General FAQs

What happens if I lose my child?
If you see or have lost a child, head over to the Info Desk. If you have lost a child, our staff members will ask for a description (gender, age, defining features, their outfit for the day) to help others locate your child or children. We recommend writing your phone number on your child’s arm in felt pen or labelling their clothes to help with this process.

Where can I find lost property?
Lost property will be stored at the Info Desk. Check in with our team there to see if they have your lost property. If you realise you’ve lost something after the event has closed you will need to contact the venue directly, as all lost property will be left at the venue.

Can you page someone for me?
No, sorry. Our paging system is reserved for important event announcements only.

Is there cloakroom services?
No, sorry. None of our venues offer cloakroom services. Any valuables you have should be kept on your person or not brought into the venue.

Can I bring my own food and drink?
