Five reasons to visit the UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show

The UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show takes place on September 2 and 3, 2017 and brings together traders, daytime activities and evening entertainment for campers into one jam-packed weekend of fun at the Newark Showground.

The trade show opens on Saturday at 9.30am until 5pm and Sunday from 9.30am until 4pm. Day tickets for the show cost £5 in advance or £7 on the gate and under-14s go FREE.

Alternatively you can camp for the weekend and prices for camping cost £45 in advance or £55 on the gate. Here are five reasons why this year’s show is not to be missed!

1: Evening entertainment and three nights’ camping for just £45

Campers can arrive on the Friday morning (September 1) and stay until Monday (September 4) – there will also be superb entertainment on the Friday and Saturday for you to enjoy!

On the Friday, party band Sweet Sensation will be taking to the stage fronted by the highly gifted and charismatic frontman, Al Dwyer, who can hold any audience on command and will defy anyone to sit still with his infectious enthusiasm and stunning vocal ability.

Sweet Sensation will be followed by Kennedy Katlin as Dolly Parton. Kennedy has been performing for more than a decade now and if you want to sing along to all your favourite Dolly hits and enjoy an authentic night with the Queen of Country music, then this is where you need to be!

Sistacated, a 70s Motown and soul band, will be performing a number of hits from the giants of Motown on the Saturday. They will be followed by Abba Forever, who have been called ‘The next best to the original Abba’ by many and are a must-see for any Abba fans.

There will also be comedy from award-winning Chris Britten and Luke Graves, who was voted the Comedian of the Year at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

2: Look inside, browse and compare

The UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show is the perfect opportunity to get up close to the latest caravan and motorhome layouts, interiors, accessories and equipment available on the market.

There will be loads of exhibitors offering something to fulfill everyone’s needs, including major dealers such as: Camper UK, Eurocruiser, Go Pod Caravans, Imperial Car Centre, Motor Plus Derby and Oakwell Motorhome.


3: Excursions into historic Lincoln and Newark

During the course of the weekend there will be two opportunities for campers to head out and see the local area. On the Friday there will be coach trips into the heart of historic Lincoln, where you will get the chance to visit the famous Steep Hill, castle and cathedral or visit the array of restaurants and bars around the Bailgate area.

Coaches cost £5 return and will depart from Newark at noon and 2pm and will leave Lincoln to return to Newark at 4pm and 6pm.

On the Sunday there will be excursions into Newark itself, which is home to Newark Castle and offers a variety of things to do such as boat trips or the Newark Air Museum.

4: Great deals on accessories and consumables

Choosing the right accessories for your holiday is just as important as choosing the holiday itself!

The UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show is the perfect place to grab a bargain on last season’s accessories, including awnings, bike racks and barbecues. Here you will benefit from offers that you just won’t find anywhere else!

5: Plan your next family outdoor adventure

A recent study found that nearly 90% of parents would prefer their children to spend more time outdoors. With all the motorhomes, caravans and must-have accessories on display, the UK Autumn Motorhome & Caravan Show is the perfect place to start planning your outdoor adventure with the family!
