If, like me, you have felt a huge outdoor-festival-and-event sized hole in your life this year, then this might just have you bouncing around with excitement. There is a brand new event, the National Camping Show, set for March 18-21, 2021. Four days of all things tents and sleeping outdoors? Oh yes.

Taking place at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire, the National Camping Show is a “unique opportunity for camping enthusiasts to see the latest innovations in the camping and outdoor market just before the start of the camping season”. Assuming, that is, that you’re a “normal” person who doesn't go camping all through the winter like me… And even if you are, you may well have only scraped it through to the promised land of Spring completely sick of your tent and on the market for a new one. Insert bigger, smaller, drier, warmer, fancier or lighter as appropriate.

Even better, all the UK’s biggest camping brands will be there. The line up so far includes Bo-Camp, Campingaz, Coleman, Crespo, Dometic, Kampa, Lichfield, Narbonne, Outwell, Quest, Regatta, Snow Peak, Summerline, Terra Nova, Vango, Westfield, Wild Country and Zempire. Phew! Plus they’ll have their tents already pitched for you outdoors, so you can peruse camping options the way you wander through IKEA. It’s a pretty unique opportunity to compare tents from leading brands all in one place and see what’s new on the market.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’s free admission to the event and free parking. Yep. All the tent, free to get in, taking place near enough to Leamington Spa and Warwick that you could make a weekend of it. Assuming you aren’t going to spend 96 hours trying out every single tent in the field, that is.

So, to recap: March 18-21, 2021 at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. All the tents and more. Book your place at to make sure you get a ticket and all event updates.
