FAQ About Your Ticket

You can use the ticket once, on any of the three days the show is open.

Online tickets are discounted, with sales ending on the Friday night at midnight on the 25th. There is also a fast track line at the ticket booths for online tickets.
Gate prices are announced on Friday the 25th.

The Website says tickets are sold out. Where do I buy them from?

Do not panic, you will still be able to buy full priced tickets on the gate on the day that you come. We do not limit the number of tickets sold on the gate.

FAQ Relating to Carers and disabled visitors

Carers Access and Pricing

All carers are welcome at the show, be it a family member or professional (such as residential care). We offer discounted adult disabled  tickets. All carers must buy a standard adult ticket.

The only time carers are allowed in for free, are those who who receive Carers Allowance benefit. This is a low income, means tested benefit, commonly claimed for by family members who can no longer work as they providing 35 hours a week care for a child/person who is receiving certain disability benefits.

You must bring a copy of your Carers Allowance award letter and show it to the ticket office to get in for free.

FAQ About Tank Rides

Tank Rides are organised by a third party company who decide the price. We do not know the price until the show opens.

You are not required to book rides in advance. You simply join the queue at the loading point (where you pay) which is sign posted in the main arena field.

Other Information

what time are aircraft flyovers?

We can not tell you this before the day. Times are affected by weather, mechanical issues and travel time etc (this can sometimes cause cancellations). The BBMF inform us on the day the expected time and this will be announced on the shows PA system on the day.

Is the timetable and show content the same each day?

The arena timetable is the same on all three days. The aircraft fly over displays are different on each day. The exhibitors are the same on all three days. On Monday we are joined by Classic Cars (Classic Car Monday).

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, but we must warn you as dog lovers –
(i) There are a lot of explosions which can stress some dogs.
(ii) If the weather is hot, do not bring them as sitting in the sun for hours is not good for your dog.
(iii) If the weather is hot we do not permit dogs to be left in cars. If we are concerned about the welfare of your dog, we will announce it on the PA system and will force entry into your vehicle and do not accept responsibility for damage in doing so.
(iv) If your dog has a muzzle order, it must be worn or if your dog is reactive, please make sure to give it space from other visitors or their dogs.
(v) Dogs must be kept on their lead at all times and any poo cleared up immediately.
