Was wondering if anyone has gone to this show. We have not gone and have never been to this one. At the last Malvern Western show it rained for half an hour as we were leaving and the roads were flooding. Looking at the weather this weekend it looks like continuous rain. With half the country locked town and a rising covid rate I presume that attendance will be poor.

I'm sure Wendo55 said she was at the show, the last time we went to the Caravan Show it rained
that much the Seaflo marque had water running straight through it. Also very muddy and you need
your wellies.
We stopped going when it was run by the 3 Counties management who seemed to like upsetting people
including the stallholders.

I'm here!šŸ˜€
It's just stopped raining for the first time since Friday morning. šŸ˜«
Attendance is good. Don't think covid has affected it.
Plenty of motorhomes and caravans here but everyone has had to stay inside them as the weather has been so awful so not much money has been spent.
Very small show but I knew that from the last time I came 4 years ago,(when it was warm and sunny). Some stalls are muddy today. Some packed up this morning.
Pitches are generally ok but the tractor is driving around and pulling the odd one off where they've unfortunately been parked in a dip then got stuck when trying to leave. On the whole most are managing on their own.

Sod's law, now people are leaving and it's coming to the end the sun is trying to show itself! šŸ™„
You made the right decision not to come this year but I wouldn't discount it outright. It's just unfortunate that the weather has spoilt it this time and after last week's gales and cold at Lincoln it's very disappointing.

Went briefly for the day - arrived at ten thirty -with friends who are looking to buy. Very small no of vans to view [but they loved an Adria and had not previously seen the model] not many people about in the inside showroom and even fewer outside .
Lots of people packing up even before lunch , very few exhibitors selling accessories ; but everyone very friendly . Roads on the way very wet some smaller ones had standing water . Really wintery sky; brightened up after we left [of course]

an interesting year for poor stallholders. At Lincoln the wind did its best to destroy the stalls, with some success. Monday, when it closed, the sun came out.
Malvern seems an echo of Lincoln but with Britain's worst rain selecting the area to do its worst and succeeding.
My heart goes out to stall holders, who have had a mostly terrible years trading.

Shows have been very difficult this year. We bought stock in for early shows and they were cancelled. e then had a couple of shows where covid and other things like weather effecting them. Plus extra expenses caused by covid like card payment fees as taking cash payments has also been killed off by the virus.

Who knows what will happen next, its quite unbelievable.
