Some Advice for our Guests

Ø Site tokens designate Event Staff, Day-trip guests and Feasters separately and will be worn at all times. Upon re-entering the building, be courteous to Gate by showing your token.. No exceptions.
Ø Please be prepared for the cold and possibly bring lap blanket if you plan on being in any of the outdoor tents. While heated, guests still must travel from building to tent and back.
Ø Guests who cannot sit on a steel chair for long durations, may bring their personal camp chairs to assist themselves, but need to be responsible in setup, moving and transporting chair.
Ø There will be no food available until the feast is served. If you are not a Feaster, then packing drinks, snacks and/or a cold meal is advisable. The Event Stewards will have a list of local amenities and restaurants in the area for your convenience at Gate. If you would like the list ahead of time, please email the Event Stewards.
Ø The site has an unmanned cloakroom, but no area to hold belongings of any size or quantity.
Ø Theatre seating will be set up for Court in the afternoon. Tables will not be set up until the designated time for the feast and then removed for a reset of theatre seating for Royal Court.
