Caring about COVID

The measures we're taking to keep everyone safe at our Show

We're very fortunate that our Show dates are a number of weeks after the scheduled easing of COVID-19 restrictions in England. For this reason, we're planning for a full event. 

Our team is working closely with our trusty Health & Safety consultant and will make sure that we implement any changes required to manage risk for our volunteers, stallholders, competitors and visitors. 

There will be change at this year's Show and we'll add information to this page over the coming weeks to keep you up to date with what we're doing. 

Firstly, there will be no tickets available to buy on the gate. Tickets *MUST* be bought in advance. This is essential for us to control numbers and to comply with the expected 'Test & Trace' requirement that the identity of each person on site is recorded. Your e-Tickets will be sent to your email address and you'll need to either print them ahead of the Show or ensure they're available on your smartphone. 

The layout of the Showground has changed in a move that will help people flow more freely around the site by easing points of congestion. There will be maps available and volunteer marshalls to help you find your way around.   

We have a number of handwash points at the Showground already. We're adding sanitiser points too and kindly ask you to make frequent use of these facilities. 

Advice around mask wearing, social distancing and safe capacity for marquees remains under careful review by our team.
