Safety

We are grateful for the help of Thames Valley Police and Ascot Fire Brigade.

If you suffer any injury, please seek out the trained volunteer staff at the First Aid Station. They are always very pleased to help.

Please help us by being responsible. Drive carefully. Please do not cross any barriers erected for your safety.

For your own safety, we do not allow you to bring alcohol or your own fireworks to the event. This includes sparklers: they are too dangerous where there are crowds and excited children.

Please follow directions. We reserve some spaces for disabled people, please ask any Official Marshall (who will be wearing high visibility jackets). Please do not park in front of any gates, which may be entry and exit points for emergency vehicles. If you have special needs see our special needs section below or contact us.

See our FAQ page for help with making your visit a pleasant one.
