    What to Wear & What to Take

    Fans - Getting there early, what are you going to take with you? Please check the weather to know what to expect (London weather forecast link can be found below).

    Weather in London can be very changeable but is likely to be hot in July and rain is always a possibility. We recommend wearing layers and packing a lightweight waterproof jacket in case it rains on the night. It’s important to stay hydrated, especially if it’s hot, so please make sure you have some water with you.

    Umbrella If you’re at the front then people behind you won’t be able to see and they may object to you having an umbrella. It’s best to stick to a raincoat.

    Bag Bring a small/medium bag perhaps for a change of dry clothes, something to eat/drink (once the crowds are there you won’t be able to get out and back in easily) and don’t forget your autograph book; just in case!

    Please be aware, for security, bag checks will be carried out on arrival and at entrances to the public pens.
