    Stoneleigh and Newark Shows 2022

    Please note the Stoneleigh National Kitcar Show is scheduled for Sunday 1st May and Monday 2nd May this year (Spring Bank Hol)

    I understand the Sunday will be the day for the AGM - but I'm sure Norm will confirm the details.

    The one-day entry fee this year will be £5 for drivers of kitcars and £15 for passengers (unless under 16 in which case free). If camping the fee incl. entry on both days will be £15 for kitcar drivers and £25 for passengers.

    I am hoping (and expecting) to get our usual pitch in Block 51A

    There will also be a Newark Show on 23rd and 24th July - fee £10 in advance £13 on the day - and free entry for kitcar drivers. More details to follow

    Big Ta for posting the details, Pete, and also thanks for sorting the marquee as well.

    As Chairman, I can confirm the AGM will be held at Stoneleigh on Sunday 1st May, 12:00. This year though, I promise not to lose the *&!!@?! minutes afterwards....

    We'll be having a marquee at Stoneleigh as usual, but as with last year, no hot drinks or hot dogs/burgers. Or not yet, anyway - we'll see how it's all panning out. We're also planning on booking a pitch at Newark, but no marquee there so bring a brolly and a chair!

    I'll be creating a separate "AGM" thread shortly, so if you're coming and want anything discussing, you can bung it in that thread for the Agenda. Watch out for that one!

    They’re getting greedy on the entry fee I think.

    It's an ever decreasing spiral I fear.
    Traditionally they would cover the cost of hiring the venue and hosting the event by selling floor space to the exhibitors and then maybe turn this into profit by selling tickets to the visitors/foot traffic who visit the show.
    Nowadays there are considerably less exhibitors and the show is smaller so to balance the (no doubt escalating) venue costs they then have to use the visitors entrance fee instead of selling the exhibitor stand space to help cover the cost of hosting the event.
    The lower the attendance and number of exhibitors one year then the higher the ticket price has to be the following year just to break even. The irony being that it therefore now costs the public more to gain entrance to see a much smaller show....

    Re: Stoneleigh and Newark Shows 2022

    Hi Martin - see PM - but the answer to your Q. is you can pay at the gate - which is what I have done for many years although might be cheaper to book in advance. This is an important show for the kit car industry although in the last few years has been smaller than formerly. It's a good opportunity to meet and talk to Club members and look at some of the cars so it would be good to see you on either of the two days - although as the AGM is on the Sunday this is probably when more members will attend. See you there!

    If anyone is attending Newark in their Stratos, which day(s) are you planning to be there please ? No need to answer that Guy, I can guess !


    I'm hoping to have a good look at some cars while trying to string together some sensible questions instead of just drooling...
