Prepare for a Long Journey - Knock

Preparing for a Long Journey (Knock)

  • For your safety and welfare, you should plan your whole journey from the beginning of the day until you return home.
  • You are likely to be standing for a long period of time.
  • Your journey may involve a lot of walking to and from the event.
  • If you are unsure if you can make this journey or if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, talk to your doctor or other health professional.

The journey to and from Knock for those attending the event could be long and involve a lot of walking depending on where you travel from.

To help you with your journey there are a number of supports in place. Designated rest zones will be positioned at regular intervals at the transport hubs, along these walking routes and at the gates. Multiple food and drinks stations will also be available, as will medical facilities, toilets and baby changing facilities. There will be volunteers throughout the venue, at the gates and at the hubs who will be able to help you.

This is not a seated event so you may be standing for some time. More information on what you can bring into the venue, including portable seating, will be available soon.

Facilities will be provided for people with accessibility issues and their carers. You will be asked if you need special facilities when applying for tickets. More information will be given along with your ticket at a later date.

Talk to your doctor or other health professional if you are unsure if you can make this journey or if you have any pre-existing medical conditions. Make sure you have any medications you need.

This information is updated on an ongoing basis so please check back regularly.
