Registration is now open for this year’s Emergency Services Show, which is being held on Sunday 16 September at Cotswold Airport.
Exhibitors, traders and charities are invited to request stalls at the event, which attracts thousands of people from Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and further afield.
There is a charge for commercial traders, but charities and non-commercial exhibitors can attend for free – visit www.emergencyservicesshow.com to find out more and register your interest.
On-line ticket sales for the Show are also now open, allowing people to get their tickets in advance and use the fast track gate on the day. Admission prices have been held at the same level as 2017 – £6 for adults, £3 for children under 16, and free for children under three.
Tickets can be bought via www.emergencyservicesshow.com
The Emergency Services Show is organised by a charitable trust and supported by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Wiltshire Police and South Western Ambulance Service.
All profits are ploughed into supporting charities that work with the emergency services and running the next event, and donations totalling over £150,000 have been made since the first show in 2005.
Chairman of the trustees, Chris Harvey, said: “We always say that the Show is a chance for people to meet their emergency services without having an emergency first, and it is also a superb showcase for the many charitable organisations that support the work of the emergency services, from blood bikes to air ambulances, and from search & rescue teams to volunteer trauma doctors.”
The Emergency Services Show will be open from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 16 September. The event is made possible by the support of sponsors including Grist Environmental, Cotswold Airport, AC Nurdens of Malmesbury, and Digitickets.
