How to get here
Please click here for directions to the venue.

Gate opening times 
The gate opening times this weekend are as follows:
Friday 8.00am 
Saturday 7.30am 
Sunday 7.00am

Tickets 
Advance online ticket sales have now closed, but you can still pay on the gate at the following prices:

Friday: Adults £12, Teens (13-15) £8, Senior Citizens £10
Saturday: Adults £16, Teens (13-15) £10, Senior Citizens £13
Sunday: Adults £35, Teens (13-15) £21, Senior Citizens £27
Children under 13 are free.

If you have chosen to have tickets posted (not print-at-home) you will need to bring the originals to the circuit as copies and receipts are not accepted. All advance tickets have now been dispatched and were sent by either Recorded or Special Delivery, meaning a signature is required.

In the rare instance that your tickets have not arrived in time you will need to purchase them at the gate price and obtain a refund after the event by returning the gate ticket stubs and your original tickets to the main MSV office at Brands Hatch Circuit, Fawkham, Longfield, Kent, DA3 8NG.

Print-at-home tickets are emailed on the day of purchase. If you haven't received yours, login to your MSV account to access them. Print all your e-documents and bring them to the venue. Your order confirmation email will not gain you admission to the venue - you must have your e-tickets printed.

Please have your tickets separated before arriving at the gate.

Campsite
The general and quiet campsites both open at 12 noon on Thursday 16 August and close at midday on Monday 20 August. Please do not arrive before this time, as there is no holding area and you will be moved on from the roadside. Our full camping leaflet can be viewed by clicking here.

Camping on site is sold out for the weekend, however there is a selection of nearby campsites here.

There should be no unnecessary vehicle movement in either campsite. If the ground is wet and you're worried about being stuck, please speak to a member of security who will radio for assistance.

Camping is per person, not per pitch - your ticket will be exchanged for a wristband specific to your campsite on arrival. There will be no entry to the campsite without this wristband. This includes children.

Limited RV camping is pre-booked only. This is only for leisure vehicles over 7.5m in length - not cars with caravans. Tickets for this area are not valid for vehicles shorter than 7.5m.

Blue Badge Parking
Blue badge holders will be given access to two exclusive in-venue parking areas (Mountain Valley/Chris Curve) and the viewing platform between Park Corner and Chris Curve.

We have increased blue badge parking in this area, but please note there is no vehicle access beyond Park Corner, or anywhere else around the circuit.

Vehicles with blue badges may transit between these parking areas, but any vehicle roaming outside of this is strictly prohibited.

We have a vehicle and driver available to assist our guests who may have mobility issues, but who do not have a blue badge. If you require mobility support, please call the office on 01507 343 248 and our team will be happy to help.

General parking
There is no parking at Charlies all weekend. All public parking is in the South Car Park (from Horncastle direction) or the North Car Park (from Louth direction).

Any vehicles parked outside of these areas without the correct pass or authorisation will be removed for security reasons.

Please note: Strictly no vehicles left in North Car Park overnight from Thursday to Sunday - anyone found to be attempting to camp in this area will be charged a £150 per person release fee.

Bike Parking
Bike parking arrangements will be the same as in 2018, with all parking in North Car Park on Friday/Saturday, and bikes split between the infield towards Gooseneck Bank, and the band marquee compound on Sunday, which is our main bike park on site. 

Helmet and leather parks are available in all bike parks throughout the weekend, provided by the Rotary Club and raising money for local good causes.

Prices are as follows: 
Helmet: £2.50
Large clothing bag: £7.00
Helmet and large clothing bag: £8

Please note all bike parking is on grass, we provide bike stands at the entrance.

Special Bike Display
The Display Area outside the venue office will play host to a range of iconic race bikes across the weekend, showcasing Cadwell Park's rich motorcycle racing heritage. 

Trade Village
A trade area will be in operation all weekend, with dealers and manufacturers represented, plus championship partners and stalls selling parts, accessories and rider and team merchandise. The Trade Area is located in the valley at the base of the Mountain and higher up towards the Gooseneck.

Evening Live Music
Several bands will be providing evening entertainment in the campsite marquee and clubhouse: 

Friday
The Clubhouse - Disco
Marquee - Project Emily (7.45pm) followed by Conspiracy Rising

Saturday
Marquee - Redboot (7.45pm) followed by Stolen Fridays

Big screens 
To help you keep up with all the action there will be a large screen showing all of Sunday's action located at the main Spectator Bank, Charlies Exit and Gooseneck.

There will be a selection of rides, stalls and inflatables for adults and kids. Charges apply for activities in this area.

Like last year, we have the  'Superstars' Entertainment Team from Golden Palm Resort in Skegness with us this weekend, with Goldie the dog roaming the venue for selfies with youngsters.

Cadwell Park's adventure playground, located near the Clubhouse at Hall Bends, features a climbing frame, swings, adventure trail and more for children aged 4 years and up.

Cash machine
A cash machine will be in operation at the venue office from 11am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Charges apply.

Thursday night Superbike test
On Thursday night, Bennetts BSB teams will take part in a short test. This is in addition to the usual practice sessions for all categories on Friday. Due to the test, the circuit remains live, with no access for track walks etc.

The spectator bank and Club Circuit will be open for spectators who are already in the main and quiet camp sites, but there will be no access to the public and no entry at the main gate.

There will be no access to the paddock area during the set-up phase, with campsites closed to venue access until 5pm.

Wet weather
We prepare as well as we can for wet weather, but please be patient and follow steward/security guidance at all times should it be raining.

The majority of the venue is grass, and as a result will become muddy and slippery if wet. Please come prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear, and take particular care if using a buggy or push bike.

Motorised vehicles
The use of motorised paddock vehicles - except mobility scooters - is strictly prohibited. This includes go-peds, mini motos, kids' ride-on vehicles and electric bikes of any kind.

Repeated use of motorised vehicles in the camp sites or anywhere in the venue could result in the user being asked to leave the premises.
