Important information

  • There is hand sanitizer readily available throughout the location, including within the toilets.
  • There will be toilets on-site, all of which will be regularly cleaned.
  • Aside from the potential for a toilet trip, you don’t even need to leave your car. Refreshments are available on-site. However, you can bring your own snacks if you want, perhaps even a comfy pillow, and enjoy the screening from the comfort of your own vehicle.
  • When arriving at the entrance gate you will be required to show a copy of your ticket so that our stewards can scan the QR code. This can either be a printed copy or shown on a mobile device.
  • In order for you to hear the documentary in your vehicle, you will be handed a Bluetooth speaker at the entrance gate. All Bluetooth speakers will be individually cleaned and stored safely.
  • Gates will open half an hour before the screening. Please do not arrive more than 30 minutes prior to the showing to avoid congestion of the local area.
  • The programme will be shown on a large screen that will be strategically placed at the venue, ensuring everyone has a clear view.
  • Smaller vehicles will be parked closer to the front with larger vehicles at the back to ensure everyone can see. If you have a larger vehicle please do not try arriving first as you will still be parked further back.
  • Please do not attend if you or a member of your household feel unwell or have symptoms of Covid-19 or if you have been advised to self isolate after coming into close contact with someone who has Covid-19 symptoms.
