  1. They can be, we're lucky with Dubs at the Park on venue cost, but unfortunately the venue is in the process of being sold, who knows what the new owners will be like.
     
  2. To take the topic back on track
    I thing exhibitors that put the cost and effort into getting their vehicle to the show and showing it shouldn’t have to pay anything

    Take a classic vehicle to a steam rally or classic show round here and it’s a free weekend

  4. For some shows that can work, not for mine though where every VW through the gate is part of the show and entered in to the Show and shine.

  5. Waldron, East Sussex, next Sunday has the annual end of summer event with a steam road run, classic vehicles and motor bikes. Its free of charge and non exhibitors park in a grass field next to the village and walk in.

    I really like this annual one day event and although there is no camping, its a great family event for anyone who enjoys steam engines, classics and bikes up close. The steam park on the road in the village next to the Star pub, bikes park on the road or in the orchard behind the pub along with the classics on show.

    There is also music and the pub do a great bbq and there is a village coffee shop next to the pub, so something for all.

    I will be going. and next Saturday I will be going to the Tinkers Park, Hadlow Down, East Sussex steam and old buses open day with open top bus trips into Uckfield. Its always a good event and cost only £7. Easy parking and lots to see and do.

  6. One thing Eddie at Techenders mentioned with respect to Brighton Breeze is that once an event grows large you have to have anti-terrorist protection as well and pay the police for it.

  7. I reckon the high prices are because we are perceived to be "well off" because we have a classic vehicle that is "worth money" - so we can afford the high prices.
    See also the prices for the Classic Car Show at the NEC in November - £26.50 for a day ticket plus £12 parking compared to the Caravan show in October at the same venue - £8.50 plus free parking
