Don’t forget we’d like to have all the entries in for 18th August 2016, but if you forget or are just late we’ll try to fit you in right up to the Saturday before the Show. However if you leave it that late its unlikely we’ll be able to get you complimentary entry and parking tickets. Hope to see you at the end of August?
