The B.S.R.A. Big 7 National Scooter Rally moves to a new venue… A statement from the club reads..

“Unfortunately we can no longer host our rally at the Hop Farm, due to sudden price increases imposed on us by the Hop Farm. These were without any notice or leeway for negotiation and we simply could not afford them.

The good news is we have found a new venue but the dates have changed.

*****The Big 7 National Scooter Rally will now be held at The South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex, RH17 6TL over the weekend of 14th – 16th July 2023*****

All advance tickets purchased via Skiddle will automatically be transferred to the new venue and dates – you do not need to do anything. If you are unable to attend the rally on the new dates, then you will need to contact Skiddle for your refund 03333010101

All Glamping Tent bookings will also automatically be transferred and again, if you are unable to attend, you will need to contact Honeybells for your refund.

If you have booked an electrical hook up pitch direct with the Hop Farm, you’ll need to contact the Hop Farm direct touring@thehopfarm.co.uk to enquire about a refund. You will be able to book a new electrical hook up ticket at the new venue via Skiddle on our website shortly.

The South of England Showground will be to be a great new rally site for us, as it allows us to continue with the type of 80’s style scooter rally that you’ve all become accustomed to from Big 7.

We would like to thank you all for your support over the years at the Hop Farm and look forward to seeing you all at the South of England Showground in July”
