Carer/PA Ticketing Scheme

Ticketing Policy

The North Somerset Show are committed to improving accessibility to the Show facilities and aim to make trips more comfortable and enjoyable for visitors with disabilities.  Our admissions policy admits one companion of a disabled visitor free of charge, while the normal admission fee applies to the disabled visitor, when booked in advance.  This concession is only available by applying in advance with supporting documents.

About the scheme

The North Somerset Show are pleased to operate a scheme to provide one complimentary entry ticket for a Carer / PA of a qualifying disabled visitor to enable them to access the Show.

If you wish to apply for a Carer / PA ticket in order to have assistance at the Show please purchase a standard ticket for the event and complete and submit the application form, which you can download using the link below, alongside your supporting evidence documentation.

Show tickets can be purchased online at www.nsas.org.uk or by telephone: 01934 837 285 or in person at the show office at the North Somerset Show Office, Yeowood Farm, Wrington.

If, having bought tickets, you are subsequently unable to attend the Show due to the nature of your condition, the organisers will refund the full ticket price if both the carer/PA ticket and the ticket purchased are unused. Applications for refunds on this scheme may be made from Tuesday 7th May 2019.
