Tickets must be purchased in person from the club and photo id provided. Approach roads to the club and in the vicinity will be permit parking only, which is included in the price. You are not permitted to take your own food/drink into the establishment, should you do so you will be ejected. Full details here

2. The Vale of Glamorgan Council will be providing a parking area for enthusiasts at the Porthkerry Caravan site, which is at the end of runway 30. Temporary road signs will direct visitors to the site.
The car park will open 14:00 2nd September and 06:00 Wednesday 3rd - Friday 5th September.
