Your Questions Answered:
Q. When is the Billing Show?
A. The Billing Show will now take place on Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 August 2012.
Q. Why has the Billing Show been postponed?
A. Due to horrendous weather during the last few weeks, the ground at Billing Aquadrome is water-logged, and is too wet to run a major event. Billing Show organisers, Live Promotions Events Ltd, assessed the ground conditions alongside Billing Aquadrome owners on Tuesday July 17. In their view, an extra two weeks should give ample opportunity for the site to dry out sufficiently for the event to go ahead.
Q. Why wasn’t an alternative venue chosen for the original date?
A. This was not possible due to the nature of the agreement that organisers, Live Promotions Events Ltd, hold with Billing Aquadrome. Given the level of administration and the nature of the contract between Live Promotions Events Ltd and Billing, coupled with the time restrictions, postponement was the only realistic option.?
Q. Why is Bike Fest still able to run at Billing?
A. Bike Fest, organised by Live Promotions Events Ltd, is still able to go ahead as it 80% smaller in size compared to the Billing Land Rover Show. This event is taking place on a small hardstanding/grass area adjacent to the funfair that is usually used for car parking at the Billing Land Rover Show. All other areas of the site remain unusable.?
Q. I’ve bought an advanced ticket – is it still valid for the new dates?
A. Yes, show tickets purchased in advance will be automatically transferred to the new date and the show ticket agent will distribute the relevant information. For all advanced ticket enquires please telephone 0844 873 7331.
Q. Are ticket holders going to be given a full refund if they're unable to make the new dates?
A. All day tickets will have the option to a refund. Please telephone the advanced ticket enquiries line 0844 873 7331 if you have a query about your ticket.
Q. I’ve purchased a camping ticket – is this still valid too?
