Festival Gates open at 11.30am. The event is expected to finish at 10.30pm and Festival Gates will close at 11.30pm. Park Gates close at midnight (subject to change). Wollaton Park will be open from 9am and the on-site box office will open at 10.30am. Entrance to the festival arena will not be permitted until 11.30am. Our car park will close at midnight.

The Main pedestrian entry gate is the Wollaton Road entrance. Other entrances: Lime Tree Avenue (off Middleton Boulevard) Beeston Lodge entrance (off Derby Road A52). The vehicle entrance is via Lime Tree Avenue (Off Middleton Boulevard A514). If you need to collect your ticket from the box office, you need to enter the festival via the Main gate of the grounds via the Wollaton Road entrance (you do not need to visit the box office if you already have a ticket).

To reduce foot traffic at entrances, we do not allow pass outs as standard. We allow pass outs for medical emergencies, adults taking children home before later returning, going to a car in the car park and other reasons deemed reasonable by gate supervisors.

All children aged 0-10 will be issued with a wristband. We ask that you write a mobile number of a parent or guardian at the festival to contact if they are separated and a code word only you and your child will know on the inside of the wristband.

Children aged 11 and over and vulnerable adults can also pick up a wristband at the lost children stall inside the festival site to write contact details on as above, these can be used in the event they are separated from their parents/guardians.

On the day we will have our Splendour Squad, Welfare Officer and Security staff who will be able to help you if you need assistance.
