Saturday and Sunday  – Taxis

The Taxi Pick-up & Drop-off is located just behind the area for public cars in the Day Pick Up & Drop Off area, just off Dereham Road. Taxi companies have been advised that they must use the Pick-up & Drop-off area so please do not arrange to be picked up from elsewhere.

Please note: At the end of the night on Saturday and Sunday there will be a full road closure on Dereham Road plus other Traffic Management measures in place elsewhere. Any vehicles trying to pick-up from outside the designated areas will cause a public safety issue and will be moved on, so please use the designated facilities and do not do not ask for or accept a pick-up elsewhere.

We also ask you not to use the Longwater Retail Park (including Sainsbury’s). There is not a safe walking route and our facilities are quick and easy to use so it’s not worth risking your safety!

On Foot

Unless you are walking from Easton (which is the village next to the showgrounds) we ask you not to walk to the event on foot as the roads are busy and there are no footpaths, so it’s not safe. We especially ask you not to use Longwater Retail Park to be picked-up or dropped-off; our on site facilities for Buses, Taxi’s and Public Pick-up & Drop-off are well set up and clearly sign posted so it’s quicker, easier and safer for you to use those.
