Saltcote Suppliers are looked after very well
When attending Saltcote Place, we will ensure you have all that you need to present your product or service to its very best. Alongside access where needed. And crucially that you can get away without issue when you need to.
We will ask that you email us before the day. To indicate your estimated time of arrival. And perhaps on the day a courtesy phone call to 01797 222220 just prior to arrival. So as to ensure we move other vehicles out of the way so you can access all you need.
Once you have setup, we will ask that your vehicles are moved outside of the gates Asap. This is to assist other suppliers. Furthermore, we will ensure you can return to breakdown and get away promptly.
We have two wide wheel trolleys to assist you moving any equipment. Do not drive any vehicles onto the grass within the gated area without first obtaining permission from the owners in person.
The intention is to leave the drive clear for imagery. And spaces at the front will be reserved for suppliers who may need to leave early. No Vehicles must park on the shaded area where to park. Please do not drive onto our lawns once inside the gate. The postcode for Saltcote is TN31 7NR
Music – DJ – Band
Saltcote Suppliers – All speakers MUST face out toward the coast. And at a downward angle so that if you were projecting light it would not extend directly past the edge of the garden. Having a “Line array” speaker system is a distinct advantage as they direct the music onto the dance floor from above. This provides a lot of noise on the dance floor in a controlled manner and does not impact the neighbours.
All equipment needs to be setup and tested before the event starts. You will be in a Marquee.
Base and Volume
Excessive base or volume is not the sign of a good performance. Hence, we will ask for adjustments if in our opinion we feel anything is excessive. Remember your sound check in an empty space will require lower base levels when guests arrive as the treble will be absorbed by the guests.
At the close of play, we would ask that you make an announcement along these lines – “Thanks to Saltcote Place for having us, hope you have enjoyed yourselves. When you leave please leave quietly and considerately to respect the lovely neighbors. And don’t forget you can leave your cars here until 13:00 tomorrow at your own risk of course.
Flat surfaces near the dance floor – Speakers, candy bar, photo booth etc.
We will not permit any flat surfaces in close proximity to the dance floor that could be used to stand glasses on. Thank you for helping us reduce the risk of injury from broken glass. Items such as speakers must have an angled top to prevent drinks being placed on them.
There is no “green room” if you require changing facilities please use the main cloak room toilets in the house, some event organizers will arrange for a separate restroom so you can relax when not performing. The house is not able to provide this facility whilst the event is in progress as the house will be secured.
Please provide evidence of PAT testing if you intend to plug anything in.
Photography and Video
We have a complete set of all images for each event we have hosted, your attendance is on the understanding that we will receive a full set of your images. We recognize the value of the skill and undertake not to release or publish them without the relevant permissions and will always ensure you receive full credit.
Public liability, professional indemnity etc should be emailed prior to arrival to firstname.lastname@example.org without it you will not be permitted to work here.
Catering for suppliers
Our catering team will have a list provided by the event organizers that explains who is being fed and with which meal. We assume you have already arranged this with the organizer of the event. Once the Guests have been fed we will come and find you, please do not enter the catering facilities.
Nothing is to be taken down when Guests are present unless specifically authorized by the owners who will be on hand. Please leave any marquee by the shortest possible route and do not walk through guests. Next day removals can be arranged and may be dependent upon the time the marquee comes down which is usually early the day after an event. You are responsible for the well being of your equipment, so good communications are essential.
No supplier vehicles are to move within the ground after dark until authorised and accompanied by the owners.
We will ensure you have access in to aide with setup and breakdown, your parking will be in the same area as the Guests as shown here to ensure you are able to get away when ready http://saltcoteweddings.co.uk/parking-at-saltcote/
Please stay under 5mph in the drive as there are two public footpaths exiting onto the drive where dogs and children could “suddenly appear” we have lovely neighbors and are keen to keep it that way. Be aware that CCTV does cover the full extent of the drive.
