THE EVENT

But please don’t get stupid, as anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated either & you will be ejected without refund.

Warning: exposure to loud & excessive music may be damaging to your hearing.

Parents are reminded there are areas of the site, especially immediately in front of the main stage and our other music arenas, which are inappropriate for some people, including young children.

Strobe lighting & flash photography may also be used at the event.

Old Elizabethans Memorial Playing Fields is a green field site & we aim to keep it that way, so please help our cleaning team by keeping the event tidy. Please recycle as much waste as you can & make sure litter is thrown away in the bins & bin bags which are be provided on the day.
