If you do want to get away from it all, then the Rivermead Centre’s café, pool and showers, hairdryers and other facilities are open to festival-goers for a small charge (entering the centre itself is free). Access to the Rivermead Leisure Centre can be made either via Red gate or by taking O’Malley Alley onto Richfield Avenue, then turning in left at the roundabout.
The centre is open from 8am – 3pm on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the event. The café does a fantastic fry up and is a nice place to sit in and get off the beaten track. The swimming pool is also a great way to keep fit whilst on site.
