i have a family camping ticket and was just told by festival republic that i cannot go to the site on friday with my wife and set up our camping area ahead of our two toddlers arriving on sat morning with other family members. The three nights in a tent is too much for them so we thought arrive sat and go home sunday evening. But we wont be allowed in with out them .very disapointed.

That has been the case for the last few years. Originally you could arrive and set up the tent and then the kids came later. but now you need to have the kids with you. Load of shite.

It's probably to stop, you know, paedos from just buying family tickets and going in on their own.

That's why you make such good event security Event Security. You see the danger lurking around every corner.

Frustrating but not unreasonable imo.

Maybe ask another family if you could borrow one of theirs for a few minutes as you're going through the gate.

steal a baby like any normal person

or dress your wife up as a baby

if they challenge you about your wife being an adult, just say "then why does she keep whinging like a baby". Security will likely chuckle, being miserable in their own married lives, and wave you on in, sayin "best of luck pal"
