Fancy representing the forum via a Club Display Stand? It’s a show for us enthusiasts (at last!!!), so it would be good to see you there.

Whoever deals with booking shows … contact me via the website - www.landylive.com

Brilliant, cheers Mark

Breaking news - back by public demand is the National 4x4 & British Off-Road Motorsport Show!!! Previously held between 2001-4, there were three editions of the event at Trentham Gardens in Stoke, the fourth at Shuttleworth in Bedfordshire.

Of late, non-Land Rover owners have been saying that it's a shame they couldn't be involved in LandyLive! so it's now been decided they can after all by having a section all of their own (Stratford Racecourse is BIG) so basically the event has turned into 2-shows-in-1. Better value for money, it's a win win situation for everyone. Dancing

Haven’t been around for a good while, so time for an update. As you’ll see, a healthy smattering of diverse clubs and groups have already booked in so far:-

4x4 Overland Travel forum
4x4 Response North East
Bedworth 4x4 Club
Birmingham Land Rover Group
BLMRA (British Lawn Mower Racing Association)
Camel Trophy Owners Club*
Chiltern Vale Land Rover Club
Convoy 4 Heroes
Discovery Owners Group*
Doncaster District Landrover Club
FWDC (Four Wheel Drive Club)
GLASS (Green Lane Association)
Greenlane 4x4
Landy Rally
Loughborough Land Rover Club
Race2Recovery
Thames Valley 4x4 Club
West Mids 4x4 Response

* pending

However … although more ‘official clubs’ are quite welcome to attend, I’d still like to get more forums involved. Forums/messageboards are after all the modern equivalent of the old style club, so if anybody on here would like to represent the Difflock forum, then a bunch of complimentary weekend passes await. Simply email me for further details, my email address can be found via www.landylive.com

Thought I'd let you see the information about the catering and bar area I'm currently sending out to traders, clubs and regular campers for have booked in advance for LandyLive! + National 4x4 Show + British Off-Road Motorsport Show Still not too late for a Difflock forum display BTW, PM me if interested!

Your thoughts about the catering peeps?



HELP … WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

As this inaugural 3-in-1 event (contractually scheduled for the next 10 years!!!) is all about providing ‘value for money’ and ‘something different’, you will find below information about the catering and evening entertainment provided over the course of the weekend.

The bar for instance is significantly cheaper than most pubs, so please support us by leaving your BBQ’s - if only for an hour or so - to show you are backing what we’re trying to achieve.

Like a broken record, I’ve been going on for ages about LandyLive! being an event for ‘us enthusiasts’ … basically an alternative to being ripped off at numerous other Land Rover/4x4 shows over admission, camping and catering. Plus of course I’m providing something that you have been requesting for years. Well this is it, your show’s finally arrived!

Of course you must still have a communal BBQ with your mates, but remember that supplying live music and low-priced beer isn’t easy to achieve, so if you can … PLEASE JOIN US!!!

Tom McGuigan [Event Director]

P.S. Club officials – please pass this information on to your members.



BREAKFAST Sat & Sun 7.00 – 11.00

The ‘Breakfast Room’: Served within the licensed indoor bar area at LandyLive! (yes … actual tables and chairs, knives & forks!!!) the set breakfast @ £4.50 will comprise of – 2 eggs, 2 sausages, 2 bacon, hash brown and of course the all-important baked beans. That’ll set you up for the day!


DAYTIME CATERING Sat 10.00 – 17.00, Sun 10.00 – 16.00 (at sensible prices!)

Gurkha Field Kitchen: Delicious Nepalese curries prepared/served by ex-Gurkha Regiment servicemen.

Exotic Meats: Burgers with a difference … bison, camel, crocodile, goat, eland, impala, kangaroo, kudu, llama, ostrich, springbok, venison, water buffalo, wild boar, wildebeest, zebra and wagyu(kobe) beef!

The Mexican Bean: Hot 'n' spicy chicken/beef/pork burritos and nachos, plus vegetarian/vegan options.

Wild Oven: Wood fired fare (i.e. quality pizzas) cooked on board a Land Rover Defender mobile oven!

Churros Susanna: Dripping with chocolate, these tasty treats are the Spanish equivalent of doughnuts.

Crêpe Escapes: Savoury crêpes incl. Hawiian, Mediterranean, goats cheese & caramelised red onion, plus all the usual sweet favourites.


EVENING CATERING Fri & Sat 18.00 – midnight (again, at sensible prices!)

Gurkha Field Kitchen: Delicious Nepalese curries prepared and served by ex-Gurkha Regiment servicemen.

The Mexican Bean: Hot 'n' spicy chicken/beef/pork burritos and nachos, plus vegetarian and vegan options.

Wild Oven: Wood fired fare (sorry – only open Fri evening + daytime Sat & Sun, not open Saturday evening)

Churros Susanna: Dripping with chocolate, these are the Spanish equivalent of doughnuts.


LICENSED BAR Fri 16.00 – midnight, Sat & Sun 12.00 – midnight (better than pub prices!)

Real ale @ only £2.50 per pint, larger/cider @ only £3.00 per pint … plus wines & spirits.

Disco (or even karaoke if you’re brave … or mad!) Friday evening, disco + live band Saturday evening.


LIVE MUSIC Sat evening, early until midnight

Playing three sets Saturday evening, we present Midlands legends Skawaddy. As their name suggests, ska and reggae is their speciality, but 40 years in the music business means they play everything from rock & roll and punk to middle-of-the-road covers. “Bundles of energy” best sums up this band – bet you drop before they do!

If you mean the outdoor event at Trentham Gardens nr. Stoke (which of course is in Staffordshire) called the National 4x4 Show between 2001-2003? Then the answer is yes.

If you mean that indoor 4x4 show at Bingley Hall, Staffordshire County Showground sponsored by Total Off Road magazine, then the answer is definitely NO. That event in February really wasn't well received, so quickly got a bad name. I for one exhibited there, and froze for my troubles. The venue kept turning off the heating, presumably to save money, with the result that the temperature rapidly dropped. Besides that, the hall itself was a dour miserable place that clearly had had its day, not surprising folk didn't like it.

Ask me another!

Yep, Colin and his merry men are so good like that.

Mind you, it's going to be difficult keeping them off the actual racecourse when they get hold of Race2Recovery's Dakar Bowlers - it's a natural grass-track circuit! Laughing

And jolly nice it was to meet (again) Team Chaos and supporters at the Overland Show at Warwick Race Course last year. Have a good one this time and pass on my best to those that might remember me Cool

LandyLive was good, I think the weather put people off, though it wasn't that bad and I did miss Sunday's afternoon storm. But other than that, I really liked it, saw some new trade stands with different bits and pieces and it was good catching up with friends and meeting new faces.

The Scouser's spot on, LandyLive! is no more. Crying or Very sad

For a first attempt the event was okay, but like a lot of others, I really expected more traders and visitors. Says it all really, Land Rover shows have reached their peak, so I won't bother any more. I shall in future concentrate on the overland scene, something I like anyway.

That said, thanks to all those who did make the effort - it's appreciated!!! It was especially good Saturday night in the bar, the ska duo were excellent.

Cheers for now!
