[mod note RP] Hi Jim - I've merged your post with the already-existing thread on this topic - worth checking back through it as there are some suggestions that may save you some money if planning to go :)

We will be going for all 3 days Tickets came yesterday £150 for 2 of us. Exorbitant prices? Yes. But still a brilliant show. It just means we will spend less at the show on bits and pieces. We stay in a hotel and treat the week-end as part of our holiday. Whether I will still do this once I retire who knows.

Still only (!) £12 if you pre-book. :wink: You can put the saving towards that oh-so-tasty lunch! :barf:

I'll be there tomorrow. You never know, this might be the year that proper classics outnumber moderns. :roll:

Bloody hell Mike arent you getting arty with your photos?? :lol: either that or you haven't sussed the zoom function and can't get the whole car in the frame... :lol:

Great work by all the volunteers again this year, sore throats and feet all round no doubt, offset only slightly by caffeine and cake. Great stand as always 8) 8)

And here is said Middlebridge stand. Thanks to all who visited and great to speak to so many current and previous owners. Good also to see Steve's restoration of No.8 which nearly didn't make it. A huge thanks to him for a massive effort to get it to the stand after some last minute issues.
