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- 10am-7pm, Saturday 21st August 2021 at Tutbury Castle, Castle Street, Tutbury, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, DE13 9JF. Campers can arrive after 4pm on Friday 20th and stay until 10am on Sunday 22nd.
What is your COVID-19 Entry policy?
All attendees aged 11 and over (little ones under 11 are exempt) will need to demonstrate their COVID-19 Status before entering the show by providing EITHER:
- Proof of a negative NHS Lateral Flow Test taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the event (the Lateral Flow Test result is valid for 72 hours, so we recommend if you are camping that you take your Lateral Flow Test on the Friday morning to cover your entire stay at the event), OR
- Proof of full vaccination – both doses received (with the second at least 14 days prior to the event).
Further information on how to submit your results is available here. *medical exemptions apply.
When do I get my tickets?
We do not post tickets, all our tickets are ‘e-tickets’ which to keep simple in our first year 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. If you purchased a ticket for the 2020 event which was cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus, your order number will remain the same and valid for the 2021 event, unless you requested a refund. If you have bought a ticket and can’t find your order number, we will still have you on our system so don’t worry if we are busy and can’t get back to you before the event- we can always find your order!
How do I book on to the Royal Enfield test rides?
All information can be found here.
Where is the event schedule?
The Timetable of events is live- click here!
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 16’s are allowed in for free. All we as is that there is one adult (18 or older) for every child under 16, 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. There is a discounted ticket for 16 and 17 year olds.
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 for the campsite once the show has closed.
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 very soon, 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?
You will not be able to stay for the evening entertainment if you do not have a camping pass. This area is restricted in space and was always advertised solely for the camping element. We will look at this for next year as it has proved popular, but for now you will need to leave the show ground when the show shuts at 7pm.
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. There will be catering open Friday night, all day Saturday until late and Sunday morning. There is also a marquee where you can sit and chill which will be open all night after the entertainment has finished (please note you aren’t allowed to camp in here). 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. There is a separate area for sleeping vehicles.
Can I park my motorcycle next to my tent?
All vehicles (with the exception of sleeper vehicles) must be parked in the car park, not the campsite. It’s only a very short walk (2-3 minutes) to the campsite though!
When can I camp?
Camping passes are valid anytime from 4pm on Friday 20th August until 10am Sunday 22nd August.
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!
