After considerable negotiations with the highways agency, local authorities, the East of England showground, police and our approved traffic management supplier; we can announce that we have approval to utilise an additional entry to the site directly off the A1 south bound. This will complement our improved traffic management plan, which will now provide us with 3 entrances and 3 exits
LAMMA 2017 will be held at the East of England showground:
East of England Showground
From Peterborough City Centre – take the Nene Parkway/A1260, follow directions to Oundle Road/A605 and turn right onto this road which will lead you directly to the venue. The brown highway signs indicating East of England Showground will help to guide you.
The journey is approximately 16 minutes from the centre of Peterborough.
From the A1(M) south – continue along the A1(M), passing the Peterborough Services Area (Extra MSA); continue forward onto the A1 and then take the next turn left, signposted East of England Showground. At the junction with the A605, turn left and travel half a mile. At the roundabout, turn right, and you have arrived at Peterborough Showground.
From the A1(M) north – ignore the very first signpost for Peterborough and continue travelling along the A1 picking up the brown highways signposts indicating East of England Showground. Following the confirmation that the A1 Entrance will be open on both Show Days, continue along the A1 ignoring all brown signs to the Showground and enter the Showground directly off the southbound carriageway as indicated by temporary road signs
