The Show is dog friendly and many of our visitors bring their canine companions along. This of course extends to Guide dogs, who are very welcome on site.

Disabled Toilet Facilities

Each toilet block on the showground has a dedicated disabled toilet.

We also have a specialised Mobiloo facility on site for changing.
