Had hoped to get to the show but, due to family illness, couldn't get there. As I have never been, anyone go and, if so, is it worth the trip?

Yes, IMHO it is. This year was our first at the event and we thought it was very good value, lots of stalls although apparently there weren't as many as last year, very good entertainment on the Saturday (we didn't get to the Friday night shows), good carvery lunch available at the function suite. Very well organised, plenty of water points spread round the show-ground, mains electrics for the disabled pitches, plenty of places to get rid of your rubbish and a lot of staff cleaning the toilets regularly and picking up litter round the grounds. All in all very good value for the weekend. We had travelled from the north of Scotland to go with friends - it was their first outing in their caravan since the husband had a severed stoke last year and they managed really well - in my limited experience the place seemed very wheelchair friendly with plenty of space to get round the different stalls and halls.

The piece de resistance was being presented with a bunch of daffodils along with our information pack as we arrive at the showground on the Friday.

We called in on Sunday there were a few dealers with new caravans, only had our since January so we were not too interested in looking at them. Loads and loads of Campervans few 5th wheel set ups and a few accessory stalls selling the usual stuff. We came away with an extending (3 meters and a very soft ) brush to connect to the garden hose for the roof of the van for £15 which we thought wasn't too bad. Weather was reasonable Sunday hence our trip Saturday was a bit rough and it can blow right accross the showground s. o we picked the best day

My OH worked at the showground for 18 yrs and this comment has been made to the management on numerous occasions after various events. It's ok if it's nice there is lots of grass to sit down on but how often do we get good dry weather for any lenght of time ? :(
