Disabled Ticketing Policy
Bath & West Shows Ltd is pleased to operate a scheme to provide one complimentary entry ticket for a Carer/PA of a qualified disabled visitor to enable them to access the Show.

If you wish to apply for a Carer/PA ticket in order to have assistance at the Show please purchase a standard ticket at the relevant price and submit your request and supporting documentation (details of where to send the information can be found below). If the disabled visitor is a child, please purchase a child ticket at the current rate and apply for the free carer ticket in the same way. Please note free tickets are not available on the gate and must be applied for in advance. 

Supporting Documentation:
All Carer/PA tickets require evidence of supporting documentation. This is mandatory in order for tickets to be processed.
Please include evidence of at least one of the following (printed or scanned copies are acceptable);

  • Middle or Higher Rate DLA for care and/or mobility
  • Receipt of personal independence payment (PIP)
  • Evidence of being severely sight impaired
  • Recognised assistance dog ID card
Please send your documentation and booking reference to us by email at [email protected]

All Carer/PA ticket requests, with supporting evidence, must be submitted by the application deadline on 21 May 2018 to enable the complimentary ticket to be dispatched to you ahead of the Show.

Camping Tickets
Camping facilities are available within a stewarded area during the Show.

Camping passes only allow admission into the campsite, not into the show. Show admission tickets can be purchased as required but must be purchased in advance with your camping pass.

The pitches are 6.5 metres wide and you can either camp or bring a caravan. There are toilets, showers, an elsan point and a water stand pipe.

The pitch fees are £15 per night and are available from Tuesday night to Saturday night during the Show. Departure is required by 10.30 following the night of the booking and arrivals by 20.30 daily.
