Advance tickets for this year’s Emergency Services Show are now available to buy on-line!
The Show – which is being supported this year by Grist Group of Companies - is being held at Hullavington airfield near Chippenham on Sunday 7 September, with gates open from 10am to 4pm.
Anyone wanting to buy tickets ahead of the event can visit www.emergencyservicesshow.com – the price is £6 for adults and £3 for children under 16, with the under threes getting in for free.
Chairman of the organising committee, Chris Harvey, said: “Buying your tickets in advance will make it easier to get into the showground, as you can use the fast track gate rather than having to queue. Pre-sales will be available until a week before the Show, so we’d recommend you get on-line now and book your visit!”
The Emergency Services Show is organised by a committee of volunteers drawn from Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service, Wiltshire Police, South Western Ambulance Service and the Highways Agency.
All profits are ploughed into supporting charities that work with the emergency services and running the next event, and the 2013 Show broke all records, with thousands of people visiting the event and £26,000 being donated to good causes as a result.
Mr Harvey said: “We always say that the Show is a chance for people to meet their emergency services without having an emergency first. It is also a fantastic 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.”
Amongst the attractions already confirmed for this year's Show are fire engine and police car rides, a wide range of new and vintage vehicles from all three ‘blue light’ services, displays by the Wiltshire Police dog section, appearances by two air ambulances and much more!
There is still time for individuals and organisations to get involved with the Show, with pitches available for charities, exhibitors and traders. To register your interest, visit www.emergencyservicesshow.com
