Ticket / Wristband Exchange Queries?

===================

You don’t *have* to print your ticket but phone screens are not as good for scanning because they can be shiny or sometimes screen protectors can be scuffed or not very clear.

If your phone doesn’t read very well you might suffer a bit of a delay and we may ask you to step out of line while we manually key in your ticket number.

If you can print, please do. It will help you get in faster.

===================

If you don’t have the official print-at-home eticket, you should expect to be asked for proof of ID.

If you can show the eticket on your phone that will probably help.

===================

If you don’t want to risk bringing your passport or driving license as proof of ID bring an old utility bill.

===================

We will not be checking ID as a matter of course unless security deem it necessary.

From a ticketing point of view, if your name does not appear on your print-at-home eticket, you should ensure you are in communication with the named person in case of any issues.

===================

If you have bought a ticket from someone whom you don’t know, you should ask yourself how many other copies they have sold. If the ticket is showing as “already entered” then you *will* need to buy a new one. No exceptions!

===================

The venue are likely to be enforcing the Wine & Spirit Trade Association “challenge 25” scheme (or similar), so as in any licenced bar you should carry ID as a matter of course if you think you might be challenged.

===================

Once you have your wristband you can expect to not have to show ID again at the door.

The Licensee however may spot check at any time, so if you’re prone to being asked to prove your age, please keep your ID handy.
