Had a great time at this quilt show with a village feel. Makes excellent use of the racecourse facilities. Great cake in the cafe and it's there for the races too. Fab lemon cake. Very close to the station and town centre.

Easy it's 2 mins walk. Right next to station so just follow the path to the various entrances which are all clearly marked.
