Loading, Unloading and Parking
Please phone the Site Supervisor number before arrival.
Drivers with light equipment capable of being carried 100 metres are asked to load and unload on the Inner Circle, near to The Regent’s Bar & Kitchen. If material needs to be driven to the Bandstand please contact the Park office at email@example.com
The Band can apply for a parking permit at least a few weeks in advance of playing by contacting the park office at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org The permits will allow vehicles carrying equipment to park in available pay and display bays, however the Park does not allow parking on yellow lines. At weekends it can be difficult to find a bay, therefore you will need to allow 30 minutes extra time to find a bay on Chester Road or The Outer Circle Road after unloading your equipment.
The only coach parking at £65.00 may be available at London Zoo. Phone: 0344 – 225 – 1826. Website: www.zsl.org Email: email@example.com for more information. Coaches are not allowed in the Park except with a special permit.
The Regent’s Park Landscape Maintenance contractor idverde will switch the power on and place up to 40 chairs on the bandstand for your use provided this has been agreed in advance. Two speakers are provided with two wireless microphones and two wired microphones for use to make announcements and a singer. A Quitar can also be plugged into the speakers. Any other sound equipment will have to be provided by the bands.
The bands will supply their own music stands. There is a one hour break between performances to allow sufficient time to remove one bands equipment and the other to setup their equipment. Could be a windy day so provide a fixing for the music sheets to the bandstand.
There are no changing facilities, lockers, safes or toilets at the bandstand . Therefore, musicians need to arrive dressed for the performance and should secure valuables on their person. The nearest toilets are in The Regent’s Bar & Kitchen which can be very busy or near to Chester Gate in Queen Mary’s Gardens (a fee of 20p is required).
Bands should discuss the risks of performing in bad weather with the Site Supervisor and the Royal Parks Duty Manager. All band members should make sure they are well hydrated in hot weather.
The Regent’s Bar & Kitchen and Holme Green Kiosk sell ice cream, hot and cold beverages, sandwiches and cakes.
