Manchester Classic Car Show, 13th to 17th September 2018

An indoor show was to be a new experience for us, with Manchester being the first of two this year. As setting up was to start early on the Friday morning, we decided to travel up on the Thursday and stay overnight in the caravan. The journey there involved quite a challenging drive over Saddleworth Moor with some quite hair-raising hills and bends to navigate. Christina’s choice of site proved to be a little dubious, and certainly nothing like it’s website portrayed, but we had an enjoyable evening with Chris and Cam and set off early the next morning to meet the rest of the gang just outside Event City. We were re-using part of the Carry On Camping display, and the shower scene again grabbed lots of attention. We even had some celebrities, namely Stig and Ed China, photographed in it. We were kept busy throughout both days with lots of visitors wanting to share their memories of caravan holidays, but the highlight of the weekend was when we were awarded the top prize for Best Club Display Stand. The journey home was a little more relaxed although still involved some pretty steep hills, and our stopover on the way back was much nicer, a pitch on a farm with lots of old cars in various states of disrepair.
