Quiet hour tickets

For the first time in 2024, we're offering Quiet Hour tickets. These allow you to enter from 9am on Sunday morning. We have a limited number of these tickets and they're intended for anybody who would prefer to avoid a large crowd.

We won't ask you why you're selecting this kind of ticket, but they are intended for people who struggle in a crowd. Please don't choose this kind of ticket if this doesn't apply to you.

Although quiet hour runs from 9am - 10am, you are able to stay after 10am. You can also leave and return later if you'd like to - Sunday afternoons are generally quieter than other periods during the event.

You can bring a carer with you if you need one, and they don't need to book their own ticket.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.


If you've booked a ticket but can no longer attend, you can ask for a refund up to seven calendar days before the event.
