Hi Guys,

My 1st time going this year. I just wondered what facilities were available. I'm wondering about taking some food etc.

Dunno as they've moved it this year. But food at these things is often either expensive or takes ages to queue up for so probably not a bad idea ;)

I'm in a huff about the venue change and not going this year... please will you take lots of notes and report back?

Isn't it at addington this year? If so it's a really fab venue!
How cold does it get in the arena when just sitting spectating? I have been to Hartpury so many times I know exactly how many layers to take, but only been to Addington once and that was in the summer. I am guessing it will be fairly similar. :) x

Currently Cambridgeshire! (or where ever I fancy)!

I would imagine it would get quite cold so would definitely bring layers! I can't remember whether they have heaters

I am also in a huff as I would have gone if it had been at Hartpury but then again, I've been spoiled. TBH the facilities at Addington are!n't as good as Hartpury, I did a camp there three years ago. I'd take food and lots of layers

They do have heaters above the seats but I would take cushions and a fur throw or big coat. It gets very cold just sitting down with concrete under your feet.

Food there’s a decent canteen but it’ll be packed so would deffo take your own!

Addington has recently been taken over by new owners who have been improving it.
