ACCOMMODATION AND TRAVEL


We know that working away from home is exciting but can also be daunting. Below you’ll find everything you need to know to be prepared for your time away.

So you’ve agreed to work away from home, this could be on a camp in a location away from your home area or you’ve signed up to work on one of our Military venues.

    If you are getting the train or a bus, remember to use your rail card and before you book it, check with the Ops team.
  2. Accommodation – where possible we will arrange for you to stay in self-catered accommodation in a single ensuite room. We aim to provide free wifi and free parking where possible. Sometimes, you may find that you are accommodated in a hotel near the venue. Occasionally you will be asked to share a twin room with a member of your team (same sex only).
