All the questions and all the answers right here in one place.
We have updated our car parking tickets this year as a single entry ticket only. This means you can access the car park once with your car park pass. If you leave the festival car park and you drive back in, you will have to pay a re-entry fee of £5 each time. This is to help ease the flow of traffic on external roads and help protect roadways within the estate.
