It’s a virtual programme in the palm of your hand! This year’s app is sponsored by Home From Home Holiday Cottages.
If you bought the 2016 or 2017 app , good news.. you get this year’s as FREE update! For first timers, it will cost you just £1.99. Just make sure to re-install it!
A range of car parks have been set up to cater for the event tohelp make your event experience as enjoyable as possible.
The car parks available are tiered based on their distance to the event, there is also a brand new dedicated Park & Ride service.
In order to be able to support the increasing numbers of visitors and to allow more space for ground events, we will now need to expand the event on to Oystermouth Road. As a result, it will be necessary to close a section of Oystermouth Road for the weekend beginning on Friday, June 29, to allow exhibitors to have enough time to set up ahead of the start of the show the following day.
