Hello fine people of the group.
I have glad tidings for an event in 2017. Have you heard of the very fine Gloucester Vintage and Country Extravaganza held near Cirencester? No? Wow! You must have done something really bad to be locked up that long! It is a vast 3 day show taking in Classic, Vintage and Veteran cars, Steam Traction Engines and stationary engines, working steam saw mills, classic motorbikes, commercials, busses, military vehicles, tractors, industrial trucks ….basically, if it’s old, oily and got wheels it’s here. There is also lots and lots for the family including a vintage fair ground, Animal shows, craft fairs, traders, remote control model aircraft and tank displays, licensed bars, food outlets and lots, lots more.
In short, it is heaven on earth people. Check out the clicky linky thing below: www.glosvintageextravaganza.co.uk
And the glad tidings? I would very much like to book a group pitch and I need your help to fill it. If you sign up to be on the group stand at this wonders of the world event, it is all FREE! YES! FREE! Even FREE on site camping with the luxury of toilets AND showers!!
However, it depends on you. I need a definite commitment of who wants to attend. I need a core of about 10 vehicles whose owners are prepared to attend at least 2 of the days but preferably all 3 in order to receive priority in which groups/clubs get a pitch. However, there is room for up to 30 cars on the application form. You can attend only one day if you wish, but the show is so big that it is very hard work to get round it all in just a day. So go on, you know you want to join in the camping and stay at least 2 days. (There are also plenty of B&B’s in the area) I even promise to bring a boot full of my “award winning” lemon drizzle cake.
This glorious event is being held on Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August 2017.
If you don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime (ok, year) opportunity, please PM me with the make, model and registration of the car you will bring, along with which days you would like to attend and whether you want a camping pitch. Oh, a driver and passenger get in for free with every registered car and dogs are welcomed.
Your car will have to be in display position before 10 AM and will not be allowed to leave until 5PM. From visiting in previous years, it would appear that this rule is strictly enforced.
Did I mention there will be licensed bars and cake?
