We have just had this email at the bottom of the page from Live promotions about the 2019 shows
We have applied for a stand at the shows they organise, normally vehicle on the clubs stands are free including driver and passenger but now everyone has to pay £10.00 each, and at the moment we are not even sure if this includes camping as well if it does not its £75.00 for 2 adults and 2 children.
This make it prohibitive to have a stand, because I donít see why members should have to pay for
Fuel
Admission
Camping
Then you read the bottom line asking us to promote the shows in all our media channels.
So they want us to promote the event free, and still be charged for going to the show
I wonder if they realise its clubs that get their members to go to the shows, and that every page in every magazine even club magazine has to be paid for, by the club

If your application is successful you can book up to 10 vehicles at £10 each to include a weekend ticket for the driver only. Each vehicle entered is entitled to one other discounted weekend ticket at £10 for their passenger. (Maximum 20 discounted weekend tickets available per club)
In the meantime please be sure to advertise the show through all media channels to help promote this fantastic event.

It's a known fact that attendances at these shows are declining and this is a cynical ploy to raise more money to counteract and this will result only in less clubs attending and attendances will decline even more.
One make shows are declining in popularity. All the local shows I attend are open to any make and type of classic vehicle and are combined with steam engines

The smaller shows are going. They canít compete with the few larger shows, in particular the Peterborough show. When the smaller shows go, and so the competition does too, the larger shows can charge what they want. This makes it very expensive for individuals, clubs and traders. The cost of a family camping for the weekend is approaching what a weeksí holiday would cost. On a personal note, I prefer the smaller events like Alan mentions.
