Back at the end of last year, we announced the 2021 National Camping Show. Due to on-going COVID restrictions, the organisers of the National Camping Show have decided to delay the launch of the four day event until May. The show will now go ahead at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire between the 6th – 9th May 2021, which will hopefully coincide with the start of the new camping season. The event has already attracted interest from over 1000 visitors who have already registered to attend and are keen to see the latest tent ranges and camping accessories available from the leading family camping brands.

New ranges of tents will all be pitched outdoors as well as a display of awnings, trailer tents, campervans, drive-away awnings, camping furniture and accessory products available for summer 2021, offering visitors the opportunity to compare, browse and purchase from a large selection of tents and outdoor products available at the show.

Brands already committed to exhibit at the National Camping Show include all the major camping brands in the UK, including Bo-Camp, Campingaz, Coleman, Crespo, Dometic, Kampa, Lichfield, Narbonne, Outwell, Quest, Regatta, Snow Peak, Summerline, Terra Nova, Vango, Westfield, Wild Country and Zempire with more exhibitors expressing interest in joining the event.

Admission is free but pre-registration on the show’s website is advised as numbers on-site at any one time due to COVID restrictions may have to be limited. A ‘COVID safe’ environment will be provided at the time, adhering to the latest government regulations regarding outdoor events and gatherings.

Stoneleigh Park showground is an excellent outdoor venue in the heart of England with great transport links. There is plenty to do nearby when you're not looking at tents, including the beautiful town of Leamington Spa with its Regency architecture, the impressively well-preserved Warwick Castle and Shakespeare’s birthplace, the medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
