• Stewards located in the camping field and arena. They can direct and advise you, and are your first port of call in an emergency, be it a medical or security issue.

• Please do not take up too much space when setting up camp. Please do not bring a gazebo. They needlessly take up valuable camping space (and there are plenty of more interesting places to sit at the Festival than just outside your tent).

• Please do not leave any kit or rubbish behind when you leave the festival and castle estate.
