These sites are open to the elements with bare ground flooring.

Access to power is a bonus but is NOT assured.

Please note : Friends and their vehicles are not given access to "drop things off" without previously having paid their admission price at the gate. All entrants must show their armband (secured to their arm) when coming into the Showgrounds each time.

Last Years stall holders were offered the opportunity to re-book a site for the 2019 Motor Show. Information will soon be posted to those who completed the forms.

Entry into the grounds will be from Friday morning 7th June 2019 at a time to be determined once pre-booking has closed. There will be no early entry stall holders prior to gates opening time.

Camping is available for swap site stall holders only once weekend entry fees and site fees are paid.
