eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

Gate openings - NE Coach

Recommended Posts

I should have looked into this before I bought my National Express coach tickets but alas, I didn't.

In people's experience, do the gates ever open earlier than 8am? I've booked a coach that is due to arrive at 4:30am and I'm just wondering how long I can expect to be queuing outside.

Yes - usually earlier (any time from ~6:15 onwards is realistic), but sometimes later if there's a H&S issue preventing the gate/site from being signed off.

Gate teams shifts start at ~0545 and they have to be in place at all gates, the site has to be signed off (though that should have happened the night before) and all gates have to be signed off as ready (stocked with wristbands, safe, fully staffed etc.)

They tend to open around 7am.
