Journey & Schedule

Registration - Thurs 16th June 2022

Please bring along ID to check-in
(Bank card or any photo ID accepted)

We’ll register you electronically by name so please ensure your ID matches the name you’ve given us.

Coach Journey

All coaches are full and seating is first come first served so arrive early to secure seating near your group. 

We operate on Airport timing. Every year, a handful of attendees make their own way to Ascot because they were ‘running a little late’ … their coach left without them. 

Please leave ample time to arrive at the departure point.
