    Snap. I asked that on Sunday. Still not sure yet but it is likely to be 2 days out of Thursday/Friday/Saturday if we do get there.

    Hope nobody has trouble with their reversing camera while you're away.

    Having been to the show before the only thing I can say is that there was very little in the way of accessories and I came away very disappointed. :(

    That is the reason we haven't been for some years. Looking at the exhibitors list this year, though, there seem to be more than there were.

    Was that the October NEC or the February NEC? The October show is considerably bigger than the February show. That said both shows are horrendously expensive to exhibit at for us smaller traders We have been attending for years and it doesn't get any easier IMG_0018.JPG We have a "slot" early Sunday morning to get the Van Bitz exhibition unit in, and we are at the show until a week the following Monday!

    Talk about Stir Crazy lol

    It was October Eddie but about 7 or 8 years ago. Having done many family history fairs I don't envy you.

    For anyone thinking of attending the NEC Show it is worth booking your tickets in advance as cheaper & quicker to get in (y) Can even choose the email option & print your own tickets so no waiting. Even though you don't have to pay for children they still need a ticket to get in so don't forget to add these. Use code TCCW up to 12th October to buy at discounted rate - this offer is for Caravan Club members but never had to prove membership yet :) There may be other club offers out there but usually all a similar discount.
    "Book your advanced member discounted tickets
    Book tickets early and benefit from a special Caravan Club members advance ticket price of just £6.75 for seniors (60 + years) and £7.75 for adults*. Children age 16 years and under are admitted free of charge when accompanied by a paying adult/senior. Tickets include parking and a show guide (subject to availability).

    *Ticket offer valid until 11.59pm October 12 2015, after which tickets revert to on-the-door prices: £11 Senior, £12 Adult. A transaction fee of £1.25 applies. "
