Looks like Thursday is back on the menu boys and girls! :clapping:

After a couple years break from it I'm interested to see what they put together next year. Sounds like they've listened to feedback and are making positive changes. The move to an early August date is a excellent change IMO.

No idea! I thought perhaps they might have discussed with club reps, but we will see. I can only assume another relatively central showground type venue as realistically that's the only type of venue that can really accomodate it.

Can i ask a probably stupid question.....?

How much does this normally cost to attend? Never been to a show before especially taking my own car lol and i would be interested in going if it doesn't empty my bank account.

Full weekend tickets are ~£40 in advance. They did offer a day ticket last year as well for less.

Yes that's right - camping is included, or you can find a hotel if you like. Attendance does vary from year to year but usually there's a decent turn out. I missed the past two years.

If you're planning on getting to the shows, then a tent is a pretty much essential purchase :laughing

Venue will be announced at the end of the month due to restrictions by the venue owners.
