Adventure Overland Show 2013

The biggest show of its type with the largest gathering of traders at any travel show in the UK, ADVENTURE OVERLAND 2013 … the 4×4, Bike & Trekking Travel Show weekend of 28-29 September 2013, promises to be something special this year … no mean feat considering this will only be its second year!

Having found a new home at Stratford Racecourse, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire for the next 5 years – it outgrew last year’s Northants venue before the inaugural event had even finished – ADVENTURE OVERLAND spans the entire ‘alternative travel scene’ from adventure cycle bike-packing to fatbikes, off-road adventure motorcycle tours here in the UK to Himalayan adventures, 4×4 campervans right through to massive expedition trucks, plus adventure sports treks, expeditions and explorations in far-flung foreign lands.

In keeping with the uniqueness of the show, a host of free attractions will be available to keep visitors entertained

Bushcraft Activities Area – everything from fire-lighting to preparing road kill for the pot

Bush Mechanics – learn the skills to keep your vehicle going when on the road, or more importantly – off it!

Adventure bike and cycle zone – last year motorcycle traders requested they have a specialised area to call their own, well here it is

Camper Conversion Corner – converting/building a campervan yourself? Then seek the advice of professionals and DIY enthusiasts

Expedition First Aid Demos – knowing what to do when confronted by injuries in extreme situations can quite literally be a ‘life-saver’

Navigation Know-How – advice on mapping – electronic or otherwise

Overland Preparation – hear from the experts about vehicle preparation for trips and expeditions

Seminar Sessions – featuring guest speakers passing on their adventure travel experiences with bikes and 4×4 vehicles

Vehicle Display Area – comprising expedition trucks & all-wheel-drive campers

Newly introduced is the reduced fee “2-Wheeler Weekend Pass” covering both day admission and camping, designed soley for bicycle and motorbike riders who arrive at the Stratford Racecourse venue on their steeds – bicycles, tandems, motorbikes, even trikes (okay, 3-wheelers as well). Now the entire weekend is just £25 (and that includes a pillion passenger) for the entire weekend – that’s half the price of the standard booking fee!
