2017 UK Spring Motorhome & Caravan Show
The UK Spring Motorhome & Caravan Show takes place on Saturday 18th March to Sunday 19th March 2017 at Newark Showground, Newark-On Trent, Nottinghamshire (Just off the A1). There will be hundreds of traders and dealers showcasing motorhomes, caravans and camper vans along with accessories and consumables. On both show days there are daytime activities including cash-prize bingo and dance lessons, then itís into the evenings for a superb line-up of sensational 60s musical entertainment.
The competition has closed and The UK Spring Motorhome & Caravan Show gets under way next week, so that means this weekend is your LAST CHANCE to buy your tickets in advance and make a saving against on-the-day prices.
A weekend camping package for two people is only £45 when bought in advance. That's a £10 saving against the gate price and allows entry into the main show for two people as well as a host of camping extras
We went to the show at Newark today and we're very very disappointed with the whole event. There was a real lack of caravans on show , plus I thought there would have been loads of parts stalls , but there was maybe one decent one .that's it.. We should have guessed something was wrong as the traffic going in flowed without any hold ups...
If we go again to another show it will be the Birmingham NEC....shame because this could be a good event on a good site..
We actually stayed for the weekend in our caravan and have to agree with Glenda J that there was very little to view and only one dealer with caravans. There were loads of motorhomes, though not as many as in previous years. Nowhere near as many trade stalls as previously and if I had paid the day rate (I believe this was £8 on the day - might be wrong!) I would have been asking for a refund!
However, the entertainment provided for campers on Friday and Saturday night was excellent, particularly the Friday night with Motown music and Frankie Valli tributes.
