A swinging 60s Weekender for our Spring show

IT was the decade that gave us some of the greatest music and musicians to ever grace the charts, and at the upcoming UK Spring Motorhome & Caravan Show two nights of evening entertainment will celebrate the sensational 1960s. Hundreds of campers at the Newark Showground event will be treated to a jam-packed line-up of star performers, culminating on Saturday night with the Paul Da Vinci’s 60s/70s Explosion – an incredible all-round act featuring major hits from Motown, swing, rock and pop. Paul – who was actually the original voice on The Rubettes’ worldwide number one hit Sugar Baby Love – will follow The New Honeycombs as they take visitors on a trip down memory lane with hits both from the original group and many more 60s classics. The opening night is just as star-studded, beginning with Baby Love – a show dedicated to Tamla Motown and featuring songs made famous by the likes of The Supremes, The Four Tops and Martha & The Vandellas – followed by The Ragdolls, Europe’s number one tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Both evenings also feature side-splitting comedy from Midlands Entertainer of the Year Zak Stevens on Friday, and the eccentric Arnold Gutbucket on Saturday. The main trade show runs on Saturday and Sunday, March 18-19, with visitors coming in their droves to browse the bargains on offer from hundreds of stands and stalls including dealers of motorhomes, caravans and camper vans. New for 2017, campers can arrive on-site from Thursday, March 16, and stay through until the Monday morning – that’s four nights for as little as £45. Along with the 60s Weekender evening entertainment, there are new added extras such as a hog roast on Thursday night and a quiz on Sunday. During Friday daytime a special coach trip into the heart of historic Lincoln will be running for just £5 per person and, during the weekend show, campers can enjoy all the same benefits as day visitors plus exclusive cash-prize bingo and dance classes.

Summer fun with The Real Thing

Seventies British soul sensations The Real Thing – famed for their international mega-hit You To Me Are Everything – have been confirmed as the headline act for our Summer Party weekender at Kent Event Centre. As the final act of three exciting nights of evening entertainment at the now three-day UK Summer Motorhome & Caravan Show, the group will take to the stage to take our visitors on a trip down memory lane with live performances of their extensive back catalogue which includes their biggest song, plus the likes of Can’t Get By Without You, You’ll Never Know What You’re Missing and Whenever You Want My Love. Campers can arrive at the show from Thursday, and on opening night will be treated to chart-toppers and classic hits from party band The Dynamics, before comedian Paul Eastwood takes centre stage on Friday. The Dynamics return on Saturday with a special 70s set in support of The Real Thing. It’s three superb nights you don’t want to miss! The extended trade show runs from Friday-Sunday, June 9-11, giving visitors an extra day to browse the bargains on offer from hundreds of stands and stalls including dealers of motorhomes, caravans and camper vans. There will be kids’ entertainment and live music in the daytimes, as well as camper-exclusive activities – cash-prize bingo and a new and improved coach service running throughout the weekend to nearby Rochester. With campers able to stay through until Monday morning, pitches cost as little as £45 for four nights when you book before Sunday, June 4.
