Hi Graham, the Motor Caravanners Club hold a rally at the Bristol Baloon Fiesta every year. You will have to be a member of the MCC to attend, the rally is organised by their Avon Group and is situated right outside the entrance to the park where the event is held. I believe that the C&CC also hold a rally nearby.

Hi Graham
we have been there before and used the MCC rally field.
The CCC or the CC do have a rally there. I think the caravan club use a school a little further away. The CCC one might have been the next field along from the MCC.
Its worth being close as the early morning one comes right over your heads, and there is a picture of me watching it from my bed, lol.
Have fun
Pat

Was hoping to find something a bit nearer but thanks for the information .

Hi Graham,

It's as Brisey and Pat4Neil have posted. The MCC are in the field to the left of the pub, and the C&CC are in a field to the right of the pub, but further along the same road, (within walking distance). The CC are in the school grounds at the bottom of the hill, near the roundabout, and the Park & Ride is on the right, again, at the bottom of the hill near the roundabout.

When the weather is fine, it's a smashing location and event.

Have a good time.

Cheers,

Jock & Rita.
