In my opinion the Stone leisure shows are not as good as the Warners shows. In the past there has never been many accessory stalls but there are a reasonable amount of vans there, on the upside Stratford is nice to visit & apart from the bus to Stratford they used to have a free sightseeing bus trip around the area. There is a footpath along the river to Stratford just over a mile. The Stone leisure shows normally have a fireworks display on the Saturday night.
We were there last year & I thought that the firework display was too close to some of the vans, I got hit by the casing off a firework & I saw a few people brushing them off their vans. I remember talking to somebody with a stall there & he said the reason there weren't many small stall holders there was the high cost, it would be better to drop the fireworks & free buses etc. & reduce the cost for the small vendors to encourage more of them.
Won't be going this year as we are going to Lickhill Manor with [web:bbeeec8076]http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/rally/lickhill2005.asp[/web:bbeeec8076]
Stratford show is better than Driffield but not much, the area is loverly though, we live 8 miles form the show so we only go for the day which is just enough really to get round the show and have a meal in the van, wouldnt want to stay any longer unless you want to go round and about there.
The best Stone Leisure show at Shepton in September IMOP
Marys not letting you loose on you own is she lol
The rally at Lickey manor looks good we may pop along to that for a few days if the weather is ok on our way back from Brean.
Had a good time last year at Lickhill Manor, the rally field is next to the river which I think could present problems if there is a lot of rain. There is a nice walk along the river Severn to Stourport.
:lol: We will be going if all goes well - going up to Derbyshire to Regal to have our MH re-upholstered prior to the show but as we are self-emplyed, if any work comes in we may not make the show but certainly hoping to!!
Hymmi - how I agree with what you said about fireworks!! :roll: Ana xx
