How do I get to & from the track & campsite?
Hainault Underground Station (Central Line) & 247 Bus route (to Forest Road) will take you near to the track (you will need to make the remaining distance by foot/wheel). There's no public transport links between the track & campsite, so we recommend private transport (e.g. sharing lists, skating/cycling, or catching an Uber/taxi).
If you're struggling for transport, please contact a member of staff at the event or email us ahead of time at email@example.com.
Is camping included in the ticket cost?
Full Weekender includes camping, Saturday & Sunday do not. If you're not skating, you can still camp, but will need to book a Camping Ticket.
What facilities are available at the track?
There's toilets, showers, parking, benches, and sheltered areas available for free to all Hog attendees during the event. If you're hungry, check out Sylvia's cafe for hot food, pastries & drinks.
What should I bring to the campsite?
There's toilets, showers & cooking facilities available at the campsite, along with a dedicated space for a bonfire, and a log cabin for shelter. You will need to bring your own camping gear, food & shower stuff.
Are there shops nearby?
We recommend doing any shopping prior to arriving, however, there is a cafe and vending machines at the Track. The 247 Bus Route will take you to Collier Row Road (in Romford), where you will find supermarkets, fast food & pubs. VT Food & Wine Newstand & Chigwell's Chinese Takeaway are popular choices. Please note, you are responsible for any takeaway orders to the track or campsite.
Where do I park?
There is free parking available at both the track & campsite, however, these can get crowded, so try to arrive early to get a space. We recommend car shares to reduce congestion, help those without a vehicle to carry their belongings, and do our part for the environment!
