    Hi there, we are newly subscribed members and are considering going to Stratford Show this weekend. Can anyone tell us what facilities we will find on site and whether we can pay to camp Friday and Saturday on arrival - or do we have to phone to pre-book? Thanks, Jeanette & Roy, any info gratefully received...

    Hi Jeanette and welcome,

    facilities are a little basic i'm afraid..

    tiolets, some with wash facilities...but mostly portaloo's

    no hookup (except limited disabled)

    water will be from a bowser (tank) unless you fill on arrival at one of the very few taps available.

    i dont think there are any cash machines so take cash as well as cards for purchases.

    there will be 'free' and 'paid for' entertainment on friday and saturday night


    the plus side is the funsters are there en-mass :thumb: so you wont need entertainment....we make our own :Eeek:

    head for the weekend camping gate, pay on the gate and ask to be directed to the motorhome fun area. (loads of room evidently)
    might as well be with the gang than stuck in general camping.
    dont be backward in coming forward.....you'll be made very welcome by all.

    Hi Jeanette32,

    Welcome to Fun.

    There's not a lot to add to the informative posts above, except that our weather just now is excellent, and the 2 x Fun social marquees are up. WiFi is possible (but not guaranteed) and phone signals are good. Stratford town centre is only a few minutes away by bike (using the short Sustrans Cycle Route 5), but obviously longer by Shank's Pony. :Wink:

    Even if you don't have a Fun plaque for your windscreen, (just yet :Wink:), just mention when you pay, that you are with Motorhome Fun, and the organiser's marshals will guide you to our camping area.

    We look forward to meeting you.

    Safe journey,

    Jock & Rita.

    As others have said..Don't be shy get in there and introduce yourselves to The Funsters..We did this at the Newark show..although we don't currently have a van and we live in Tenerife we were back in the UK when the show was on and we went and introduced ourselves to some of the Funsters who were there..Peter H...Laneside...Diablo...and the Boss Jim..To name but a few...and in spite of not having a van we were made most cordially welcome..My partner Dawn still raves about Peters Welsh cakes..and his cuppa's it was very much appreciated as it was a tad chilly that day in Newark
    Get in there and see them you'll love it as we did..It actually made us sort of ask why we sold the van when there were so many good people there to have "The Craic" with!!

    Thank you guys for making us feel so welcome. We have toyed with the idea of blasting off down to the coast tomorrow morning as the weather is so good, but with such a warm welcome awaiting us we may just come to Stratford after all :BigGrin:

    Hello all,
    As of 5pm this evening the field was half full, i believe with the few late arrivals tomorrow there should be plenty of room for the unplanned visits!!!!

    The guys on the gate are a very nice bunch that will try and accomadate best they can.

    Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
    Sorry we can't be there for the weekend but prior plans take priority.
    For those staying on until monday, may see you some time then.
    To the others we will not se, have a fine journey home and see you again soon.

    Regards,

    Cheyne and Lynne
