Information for your guests and suppliers
This is important information for all suppliers providing services to events taking place at Yoghurt Rooms. Please ensure that your suppliers are fully briefed and have read the following information in detail. We are happy to discuss any aspect of your planning to ensure the smooth running of your event.

You must use your reasonable endeavours to ensure that you, your guests and service providers comply with all of our reasonable instructions intended to ensure the safety of people and property at Busses Farm. This includes:

Event set up
All Service Providers must contact Busses Farm at their earliest opportunity and at the very least within 7 days of the event. We must be informed well in advance of utility supply requirements to ensure there is compliance and compatibility of utilities.
Noise Levels and restrictions
We do not employ a sound limiter control device but to ensure that music is kept at an appropriate level a sound check must be done with a member of farm staff present to set the top levels which must then be adhered to. In event of excessive music or bass levels the sound will be shut off. Music must be switched off in the barn by 11.30pm. There is an onsite sound studio for after-hours music.
Music cut off times
Music in the barn must be shut off by 11.30 pm. We are only permitted to have music on the Saturday night. The ‘rave room’ is provided for after-hours music and does not have a shut off time.
Arriving and leaving the premises
We ask that attendees vacate Busses Farm and Harwoods Lane in a quiet and considerate manner in order to avoid disturbing the neighbourhood.
Please park in designated parking areas only and avoid parking in gateways or where large vehicle access is required. We ask that you drive considerately and at an appropriate speed level not exceeding 15mph in Harwoods Lane. The lane is in constant use by walkers, cyclists and other traffic.
Our neighbours must be respected at all times. Please make your guests aware of the nature of the lane, to drive slowly and enter and leave quietly.
Busses Farm Washroom Facilities are not equipped to withstand flushing of any items other than toilet paper. Please use bins for nappies and other sanitary disposal etc.
For those attendees camping at Busses Farm and wishing to have an open fire, it must be strictly understood that fires are only permitted in designated areas and must be monitored at all times and never left unattended.
Please do not use fire pits as bins or burn anything apart from wood, cardboard and firelighters. Fire pits will be provided with a sand and water bucket for safety.

Children should not be left unattended at any time.
