MCN big meet at Peterborough

Post by Bonnielad » Tue Mar 07, 2017 3:00 pm

At Northampton we were talking about the annual club meeting and how much some of us missed the Stafford venue because it gave us something to do over the full weekend. As we all know the venue has been set for this year but my local bike club have been invited to the MCN show at Peterborough in May. Apparently there's lots of entertainment over the weekend and they not only welcome clubs but offer substantial discounts too. I was thinking if a few of us went there, we could perhaps recce it out to see if it would make a suitable venue for the future.
Two other things in its favour: Peterborough is fairly central to the country and it's in May so the camping might have a chance of being a bit drier. It's also quite close to chateau Shiney so royalty should be well catered for... :lol:
This is the show that has replaced the BMF rally so should be worth going to in any case.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.

I've been to the Land Rover show at Peterborough and one of the bike shows, but just for day visits. Similar to Stafford, probably many of the same traders, so a good place to pick up kit, tools and parts.

I would go to this one, but I'm already booked on that weekend in May.

Count me in!! If there was enough interest to make it a club meet then I could arrange camping. I bet we cold probably camp at the show ground as well.

Only 20 min ride from New Lodge Farm, so worth thinking about a social weekend with a visit to the Bike show at Peterborough, shame I cannot get away that weekend, but will consider 2018.

Why would we need to camp at New Lodge? I thought the idea would be to spend the weekend at the show
