Can I bring my dog?

You can but it must be kept on a lead throughout the event. You should also consider whether the proximity to loud vintage aircraft is suitable.

Is there wheelchair access?

The show-ground and aerodrome is essentially a large, flat grassed field – so the site is subject to weather conditions.
