The main walkways and entrances to the field are lit, however, there are areas in the field which maybe dark, so we recommend you bring a torch with you.

This is a family event but we do not recommend bringing children aged 3 or under. This is due to the large crowd, noise (both music and fireworks), darkness and potentially slippery underfoot conditions. If you choose to bring children 3 then this is at your own risk.
