Pedestrian Access: £5 per person
Children under 16yrs of age go free when accompanied by a paying adult.

Premium Parking & Spectating
There are 100 parking spaces at Bowland Wild Boar Park that can be pre-purchased. Ticket holders will enter at Map 102 Reference 649/430 ½.
Spectator area opposite the Wild Boar Park entrance.
Exciting very fast flowing approach to a chicane then exit downhill through tighter bends.
This is the only car park available which is actually on the stage. The Wild Boar Park is open for refreshments throughout the day. There is approximately a 15-minute walk from the car park up a hill to the spectator area at the top. Pass holders can drop passengers off at the top before parking the car and between stages it will be possible to pick passengers up to go down to the park.
To access the parking area prior to the first run of the Long Knots stage ticket holders must be at the rendezvous point by 08:00. There will be an opportunity to access the stage prior to the second stage at approximately 11:15. No access will be permitted prior to the third run.
Similarly, there will be times when you will be allowed to exit the stage, but this will be under the strict control of the stage marshals.
Parking for the Long Knotts stage without pre-booking is available at Chipping Showground and this is described above.
The cost to park at Long Knots Wild Boar Park will be £20 per car (includes 4 adults).
Pay on the Day
This is controlled by the issue of barcodes which will be scanned at the access / rendezvous points and exchanged for parking passes. Once the barcode is scanned it becomes inactive ensuring that only one person can utilise the barcode so please do not be tempted to share barcodes or think that you can trick your way into a venue or onto a bus.
