    First of all I love Stratford upon Avon.

    Probably the best show there is in all the calender and Nikki and I haven't missed one in what? 10 years?

    We love the fact that it's on for the week and previously when it fell in Whit week it was great to take the kids away for the whole week.
    However, now for this trip it's the Friday & Saturday night for us and it comes out at a whopping £24 per night.

    so Up the workers and Up the ones with kids, it's a rip off,

    come the camper revolution and my promotion to the head of the Motorhome fraternity and it's the retired that will be footing the bill for us workers.

    rant ends

    And I was moaning that it's gone up from £54 a week to £76.50..

    I remember when it fitted in with the school holidays, our grandkids had a great weeks holiday and met many new people that were camped around us..

    Up the revolution... and glad i'm retired....

    Lucky you :)
    I left school to be told I will have to do 49 years. Bloody liars :mad: it's now 51 at least.
    Should have took a local authority job if I'd have known about final salary pensions but he ho too late now

    I feel for you workers but as we're allergic to 99.9% of all children am quite glad it's not in the holidays ;)

    Of course being unemployed (albeit by choice) the rise in price was a bit of a shock to us too :D

    Not lucky i.m.o. . . I simply planned to retire @ 55 when I was 18 & never had L.A. employment, but did invest in my future with pensions :)

    It's the same everywhere Paul.. . attractions, museums, shows, we get shafted.. they see us a cash cows..

    I have given up .. lots of places we used to visit have now hiked the prices to the point it's daylight robbery..

    Only last week, Chaz was at the Suffolk Show with the Army Cadets .. they help out with marshalling etc.. so they do this for three nights and two days.. FREE .. gratis.. at the end of the show they are given a show rosette .. wow.. ..

    we were going to visit then checked the price.. almost £50 for a day pass + parking fee .. to visit a farmer showing off his prize bullocks, toffs show jumping.. with traders ripping us off .. :rolleyes:

    no way .. stick the shows and attractions where the sun don't shine.. plenty of free natural attractions.. well, at the moment.. beaches and hills will soon be taxed and charged to use .. :mad:

    Think about us singles/solos. We have to pay the same amount but can't split the cost between multiple people :p
