FAQs:

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Ambassadors enclosure is a licenced bar close to the river and therefore not suitable for young children. We will allow children twelve years and older as part of a family.

The walk from the station is 15 minutes. Walk through the town, across the bridge and follow the road behind the Stewards and Public enclosures.

We are positioned right next to Mahiki
