Bring and Buy

As usual, we will be hosting our bring-and-buy stand. If you have items to sell, you can save time by printing out our booking-in form and completing it before the show. Please note that although this speeds up the booking-in process, it does not eliminate it - we will still need to check that your items correspond to what's written on the form!
