There are many temporary toilets around the showground including disabled toilets which also have baby changing facilities. In addition permanent toilets can be found in the Water Play Area, Garden Building and Museum.

Lost Family

Rotherham Show gets very busy, so it may be helpful for your party to have an assembly point within Clifton Park should you become separated. Please ensure that children are with a responsible adult at all times and not allowed to roam around the show unattended.

If you find you have been separated from your child, please look for a show steward or go to Event Control*. If you find a child that is obviously lost please stay where you are and get someone else to alert a steward or go to Event Control*. Please DO NOT TRY AND TAKE THE CHILD ANYWHERE, someone will come to you.

TIP: Take a photo of your child/children on your mobile phone on the morning you are visiting Rotherham Show so you have their clothing, hair style, and an up to date photo on hand at all times.
