So, if I go and visit this show, I get in for free. Unless I exhibit my imp. Then they want me to pay a tenner to register! :x
No, I don't think so.
Cleevelys classic show, you are the weakest link, goodbye.

Seems a rather strange business model.. no cars = nothing to view for free... hmmm...

I used to go to Tram Sunday in Fleetwood, not far from Cleveleys. <https://www.visitfleetwood.info/recreation-and-entertainment/tram-sunday/index.php> In those days it was free, but then they started charging exhibitors, so I stopped going. It is a very strange logic that lets the punters in for nowt, but charges the vehicle owner to exhibit! :(

They would probably say its to go towards public liability insurance, and unless they have it, which they cant afford without charges, the show wont go ahead, just in case a member of the public walks into your car and knocks themselves out kind of thing? :roll:

Does seem a bit reverse logic charging those who make the show, but then if everyone who didnt agree didnt go, then they would have to have a rethink, typical of the majority of British folk just put up with it and say nowt.

Tram Sunday used to be free. The local chamber of commerce etc. paid for it.
When you click the link to book for the Cleeveleys event, you get put through to an event company's website. Clearly, somebody is making money out of the exhibitors. :evil:
