T-Shirts & Shuttles

It’s all kicking off here! Ticket holders can now take advantage of free shuttles every 30 minutes from the Centre to the Chipper on Saturday & Sunday. We also have shuttles for the lower river operating over the weekend at 10:15am (driver shuttle, no boats), 1.15pm (boats allowed) and 4.15pm (boats allowed). Shuttles are only available to ticket holders who display their wristband. No wristband, not shuttle. You’ll need to book your place on the shuttles for the lower river at reception.

T-shirts have now arrived and they’re selling out fast. Order yours online to be sure of getting one! (Paul can be seen modelling the small on the right, they’re not all that tight!!)
