We are so excited…
Not only to finally do something social since we were locked down over a year ago, but Penelope should be ready (hopefully)! So we’ve booked our spot and are really looking forward to the Adventure Overland Show in June.
Taking place on the 5th & 6th June 2021, The Adventure Overland Show features mainly 4WD vehicles and will take place at Stratford Racecourse, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.
However, given the crossover between the two types of vehicle (2WD & 4WD), the Adventure Overland Show and International Campervan Show have been blended into one giant event!
All types and model of van will be there from Land Rovers through to ex-military M.A.N. 8×8 trucks and of course DAF trucks like our old girl – plus so many more – all are welcome!
‘Bringing together those of us who love exploring the great outdoors, the joint event includes two full days of free-to-attend seminars (presented by both professional and amateur speakers), spanning a host of subjects covering 4x4s, 2WD campervans, adventure bikes and expedition trucks, traders galore including campervan and truck conversion specialists, clubs & their fire-pits, “Bushcraft For Kids”, incredible display vehicles, the “Travel Author’s Zone” complete with book signings, the “Adventure Bike Zone” and various interactive workshops … basically it’s the biggest and best event of its type in the land!‘ – http://www.adventure-overland-show.com

Standard adult admission in 2019 (before the pandemic) was £15 per day (Saturday or Sunday), children under 16 years free. This admission charge has now been reduced … yes reduced … as we’ve introduced a ‘Family Fun Day’ on Sunday 6th June 2021.
Prices are now:-
Saturday 5th June 2021 ~ £15 per adult (children under 16 years free)
Sunday 6th June 2021 ~ £10 per adult (children under 16 years free)
Due to government restrictions on numbers attending, camping/admission tickets must be purchased online in advance via https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/adventureoverlandshow and when they’re gone … they’re truly gone!

If you can’t make it in June, the ‘Late Summer’ edition 18-19 September 2021 should be great fun too – we’re not sure we will be there yet but a lot of our friends will with their awesome trucks, vans and campers.
Will we see you there?
