    Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

    Any one below 16 needs to be accompanied by an adult.

    What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

    A small amount of on street parking (free at the weekends) but buses go along City Road, (number 5) and loads drop off at nearby Stokes Croft.

    How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

    Email him

    Can I just turn up?

    That’s fine but we are limited to the number of people we can fit into the darkroom (14) so there may be some waiting.
