WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO THE FINAL FLING? DO I NEED I.D.?

You will need your ticket or event band and your TUSC (Teesside University Student Card) or ID. All persons attending the event will be expected to bring a PASS approved ID card, driving licence or passport as proof of age. We will be asking for ID at all bars, so if you are asked for ID but can’t produce it, you won’t be served!

 

CLOAKROOM

We don’t want you to leave any valuables or personal belongings unattended. The cloakroom will be open from 12 noon, charging £1.50/bag & £1/any other item. You can return to your items as many times as you like.

 

FOOD

Hot and cold food will be available all day & night on site, check out what’s on and where using the site map in this booklet! Will it get cold? We can’t control the weather so bring yourself something warm and leave it in the cloakroom for later when you feel the chill.

 

FIRST AID

Take care of yourself! If you need medical attention throughout the day, for any reason, we have a dedicated team of first aiders on site. They can be found on the site map in this booklet and by asking any member of staff at the event. If you’re planning to drink alcohol please do it sensibly and try to drink plenty of water too.

 

FENCES

They’re not just for show! We have to control entry for the safety of everybody. Anybody caught trying to get on site using anything other than the designated entrance will have their wristband removed and be asked to leave. There is one main gate for entry to and exit from the event. You’ll find it on Victoria Road near the Olympia Building.

 

HOW MUCH IS IT TO GO ON THE FAIRGROUND RIDES AT THE EVENT

NOTHING until 8pm... We’ve included them in your ticket price for the day because we're lovely, lovely people. Please be aware after 8pm you will need to pay to ride.

 

SHOULD I DRINK BEFORE THE EVENT?

This is entirely up to you but we will not allow anyone into the event who is intoxicated so our advice is not to pre drink. Drinks prices are very reasonable with a selection of pints, bottles and spirits with mixers starting from £2.50 all day and night.

 

WILL YOU BE SEARCHED ON THE GATE?

Yes, the security team will be overseeing searches to ensure illegal drugs and alcohol do not get into the event. If you are in possession of illegal drugs, the onsite police team may arrest you.

 

DO I NEED CASH?

It’s better to be prepared. We do not take card payments at any bar or food stall. We have a cashpoint on-site but expect long queues.

 

CAN I BRING ALCOHOL TO THE EVENT?

No, containers with ANY liquid won’t be allowed in.

 

CAN I GET A REFUND?

Sorry, we do not refund event tickets. If you really can’t make it why not gift it to a friend or resell it? Remember, you can’t resell your ticket for more than the original face value.
