If weather conditions leading up to 20th June are particularly hot and dry, it may be necessary to ask people not to smoke. This will be subject to advice from the Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.
The Solstice Car Park will be lit and there will be ambient lighting at the Monument throughout the night. These lights will be systematically turned off as dawn approaches but only when it is operationally safe to do so. Please do not tamper with any of the lighting towers - it can be dangerous.
There will be stewards on duty to help with the smooth and successful running of the Solstice access. They are also there to answer your questions, so please don't hesitate to approach them, they are there to help. If you notice anything that concerns you please report it, so that appropriate action can be taken.
In Case of Emergency
The Great Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust, St John Ambulance Service and Wiltshire Police will be in attendance. If you, or someone you are with, needs medical attention, please seek help from one of the security staff or stewards on duty.
In the unlikely event of an incident that requires the evacuation of Stonehenge or the Solstice Car Park, we would ask that members of the public respond quickly to instructions given by stewarding staff, the Police or other Emergency Service personnel. PA announcements for your safety and information may be necessary during the access period.
If you get lost, or lose track of your friends or children, don't panic. Locate a member of the security or stewarding team. Alternatively go to the information / meeting / welfare point and report the situation to the welfare team.
No unlicensed, non-invited traders will be permitted access. This applies to the Monument area, the surrounding landscape and Solstice Car Park.
