Please note: to manage the flow of visitors, we ask you to please book your tickets in advance. We plan to have a box office on site but there will be fewer booking windows than normal so queues could be longer than normal. 

It will be possible to book online via our website throughout the duration of the event, but again we ask you to please book as early as possible.
