Attention all show managers and show organisers

As you are no doubt aware it is becoming increasingly difficult to locate ideal venues on which to hold your Shows, and with the scarcity comes higher rental costs, with the result that your organization is left with very little profit, after a great deal of hard work and effort by your various committees. The answer of course is to find a purpose built venue on which to hold your Shows, a venue that is sympathetic with your needs and costs, with accessibility for your exhibitors, and generous Car Parking facilities.
Such a venue exists on the outskirts of the village of Digswell in Hertfordshire, it can be located by leaving junction 6 off the A1 Motorway, and following the A1000 signs to Welwyn Garden City, the village of Digswell is clearly marked, and once under the viaduct the Showground can be easily located just ½ mile on the B1000, the distance from the A1 Motorway to the venue is approx 4 miles.
The venue covers 4 acres of land, with a hard standing Car Park, fully fenced for security, and a custom built Club House, which has a fully equipped kitchen, complete with Microwave Oven, Dishwasher, Hot Plate Gridle, Electric Cooker, Refrigerators, and Freezer, these facilities can be used by your members to generate profit from your show.
