The event will open half an hour earlier in 2016 (9.30am to 5pm) as there is even more to see and do so this provides you with a bit more time to get around and see everything.

Please note that given the large crowds at the last show, the venue may need to limit the number of tickets available on the door – so pre-purchasing early guarantees you don’t miss the event as we do expect to sell-out in 2016.
