    OK not a meet in the normal sense, just and good weekend. We did this a couple of years ago before the campsite was finished, even for an evening it was spectacular, with a bit of booze it will be awesome.

    Capesthorne Hall, near Macclesfield.

    Aug 16th Fireworks competition.
    http://www.fireworkchampions.co.uk/

    You can book it all by phoning Capesthorne on 01625 861221.

    I have just paid £80 for two nights camping (15th + 16th ) and the fireworks for 2.

    If you fancy joining us get on the phone now while there are pitches.

    Sorry, out of my hands, I doubt they'll move it.

    What gives an extra boost to the fireworks is we sit on one side of the lake and the fireworks are on the other, so we get extra views.

    The campsite is new, so I expect good facilities.

    What ? Are you one of these freeloaders ?

    It's £15 per person for the fireworks - you don't have to camp.

    It's £25 per night for a new campsite in a stately home. CC at Chatsworth, same time ( but full ) if £28 per night and you have to be members.

    Not for me, it would cost hundreds to do those from here.

    So we have a cunning plan.

    You go to Plymouth.

    We'll got to Capesthorne. Where I will be 100 yards from the action so can easily carry the table chairs, smoked salmon and bubbly. How far will you be ?

    I've been to several of the 'Fireworks Proms', including at Capesthorne, and I will say that they are a fantastic night. :thumb:
    Even if we let the side down with our plastic cooler box and lashings of beer, whilst the Hilldweller's next to us had taffeta ballgowns and a butler..!! :Eeek: :Rofl1: Not able to get to this one, but enjoy. :Wink:

    A yacht is but a floating caravan. However they don't seem to have such good corner steadies as caravans, bad design really .....

    For £80 I would want to sleep in the master bedroom of the stately home AND have brekky served to me in bed by a scantily clad French serving wench.

    I won't lower my quality of life for to watch a few noisy fireworks.
