Only 2 days to go …..

…..until we will all be gathering for another spectacular BAS National Show!   We hope everything is going to plan at your end?  It is certainly busy within the Show Committee as we finalise all the preparations.  We hope to make this even bigger and better than last year and want everyone to enjoy themselves and have a good time.  Any last minute queries, please send to Nationalshow@bas-uk.com.   Don’t forget if you can’t make the journey, the show will be streamed live on the BAS website for the first time – but there is nothing like actually being there!

Charity Auction update….Gala Dinner bookings now closed.

Gala Dinner bookings are now closed but please take a look at the fabulous list of donations offered for the charity auction and if anyone wants to pre-bid because they are not going to be there, email Nationalshow@bas-uk.com and you might be lucky!
