Caravan, Camping and Motorhome show details released
Ben Fogle heads the celebrities attending the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2017, which takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from 21 to 26 February. Presenter of Countryfile and more recently New Lives in the Wild, Ben Fogle shares his love of the great outdoors alongside TV’s Kate Humble, Caravan and Camping Club president Julia Bradbury and one of TV’s popular bakers, Selasi Gbormittah.
The show’s Discovery Theatre will host an audience Q&A and talks by Fogle along with other celebrities on their own experiences of camping and caravanning, with tips from the industry experts on how to make the most out of outdoor adventures.
With over 350 exhibitors, including caravans, motorhomes, campervans, trailer tents, folding campers, tents, caravan holiday homes, camping equipment and thousands of accessories, February’s show provides inspiration for those planning their next holiday. The much-loved dog agility arena will return as well as many new features for 2017, including bushcraft workshops where visitors can learn essential survival skills.
This year’s show has plenty of free, have-a-go features for all the family, including an indoor children’s assault course. The Visit Wales area includes a mobile climbing mountain; a virtual reality experience of Europe’s longest zip wire; as well as an artificial caving feature where visitors can ‘rope up’ and be guided through the tunnels. A towing and manoeuvring skills area will offer expert tuition for those new to caravanning and motorhome holidays, as well as those who want to brush up on their techniques.
