Q: How big is the show area?
A: The showground covers about 16 acres over 2 fields, with another three acres for civilian camping, so there is more than enough room for everyone.
Q: Can I bring my own food and drink?
A: Yes there are areas where you can settle down and have a picnic – just mind the tanks!
Q: Are we allowed to have a BBQ?
A: Sorry we’re afraid not. Due to the numbers of vintage vehicles and the large amounts of fuel they have to carry (a tank needs 4 gallons of fuel to drive a mile!) we try to do everything we can to minimize fire risk.
Q: Can I buy weekend tickets to attend both days?
A: No, but we offer discounts on family tickets and concessions for OAPs and Veterans
(see our “buy tickets” page).
Q: Can I pay with my credit/debit card at the gate?
A: the moment we are unable to take Credit or Debit cards – as such, we can only accept cash at the entrance gate.
Q: Can the public camp overnight?
A: We have areas for civilian camping available with toilets ,showers and fresh water points.
Q: Is earlier camping possible, i.e. for those, who take part in the show?
A: There will be complimentary period camping on the show site for those taking part from the Friday to the Monday. Longer periods can be accommodated by prior arrangement but please be aware the toilets do not arrive on site until Friday. For the show periods, all civilian vehicles will have to be removed and any civilian tents will require camouflage. Those exhibitors with civilian campers will be directed to the civilian camping area.
