Entries for the trials are expected from the victorious British world champion squad and other international elite riders. The popular Lakeside area has been revitalised along with the members and deli enclosures and the 2018 newcomer to the shopping village, The World of Food and Wine is expanding.

The camp site, which now has over 1,300 pitches will complemented just up the road in 2019 by a Glamping field, to add extra style to the Badminton experience.
