Camping

Posted by on Feb 10, 2014

Weekend camping at the UK Motorhome & Caravan Shows from just £45, including exclusive evening entertainment…   Camping hints and tips | Before the weekend Book your tickets in advance – Confirm your plans early and save on the gate prices, camping can be booked for each show online, or by calling 01507 529529. Stock up – We have an on-site shop at each of our three events for supplies and essentials, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to take a trip to the supermarket and get a few items in. Don’t forget to get some cash for the bar, too! Check your vehicle – You don’t want to get on the road and find you have a problem now do you? Give your vehicle the once over and make all the usual checks before setting off. If you’re towing, then make sure your hitch is secure. Plan your route – Both Newark and Kent Showgrounds are easy enough to find, but it always helps to have your route in your mind. Under each event section we’ve provided directions to the respective venues, but it might also be worth bringing along your Sat Nav, and be sure to check the traffic and weather reports. Don’t forget the essentials – Medication, toiletries, toothbrushes… make yourself a list of any particular personal items you might need for the weekend and then check it all off as you pack it. Get packed – You don’t want to be messing around with this when you could be on the road. Get everything you need together and ready to go so you can make the most of the busy show weekend!   Camping hints and tips | When you arrive Getting to the venue – Once close to either showground you will see yellow ‘Campers’ Entrance’ signs… so follow them. If you’ve already received your camping pack then make sure you are wearing your wristband (and keep them on for the whole weekend) or pick up your pack from the gate. Event staff will then escort you to your camping pitch or club area. Pitch up – Take your time and get everything in place for the weekend. Pick out a landmark or identifiable feature so you don’t forget where you are… the bar will be open for evening entertainment, so this happens more often than you’d think! Explore the site – Find the nearest facilities, familiarise...
