We went last year. It was a good show. Lots of different stands - parts, tours, tyres, clubs etc. I was helping to man one of the stands so never made it outside to see the off-road course etc.
 
Anyone been before, is it any good?
Will you get your Defender stolen from the car park?
We went a few years ago, maybe 2018 it was pretty good tbf, smaller than billing etc

The off road course was a bit more challenging than billing iirc. Bit scratchier

There's vip parking for landys but its a tenner which I think takes the pìss a bit.

Seems a popular show on other forums
 
Spent a couple of hours there, was smaller than a few years ago I think but the jumble sale was inside 👍🏻

Few more companies doing roof tent hire and expedition vehicle hire popping up

Burger van was extortionate but fookin lovely 😂

Decent little show, off road was a laugh. Marshall said I might struggle on the Avon's, they're not quite full AT, but it was sound. Quite muddy but not scratchy.

Helped a lad get his rear spring back in 😅 4 of us rocked the 90 and he just pushed it back in 👍🏻

Went to the show today, my first one! Was great to see so many Defenders of all types there, from mid restoration, working vehicles, to immaculately restored and upgraded ones. Had a good look around the stalls and the "VIP Parking" for Landys, got lots of inspiration. Was good to see some of the products for sale in person, have a feel of the quality etc.

Watched a few trucks tackle the off road course, looked very impressive. One of the marshals took us around in his Disco (for a small fee), it was very impressive. From where we were watching originally we thought it was a tough but ok course, from actually going around in it it was very different! Lots of steep inclines and declines, all covered in slippy mud, and very bouncy. Absolutely loved it! Will have to take the Defender next year once I get some practice in.

Of course, spent some money at the stalls:
  • 2x 20l Jerry cans (they'll fit in one of the external lockers).
  • Gloss black radiator grille.
  • Internal door handles.
  • Snow cowl and replacement wing top grille.
  • Towing pintle and D shackle for the front bumper.
  • New windscreen rubber seal, will need replacing at some point. Figured I may as well buy it now rather than waiting until I want to do the job and then ordering it and waiting.
  • Various sized grommets for filling the holes leftover from removing bolts from the body.
  • Breaker bar to convince stubborn bolts to move.
  • Ear defenders for the little one so long drives in the rattly, noisy engine don't damage her hearing!

Forgot all about this.
Son has Avon AT on his D2, doesn't go off road in it though.
Still got your front bumper so that's good.

Good haul!😂 the off road course at billing is ideal to dip your toe mate 👍🏻

Was the Marshalls truck the green d2 with the Amber beacons? Saw it doing a few laps

Will check that out, thank you!

The one I was in I think was once green, 90% mud though as it was the end of the day! But yes it had ambers on.
