First of all a big 'thank you' to those that supported the festival in 2013. We have since the 2013 festival handed out a total of over £30,000 in donations to various local and national charities and local projects.

2014 sees the 20th Anniversary of the Shackerstone Family Festival. Not bad for three groups of volunteers to have achieved since we gave ourselves three years to have some fun and raise some cash for local projects. How its blossomed.

No Red Arrows this year. they are in Northern Ireland and Switzerland (long way to go with a caravan) but the entertainment booked offers a great weekend for all those involved. Evening entertainment on two nights for those staying with us.

Discounted prices are offered to UKCampsite members and hopefully the form will soon be attached to this thread.

Geoff (of 'Geoff and Pauline' - in charge of caravans and camping fame) has informed me there are a number of UKCampsite members now booked in for the festival. Please make sure you use the form showing the UKCampsite name on the form and price discount for members so that the members can be allocated in the same space.
Ta muchly.

The final day for the current discounted price to UKCampsite members is the 22nd August.
Although there will still be a discounted price after this date all camping prices increase on the 23rd as the closer we get to the event the removal of the early bird discount subsides.
Think that makes some sense.
Thanks for looking.

If in doubt ring Geoff & Pauline, 0116 2911268 (evenings only or leave message on ansaphone) or 07887 812106

It will be our 1st time here , so if it is as good as Elveston, we are on to a winner. We hope to meet some more of you , so pop in for a chat and a cuppa.
We will have our "Kent ( Invicta horse ), and Help for heroes" flags up ( weather permitting).

That's great Steve and Christine....we look forward to your arrival.

The last I herd from Geoff and Pauline, our caravan and camping boffins on caravan numbers was that the figure is approaching 200 with the number from UKCampsite well into double figures

The counting down of days is almost now just counting hours before the start of our twentieth family festival.

Theboss....
Thank you very much for your help ..
it will save us from stocking up before we leave, getting caught up in a long traffic jam, then eating my way through our supplies..
