    Would you like to spend Easter with us camping a few yards from the centre of Chester? On the racecourse? Of course you would. We've been here a few times now and it really is a good way to spend the Easter break. Your rally Marshals this year are Carol and Eddie.

    CamperFest runs alongside the Chester Food and Drink Festival, located right in the heart of Chester, on the beautiful Chester Racecourse. This unique camping event that runs every Easter is hugely popular.

    Where else can you camp in a city centre? Let alone one as beautiful as Chester on Easter weekend and enjoy so many great events?

    As part of your stay you are invited to visit Easter’s largest Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival for FREE, a foodie heaven right on your doorstep. All this plus the incredibly scenic and historic city of Chester with it’s homely local bars, unique award winning bistros, great pubs and restaurants. Did you know in a recent poll Americans voted it the 5th best city in the World?

    The Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival is ranked the third largest Food & Drink Festival in the UK of its type. The event runs alongside CamperFest, from 4th – 6th April 2015, situated in the centre of Chester Racecourse and set against the back drop of both the city and the amazing Roman Walls.
    During your visit why not take a short drive to some local family attractions such as; Chester Zoo, the breathtaking Chester Cathedral, The adventurous Crocky Trail and the Marine delights of the Blue Planet Aquarium, all within twenty minutes of your Easter home. Or just soak up the surroundings of the River Dee, the Cheshire plains and the superb North Wales Coast.

    I have just had a quick look at the booking form, it looks like the option for electrics may have been removed this year

    Jim, do you know if this is the case?

    If it is still available it might be worth a word of warning to any members who have not been here before, last year was somewhat disorganised (in respect of electrics) :)

    I will find out about electrics, but as I said last year, I very much doubt electrics will be in our area, no matter what the organisers promise.

    We're in.

    Thank you Carol and Eddie, for newcomers here, his one was first spotted by C&E soon after the Romans left and we've been enjoying it ever since. Well apart from one year when it was so cold we had to break the ice on the Dee to empty our cassettes and do our washing.

    Congratulations, spooky two of my babies were born on April 10th. Eldest daughter was not too happy with a baby brother for her sixth birthday, she wanted a trampoline!

    An excellent start. Chester is great, ancient city with walls, ghosts, Roman remains and boat trips all within easy walking distance. We've bought some amazing new meat experiences there, like ostrich. Unfortunately I've forgotten the others so we'll by guessing again.

    Cheeses, loads of cheeses.
