On the day
When you arrive on campus you will find Welcome Points located at the East Car Park and at the bus stop. Here you can grab a programme and our student ambassadors, wearing our Festival t-shirts, will be on hand to welcome and guide you. Our Student Ambassadors can also help families get around campus.
Baby changing facilities and quieter feeding areas will be available.
Pet dogs are not permitted at the Festival, with the exception of assistance dogs supporting those with a disability.
One thing we can’t plan for is the weather. Please check the forecast and come prepared.
Food and drink
As with any good festival we will have a range of refreshments to buy. From BBQ's and smoothie bikes, to candyfloss and test-tube cocktails! Our bars and eateries will be open on campus and can cater for a range of dietary requirements. You are also welcome to bring your own food as we have plenty of picnic areas.
