Event information

What do I need to bring?

As the event will go on until 9.30pm we advise you to bring along some warm clothing as the weather may turn cold late on. You can also bring picnic rugs and your own food and drink (but no glassware, please see conditions of entry).

The tickets are general admission tickets only. Guests are welcome to bring chairs to the event but we would ask that no tables are brought onto the event site and that chairs are positioned taking in the consideration the views and space of other guests.

Site facilities

There will be a variety of multi-cultural food and refreshments available in the park on the evening and there will also be an onsite bar selling beer, wine and spirits. There will also be toilets and baby changing facilities on site.


A limited amount of spaces are available for wheelchair users in our special hard surface viewing area but these must be booked in advance.

A hearing loop will also be fitted in a designated signposted area.
