The Summer Ball
On arrival you will be given a cup token and a drinks voucher. You can exchange both the voucher and token at the Thatchers tent, where you will receive your cup filled with a free drink!
If you choose not to collect your free drink you can use your cup token to get your first cup at any of the other bars. Please note the drinks voucher is only redeemable at the Thatchers bar.
It is essential that you wear your wristband at all times as this will be checked at the entrance into different venues.
