Naturally we pray to the Sun God for weeks before, but mother nature may not be kind to us, however all, but one of our arena’s are within Marquees so nice and dry whilst you party. The Bar Area is also under cover and luckily the land is very firm even in very wet conditions, so if its forecast rain please ensure you have something to keep you dry. You don’t need wellies !! If it gets very windy / inclement conditions we have enough capacity in all our covered arenas to keep you dry !!
