To make our traders lives easier, please try and bring cash with you where possible. Some traders may have access to WiFi for card payment transactions but this will be the exception rather than the rule.

Health & Hygiene:
We want you to enjoy your experience of visiting the Show and to take advantage of the opportunity to see and interact with a range of animals. Generally show animals are very clean but there is a small risk of infection through animal contact especially for young children. Please use a common sense approach to hygiene when you have been touching animals or their pens and make sure that you and your children wash hands with soap and water and dry them with the hand towels provided, especially before eating anything. There are signs to hand washing stations around the show, if you are unsure where the nearest is, please ask one of the stewards.
