Members of the public can brings their dogs with them to the showground. However the following conditions apply, they must be kept on leads at all times and owners are to clean up after them.
Please note that the showground is a busy operational airfield with flights taking off and landing all day, there will also be sirens and noise levels will be high. This year will also see police horses and police dogs in attendance. They will be moving throughout the site. Please consider these factors before bringing your dog to the show. Important Note: There are no refreshment points provided for dogs, so please remember to bring water for your dog.
There are no cash points on site.
Bag checks at security points
Security searches will be in operation at the entrance to the site. This is provided by an external supplier. Any refusal will result in entry being denied. Please arrive early to allow for the extra security measures. Be patient with security checks and help the staff to help you. We know it is inconvenient but they are there to keep you safe. It is essential that you do not bring unnecessary items to the event; this will help to speed up searches and your entry to the event.
If you spot someone acting suspiciously, report it to Police, security staff or show staff immediately: don’t leave it to someone else. In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from staff – especially those with radios – who can raise the alarm quickly. Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare, and never agree to look after anyone else’s bags, no matter how plausible their story. If there is an incident, listen to staff and any announcements. Organisers will have emergency plans to help you keep safe. Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorism incident is small, but if it happens – Run, Hide, Tell. (Information sourced from Rescue Day 999.)

Do you do concessions for carers or disabled?
The committee work hard to keep the cost of attendance as low as possible, so we are therefore unable to do offer concessions. If you would like to contact us regarding this please use the enquiries email address firstname.lastname@example.org
If you become separated from your child/ children please notify a member of staff immediately so we can make an immediate announcement and a prompt search can be undertaken. We recommend you take a photo of your child before attending the show, in case they do get lost, as the photo will assist us in the search. All found children will be taken to Event Control and an announcement will be made across the site.
