What is your Carer Ticketing Policy?

All free Carer/Personal Assistant tickets require evidence of supporting documentation. This is mandatory in order for the Carer/Personal Assistant ticket to be issued. Please bring along a copy of one of the below relevant documents:
Middle or Higher Rate DLA for care and/or mobility
Receipt of personal independence payment (PIP)
Evidence of being severely sight impaired
Recognised assistance dog ID card

Please make your way to the Show and come to the ticket office where your Carer/PA ticket will be issued and you will have fast track entry. Please do not queue at the on-day sales points as they are not able to issue the free Carer/Personal Assistant ticket.
