Monday 10 December 2007

The Camping and Caravanning Club are once again pleased to confirm that they will be running the official camp site for the National Boat, Caravan and Outdoor Show at Birmingham’s NEC.

The Clubs camp site will be on the West Car Park at the NEC. It is open to the public from 17 to 24 February 2008. For the second time, pitches are available with or without electric hook-up, costing £18.50 or £14 per night respectively, unchanged from 2007. Run by The Club’s experienced Holiday Site Managers, the site offers campers a secure overnight pitch, with fresh water, a motorhome service point and waste disposal. Campers can visit the show and also enjoy the adventures that the Midlands has to offer.

As well as the comfort on site, visitors can also benefit from a comfort getting to the show.  A luxury fleet of chauffer-driven Land Rovers will be on-hand to give campers a shuttle service to the show entrance. With five large halls – equivalent to ten full-size football pitches – to explore, the Club can make it easier on your feet.

Pitches are on sale now and are available from The Camping and Caravanning Club on telephone number 0845 130 7257
