We will be working with local company SPA Security who are familiar with the Docks area. They will be across the site from Wednesday 23rd May both day and night. This is in addition to the Dock’s Security team. You will notice that Security will be in place across the access points into the Docks from 9am each event day to support with preparing the site for the event. Security will permit access to anyone who shows the Resident wristband over the event days.


We recommend that you wear your wristband over the event days, but we are aware that this is not convenient for everyone. If you would prefer to have it on your bag, car key keyring or on a lanyard this will be fine, please just attach it to something that you won’t forget to carry around. We will be delivering 2 free wristbands to each apartment in the Docks on w/c 13th May which will ensure easy access to the Docks via a dedicated ‘fast lane’ on the entrances and a residents and business only entrance next to Priday Mills. If you require additional wristbands for others in your property or your visitors, please contact
