Our Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE CAN I STAY?
Torquay and the surrounding towns (Paignton, Brixham, and Newton Abbot) have an abundance of hotels, guesthouses, B&B’s, caravan parks, holiday cottages, holiday parks and campsites. Buy your festival ticket and then book your accommodation separately. You don’t have to camp, but there are some very good camp sites that we can recommend.
WHERE DO I PARK?
If you’re staying for the weekend, you’ll be able to park at your Holiday Park, campsite or hotel and use the local bus service which will bring you close to the Stadium. Buses to Plainmoor, St Marychurch or Babbacombe will get you within walking distance. There are a few car parks in St Marychurch and there is limited off-road parking in the many streets around the Stadium. There is no parking at the Stadium, other than for people with a disability badge.
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
We are sorry but dogs aren’t allowed in to the Stadium.
WILL THERE BE FOOD & REFRESHMENTS ON SALE?
Yes, a wide choice of food will be available ranging from a sit down three-course meal in No.10s Restaurant to snacks in the Gulls Nest Bar and traditional comfort food from the catering outlets in the Stadium. Alcohol and other beverages will be on sale in the Gulls Nest Bar. Teas, coffees and soft drinks can also be purchased from the catering huts. You are advised to book in advance if you want a meal in the Restaurant.
WILL I HAVE A GOOD VIEW ?
Most definitely. The very best views of the stage will be in the VIP and Premium seats but any seat in the Bristow’s Bench Grandstand will give you a great view. If you buy a seat in the Family Stand, the view is from the angle rather than straight in front of the stage. The standing area is in front of the stage and offers a fantastic view.
