Vehicle movement is to be kept to a minimum. No vehicle movement is allowed in the trade stand area on show days between the hours of 8.00am and 6.30pm. There is also no vehicle movement in the pedestrian area at any time, unless part of an organised display pre-agreed with the Organiser. Only persons licensed to drive may operate vehicles.

There are no objections to the wearing of ALLIED uniforms, providing no decorations or badges of rank are worn to which the wearer is not entitled. AXIS uniforms may be worn as part of a static display or an arena event, but not around the site. The organisers continue to appreciate your co-operation in the above. Please be respectful at all times.
There are dedicated Support Vehicle parking areas on site. You are required to park any vehicle not part of your display or not on your trade stand in the appropriate parking area once you have unpacked and set up. We have had a great number of complaints that too many non display vehicles are parked up on site detracting from the displays. Vehicles will be towed to a parking area if inappropriately parked, causing obstruction or in a display or trade stand area after 8.00am. The only exception will be disabled persons vehicles displaying a current blue badge. You are welcome to use bicycles to move around the site, if ridden with care. Children may not ride motorcycles, quads, etc. during the show days.
Vehicle and Camping Security
This show is open to the general public and they will therefore have access to your vehicle. The organisers can accept no responsibility for loss of, or damage to, your vehicle or its contents. In these circumstances we strongly recommend that you avoid leaving your vehicle completely unattended during the show. Should you wish to do so, we suggest that at the very least you arrange for someone with an adjacent vehicle to watch yours and upon return check your vehicle, not only for any loss or damage, but also for any suspicious package that may have been placed in, on or near your vehicle.
Refuse will be collected from the stall area between 8.00am and 9.00am, then 6.30pm and 9.00pm each day. Elsewhere around the site there will be numerous static refuse bins and a mobile team working from 9.00am to 6.00pm.
Must conform to the current Health and Safety Regulations and the Electricity at Work Regulations. This includes ground spikes (earthing). Any cost incurred ensuring that your generator complies with current legislations will be at your own expense.
The Smoke-Free (Premises and Enforcement Regulations 2007)
As of 1st July 2007 a NO SMOKING ban has been introduced into England as law. This legislation carries fines for both the smoker and the person in charge of the premises. These fines are £50 and £200 respectively. We request that you obey any signs that inform a smoke free area. These areas will mainly be enclosed buildings and doorways to these buildings.
On site fire emergency response is provided by , a 24 hr stand-by team of fire-fighters from the RAF, Local Authority, and Industrial Services.
The crews are not there to take the place of the local Fire Service, but are on hand for that initial response. In some emergencies, seconds can make the difference between life and death!
To make your show as safe as possible, the team are happy to offer advice on any matter relating to Fire Prevention, so please feel free to pop over and have a chat. If necessary, we can inspect your campsite to check that it is safe. Advice costs nothing, so please come and see us if you have any doubts over safety.
With the show organiser’s permission, we do have the power to enforce fire regulations. Usually, there is no need for confrontation, but if we do see a breach in complying with the regulations then we will have no hesitation in reporting the matter directly to the show organisers. That said, we enjoy an excellent spirit of cooperation with all show goers, we know you, and you know us, which is what makes this set-up so successful! Above all, please have a safe and enjoyable show!
Using two ex-Local Authority Dennis Fire Appliances, the crews have responded to a variety of emergencies in the past. They carry with them a wide range of specialist equipment enabling them to deal effectively with whatever situation presents itself, be it Fire, Rescue or Special Service. Their specialist knowledge of the showground and many of the vehicles and associated risks contained on it mean that they can get to work very quickly indeed.
Kent council Fire Service have advised that all stall holders should fit their stall with a Fire alarm.
On site medical emergency response for this year’s show will be provided by Medics Plus.
Medics are pleased to be providing a 24hr FIRST AID, AMBULANCE & MEDICAL service in support of this year’s show.
