Hi Maggie

It's held at the New Village Hall,Rawreth.
If you don't know that part of the county,it's between Wickford and Rayleigh and south of Chelmsford.
Held on the last Saturday of April.
The last 3 years shows are on my blog pages,if you are interested.

As I'm in Chelmsford it's not too far at all. Hope next year I can make it.
