Festival yes,rally no:( @Wombles posted this the other day.

  1. Despite months of trying to get a reply from the Sunshine & Mello festival organisers (as they are on track to sell out for both festivals this time) they don't need us for numbers this year so we won't have a Fun & RVOC meet at either of these in 2018 :( We had some fantastic feedback from last years Sunshine Meet both from members & from the organisers & we were promised a lot for this year but sadly the organisers have changed their plans.
    We are still trying to get them to honour their promise (we have this in writing) of family tickets for both Mello & Sunshine which were for a fundraising auction for RVOC member Cassie to help fund her pioneering treatment in Russia for MS.
    For anyone who is considering going to Sunshine suggest buying your tickets soon as the price goes up after midnight on 31st January.
    We aren't giving up on the idea of festivals & events combined with motorhoming & are pleased that Lymington Seafood Festival & Stratford River Festival Rallies have had such a good response & are going ahead :hi5: We have been in contact with quite a few major festivals & may be volunteering as Stewards at some this year so will try to convince them that they should encourage more motorhomers!

@Wombles will be past soon as I think we're still awaiting the organisers to get back to them but we arranged with them last year but AFAIK, I think it's individual bookings and looks to me, £85.00 + £10.00 if going on Thursday (each).

I can only find one price of £85.00 plus £10.00 extra for Thursday. Is there a link for the site. I'm happy to book tonight/tomorrow

Hi everyone - we did manage to organise a meet there last year https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/sunshine-festival-2017-upton-24-28-august-meet.144891/ with members booking price at just £64 per ticket with Thursday arrival & our own area but sadly this year they don't need our numbers as on track to sell out for Sunshine & their other festival Mello. Understand that many will now have the festival bug & still want to go but as mentioned above the price is currently £85 (Thursday arrival £95) each & according to their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/thesunshinefestival/ is due to go up to £95 after midnight tomorrow.

We've booked. Arriving Thursday. Even a booking fee this time but still an excellent time to be had

Thanks Ex, looking to see how many Ermms I can get to see actual numbers. I missed out last year, having bought a ticket, due to my youngest sons illness at the time. I need to make my decision tomorrow, so just trying to get a feel for numbers.

Well I do know at least another couple are going because we booked at the same time.
There isn't a dedicated place for Funsters this year like last year, just quiet or general camping

I'm pretty sure that @Wombles will formulate a list of who's attending but that might be a bit presumptuous of me
