Our Top Tips for a safe and friendly JAE!
Our security staff are there for your safety – please co-operate with them as they work to keep us all safe and sound.
Get to know the people who are camped around you. It makes for a nicer environment and it means you’ll be familiar with who should be coming and going in your area.
We don’t accept any discrimination towards any individual or groups of individuals. If you see or experience anyone undermining this - no matter the severity - please report it immediately to one of our onsite staff.
Carry a torch with you or enable the torch on your phone to use for when it gets dark.
Wear suncream and drink plenty of water, especially if participating in the outdoor IKO games. All the taps around the Showground site are drinking water.
We have communal facilities on site (showers, sinks and toilets). Please use these facilities properly with consideration of other users.
Moving around site
No speeding. When arriving/leaving the showground or unloading/packing up please observe the 5mph speed limit and use hazard lights at all times.
Roller blading, skateboarding or cycling is only permitted in uncrowded areas and during daylight. Go Karts, Mini-Moto's and Quad bikes are not permitted to be used except with permission from the Organisers.
