Car fan and Deccas drummer Tony wangled us a place on this years bill at this large car event.
Last year over 4,000 people attended with 700 rides from 100 or so supercars.
This year they have been given the go ahead to drive for longer which means more rides and more action all day long.
Live bands including a secret special guest(The Deccas??) helicopter rides (subject to Dunsfold approval) kids rides (including Roary the racing car) car club displays, fun fair, bouncy castles, two massive marquees to shelter from the sun, great food, loads of stands and stalls to keep you occupied, fire engine demonstrations, double decker bus rides.
£20 standard supercar rides (2 high speed passenger laps)
Entrance will be £7 per car with monies being raised for The Children’s Trust.

Its SXSW Time Again
It happens every year in January: Artists are beginning to call and complain to me that South by Southwest (SXSW) didn’t select them for a showcase this year. But having a showcase is not the only reason to attend a music conference and I invite you to think differently about this.
Over my 13 years of attending SXSW I’ve seen plenty of bands who did get a coveted showcase and not only did they not get signed, but also they did not meet any key players in the business or benefit their careers in any way by showcasing.
Reasons for this included: They received awful showcase venues and times; they were busy loading and unloading gear, babysitting band members, or getting tanked at parties to make the journey worthwhile; or they opted for their measly $100 stipend instead of for the gold: the festival pass.
Here’s my musician’s South by Southwest survival guide to get you through one of the most massive and overwhelming conferences of the year. This guide is not just for SXSW; it’s also for any music conference out there!
