    Morning all,

    Has anyone been to Larling Beer festival, Norwich? I have had a look online and can take the MH, just interested to see if anyone has been to the festival and if there are many electric hook up spots?
    Hope to go this summer and quaff a beverage or three. May well see a fellow member there?

    Happy Monday all,

    Kind regards,
    Ryan

    Dates? Link?
    Might be helpful... save everyone from googling, especially if the dates are otherwise occupied.

    The Fun Whisky meet was held at that pub, I think it was 2017, I can't recall seeing any hook-ups, though there could have been some on the opposite side to where I pitched, but the field opposite the pub was OK for motorhomes and there was a small toilet block in the field, which would of course be very busy if there were tent campers for the beer festival. Access was easy too.

    I notice that in the terms and conditions in the posted link it says:

    "It is not permitted to bring your own alcohol or glassware to this event. To ensure the safety of all customers the pub car parks will be attended by security and visitors may be subject to a car search."

    If taking the motorhome to such an event, that would indicate that one would need to remove all glasses, bottles of wine etc before they would let you in. That seems a bit draconian. It would be impossible for someone who was visiting as part of a MH tour and it would also prevent someone walking down to the distillery and making a purchase in the shop.

    I would have to pick apart their statement... they can search cars, not MH hehehe :) no, I wouldn't be pedantic about it, however, I utterly agree it would be a difficult thing to man.
    Furthermore, I would think this is standard formatting for them- in the sense of safety. Would probably bring the 'staying in the van while intoxicated argument (with possession of keys' ) about again. I think I will give them a ring....double check the set up and scenario.

    The beer festivals normally have a glass you purchase with tokens- so hoping for a little souvenir. :):) or it will be confiscated upon my departure.
