Prams

Prams are certainly welcome but at peak trading times the aisles can become conjested and a baby carrier (if appropriate) might be easier.  Prams can be parked in our foyer area.  We ask that shoppers with prams are mindful of not cutting off access into stands.

Peak Trading Times

Opening night is always busy but great fun (especially with a glass of champagne in hand!!).  The mornings can also be hectic but it tends to slow down around lunch time and school pick up time.
