It will speed up the Registration on the day if you can complete an Entry Form and bring with you. You will then be able to just collect your numbered sticker and pay your entry fee if not a member. Remember you can also join the Friends and gain free entry.

Don't worry if you cannot print out a form as you will be able to complete one at the day.
