Post-Concert – If you have parking included in your VIP Hospitality, you will be able to exit on to Winterstoke Road from the Wickes Car Park but only once it is safe to do so.

This may take around 90 minutes for walking crowds to disperse, so please do not be in a rush to leave at the conclusion of the concert. Take advantage of your hospitality areas which will remain open for an hour after the concert finishes.

Security stewards will marshal your safe exit from the Wickes Car Park.

There are three entry points to the stadium: Gates 1, 2 & 3.

Please make sure that you refer to your ticket which will outline which entrance you should use.

All tickets will be scanned on entry, with wristbands being distributed to pitch standing tickets. Please make sure that you wear suitable clothing in case of adverse weather.

Bag searches will take place upon arrival.

Bags must be smaller than an A4 size and water bottles (500ml or smaller) placed in a transparent plastic container. Umbrellas are not permitted.

There will be several access points to the pitch and stewards will be on hand to help you. These entrances are located throughout the concourses and will be clearly signposted. Wristbands will be checked upon entry to the pitch. Once the concert starts the access points into the concourse will be towards the back of the pitch at A8 & A9 – these will be the only access points until the end of the show.

There is a central pitchside bar located also at the back of the pitch (South Stand end) for additional drinks service.
