What if I become separated from a child, or lose property?
Make your way to the show office just inside the Viaduct Events Centre entrance where the show team will assist you, as well as make an announcement via the PA.
What if I am injured or become unwell?
We have an onsite St Johns first aid responder, as well as health and safety policies in place to deal with any situation.
What should I bring?
We suggest bring comfortable footwear, sunhats and sunscreen and to leave pets at home. Baby carriers are recommended for young children, as space is very limited on the marina for pushchairs and may be prohibitive during busy periods.
