Following a change of licensee, the 2005 edition was held at the same venue as a two-day event to raise funds for Lord Mayor Treloar's College, and was restricted to 500 tickets.[1][2][3]

In 2006, the event took place in the grounds of the Exchange Hotel, Farnham, moving inside in the evening.[4]

In 2007, the event was moved to the Rural Life Centre, Tilford,[5] and it reverted to being a three-day event in 2010.[6]
