Date: 13th August, 2018
It’s now a month until the 12th Emergency Services Show, which is again being held at Cotswold Airport, off the A429 north of Malmesbury.
The Show will be on Sunday 16 September between 10am and 4pm, and tickets are now available on-line at a cheaper advance sale price, which also give you fast track entrance on the day.
By visiting www.emergencyservicesshow.com you can buy adult tickets for £6 (£6.50 on the gate) and £3 for children under 16 (£3.50 on the gate) – children under three are admitted for free.
Amongst the attractions planned for this year are police dog displays, a multi-agency road traffic collision simulation, a wide range of new and vintage emergency vehicles, and – for the first time – the Rockets Children’s Motorcycle Display Team.
The Emergency Services Show is organised by a team of volunteers, mostly drawn from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Wiltshire Police and South Western Ambulance Service.
Since the first event in 2005, more than £150,000 has been donated to groups that support the work of the emergency services, and the Show committee is now a registered charity in its own right.
The event is made possible by the support of sponsors including Grist Environmental, AC Nurdens of Malmesbury and Digitickets.
The website www.emergencyservicesshow.com is also open for exhibitors and traders to book space at the Show – although commercial traders will be charged, charities and non-commercial exhibitors can attend for free. All exhibitors are asked to register in advance.
Chris Harvey, chairman of the Show charitable trust, said: “We are delighted to be back at Cotswold Airport this year, and we can promise a great day out for the family. We will have emergency vehicle rides, police dog displays, a fairground, vehicles, equipment and personnel from all of the ‘blue light’ services, stands from a range of charities that work with the emergency services, and so much more!”
