Show entry?

Raffle tickets are purely for the raffle and do not constitute as show entry, tickets always sell out at only £10 for a set of FreeSpirit rods and only 250 tickets are issued!

Show entry is via E-tickets @ £12 with a free gift, or pay on the door which is £15 exact cash only (no card for show entry). Please make sure you have tickets for everybody, as each ticket will only allow one person entry and each one has a unique fingerprint, the scanners will not allow a ticket to be used twice and you cannot buy additional tickets at the show, you would have to pay the cash on the door price.

On purchasing an E-ticket, you should receive a transaction notification within 24 hours, the actual E-tickets are emailed out to you from Friday 20th October at 5pm, on Sunday 22nd October 10pm we will send out an email with all the latest show information and details on how best to show the E-ticket to the scanners, to ensure an efficient entry into the show.

All E ticket entry comes with a free Cypography and Carp Fix film bundles that will be emailed to you on 12th of November (it is sent to the email address that your E-ticket is sent to).

Are children FREE?

Yes if the child is under 12 years at the time of the event and is accompanied by a paying adult, they are free – you will still need to get an E-ticket for them for entry, only 2 under 12 children are permitted per paying adult. Children aged 12-15 will be able to purchase at the concessionary ticket price.

FREE Children Goody Bags

Children up to the age of 15 years old are eligible for a free goody bag from one of the major manufacturers. Goody bags are limited so if in the extreme case (and we will do everything in our power to avoid this) we have more children than goody bags, we will allocate these in order of ticket purchase date, only 1 goody bag per child.

Each parent of the child ticket is emailed out a goody bag ticket by email, for early ticket purchases it will be sent out on the 1st November 10pm any tickets after this date they will be sent out 4th November 5pm (we cannot allocate any goody bags after this deadline), detailing what manufacturer you have been allocated and details on how to claim it at the show. Goody bags can only be claimed by the goody bag E-ticket; these are emailed to same email address as the show E-tickets. Please don’t abuse these goody bags if you fraudulently take a goody bag you will be breaking the heart of a child who was expecting one.
