WHO WANTS TO JOIN IN THE FUN AT THE UK MOTORHOME & CARAVAN SPRING FAIR?

Following the massive success of this new event in 2007, ‘The UK Motorhome & Caravan Spring Fair’ returns to Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th March 2008.

The organisers are pleased to announce the expansion of the show both indoors and outdoors, plus the addition of daytime arena entertainment.

Weekend visitors will once again be treated to 2 nights of top-class cabaret including award-winning magic, music and comedy, plus even a real-life TV Game Show Night!

The 1,000 capacity pavilion will be transformed into a TV studio with a camera crew and giant screens for a full stage production of household favourites such as ‘Play Your Cards Right’, ‘Catchphrase’ and ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’, presented by a professional host. Top prizes will be up for grabs during this night of humour and audience participation.

Other acts appearing to entertain weekend campers include vocalist & magician ‘Vizage’, singing sensations ‘Venus’ and top comedy show band ‘Jokerz Wild’.

The show is an ideal opportunity to prepare for the 2008 season, with trade stands featuring the latest models from many major brands, plus all manner of spares and accessories for motorhomes and caravans.

Weekend camping is available on-site at just £35 per pitch, including free evening entertainment on Friday and Saturday night, free show guides, a courtesy shuttle bus to historic Newark, plus discounted admission to Newark Air Museum. To book weekend camping, call 01775 723723 or download a booking form at www.ukspringfair.co.uk

Day Tickets are priced at £6 for adults and £3 for children (5-15 years) or discounted by booking online or by calling the 24 hour hotline on 0870 1631786 (deadline 10th March).

Hope to see you all there :Smile:

We attended this show last year, it was its first outing, and we thought it was great. Lots of people from elsewhere moaned and groaned (as usual :roflmto:) but we will definately be returning for its second outing.
Thanks for letting us know about it, and I just want to enquire whether we need any special arrangements to organise ourselves as a group, all camping together, and if there is to be any form of discount offered to us please? Does your organisation hold the relevant permits (Defra cert, public liability etc) or, as a club, do we need to provide our own?
Looking forward to your reply and to attending again.....

I have already been in contact with Gina, you will notice that they have some advertising on the right:Smile: They are placing a banner add on their website for us, and we have struck a good deal for some trade space to advertise Motorhome Fun. I haven't worked out the details yet but I have been looking for a venue for my 50th Birthday Bash and this may well be it!!

Gina has said she will be able to get at least £5 off the full weekend entertainment and camping costs. I have to check on a few things yet but I am pretty sure this is going to happen so grab your diary and write this in it for Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th March 2008

Just wanted to let you know that Newark Showground hold their own certificates which we are covered by and also, as event organisers we old our own insurances for the whole event, so it's all covered.

Please don't hesitate to ask any further questions and we look forward to seeing you return to the event in 2008.

Gina

Can we not get in the show ground on Friday anyone know?


Hi Tony,

Great to hear you're coming along to the show.

Yes, you can arrive anytime from 9am on the Friday and stay until Monday morning if you wish.

The actual show starts on the Saturday but there will be a few trade stands and catering open on the Friday plus the night time entertaiment.

Regards,
Gina

Hi Jim

Could you please add our names to calendar - I booked with Gina G this morning.
£30 now and an additonal £5 if we don't get ten bookings from Fun.
Electric hookup is a whopping £15 so we are passing on the hook up option - but Gina G explained this is the charge the electrical contractors have decided to offer.

As Keith said earlier, we went to this show last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was not as large as the Peterborough Show which disappointed some, but there was an excellent mix of stalls - At £30 for the weekend I think it is great value.

Hope to see you there!!::bigsmile:

I think there will be more than ten of us Geo, so go and book at £30. In the unlikely event that less than ten book, then MH Fun will I am sure be in a position to pay the addition fiver per member. Should be a good party, Gina has said we can have our own plot so I am looking forward to us all parking around our new party tent. :beer:+ :wine: = :man_in_love:

Hi John or Peter
Y It appears you book direct telling them your with MHFun and they knock a fiver off if less than ten book Gina will come looking for the other fiver, a bit hit and miss me thinks
Gina should come right out and say that were getting a fiver off and be done with it, it looks more professional than a guessing game I suspect the others clubs have got a discounted scheme in place, there's bound to be about 20+ of us but every ones hanging back waiting to see if we make ten or not
Jim's even promised to pay the fiver if we don't make ten vans and he wouldn't do that without some insight and logarithmic calculations:RollEyes:

Newark Show 2

There is some speculation as to whether we are getting a £5 discount or not.
The discount is available if we get 10 vans or more

who's going

My best guess is 28 vans

whats yours guess
