Thousands expected at free caravan showcase in Shrewsbury
More than 15,000 visitors are expected to flock to Shrewsbury’s Salop Leisure for the largest free caravan showcase in the UK.
There will also be a host of free attractions for all the family at the West Midlands Caravan, Motorhome and Destinations Show, which takes place at the company’s Emstrey headquarters between April 27 and May 12.
Featuring the latest in touring caravans, motorhomes, campervans, holiday homes and lodges, the event also gives visitors the opportunity to explore Love2Stay, Salop Leisure’s luxury touring and glamping resort.
A host of free attractions, including rock climbing, canoeing, paddle boarding, treasure hunts, falconry displays, a wildlife experience, donkey rides and face painting for children, will be available over the Bank Holiday weekend between May 4 and 6.
Ed Glover, Salop Leisure’s marketing manager, said: “The show is always the highlight of the year here at Salop Leisure, attracting in the region of 15,000 to 20,000 people.
“It’s a mixture of existing owners, first time buyers and local families who come to enjoy the activities on offer while also experiencing the lifestyle which owning a caravan brings.
“A free activity programme designed to promote the Heart of England, Mid Wales Inland and Mid Wales Coastal as holiday destinations allows visitors to experience holiday home and leisure vehicle ownership.
“We hope that while families are enjoying the activities, it will enable them to gain an insight into our fabulous destinations.”
“The show is a perfect chance to explore the exciting life of caravan ownership in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, with expert advice and exclusive show discounts available.
“There will also be refreshments on offer, with all the proceeds donated to Shropshire Mind.”
