Is your question about booking your place?
If I am accompanying my child on assault course, I assume we will both need a ticket but I can only purchase 2 adults or 2 child. Not one of each. If she is ASD do I still need to pay for the accompanying ticket?
Last year we booked a time slot. This year, you just seem to book for the course. How does it work with timings. Does everyone start at 9.30 or might there be a long queue, to start to run whenever you decide to come between 9.30 and 4.30?
Hey there, just to let you know you can still book a time slot just put a time you would like to race under estimated finish time. If you select at time between 10am and 4pm, please select a time on the half hour, i.e. 10, 10:30, 11, 11:30 etc. All the best!
when booking for a child and a parent accompanying do you have to book a separate course ticket for the parent also? i understand everyone needs a ticket for the festival area :) and i didn't see any age restrictions for the children but what is the recommended age range for the kids? thanks!
Hey there, just to let you know that adults will have to buy a ticket to accompany the child, this includes the festal ticket entry. In terms of age range thats recommend that children are between 6-14. All the best!
Hi the festival only tickets is that the set price for adults and children to attend the festival only ? thanks
