Places for the 2014 Christmas Cracker on 7th December are going very fast. As at 25/07/14 we have received 501 entries out of a capacity of 2000 so enter now to avoid disappointment. We have reached full capacity early for each of the past 18 years so don't leave it to the last minute. There are absolutely no entries available on the day.

We have changed our online entry supplier this year which means the total cost of entry, including processing fee, is lower than in 2013. You can pay by credit/debit card or via PayPal.
