What's Else is On?

Entertainment including amazing Old-Time Fairground, Bouncy Castles, Falconry Experience, Punch & Judy! We are also having a flying demonstration of birds of prey in the main arena​ and gundogs will be in the main arena. This year, weather permitting, we will be inviting adults into the main arena to have a go at steering a big steam engine as many have expressed an interest in this.

There is a licensed bar on the rally site (not the camping field) and all Day & Evening catering facilities.

Where the Show is Held

Your tickets will be available to collect when you arrive at the show.

On the weekend of the show, please arrive AFTER 1pm on Friday. The gates may be locked before that time and there's nowhere to park on the lane. There's a big Asda nearby in Spondon so you could park there or in the Co-op car park in Borrowash at the top of the lane leading to the rally should you have mis-timed your arrival. If you park in the main Castle car park you will be charged. Please don't enter before 1pm even if the gates are open as we have young cadets working in the field before noon. If you do go onto the camping field before noon you will be directed to the pay and display Castle car park opposite. You can also arrive on Saturday morning if that is easier.

On arrival you will be given a registration slip to fill in so please bring a pen!

If you have a blue badge PLEASE wave it at the stewards who will give you your registration form otherwise you WILL be in the wrong place.

Likewise if you're needing to either reserve a pitch for friends or are joining friends already there tell the gate steward and make arrangements for your friends to meet you.

Once you're clutching your registration form you will be directed to your pitch. You can then get set up, have a cuppa at your leisure then take the completed form back to the stewards who will exchange it for your envelope containing your camping passes and wristbands which you need to wear all weekend to gain entrance to the showground. Each person has one wristband which is for both days and Saturday night's entertainment on the showground.

Hi Pam,
Still here and was looking forward to Elvaston but the email said no single camping this year, they tried that last year then changed their minds so thought Id ask you is there single camping or not,

Hello, Barry, good to hear from you.

I have tried and tried to make them change their minds but it's no go and they said the won't budge.

You are still saving a fiver on the advance public price but I understand that won't tempt you and other single people.

Kind Regards

Pam

The field we camp on was near empty last year so it will be even emptier this year then.
Sorry Pam I certainly wont be there.

I know Barry and am so sorry to lose a valuable supporter like you.

In the past I had total control but alas no longer and posts like yours make me feel terrible. New people have come in and interferred with my section and won't be told what works. I have over 42 years of experience running the camping section and count many of this group as my friends.

I know you stayed in the generator field which is now pretty much redundant as so many units now have solar panels but the genny field will be retained and perhaps people who prefer a quieter, less busy pitch can stay there. [Don't all rush at once!!]

Are we saying thar as a single person I would not be allowed to camp at Elvaston if so could you explain why please

Hi Graham, of course single campers are very welcome this year. Barry isn't coming because there is no further discount price for singles in addition to the already discounted UKCS price.

All units booking through UKCS whether one or two adults pays a special discount price of 45 if they book and pay in advance otherwise it's 60 for all who turn up on spec not having booked.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Pam

we had thought although hadn't mentioned it to you Pam was to put motorhomes on that field. We get alot of them and that field is bit flatter it also spreads the units out so minimizing fire risk
