In what will be our 40th year, we are pleased to announce that our Stansted House show on 21st to 23rd July 2017 will be a weekender in the stunning grounds of Stansted Park in Hampshire.
A camping weekend from 12 noon on Friday to 4pm on Sunday. There will be the usual marquee entertainment plus showers/posh toilets, and Derek Drinkwater will be providing the themed catering and bar. Prices are £35 a head via pre-entry with kids under 16 free. The numbers camping are capped so get in early. If there are any places left on the Friday they will be £50 per head.
DJ’s playing Rock & Roll, Soul, Ska, Indie etc. Our band for Friday night are Rockabilly/boogie woogie band, Catballou. See video link below.
Saturday day time:
Relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Stansted Park, go for a ride on the scenic miniature railway as it meanders through the grounds, get lost in the Maze, and let the kids loose in the adventure playground. Why not visit the House, on site restaurant for a cream tea, the garden centre and craft shops?
At around midday we will set off on a leisurely cruise through some nice open country roads to visit the hallowed Goodwood Motor Circuit for a cuppa and watch some racing. Back in time for tea on the lawn.
Kicking off at 8pm – Our “Back to 1977″ fancy dress party to celebrate our 40th year, with one of the best Rock Cover bands in the UK, Stone Free. They will be playing 70’s and 80’s classics, plus DJ playing 70’s tunes. See link below.
Rise bleary eyed and park your ride in the show & shine field. The bar and catering will of course be open and you will be serenaded by Dawn Gracie in her inimitable style, plus background music. Prize giving around 3pm and show is on until 4pm.
Day show cars are of course welcome on Sunday at £8 for a car with driver and one passenger. If you book these tickets in advance they are only £6. As we have acres of space we are having an area for standard classic cars as well this year, so no one feels left out! see below*
Public entry is £8 per person on the Sunday. U16’s free.
Trader and sponsor enquiries are most welcome – just email us for further details.
* No one likes rules, however we need a few to ensure we have the type of event that reflects our ethos:
