  • Half-term week February 17 – 22 Birmingham NEC
  • Fun for all the family – advance tickets from just £7*

Following a great British summer this year the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC will kick off the 2015 holiday season in style, inspiring visitors to take a holiday in the great outdoors and enjoy time together away from home. Speaking at the Show about how family life can be improved and enriched by travelling and living in a caravan or motorhome, are two families who are doing just that.

The Meek family sold their house, quit their jobs and have taken their kids out of school in order to increase the amount of quality family time they have. They’re currently heading around the UK living in a caravan and ‘home’ schooling their daughters, Amy (11) and Ella (9) as part of the process. The entire family will talk about their experiences at the show and you can read their blog here.

Meanwhile the Hurst family sold their house, bought a brand new motorhome, delayed their son Daniel starting school and embarked on a journey to visit as many of their Facebook friends in person as possible. They are currently travelling around Spain and will visit more of mainland Europe before returning to the UK in January. Again, the entire family will talk about their experiences at the show and you can read their blog here.

The Show is a great day out for the family and for anyone looking to compare and contrast all the latest caravans, motorhomes and camping gear, not to mention holiday destinations, all under one roof.

In the Expert’s Theatre visitors will get a fantastic introduction to buying that first caravan or motorhome from leading journalists John Wickersham, of Practical Caravan, and Dave Hurrell, chief road tester for Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly.

Visitors can go one better than listening to advice, and actually try towing a caravan or driving a motorhome. Taking place outdoors at the show will be the ever popular Towing Experience, in partnership with the The Camping and Caravanning Club and Volvo cars and Motorhome Manoeuvring Lessons in collaboration with The Caravan Club. Both features are ideal for both newcomer and enthusiast as they can give it a go in a safe environment under expert guidance.

The show is also the UK’s largest camping exhibition, 10% bigger than last year’s show.

One entire hall is completely dedicated to tents of all kinds, from pop-ups to inflatables, multi-room tents and tipis. All the leading brands are there, including Coleman, Isabella Kampa, Khyam, Outwell, PJ Outdoors, Quest, Robens, Royal, Sprayway, Sunncamp, Vango and Zempire.

Andrew Whalley, NCC Events managing director, said: “If anyone wants to find out more about holidaying in the great outdoors with their family they need to come to the NEC in February. Not only do we have a huge array of products on show that facilitate adventure, we’ve got features and speakers that will also inspire visitors to go camping and caravanning in 2015.”

With over 350 exhibitors, the Show is a fantastic value, family day out for both the newcomer and enthusiast alike. There’s also the popular Dog Agility feature, Learning Zone, cookery demonstrations, onsite campsite and many have-a-go free activities for the family.
