    We are just going on the Friday as live close by. Great day out been a few times. I prefer the revival meeting as everyone dresses up in the 40s and 60s gear. But even so they are both good.

    Thanks for your replies, a few more questions.
    What are the 'must see' things? can you take your own beer into the festival? is there any live music?

    Never camped there, and it is on my bucket list. Been to the FOS a few time though, must see things have to be waiting for one of the supercars hitting the flint wall (at least one will). The celebrity drivers will be wandering around, we met sir sterling moss one year, and Jackie Stewart. There is so much to see, and all so casual, I liked the concours cars, but my wife thought that was boring!

    a good friend of mine used to transport cars to the FOS amongst other places around the world. sadly he died there a few years ago so it has a sad connection for me

    Been to FoS five years on the trot and it is fantastic if you're into cars and motorsport. Must see things? EVERYTHING! Must do thing? Champagne on the lawn on Sunday afternoon! Enjoy it.
