On Foot

We ask you not to walk to the event on foot as the roads are busy and there are no footpaths, so it’s not safe. We especially ask you not to use Longwater Retail Park to be picked-up or dropped-off; our on site facilities for Buses, Taxi’s and Public Pick-up & Drop-off are well set up and clearly sign posted so it’s quicker, easier and safer for you to use those.
