FOR A SAFE AND HAPPY DAY AT VILLAGE GREEN 2017
Extra security measures have been put in place this year at Village Green, working with the police and our security provider. These are to maximise public safety and the safety of our performers, crew and volunteers following the recent tragic events in Manchester and London.
Working closely with the authorities we have put in place all necessary measures, but festival goers can also play a big part in helping to keep Village Green safe and secure, so we’d very much appreciate it if you’d read and digest the following messages.
PLEASE PACK LIGHT
The new measures include the searching of ALL bags and pushchairs. You can really help us by travelling light and not bringing large bags, trolleys or rucksacks. We would ask everyone to be prepared (bags open), patient and to co-operate with any security requests.
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY
These extra security measures will make getting in to the event slower than usual and there will be queues. It would be a great help if you could plan for this, allow extra time for arrival and entry, and work with us to make it speedy and pleasant as possible.
BUY YOUR TICKET IN ADVANCE
it’s cheaper (saves you a fiver!), and means you can be inside the event much faster and helps us and you avoid more queuing. Book Tickets HERE.
Alcohol is not permitted. You may bring water and soft drinks but they must be in sealed plastic bottles or unopened cartons. Picnics are encouraged, but please be aware that any sharp utensils will be removed during searches.
There will be plenty of security staff and police around, so if you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to them.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to Village Green.
