    A contingent from Fun came to this last year and had great time - the weekend before the Malvern Show it ties in nicely to run from one to the other . The poster says it all - you can park up from Thursday to Monday and for £99 have full camping for 4 days and access to the show for the duration that also gives access to the entertainment which runs from 5pm to 11pm on Friday and 11am to 11 pm Saturday plus 11am to 11pm on Sunday - see separate post for the poster

    They have moved to a bigger venue then.
    We have been the last 2 years with our dancing friends, last year was nearly double the size of the year before.
    Don't think we can make it this year.

    First time I have posted a rally on this software - hopefully reads correctly now - I will keep posting new information as it comes up - this event has always been the jewel in the crown of rallies for RVOC members ( probably because we are all getting old :rofl:) but it never ceases to amaze me at the youngsters who so thoroughly enjoy this scene.:wink:

    What's your dance Landy?
    We are moving from jive to doing a lot more Lindy Hop and now learning BalBoa, don't seem to be able to grasp the shag.

    Hope your gout has cleared up for a while, friends I've seen with it, it's not pleasant.
    We couldn't dance a step until after we turned 60, now out 3-4 nights a week. Balboa lessons tomorrow Jive Aces swing/jive all dayer on Sat 1:00pm to 1:00am, great fun but will be knackered on Sunday.

    Fairly certain we won't make is this year, won't get back from Thailand, until late Wednesday evening of 5th will be too tired to spend all weekend dancing.

    Go on - you know you will enjoy it - the show will be 30% or more bigger than last year and more entertainment - just come and chill out - enjoy yourselves

    That's another thing putting us off it's getting too big, last year we didn't think it was as good as the previous year when it was a lot smaller. Will going to Twinwood brought the tickets at last years festival. Will there be any Funsters at Twinwood?

    Don't know about Twinwood - much of the problem with the last few years of Retro at White Waltham was the CAA who insisted on greater separation between live runways and the show. This actually condensed the show making it too tight and giving the impression of being to busy. Realistically the show outgrew White Waltham then. This year will allow them to spread a little making it more visitor friendly and allow things like more of the retro fun fair and a wall of death - should be more steam and more retro army stuff on show as well as lots more. Some good acts are coming to the 3 stages but until they have signed and sealed I am sworn to secrecy !!

    The festival is on the 7th/8th/9th August.
    You can park up from Thursday 6th and depart on Monday 10th and for £99 have full camping for 4 days and access to the show for the duration. That also gives access to the entertainment which runs from 5pm to 11pm on Friday and 11am to 11 pm Saturday plus 11am to 11pm on Sunday. Booking forms are available from Landy lover and must be returned to him, with payment, to obtain discounted tickets. I believe that the show organisers are charging £130 for the general public to attend with a motorhome and two persons.
    Funsters and RVOC members will be parked together, there is a strict NO GENERATORS policy, Electric hook ups are available at extra cost and must be booked and paid for in advance.
    Please send a P.M. to Landy lover if you require application forms.

    Hi Wino, the event is still on, you are not too late to book. Send a PM to Landy lover and he will e-mail application forms to you. See my previous post above.
    Look forward to meeting you at the festival,
    Brisey.
