GENERAL CONDUCT

PLEASE NOTE: Parking is restricted in the area covered by the double yellow lines, the bays are for residents use and the use of the hotel patrons. If you are
towing a trailer that will not open while parked in this space, it can be backed into our car park area in the morning of the show. However, please ensure it is not
so far down as to block the fire exit, which is also the load in door.

When you arrive, please plug into the shore power and switch off your engine, we have neighbours, some with young children and the sound of a running engine can get a bit on the side of disturbing in the night.

Please refrain from emptying waste.

If it’s a party you are after, we can arrange guest entrance to the club should you arrive the day before your show, or even after and aren’t leaving til later.

We just need you to keep the noise down out there. Soundchecks must only take place if all rear fire doors are closed. The Garage is part of a mixed community of busy thoroughfare, local businesses and home life, we respect everyone equally, and ask for your understanding in these matters during your visit.

We look forward to working with you.
