So read on and learn more my lovely travellers!
get back to nature
This is a brand new attraction for 2016, over the weekend there will be talks from many experts about the great British wildlife. Experts including TV presenter and Marine Adventurer (how do you get that job title?!) Monty Hall, who had travelled the globe four times, presented shows for BBC, Channel 5, Discovery, Nat Geo and the History Channel (literally all my favourite channels…) He will be talking about how to explore the beautiful British countryside and the marine wildlife that is available to us. Katy Hill will also be talking here, the Blue Peter and Tomorrows World presenter will be discussing her latest adventure Glamping (remember Katy Hill from when you were a kid?) This stand will be high lighting the best places for bird watching, cycling routes and walking trails! The Forest Rangers will be on hand to uncover the majestic woodland we have, keeping the kids busy while discovering animals, birds and bugs! Enjoy the falconry experience too, and learn all about the Duke of Edinburgh Award. For everything nature, this is the place to go!
the food and travel stage
We all know I love food, so this was always going to be on here wasn’t it? No food, no Sarah – that’s my rule! Anyway, this stand will showcase mouth watering meals that can be cooked in a caravan and camp side (if you like sleeping on the ground in a tent, I do prefer a bed, but each to their own!). From homemade pitta breads to tasty paella, all sorts of food will be on offer here. Expert cook Andrew Dickens can not only cook, he has acted in Emmerdale and Hollyoaks (among other things), as well as presenting shows for BBC, and he will be cooking up a storm while telling us all about his 1000 mile trip around the UK. TV presenter and New York Bestselling Author Simon Reeve will be talking about travelling and food too (obviously), he will be telling us all about his latest escapades. Marine Adventurer Monty Hall (I just like saying that…) will also be dropping in to show us how to make some delicious Saltfish Cakes! Loads of tasters and recipes on offer at this attraction!
This is the place where all the stuff you didn’t know you needed will be! The leading retailers all exhibit at the Caravan and Motorhome Show, it is a place where you can go and stock up on all the essentials for the new season ahead. There is a massive range to wander around and look at, from bike racks and barbecues to sat navs, outdoor furniture and house hold must-haves (you know you need that bright green kettle, it will just go with the kitchen!) You will find things you didn’t even know you needed – its like being inside a JML show! There will be show only offers and discounts at the store, so have your purse ready for these bargains you won’t find on the high street!
