Therefore we have teamed up with GoCarShare to help encourage as many of you as possible to share car journeys by offering lifts. Just click on our page gocarshare.com/events/the-showman-s-show and add your journey, whether you are driving or looking for a lift, and they will match you with someone going the same way. It is also a good way to save money on your journey and make some new industry contacts on the way.
