Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we've made the very sad & difficult decision to Cancel the 2020 Wartime in the Vale show. Unfortunately all events are in the same position and after taking UK Government advice and before it affects deposits & booking any further we have decided to cancel.
*Public Camping refunds have been automatically refunded.
*Traders have been contacted with offer of a refund or roll over to 2021
*We will be in touch with anyone else we need to refund.
Thank you for your support over the years, its going to be a very quiet season for everybody by the looks of it.

***Easter 2020 Road Run***
Detail to be confirmed:
Meet at camp for 10.30am leaving at 11.00am
We extend a warm welcome to you to join our road run. Unless there are impassable snowdrifts (6ft or over), we intend to 'patrol' along meandering byways, cheat almost certain death through a shallow ford, and risk sniper fire through an eerie wood. WARNING Anyone attempting this winding course along the high-ways & bi-ways in a large vehicle might be well advised to be prepared for 95-point turns, and carry their own provisions, as lunch waits for now man. (or Women)
We will stop for lunch at 13.00hrs where we will be given a warm welcome, warm drink and a lunch will be provided. (Ashdown Military Club Members this will be paid for, guests will be charged a small fee)
Meet at 10.30am to leave for 11.00am Ashwdown Camp WR11 7PA.
