Press Compound Media Passes
Due to the large numbers of media teams
and photographers asking for access to record the Cheese Rolling, it has become
necessary to issue Media Passes for entry to the ‘Press Compound’.
There are a
limited number of passes and these will be issued on a
‘first-come-first-served’ basis and details are as follows:
All persons wishing to access the "Press Compound" or "Starters Compound" must show an official pass to gain entry.
or mislaid passes may, at the discresion of the committee, be replaced, on the
day, by application at the press compound and subject to payment again of the
appropriate fee, in full, in cash. (Only cash - No cheques cards etc!)
Please e-mail your request for an application form to Press Compound Media Pass Quoting "Media Pass Application", please mention which category of pass you would like.
Requests must be received by us
no later than 1st of May, to ensure that you receive the
passes in time.
The Media Passes only relate to the (two) Official
Compounds, the Press and Officials Compound at the foot of the hill and the
Press and Starters Compound at the top of the hill.
Media Passes must be worn at all
times when in or requiring entry to the official compounds.
Members of the Media should wear high visibility (safety) clothing when in the non-public areas at the event.
Although the general area is Public
Common Land, for reasons of safety, areas of the land are temporarily defined as
Non Public Areas, within which public access and movement is restricted.
As the event is held on registered common land, no permissions are required to attend, photograph or film etc., other than in the official press compounds.
For considerations of safety, no filming or photography will be permitted on the main event part of the hill, all photographers and press etc. must be either in the press compound or in the designated spectator areas of the hill during the Cheese-Rolling events on the day. Failure to comply may result in the event being suspended and the offender(s) asked to leave the area.
There is a total ban on filming recording or photography within the designated First Aid Area, including the tents and ambulances on grounds of medical confidentiality!.
All persons attending the event, including those persons using the press compound area, do so entirely at their own risk. You are reminded that it is your responsibility to carry out an appropriate risk assessment and take all necessary precautions to ensure your personal safety.
