ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE DAYS
THE ALPHA AND OMEGA...
All your arrival instructions will be sent to you via email, so make sure you check your inbox before you leave to come to Momentum! We'll send you your wristbands just before the event so you should get them in the post around the start of July.
So you know, arrival day (or Day 1) is Friday 22nd July.
Momentum finishes at midnight on Tuesday 26th July, but most people stay around overnight and leave for home the following morning (though no venues will be open). If you do stay overnight, then we'd be really grateful if you got off on your travels before 9.00am.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Thousands of people will be arriving on site on the day Momentum starts. As part of the arrival instructions you receive, you will be given an arrival time slot depending on where you’re coming from. Sticking to this will really help keep traffic jams on the surrounding roads to a minimum and speed up your entry to site!
WHERE DO I NEED TO GO FIRST?
When you arrive, head to the village you've been allocated (detailed on the letter you'll receive with your wristband). Find a nice spot for your tent and say hello to your village host who will be there to answer questions you might have. Once you’ve set up you’ll need to move your car to the main car park. If you’ve paid in full then you should have your event wristband already, so fix it on your wrist and you’re free to enjoy the event! Pick up a copy of the event programme from Info for £2.50 and get plotting your stay...
I HAVEN'T GOT MY WRISTBAND!
If you didn’t get your wristband then make sure someone else doesn’t have it (wristbands will be sent to the ‘CONTACT’ on each booking) and give us a call to see what the query might be. Wristbands are ONLY sent out to those who’ve booked and paid in full so if you don’t receive one then it’s likely there’s a query or money still outstanding...
DO I NEED TO REGISTER?
If you already have a wristband you don't need to register. Once you arrive you only need to come to Info if there is a query on your booking, you have outstanding fees, haven't got your wristband or you haven't booked on yet! If you’ve got a bit more time then see the booking section for details on how to pay off the balance of your booking BEFORE you come to site!
YOU NEED TO HAVE BOOKED & PAID IN FULL!
ONLY those people who have booked and paid in FULL prior to arrival, will be able to collect wristbands from the wristband exchange. The wristband exchange is open until 8pm; after that you'll be a late arrival (see below). See the booking section for details on how to pay off the balance of your booking before you come to site to make arrival day a breeze for you!
CHANGES, CANCELLATIONS & SUBSTITUTIONS
It's by far the best option to sort out any payments, substitutions or cancellations before you get to Momentum. Once you arrive you will need to do this in Info – and you may need to queue.
Call 0303 333 1333 to speak to a member of our team, or email full details to firstname.lastname@example.org to sort out any issues before you set off!
If you arrive late on Day 1 but you DO have your wristband then you don’t need to worry! Just pop your tent up in the right spot and head to the main meeting (running from 7-9.30pm ish). If you don’t have a wristband then please arrive before 7pm so we can sort out your queries.
I'M ARRIVING LATE & HAVEN'T PAID
If you arrive late (after 8pm) and haven't paid in full, head to Comms to purchase a £10 ‘no access to venues’ or a £15 ‘access’ wristband for the evening (both of these passes expire at the end of Day 1). These passes are refundable on confirmation of your booking by the Info team the next day when you can pay off your balance and pick up your wristband.
If you are volunteering on team for the week then you will receive confirmation and arrival instructions by email and then you’ll collect your team badge and event wristband at your first team meeting (as explained in the arrival instructions email that you will receive). For more information on serving on a team at Momentum check the teams section of our site...
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
Please bring with you your event wristband (sent to the group leader on each booking) and it might be handy to have a copy of your booking paperwork in case there are any problems. If you’ve paid but not received your pass then try and bring a copy of the payment confirmation and even a bank statement to say that money’s been taken – this will all save time on arrival.
- A copy of your email booking confirmation
- Some photographic ID
- A tent (tent pegs and mallet)
- Food (and something to cook with/in/on)
- Clothes (including waterproofs and suncream)
- Bible and notepad
- Some cash (the nearest cash point is at the supermarket down the road so bring enough to get you through the first couple of days at least...)
- Your phone charger - we'll have free re-charging points so you can stay juiced-up!
