    We have been the last 2 years. Only went last year as we managed the get 2 free tickets. Compared to the Newark and Peterborough shows it quite small and not a lot of trade stands. Ok if you are viewing or looking to change your motorhome as there a few local dealer trade stands. We are stopping on the adjacent showground campsite and will decide on the day whether to go to the show.

    Might just do that, might even go to the show if we do.
    I like Shaws as there are LOADS of take aways around it, and bus stop near as damm it outside

    If anyone was thinking of going, you can get a discount on entry here. Two for a tenner instead of £14.

    Been there setting up today, the old building 1 has been demolished and is being rebuilt. The old hall 2 is still there and at the back of the site there is a large hall where most the accessories and some of the smaller campervans are situated.
    It looks better set out than last year with all the smaller traders inside.

    Hope to see lots of Funsters there over the weekend.

    I enjoyed it yesterday but it was damned cold looking around the vans outside, bought a sim card from Addie of motorhomewifi but nothing else.
    Definitely did NOT buy a small curd tart for £3 (n)

    Tried to buy two coffees but was totally ignored by four staff members, they saw me, but carried on chatting so gave up.
    Only thing bought, I thought is was a bit of a let down really.
    Glad I didn't buy the tickets.

    I had a similar issue at the food van but persevered as I was starving.
