  1. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Labour's stance one of "no comment"? I feel their pain, as they can't come out with a specific position on Brexit (bad for various seats) but it doesn't help people who might want to drift away from the Conservatives.
  2. Have you done it before? How quickly can you get a taxi late at night? I've heard that at some times, the taxi shortage can be desperate. I'm curious, as I can imagine there are a lot of people staying "off-site" who might need a taxi, and I've only ever used them to arrive on Friday (children from school) and have heard some horror stories from the drivers about the late-night rush.
  3. "More Information needed". When do you arrive? What are you hoping to achieve (specific fields, going with the flow, etc)? Hire-car, as jfaragher has said, on the surface would be the best option.
  4. What time do the buses start on the Wednesday, and how busy are they at the start? One of the disadvantages of Campervan East is the huge lines at opening time, with entry taking hours first thing. I'm curious as to how Bath & West compares.
  5. I tried that, but it seemed to me he's something off TV, and got into an argument on social media? That's all based on his "wiki" entry, which I do admit does bear some editing fingerprints all over it. Google just gives me load of "media" "articles" saying the same thing. I feel like I've missed something here!
  6. Sorry to be dense, but a) who is he, and b) why is he a homophobe?

    Lock ups

    Well, shows what I know! I never knew that! Brilliant things they are (the lockups) - I don't know why more people don't use them.

    No envelopes, that I know of. Having said that, I think you could literally give them a wad of cash wrapped in an elastic band, and it would be fine. I think they'd enjoy the challenge of proving the idea that this would be wrong, wrong. For your own peace of mind though, just put it in a bag. You could take almost anything and they'd take it. Be-aware though that it's treated like one item, regardless of the content. I took a loaded cart one year, and if I wanted one beer (for arguments sake. Like who'd want one beer!?), I had to book out the whole cart. They'd (sensibly) not take the beer off the top of the cart even though we could all see it. Cart out, beer off, cart back in again. No argument then about who touched what etc. Very fair. Can't recommend them enough.
  9. Much smaller, and further away from things in the festival itself (except Cinemageddon). Much quicker to enter the site. No "hill-of-death", but it is all uphill (gentle but long slope) from the railwayline. Closest "main" areas would be Arcadia / Park. If you spend the majority of your time there, then West would be better. If you spend your time in Theater / Acoustic then less so.
  10. I believe they stopped some showers on site due to water supply issues at various stages this year.
  11. I don't think it is quite as simple as this. There are posts on here from people asking about how do they get cheap alcohol locally, for example. The Tesco in Shepton is clearly the closest, physically. There are even buses. But, time, and time again, the advice you read on here is "don't bother", "it's too far". Which, from a logistical point of view, it is. It might be 15min in a car in October, but Festival time? At least 2 hours. (1 & some, if you are lucky, and the bus times align to when you arrive). That's one-way. You can see why people say "don't bother" to Tesco. Off-site for a hair-cut? I'd be advising allow 5 hours return (from the main action). I'd be interested in hearing if I am wrong.
  12. Lekiddo, Lord of the Lobsters. Hope he's there, great fun!
  13. Is it really that expensive to hire a camper for the festival? I have my own, so have never looked, but have seen people on here say it's expensive, and others say it's not. Curious, is all.
  14. You park up in a row, in the order that you drive in. Imagine parking for a fete or that sort of things - stewards pointing you to the next spot along in a line. You'll be given space around you, and they usually ask which side the awning is on so they don't put someone too close that you cannot use it. One ticket for one van. Theoretically, the tickets will be checked - they have a name on them, and that person must be present with their festival ticket. It is not heavily enforced, but I was asked last year so they could check.
  15. I have two different passports though (legitimate ones), so I could double my chances?
