Bigger, better, more indoor space, more activities, more IKO, venue stage
same price tickets, same price club plots
A lot has happened since JAE 2016 and our last visit to Newark Showground. The visitor survey told us what we already knew - more indoor space please, more toilets, better facilities and, of course, more of what JAE does best. We also surveyed club reps and team managers to find out what they wanted and, of course, we never shy away from hearing what you really think on social media (unlike some shows we might mention!) One thing was clear even before we started JAE 2016, Newark just wasn't the right place to be. It offered much but, sadly, did not deliver enough. Since then we have been on the hunt to find the perfect venue and to make JAE even better! We announced a superb new date, allowing families to bring their children, now that we are at the tail end of the school Summer holidays. So, yes, since 12 September we have been very busy!
For 2017 we will be at an exciting venue, one we know from years back and one that has seen a regeneration since we last visited. JAE was the first ever event to bring Drift Taxis to the UK and we did that at the East of England Showground in 2004! Starting 2017 and for many years to come we will be back at the all new Peterborough Arena. 31 August-3 September 2017. Don't miss it!
Our new home offers is a huge amount of potential and here's what we already have planned;
...but not forgetting all the things that make JAE great. Camping on your club stand, IKO, fireworks, open barbecues, beer n burgers. We will also be taking our very own food vendors with us of course such as Coffee Cube and Kamikaze Kitchen. And the JAE Team are already signed up for another year to help you when you get there.
