Profits generated from your ticket purchase/s will directly fund more Fully Charged episodes, podcasts etc. So, thank you!
Why has the TICKET PRICING structure changed?
In honesty, we’re still a cash-strapped start-up – we’re working on that – but in order to bring Fully Charged fans more content, we’ve tripled our investment in the 2019 show. Including hiring twice the space within the venue, hiring the venue for an extra day, hiring the Stowe Circuit for test drives, adding an outdoor live stage & more. This sizeable commitment has seen sponsors/exhibitors bearing the biggest load, but is also partially offset through a new ticket pricing structure. We’re very grateful to everyone who makes this possible.
Why do I have to buy ONE-DAY, TWO-DAY OR THREE-DAY TICKETS?
Last year’s policy of one ticket price for the whole weekend, caused some challenges for the venue, especially as 65% of the visitors arrived within the first hour of the first day. Oops. New events are notoriously difficult to predict. Nonetheless it’s important that we have a handle on who’s coming and when. As Saturday is the busiest day (& is a longer day with additional content it is slightly more expensive. What’s more we would like to gently nudge people towards the Friday and Sunday and as such the rates for those are lower.

What VISITOR ATTRACTIONS can I expect at Fully Charged LIVE?
In short, you can expect an electrifying day out. Information on our visitor attractions, including the live sessions, exhibitors and sponsors is available on the previous page. It should be noted that as in 2018, we expect a significant number of additional companies to commit in the final weeks ahead of Fully Charged LIVE.
How many LIVE SESSIONS are there and what will they cover?
There will be 30 live sessions in two theatres 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. Live sessions will be hosted by Robert Llewellyn, Jonny Smith, Helen Czerski and Maddie Moate and will cover a number of relevant 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.
Will there be TEST DRIVES at Fully Charged LIVE?
We are working with manufacturers to develop a test drive programme and details of this will be publicised prior to the event. Please note that the capacity of the circuit would be 1,000 daily drives and with as many as 10,000 visitors anticipated, opportunities will be very limited. We are working to ensure manufacturers are able to sign people up for post-event test drives.
Should we TRAVEL FROM OUTSIDE OF THE UK to Fully Charged LIVE?
While the Fully Charged team is based in Britain, ~70% of 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, so there will be plenty to do over a day's visit, however it is important to mention that as a year two event it will not be the biggest of shows, with around 100 exhibitors. Furthermore, we will be bringing Fully Charged LIVE to North America this Autumn and we are also hoping to launch Fully Charged LIVE in Europe in 2020. We hope that all of the above enables you to make an informed decision about attending.
Is there ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING at Fully Charged LIVE?
NO. Around one third 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. There are few, if any venues in the UK that could cope with that level of power demand and as such we strongly recommend that visitors make alternative charging arrangements en route. Naturally, we will be communicating options in advance of Fully Charged LIVE to ensure that the show is as accessible as possible.
What are the CAR PARKING ARRANGEMENTS at Fully Charged LIVE?
There is a significant amount of vehicle parking at external car parks outside the circuit, this parking will be subsidised by sponsors and as such will be FREE OF CHARGE. Visitors will be transported FREE OF CHARGE in electric vehicles 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.
What are the LOCAL TRANSPORT LINKS to Silverstone?
The nearest train stations are Banbury, Milton Keynes and Northampton, all of which are approximately a 20-minute drive from Silverstone. At this stage, we are not offering shuttle services from these transport hubs to the show. We are investigating ride-sharing options and if we do proceed with these we will publicise them pre-event.
What OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS are there near Silverstone?
There are multiple hotels within the Silverstone area and a list is available from firstname.lastname@example.org. Silverstone Woodlands campsite is on the grounds itself and pitches can be purchased through the official Fully Charged LIVE ticketing site.
What FOOD & DRINK is available at Fully Charged LIVE?
We are working with Silverstone’s contracted caterer to provide a selection of catering facilities, including vegetarian and vegan options. There will be some catering in the Exhibition Halls, but the majority will be positioned across the Paddock area.
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.

Do you require VOLUNTEERS to support the show?
We receive numerous requests from volunteers keen to support the show. We are very grateful, but there is a team of event professionals allocated against all of the organisational aspects of Fully Charged LIVE 2019.
