THE BUS STOP OVER
The Family Friendly VW Festival .. since 2004
Superb Venue .. Newark Showground!
After the success of the 2015 event we are delighted to be hosting The Bus Stop Over 2016 at Newark Showground in Nottingham once again.
With 84 acres set inside a secure fence, the Newark Showground offers a perfect venue for The Bus Stop Over.
The soil is a free-draining sand over gravel, which is serviceable when many other local and regional facilities have long closed.
Access can be from the A46, but the ideal approach is from the A17 which allows a longer build of traffic onto the 20 acre South-Eastern runway. The Newark Showground is only 1.5 miles from the A1 and offers exceptional facilities.
For 2016 we have moved over to the other side of the showground giving us better camping areas & a simpler layout for Family Camping. The Bus Stop Over we have will be focussed in & around the biggest building on site, ' The George Stephenson Exhibition Hall', or the Bus Barn as we're calling it, offering a huge 2,500 sq m capacity with an agricultural feel ... taking us back to those early days at Wymeswold!
The Bus Barn will be hosting our Evening Entertainment including live acts, a number of indoor Trade Stalls, Licensed Bar & Toilets.
Alongside the Bus Barn we will have our main Trade & Display area & our favourite caterers back in a classic square set-up.
Camping will be split into 3 areas:-
- General Camping on the grass blocks behind the Trade Area
- Quiet Family Camping well away from the Bus Barn where strict noise restrictions are enforced
- Club Camping Area
All of the camping areas are surrounded by tarmac rounds & have excellent drainage so it will not be MudFest at BSO!
Day Parking will be outside the main gate on the huge old RAF runway.
No Portaloos at BSO !! .. although we've always kept on top of the loo situation they are never the best & at this venue we have ample Flush Toilet Facilities with 2 blocks minutes away from wherever you may be on-site one of which contains free hot showers.
With quality lighting, access & firm ground we really feel this is the perfect venue for The Bus Stop Over!
Tickets on sale this week!! ..Please call back !
