Wanna help out as a marshall? Are you in the bike industry and want to be at the Weekender? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you some info.
You can park in the car park at the bottom of the hill but you can’t take your vehicle into the quarry. There will be a landrover on hand to help with ferrying of camping kit up the hill from this time on Friday.
Only organisers and authorised trade vehicles will be allowed into the quarry.
The lower car park will be patrolled by security guards for the duration of the weekend.
Camping is in the main arena. There will be marshals on hand to guide you away from the areas you can’t pitch your tent. Please be aware that this is a quarry. You will be able to drive pegs in a bit but make sure you bring a decent carry mat or airbed. It’s rocky! Cos it’s a quarry!
Don’t fancy camping? For a list of recommended alternative accommodation nearby email email@example.com and we’ll send you some info.
There will be toilets and catering in the main arena.
