Isn't there a plan that might have been used maybe once or twice before?

A few things have changed down on the farm since W&P was there, but can't see it being a problem really.

When I went there last year, access is different, one way in/out. Old stall area penned off.

Oh you mean the layout they had for Military World show?

I can't imagine they'd keep that config for the massive W&P show... the layout they used for MW was the same they use for every other show they host pretty much (the Hop Farm has loads of events, not just W&P). MW was never going to be W&P, so they didn't have to change anything.

I hear it's going to stick to the old Hop Farm layout. Which was better than the original Folkestone layout, However, I thought the Folkestone 2016 site layout had a lot going for it. Taking people through the displays straight from the entrance was really good. I got the impression many displays got much more attention than they seemed to in the past, especially those that normally get tucked in the corners or sited in the outer reaches.

that adds 50p on the price of whatever you sell.
