This is a new venue for the event, I went in today and its very nice, kitchen facilities and a microwave, tables chairs (now theres a luxury!) and even carpet.
Free parking, unload by the door if needed then park up.
There's shops nearby (behind it) with a Sainsburys Express, newsagents, chemist, chip shop (not sure of opening times), pub that serves meals (The Flintlock).

This is looking to be quite popular this year!
Really looking forward to it, I’m currently working on a brand new No Parking front flipper and Limpet XXT but I really need to get a spinner sorted.
