Please see the list below, it’s not everything but we hope we can answer your enquiry here. If not then send us an email or give us a call..
What is the address /post code for the showground?
The post code for your sat nav is SY1 2PF and the showground is located on Berwick Road, Shrewsbury. PLEASE USE SAT NAV TO LOCATE THE VENUE.
When are tickets & trade passes sent out?
We don't post any tickets or trade passes until May, approx 4 weeks before the show date. When we send them out too early they get put 'in a safe place' never to be seen again!
What are the gate opening times?
Friday 2pm until Midnight, Saturday 9am until 9pm, Sunday 8.30am until 3pm
Do you allow Glass Bottles?
ABSOLUTELY NOT they are a danger to adults and children alike, no one likes to see someone hurt on broken glass, please decanter wine or spirits into plastic and if your drinking lager bring cans.
Are we allowed fires or fire-pits?
Fires (on the ground), NO! Fire Pits are discouraged and used at your own risk and will only be tollerated by security if they are kept under control on a 'low burn'. There are lots of canvas tents in the camping areas and cars full of petrol, fires and fire pits create sparks. Security or Marshalls will extinguish any fire pits deemed a risk to yourself or others. You are liable for your fire pit and all risk and damage.
Can we bring our dog?
Of course you can, so long as its kept on a lead at all times and you clean up after it. Absolutely no lions or tigers allowed though. LOL!
Can we reserve a camping plot?
We can only reserve camping for recognised clubs with a minimum of 10 vehicles, if you don’t fall into this category just get the first to arrive to bag you some space. The site is 80 acres though so you should have plenty of room!
Is there first aid and security on site?
Yes we have 24hr Paramedic cover and a full team of professional security, check your event programme for emergency security phone number or visit the main gate which will be the security base during the evening and through the night.
Can we bring a caravan?
Caravans, motorhomes etc are all fine although there are no electric hook ups available.
Are there any electric hook–ups?
Unfortunately these are not available. You are allowed generators but they are not to run after 10pm
Are there showers on site?
Yes, in two locations, we have a small block of showers located beyond general camping toward the river end of the site and also the Ladies and Mens toilet blocks to the left of the entrance gate have showers located inside.
Can we play music in camping?
All we ask is for people not to take the mickey, music during daylight hours is fine in general camping, we do have a music and noise curfew of 11pm (imposed by the local council laws) at which time we ask for quiet camp, people need their sleep! Please be respectfull of your neighbours right to sleep, this is a family show.
Do you allow BBQ’s?
Yes, but off ground BBQ’s only, no disposable BBQ’s are permitted on site, BBQ’s must be exitguished after cooking food.

How can we apply to do catering at the show?
