Applications for new traders, charities and non-trading exhibits will be closing on 1st May, so if you are interested in attending, please be sure to get your applications in as soon as possible and before this deadline.

This is a hard deadline and we can not accept traders or charities which turn up unannounced during the show.

To make an application as a trader or a charity please visit the Traders page, and download the application forms. Charities should fill in the traders form, NOT the non-trading Exhibits form.

Non-Trading exhibits are any displays which are not traders, charities, living history or reenactment, or vehicle exhibits. If you have a non-trading exhibit and would like to attend, please fill out the Non-Trading Exhibits form.

Over the years the Show has been proud to support our currently serving armed forces as well as veterans by providing discounted show entry*. We have never had a firm policy on the verification of veterans and free admission has been on a discretionary basis, however, it has become apparent that this system is being abused, and it is confusing for those eligible as to what proof of service is required of them.

To ensure a fair process for all parties involved, we have decided to formalise our policy and will ONLY accept the following ID for Serving Armed Forces, and Veterans.

Serving Armed Forces:

Official Identity MOD90

Veterans:

Official Identity MOD90 – We will accept expired/invalidated/retired MOD90 if you were permitted to keep it and the photo still bears a good resemblance to the card holder.
HM Armed Forces Veterans ID – Veterans who have left since December 2018 should have been given one of these. An applications process for all other veterans is expected to open soon.
Defense Discount Service ID – While we are not afflicted with the DDS, it is the OFFICIAL MOD veterans discount service. The service offers online discounts, and by use of a physical card for in person discounts. You will need to present your card.

All Current Serving Armed Forces Personnel will have an “MOD90”.

We appreciate there are many associations for veterans, however, it is extremely difficult to verify the authenticity of all of these associations and we are therefore unable to accept these.

*Please Note, that due to rising operating costs, we are no-longer able to support a full concession.Please visit our Times and Prices Page for more information.
