There are several bars in the Arena.

We only allow sealed soft drinks under 500ml, as well as empty reusable water bottles of any size into the Arena.

Please refill your empty bottles at the water points inside the Arena for free.


Meeting And Information Points

We don’t have any official meeting points onsite, so when you do arrive arrange some key meeting points for if you happen to get lost. Try to choose locations that will not get too crowded and are easily located – day or night.

There is an Information Tent located in The Village which can act as an excellent location and provide help locating any other areas.

Water Points

There are tested drinking water points throughout the Arena which are free to use. If you notice any issue with our water points, let a member of staff know so that they can get it fixed.
