The BMF May Show is going ahead despite recent wet weather

Show organisers held a meeting with the showground yesterday (Thursday 10th) and have confirmed that the BMF May show WILL be going ahead as planned.

The showground is wet but the ground staff are doing a fantastic job of racking and rolling. Clearly with all the recent rain the grass plots are somewhat bereft of grass but they are intact.

The organisers have also contacted all traders who have booked marquees offering them the option to order wooden boarding floors.

In addition, the organisers have arranged for an overflow car park at the Bauer offices (less than 10 mins walk to the showground) and they are also providing a shuttle bus service from this car park to the show site (approx 2 mins). This car park will be used after the showground’s useable car park fills up. Marshals and traffic officers will direct vehicles from the Marriott roundabout.

The weather looks as though it’s going to be fine for the next 3 days at least which will help the drying and draining of the ground. All efforts are being made to ensure that there is minimal disruption to the show and the

Show organisers have also announced that a big screen will be showing the Chelsea v Bayurn Munic Champions League Final game on Saturday the 19th, as well as that it will be showing the Moto GP & live race on Sunday!

Everything that can be done to help ensure the success of the show is being done. There are a lot of people working very hard in the background to ensure the show happens and everyone has a great time.
