    We'll be there! We're taking extra woolies and hot water bottles, as it looks like it might be a touch on the chilly side!

    Hi, never been to any of the appletree exhibition shows, so I would not know what they were like. :BigGrin: So you will have to fill us in, on what you think :Smile: and looking at the cost they seem more expensive than the others we go to. :Doh:

    Imagine say 50 funsters in all size vehicles and our party tents, :Wink: would you think we would enjoy it. :Rofl1: Given the location I don't know that its ideal for that many, but then we live a long way from anywhere.:Wink::Laughing:

    It says free entertainment but not what sort, or who. :Eek!:

    But I would like to see what you think. :thumb: Bob.

    We went to the Appletree show at Exeter, which was freezing, but I thought it was pretty good. We go as traders, but normally go to the evening entertainment if there is any (there wasn't at Exeter).

    I've heard (but not officially) that the entertainment at Romsey will be bingo, a band and a comedian.

    This show is the only one in the South though, so maybe worth a trip for those who don't want to schlepp north of London or do battle with the M25?

    It's also in the grounds of Broadlands House, so should be a nice venue.

    Steve :Smile:

    Jane loves a game of bingo, she can do at least 3 cards. :Eek!: And I'm not joking. :Laughing:

    But always Interested in something different, but it has to worth the distance travelled. :Smile: If its just a few dealers and very little else, we would not bother, we have lots of shows anyway, and some are better than others. I know if we can get enough funsters anywhere we have a great time, but being a more expensive show, it has to be worth it, or we just as well be in a field somewhere for a lot less money. :Wink: Bob.

    Oh, just remembered we've got three pairs of complimentary tickets to the show! :Doh:

    Happy to send them out first class tomorrow to the senders of the first three PMs received :BigGrin:

    It's not clear on the tickets whether they cover camping over the weekend - sorry!
