Our Committee is run entirely by volunteers, it’s a huge show to be run by just 15 of us, including all year round organisation, a little help on the day is greatly appreciated and we have a great reward system in place.

VEHICLES

IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MANY VEHICLES I CAN BRING?

We don’t have a vehicle limit, we do request that you inform us upon booking your tickets of the amount of vehicles you are bringing, however we would like everyone to be considerate that extra vehicles can take up someone else’s camping space.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PARK MY EXTRA VEHICLE IN A SEPARATE FIELD?

Your camping tickets cover you for a camping unit and 1 vehicle, for example one van and one awning = a camping unit or a car and a tent = a camping unit.

Show and Shine vehicles are allowed to stay with your camping unit.

it’s all about being considerate of others wanting to attend and not taking up space that others could have.

CAN I BRING MY CARAVAN OR MOTOR HOME?

We happily accept Caravans and motorhomes, as long as they are not exceptionally large.

WHAT VEHICLE MOVEMENT RESTRICTIONS DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?

We politely ask that vehicle movement is kept to a minimum, hazards on and 10mph at all times.

Vehicle movement past the HQ and into the showground during showtimes will need an escort, we are more than happy to help with this.

Anyone found to be abusing these rules can be asked to leave the site.

We try to have a bit of everything and i’m sure you’ll find a great selection of food available at Jamboree.
