Are men allowed to come?
Of course! The exhibition is a celebration of the women in the motorcycling world, however there is nothing to stop men enjoying that too. There will be interesting talks, exciting things to do and things to buy, regardless of gender. We welcome everyone!
When and where is the show?
Day tickets- 9am-6pm, Saturday 20th August 2022 at Tutbury Castle, Castle Street, Tutbury, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, DE13 9JF. Campers can arrive after 4pm on Friday 19th and stay until 4pm on Sunday 21st.
What is your COVID-19 Entry policy?
We will be following all the relevant government guidelines at the time of the event, and will update any requirements closer to the time if necessary.
When do I get my tickets?
We do not post tickets, all our tickets are ‘e-tickets’ which to keep simple are essentially an order number confirmation email. You will receive an order number via the email address you signed up with when you purchased tickets *Please Note* this often goes into the junk folder. Come to the show with the name of the lead ticket holder (who purchased the tickets) and the order number to gain access.
Do you have a cloakroom?
Yes we have a cloakroom manned throughout the event. Each large item (helmet, bag, jacket) will be charged at £1 per item.
Can I park on site & do I need to pay to park my motorcycle?
You can park on site and motorcycles are completely free to park within the car park on site- please follow the marshals’ directions. Please note that parking is on grass so bring a puck or something solid for your side stand. Car parking is only available on site via a pre-booked pass available in the Tickets section. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY CAR PARKING SPACES AVAILABLE ON THE DAY. If car parking is not available as an option then we have unfortunately sold out of allocated spaces. There is limited paid parking in the town.
Can I bring children?
Whilst there are no specific children’s activities, children are welcome; and all Under 18’s are allowed in for free. All we as is that there is one adult (18 or older) for every child under 18, and that you select the free children’s ticket when you book your adult tickets. This allows us to monitor numbers and ensure we cater for the right attendees.
Can I bring my own food and drink?
Whilst we do allow you to bring in your own food and non-alcoholic drinks, we do want to encourage you to support the reasonably-priced small local businesses that we are using for our catering. Hot drinks, cold drinks, alcoholic drinks and a range of hot and cold food will be available to purchase on site. A reasonably-priced bar will be available in the show itself and open until late.
Is the venue suitable for those needing disabled access?
The venue is grass and gravel based, and as a historic building there are unfortunately some parts of the castle that are inaccessible for those with mobility issues. We will ensure that most activities are accessible as best we can. Access to the Great Hall is only up a narrow flight of stairs, so if you are interested in the talk about the Great Hall please let us know and we will ensure a guide comes down to speak with you and bring some artefacts. There are disabled toilets throughout the show.
Are pets allowed?
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome. Please be mindful that there are moving vehicles on site so dogs must be kept under control and on leads at all times. No, Fido doesn’t need a ticket 😉
Do you offer student or senior discounts?
No discounts are offered.
Where can I find the timetable of activities?
We will be updating the timings of events closer to the show, but this will also be available to see at the info point on site. Some things start when the show opens so please come early if you wish to experience everything!
Can I stay for the evening entertainment if I don’t have a camping pass?
Yes, we are keeping the evening entertainment open for all this year. However you won’t be able to camp on site without a camping pass, and must leave once the evening entertainment has finished.
Are there electrical hook-ups?
These are not available.
What facilities are in the campsite?
We have toilets, a campsite manager available 24/7 and catering and a bar within the castle. There will be catering open Friday night, all day Saturday until late and Sunday day. We do not have showers- to get these hired in and plumbed up would have been incredibly expensive and we would have had to have raised the campsite prices considerably to cover the costs.
Can I leave the campsite?
Yes you can enter and exit the campsite at any time, however please note that the entrance to the castle road is surrounded by residential properties so we ask that you respect our neighbours and leave quietly during night hours. During late hours the gate will be closed (23:30 until 07:00) but if you let the night security know you wish to leave they will open it for you.
Can I camp on site without buying a show ticket?
No, as the campsite is within the show ground, so you will need a valid ticket to enter.
Can I just buy a car parking pass and sleep in my vehicle?
Unfortunately not, as our license doesn’t allow sleeping in cars and our campsite marshalls will patrol to ensure that our license conditions are not breached.
Can I park my motorcycle next to my tent?
Yes, we have managed to satisfy conditions for this to happen this year. Cars will have to remain in the car park.
When can I camp?
Camping passes are valid anytime from 4pm on Friday 19th August until 4pm Sunday 21st August. If you are camping you are welcome to looking around the castle ruins on the Sunday and the tea room at Tutbury Castle will also be open. There’s no rush to leave early this year, so feel free to plan a leisurely ride on the Sunday and pack up the tent later!
Are there any restrictions on what I can bring to the campsite?
We ask that there are no fire pits or open fires, and BBQs must not sit directly on the grass. Please do not bring glass- the campsite is used for grazing for horses at other times of the year so broken glass would be dangerous for the animals. Other than that, please do respect the neighbours and keep noise levels down after 11pm and dispose of your rubbish!
