Adventure Overland Show - Spring event
« on: November 27, 2017, 05:55:11 PM »
Held twice annually on the last weekends of April & September at Stratford Racecourse, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, ADVENTURE OVERLAND is the largest show of its type. Spanning the entire overland and adventure travel scene, it features all-wheel-drive trucks to 4x4's, off-road adventure bikes to tourers, mountain bikes to tandems, adventure sports in the UK to treks, expeditions and explorations in far-flung foreign lands.

The show also picks up all the elements that link to adventure travel, both local and worldwide. We have experts in bushcraft giving advice and demonstrations as well as providing all those survival essentials such as wild food preparation, animal tracking and first aid. There are experts in navigation, companies that convert vehicles to campervans along with people who have their own vehicles and adventure stories to share. We have a large display area where you meet the owners and see what is for sale. There is massive trade zone with all the equipment and tools you could want for your type of journey. However the real must for any prospective adventurer is a visits to our free Seminar Sessions and Map Room (provided by Overland Sphere), hosted by some of the most respected individuals in the adventure travel world, where you can meet the experts and share their experiences.

The venue is central and easily accessed. We welcome day visitors, but if you really want to immerse yourself in the show we also offer weekend camping. Ticket prices are extremely good value and can be accessed via our web site or on the gate. There is a food court with a ?tastes of the world? theme a well stocked beer/cider tent and evening entertainment Friday and Saturday nights.

For more information have a look at our web site http://www.adventureoverlandshow.net/ or contact us by e-mail or phone.
