How to arrive at the venue
Rail disruption

Please note that there is planned industrial action across tube lines on Friday 25 November and rail lines on Saturday 26 November. Please check National Rail and TFL for updates and to help you plan your journey. See options on how to arrive at the venue.

Logistics and unloading

If you're arriving at the venue to unload or load your vehicle, we require you to book a time slot through an online vehicle booking system called Voyage Control. This will ensure the build-up and breakdown process is quicker and smoother for you. You will not be charged for this service.

Please plan your journey ahead, as failure to book in advance will result in your vehicle being turned away.
