Getting to the Show by Car:
From the M4:
Exit at Junction 10, take the A329(M) towards Bracknell for 3.2 miles and take the B3408 exit towards Binfield. Go 1 mile, passing straight through 2 sets of traffic lights; NOTE: it is best NOT to turn Left at the second set of traffic lights, even though it is signposted Newbold College; instead continue straight until the next roundabout and take the first exit signposted "Binfield/Newbold College" on to Popeswood Road; after 0.3 mile the venue is signposted on the right.
From the M3:
Exit at Junction 3 and take the A322 towards Bracknell. Go straight at first traffic lights. After another 3.2 miles, go straight at second traffic lights (Coral Reef sign on your left), and straight again at third traffic lights (Sainsbury’s and Hilton on your left). Take the second exit (straight ahead) at the first roundabout (Bracknell Leisure Centre on the left), then second exit again at the second roundabout. As you approach the third roundabout take the right lane, bear right (passing two exits), bear left (signposted "Western Industrial Area") to pass under the railway bridge and immediately turn left (again signposted "Western Industrial Area") on to Easthampstead Road. At the end of the road turn left onto "Western Road". At the next roundabout turn right, signposted "Wokingham B3408", then immediately take the second exit at the next roundabout, again signposted "Wokingham B3408". At the next roundabout take the second exit, signposted "Binfield/Newbold College" on to Popeswood Road; after 0.3 mile the venue is signposted on the right.

Please Note Improved Parking for the 2017 Show:
We must apologise that some people were incorrectly informed by Stewards that the car par was full and that there was no more parking available, several persons sadly turning around and going home again. However, there was plenty of free parking (easily enough for 30 or more cars) on Popeswood Road immediately outside the church building, where there are no parking restrictions. Our 2017 stewards will be better informed!
