Dirty wheels, metals pedals etc on your unicycle will mean you CAN NOT ride it in the hall. The hall we will be in has a nice floor, lets all help keep it in good condition.

There is a café and vending machines on site or you can bring a drink and a snack with you. please us the café or viewing gallery to eat or drink, please don't bring food or drinks in to the sports hall.
