Should I travel from overseas?
While The Fully Charged Show is based in Britain, about 2/3rds of our audience is from outside of the UK. Naturally, then we have received lots of interest from international visitors. Before you invest in your travel plans though you might reasonably ask is, is Fully Charged LIVE going to represent value for money?
The show is going to be delivered to a high standard with lots of exciting visitor attractions and live sessions and there will be plenty to do over a day's visit, however it is important to mention that is the first such event and as such it will not be the biggest of exhibitions with around 50-60 exhibitors. Furthermore, while it is on our roadmap to host events internationally in the future, we will not be doing so for at least 12 months. We hope that all of the above enables you to make an informed decision about attending.
How much do tickets cost?
Standard tickets are £29.50 per person inclusive of VAT, while tickets for senior citizens and students are £20 each; entry is free for those that are 15 years of age and under. For those individuals that support Robert Llewellyn's Fully Charged Show via the Patreon crowdfunding site, as a thank you tickets booked by patreon supporters are only £17.50 per person inclusive of VAT. All tickets enable access on BOTH days of the show.
E-tickets on smartphones etc will be sufficient to access the show.
Can I charge my car at Silverstone?
NO. A significant percentage of Fully Charged Show fans have plug-in electric vehicles, so it is likely that with thousands of visitors expected at Fully Charged LIVE, that there will be hundreds if not thousands of electric vehicles on-site. In all likelihood this will make it the biggest ever convening of electric vehicles at a venue in the UK. There are few, if any venues in the UK that could cope with that level of power demand and as such we recommend that visitors make alternative charging arrangements en route. Naturally, we will be communicating options in advance of Fully Charged LIVE to make the show as accessible as is possible.
Where do we park at Silverstone?
There is a significant amount of vehicle parking at external car parks outside the circuit, this parking will be FREE OF CHARGE. Visitors will be transported FREE OF CHARGE to the Silverstone Wing from these car parks. The areas will be marshalled on arrival and you will be directed to the relevant parking area. More information on car parking will be communicated to ticket-holders prior to the event.
How do I get from nearby train stations?
The nearest train stations are Banbury, Milton Keynes or Northampton, all of which are approximately a 20 minute drive from Silverstone. We are not offering shuttle services from the transport hubs to the show. We are investigating ride-sharing options and if we do proceed with these we will publicise them pre-event.
Can I stay at Silverstone overnight?
NO. There are no overnight accommodation options at Silverstone this year. There are multiple hotels within the area and a list is available from email@example.com on request.
Will I be able to test drive vehicles on-site?
NO. While we are still in discussion with a number of parties about test drive availability at the show, due to vehicle charging limitations this will not be a significant feature at Fully Charged LIVE 2018. We will be looking to develop this aspect of the show in future years.
What time does the show open and close?
The show opens at 10:00 on both days, but closes at 18:00 on day 1 (Saturday 9th June) and an hour earlier at 17:00 on day 2 (Sunday 10th June). Timetables of the content programme will be provided pre-event.
What catering is on-site?
There will be one main catering area in Exhibition Hall 3 of the Silverstone Wing. We will be looking to offer a selection of catering facilities, including vegetarian and vegan options.
How many live sessions are there and what will they cover?
There will be 16 live sessions in two theatres at the heart of the exhibition over the two days. Please note that the content will NOT be the same on each day, so please bear that in mind when you are considering on which day to attend (your ticket does entitle you to attend on BOTH days). Live sessions will be hosted by Robert Llewellyn, Jonny Smith or Helen Czerski and will cover a number of relevant energy & transport topics. More information will be provided pre-event; there is no booking system for these events, so seating will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
What can I ask the experts?
The Ask the Experts area will be at the rear of Exhibition Hall 2 of the Silverstone Wing and will include experts from across the industry including the Renewable Energy Association, Hyperion Executive Search, Drive Electric and Chargemaster. Experts will focus on a number of different areas including electric vehicle ownership, electric vehicle charging, a variety of renewable technologies, as well as careers in the industry.
What provisions are there at the Silverstone Wing for disabled visitors?
In the first instance for any information regarding disabled access or facilities please call 0844 3750740 (Monday to Friday: 8:30am to 5:00pm only), email or write to us at Silverstone Circuits, Disabled Enquiries, Circuit Office, Northamptonshire, NN12 8TN. General info can also be found at: http://www.silverstone.co.uk/visiting/disabled-information/further-information/.
Carers will be able to access the event FREE OF CHARGE.
Can I volunteer to help with the event management of Fully Charged LIVE?
We have received numerous requests from volunteers keen to support the show. We are very grateful but there are no further opportunities to support Fully Charged LIVE 2018.
Can dogs or other animals attend the show?
NO. As a live racetrack, Silverstone has a strict policy that no dogs or other animals are allowed on-site.
How do I find out if I am eligible for a press pass?
