Trentham Gardens, Stoke. 17th June 2018

Post by M60NJP » 10 Nov 2017, 10:40

I've been to a large number of events over the last 6+ years, most are excellent a couple mediocre and a tiny number, complete crap!

I went to the Trentham Show 3 years on the bounce and as we do with many events, decided to 'retire' it for a while as they can all become a bit 'samey'. It was however the only event we were able run with sufficient participation, outside the SE of England.........although frustratingly about 80% of the attendees travelled c150 miles or more, from the SE!! I don't know why folk from the Midlands and the North didn't attend the nearest event!!

It is always on Father's Day, so that needs to be borne in mind by anyone thinking of coming if there's any likely family pressure to do other things! I haven't got the full spec for 2018, but admission is usually fairly cheap (about a fiver), the location is excellent with loads to do for all ages and is a couple of hours max from most places in England (apologies to our Scots!). If you haven't spotted it, the date is only a week after the Gorinchem evewnt so please factor this in as well!

At this stage, I'm just gauging interest, so please just add your name if you think it's something you'd like to attend. If there's enough interest, we'll formalise it and of not it won't go ahead as a formal BMWE event. We may have the opportunity to buddy up with the regional BMW Car Club folk who, unlike the rest of that organisation, are top people and most welcoming to non-members (although I haven't asked them yet!!).

Sunday 17th June, Stoke on Trent (sorry!), Father's Day - who fancies it?

For those coming any distance, the Premier Inn at Trentham Gardens has rooms available at £47 per night for the Saturday night - it's right outside the gardens themselves!

It'll fill up fast though!
