NFOL 2017 will take place at Hickstead, The All England Jumping Course, from the 24th - 28th August
NFOL, short for the National Feast of
Lanterns, is the Club’s national rally which takes place every year and is
organised by members, for members.
It’s a unique event where members can meet, and
make, friends who share their passion for camping, all whilst enjoying great
entertainment and the beautiful British countryside. It’s a fabulous,
long-standing, Club tradition and the largest rally of its kind for all forms
The lighting up event is a central part of the NFOL
– it is the tradition that symbolises the word ‘lanterns’ in the rally’s name.
Members decorate their caravans, tents, awnings, motorhomes and trailer tents
with a variety of bright lights to create colourful and atmospheric street
scenes on the Saturday night. The competition is organised by the NFOL
Committee on behalf of the Club, and as a fun family event, only light-hearted
and appropriate displays are allowed. The NFOL also stages an annual themed
Mardi Gras parade, plus a pennon parade where Regions, Special Interest
Sections and DAs join together to show off their colours in the main arena
prior to the closing ceremony.
The theme for the 2017 event is ‘A Day At The
Races’, members old and new will be bringing this to life in the traditional
Mardi Gras parade and lighting up ceremony. We hope to see many members
participating in and enjoying these wonderful Club traditions. Details of how
to get involved will be available on the NFOL website very soon.
As always the NFOL will include live music,
children’s entertainment, a small trade area and most importantly the chance for
friends old and new to come together and enjoy a traditional camping and
caravanning weekend get together. All this can be enjoyed from as little as £72 for a couple, kids go free.
