Essential valuables can be left at the Property Lock-ups which are prominent around the Festival site. The locations are marked on Festival maps by a ‘keyhole’ logo. You can leave your belongings in safety, however large or small, and for whatever period of time you choose.
Property lock-ups are open 24 hours a day, and are free of charge to use. Soap and toilet rolls are distributed free of charge from the lockups.
The lockups open on Wednesday and close at 12 noon, on the Monday – so if you leave anything in the lockups make sure that you pick up your belongings before then. (Anything left behind after this time will have to be claimed from Waggonshed Welfare and may not be available until after 4pm.)
Challenge 21 wristbands
This year, the lock-ups will also be issuing ‘Challenge 21′ wristbands. The Festival operates a ‘Challenge 21’ policy for alcohol sales. If you look under 21, you will not be served alcohol unless you can prove you are over 18 – by presenting ID, or by wearing a ‘Challenge 21′ wristband. These will be available from the lock-ups, on presentation of a valid form of photo ID. The following are acceptable forms of ID:
- UK Driving Licence
- Valid Passport
- If you don’t want to bring your passport or driving licence, use a PASS ID. See http://www.pass-scheme.org.uk/ for details.
