Shopping cart Instructions:
After selecting the number of entries you want, click ‘Checkout’. You can register or check out as a guest. If you register, your information stays on our system and you won’t have to do it again on future visits.
Once you have filled in the required details the system performs its magic. If you are entering from the UK, 20% VAT will be applied automatically. If you are entering from any other EU country, VAT will not be added but you will be asked for your VAT number. We need this to comply with EU tax law. If you are entering from outside the EU you will just pay the entry fee. Click ‘continue’ to go to the SagePay payment page. Enter your credit card details – Visa or Mastercard accepted. When payment is complete you will be emailed a receipt including a printable pdf.
The system has been thoroughly tested, but technology sometimes does unexpected things, in which case click this link and we will sort it!
