Arena opening time on Thursday?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what time the arena is likely to open on the Thursday?

I was planning on arriving before midday to get a good pitch and avoid the queues, but then am I likely to pitch the tent and find myself sat around for the rest of the day with nothing to do?!

Think it was a tad earlier last year, maybe around 3ish?

We do exactly what you are intending every year, get landed pitched and then sit in the guaranteed sunshine with a few beers and a curry, getting to know the neighbours etc

...the calm before the storm (sometimes quite literally!!!)

Sounds good, thanks.  I'll look forward to sharing some of that guaranteed sunshine with you!

Is the beer and curry something that you've brought with you, or are there food and drink establishments available before the arena opens?

we always bring a handsome supply of tent beers and cans of aldi gin&tonics for the lady wife.

+ we make a curry the night before and reheat in the morning in one of those decent retain the heat pots which we also wrap in tea towels, same with some rice. been doing the same thing for 5+ years now. 

Saying that both the village green (which is outside arena in main camping) food places are open before the arena (toasties, baguettes, pizza & burgers unless someone can correct me???) There used to be a big canopy bar in the village green too but not sure if it was there last year?

I think I've read that each campsite will have food outlets, it was canny that year in emperors when you could get pizza and it had seating under a tarp/canopy type thing (hazy memories!)

So we must have a whole Thursday lineup apart from the headliners to come then

From what people have said and the lack of anything otherwise from organisers its looking more like thats it for the Thursday. Sure there'll be something on in Chai Wallahs as well but main stage looks like a masive downgrade compared to last year.

Craig Charles 19:45-21:00

Gerry Cinnamon 18:15-19:15

Micky P Kerr 17:00-17:45

Lost Colours 16:30-17:15
