Entry and exit to Trafalgar Square is via the Upper Terrace in front of The National Gallery at either end, and via the south east corner towards the entry for Charing Cross Tube station. The south west corner towards the Mall is for exit only.
If you have drinks in glass bottles with you, you will be asked to decant these into biodegradable plastic jugs provided at the entrance points.
The lower part of the square will be filled up first; the upper terrace – where there are large screens onto which we will project the performance – will then be filled.
We advise that you should arrive no later than 3.30pm to secure a place. Should the square fill completely, we will need to close the entrance barriers and it’s unlikely any further entry will be granted.
Please be aware that if you leave the Square and it fills up while you are out, you will not be able to get back in.
We have implemented the following measures to make the event as accessible and inclusive as possible for a wide range of audience members:
Furniture is not allowed in the Square. Cushions are available to hire from carts at just £2.50 each. Toilets are located on the lower terrace towards the back; there’s a café in the square too.
You are welcome to bring food and drink in, although please do not bring glass for safety reasons. If you have drinks in glass bottles with you, you will be asked to decant these into biodegradable plastic jugs provided at the entrance points.
There is a café located inside the Square if you wish to buy refreshments when you arrive.
Please don't bring furniture with you, but rugs for the floor are fine.
We’ll play on for as long as we can, but if the rain gets too heavy we’ll have to stop. There will be messages on the big screens and announcements made, so sit tight and we’ll keep you posted. We have biodegradable plastic ponchos in case you didn't bring a coat!
About 6.30pm at the latest.
