NORFEST: no public parking on site

Posted on

A message from RAF Northolt for those who have tickets for NORFEST 2017:

In the interest of ensuring a safe and fun day for all our friends and their families attending Norfest we are sorry to announce that public vehicles can no longer be admitted entry to RAF Northolt on Saturday 22 July.  This decision has not been taken lightly and follows clear advice from the Metropolitan Police. 

We apologise sincerely for any difficulties this will cause those currently intending to arrive by private vehicle, but ask now that all public parking tickets holders use public transport or other means to travel to the event and enter on foot.
   
In addition, all visitors will be requested to consent to enhanced security screening measures, including 100% bag searches.  All visitors are therefore kindly encouraged to bring a minimum of personal belongings, including bags, picnics etc, in order to facilitate a smooth entry to the event.  The event starts at 10.00am, but ticket holders will be now be admitted from 09.30am on account of these enhanced protection measures.  Anyone attempting to access to the event with a public car pass will be refused entry. 

These decisions have been made in the interest of the security and protection of everyone attending Norfest, following the recent tragic events in Manchester and London and after full consultation with the Metropolitan Police.  Those that have purchased car passes from See Tickets for the event will automatically receive full refunds. The offer to ‘Blue Badge’ holders remains and will still be able to enter RAF Northolt on the day in their vehicles and gain entry, provided they consent to full vehicle checks of their vehicles by security staff. ‘Blue Badge’ entry and security checks will now be via Crash Gate 3, at the end of Glebe Avenue, off the West End Road, between the A40 and the White House Gate entry to RAF Northolt; signs will be in place on the day to direct eligible traffic.

The nearest Underground station to the entry point is South Ruislip on the Central Line, or ‘Station Approach/South Ruislip Station’ on Bus Route E7.

Look out for further updates by following the RAF Northolt Twitter and Facebook pages as they are confirmed, and through local media such as GetWestLondon.
