departure and toilet trips. Please respect social distancing arrangements and each other when moving around at the event and follow instructions from event security and stewards. At the end of the show we’ll stagger exit, with the back rows leaving first, to avoid everyone heading for the exit route all at the same time. Please co-operate with us in this exercise.
