What facilities are there for disabled people?
We have looked at the question of facilities for our disabled visitors very carefully. Parking will be reserved for a large number of disabled visitors. We would, however, recommend that visitors arrive before 11.00am in order to get a parking place close to the showground entrance.
Please note however, that the showground is an agricultural field and, as such, the surface may be uneven. Please take every care as you enjoy the show. Please contact our General Secretary if you have any further specific questions about disabled facilities.
