TICKET POLICY for tickets for disabled visitors

Disabled visitors are entitled to a concession rate ticket with a free carer ticket for every full price concession ticket purchased.  Valid documentation must be produced on request and must be one of the following:-​

Middle or Higher Rate DLA for care and/or mobility

Receipt of a current and valid Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

Evidence of being severely sight impaired

Recognised assistance dog ID card

Current and valid evidence of receiving Attendance Allowance


As you enter Holbecks Park, please ensure you have your Blue Badge parking permit visible on your windscreen so that our parking stewards can direct you to the disabled car parking which is available on both Layham and Hadleigh Car Parks


Mobility Scooters can be hired direct with Event Mobility and need to be reserved before the Show.  The link for bookings is

Telephone Bookings on 01386 725391 can also be made.


The Showground is accessed from the Disabled Car Park along a grass walkway to the Pedestrian Entrances opposite. The showground is entirely grass based and there are undulations throughout the site meaning that those in wheelchairs, on scooters and with any mobility issues may find some areas of Holbecks Park difficult.  If you need any assistance at all please ask a steward and they will be happy to help.


The Show is dog friendly and many of our visitors bring their canine companions along. This of course extends to Guide dogs, who are very welcome on site and welcomed in all areas of the show (non guide dogs aren’t permitted in certain marquees). 

We do respectfully ask that ALL dogs aren’t taken into the livestock lines as our sheep and cattle can’t tell the difference between a guide dog and a general pooch and are generally afraid of ALL dogs which we’d rather avoid for our stock welfare please


Each toilet block on the showground has a dedicated disabled toilet.


The Show can be very lively, so if you need a quiet space for a bit of timeout we recommend heading towards the area by the gun dog scurry and under the trees beside the donkey rides for a bit of space should you need it.
