Hi Steve, Entry is normally at Trade entrance just before the main entrance if you are coming in from Stafford. Show your voucher and it will get scanned and a beautiful  wrist band will be handed over. They will guide you to where to go but if I know when you are coming I can meet you and help out. I suggest you then get your bike up the ramp to the balcony first then sort out your "accomodation" afterwards. Gareth will be on hand to guide you where to pitch your tent. Just be a bit careful coming up the ramp especially if it's a bit damp.  Once on the balcony just keep pushing your bike to near the end and we will be there to welcome you on the left. I shall get there about 2ish but Gareth and Grahame usually beat me. Looking forward to seeing both you and your bike.Hope this helps.  Ian 👍🏍?

Ian has just about summed it up. It's up to you if you want to set up camp first then bring the bike up after that. We'll be on site from midday ish and will try and secure an area for camping near my van, were normally quite lucky and end up fairly close. I'll ping you mine and Graham's mobile numbers, reception on site is very patchy and poor so if you don't get any answers just keep ringing.

Look forward to catching up at the show.

You won’t need one Steve, the show ground is very easy to find. Enjoy the weekend one and all. As the yoofs now say I’m “well jel”
Cheers, Michael

OH! Not so sure about that Michael, I found Stafford to be a warren of industrial estates and MoD litter. On Friday's the whole place appears to be out to play dodgems, with worky vans careering to get home, schoolies dodging everything and being gormless on the phones, whilst frustrated drivers just barge and chance their arm at the numerous roundabouts!  >:(  Perhaps it's just me not being familiar with the argie bargie of "driving" darn sarf in conurbations.

Go early Steve, plan to arrive before 15:00, use the toll around Birmingham, unless some tw*t has turned into a car park and put a belisha beacon on top of your helmet! :o

And have a good weekend.

Good health, Bill

Thanks Michael & Bill
i'm keen to try my phone as a sat/nav. the only problem is, it's got a bit of a delay with the spoken wordy thingy, and looking at the screen is a bit of a no no when, as Bill says, i'm approaching the stafford area and looking out for all the loonies!. i'll aim to get there by 15.00hrs.

i'm sure it'll be huge fun

hope the weather is kind to us.

You could always get somewhere near, then pull into the side of the road and simply wait for a passing vehicle towing a bike trailer. Then bob in behind it and follow it to the show ground 😁😉
Yes you’ll have great weekend. Enjoy 👍

Arrived home safely and very dry at 5:45pm after yet another brilliant weekend at Stafford.
Many thanks yet again to Gareth and Graham for supplying food and drink for the weekend and organising tickets and more. We wouldn't be able to enjoy it without you.
Also lovely to meet and talk bikes and boIIox with
Gareth, Graham, Steve F, John R, Mathew P, Steve L. Trevor was a welcome visitor on Saturday and Richard paid us a flying visit on Sunday. Lovely to see you all.
