THIS YEARS Theme


THE WILD WEST


 

THE History of The Feast of Lanterns.

This event, which started with the parent club way back in 1921, is based on Chinese tradition, where campers congregate at a selected site bringing hand-made lanterns to decorate their units with. This event is still immensely popular today, being the club’s largest annual event attended by hundreds of people.

Each year there is a different theme around which many people decorate their caravans, motorhomes and tents for the mutual enjoyment of everyone else. Every year this event never fails to amaze everyone at the enginuity of those creating the street scenes and individual displays.

Entertainment is laid on all weekend by both professional artists and also by club members. There is also a Trade area where you can get all your caravanning essentials and spares at bargain prices.

This is an event not to be missed !!

Whats Happening ?

The theme for our FOL is The Wild West,
which we are sure will give everyone the opportunity to
put on an excellent display on Saturday evening.

 

We have 3 nights of professional entertainment.  One night will be a Grease meets Dirty dancing night where dressing the part will be welcomed so get out your old rock and roll clothes and join in the fun.  Unfortunately the planned Youth Area has had to be cancelled due to lack of interest but there will be  some children’s activities over the weekend.  Extreme Catering will be attending and so will the Infinity bar and Affordable Caravan Servicing a mobile servicing/repair man. We are also hoping for some other trade to attend

It is important that you send your booking forms as soon as possible. Why? you ask. This is so we can plan where all the area lines are going to be. We also need to plan enough spaces so you will be with the area you have requested.

If you wait until the last few days it makes it very difficult for us to plan and site you and the club block bookings.

We want to make your arrival as easy as possible and your early booking will help us to achieve our goal. Did you know that even the size of the marquee can't be determined until we know how many club members are coming?.

and best of all .... Save Money !!

Yes thats right!

If you send in your booking form before July 13th you can also claim a £5.00 discount for booking early!
