Country & western show - Malvern

Hi


I've booked on this show for the First time........Looking at maps it looks quite isolated

Are there shop's nearby OR is it best to come with full provisions ??

I don't bring a car with me

Thanks

I would get your provisions before you turn up- Malvern is a short drive away and parking can be difficult. May see you there.

Hi Phil

There is usually a small shop on site for papers milk bread etc but no big shops near, so I would bring plenty with you to feed the tribe.

Make sure that you arrive with plenty of water on board. Last year, where we were, the water supply came out at slow trickle speed, just a tad quicker than fast drip.

Malvern last year was the first time we had camped at a show, went in general camping as not booked and had a great time...
Looking forward to it again this year. I was half tempted to get a cowboy hat but resisted..
Campsite shop will be there for emergency items but you pay for it..

One thing I did like at Malvern was they left plenty of space both in front and back of your "pitch" so easy to get out if you did want to drive out..

Hi Phil

Just a word of advice about what else to pack.

The showground at Malvern is a bit weird as regards the weather. It is a place of extremes.

It's in the shelter of the hills and if it's a hot day elsewhere it's absolutely roasting at the show, and conversely if it's generally a cold day you don't see many brass monkeys looking at the vans!!

There are standpipes around so you can get water for the dog. Our mutt is trained to drink from a running tap, but if yours isn't, one of those folding plastic dog bowls might be handy if it is hot.

Most of the aisles are tarmac, and it's a big place, so if you have delicate feet a pair of comfy walking shoes would be an advantage. If it has been very wet for a while before the show, it will be muddy in places off the tarmac.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Hi Phil,

All that's been said before is excellent advice - Malvern is a really great show! Also, if you fancy wearing a cowboy hat then this is the place to do it! Cowboys and Indians everywhere

Looking forward to meeting everyone and if anyone is wondering: I'd book up as soon as you can as it's bound to be a sell out!
