Firepits, BBQs and campfires are not permitted at this event
Can I bring a gazebo, mini-marquee, or tent?
We cannot permit audience members to bring gazebos, mini-marquees or temporary structures of any kind as they are not covered by our insurance. However, we have a number of pre-erected gazebos which are available to hire. These can only be booked in advance of the event. If you would be interested in pre-booking a gazebo, please email us at email@example.com or book via our website or by calling 0121 472 6688 (24/7)
How does gazebo hire work?
A number of pre-erected gazebos are available to hire at this year’s event. These can only be booked in advance. Each gazebo is 3 x 3 metres with a roof and 3 wall panels. Audience members will still need an individual entry ticket if they are planning to use a gazebo. The gazebos do not include seating, tables or lighting, but you are most welcome to bring your own.
Gazebos can be booked either for the top tier of the park, giving you a great view of the whole event (but please note this location includes walking up a short incline) or to the side of the main event arena, for those who want to be closer to the stage.
Gazebos will be named according the hirer and a gazebo ticket will need to be shown to one of our staff at the start of the hire.
If you require more than one gazebo, we would be very happy to ensure your gazebos are located next to each other.
Please we cannot permit audience members to bring gazebos, mini-marquees or temporary structures of any kind as they are not covered by our insurance.
