About Us


In response to the national threat level, we ask that you ‘travel light’ and bring only essential items when coming to Watersmeet, leaving large bags at home if at all possible.

We ask visitors to arrive in good time before the show, and to remain vigilant and report anything that seems unusual to a member of staff. This enhanced level of security is something that most venues throughout the UK are implementing following general security advice from the National Counter Terrorism Security Office.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.
