For those attending the event, you’ll always be able to find help from any of our volunteers in their blue t shirts, or a committee member/trustee in red t shirts, who can direct you to the venues, tell you performance times, or whatever other assistance you may require. There may be limited capacity in the shield hall, but should you be going to see a friend or relative’s performance, then be sure to speak to a steward who will do their best to accommodate you.
