5) Save or Print the Bus Timetable It’s helpful during the event to have the bus timetable with you. Print it out or save a copy to your device.

6) To plan or not to plan? Once menus and bus timetables are available, it’s your choice whether to take to the bus timetable with a highlighter and mark out which venues you will do and in what order… OR if you’re inclined to just go with the flow on the day with no plan that can be just as fun!

Tip: It’s not possible to experience all venues in one day (expect to visit 4-5).
