We're off to Malvern this weekend for Land Rover Show & 4x4 Spares Weekend. We'll also be bringing our trusty Defender. Probably.
See, we had a great weekend up in Edinburgh for the Scottish Land Rover Show 2018, and our show vehicle obviously came along with us - one year on from it's very first trip post-refurb.
Unfortunately, it didn't come back with us! An immobiliser issue meant no ignition, no starter and no fuel pump. Although we got it started, it wasn't really ready to run the nearly 300 miles home.
However, the good news is she's ready to make the trip down to Malvern. The dash isn't exactly back together yet, but we'll be ready by showtime, and have a number of changes planned to improve things for Kelmarsh and Peterborough.
This weekend then, we'll be at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire, WR13 6NW. This is a two day Land Rover show inc club and heritage vehicle displays both indoors in the Severn Hall and outdoors. We'll be in the aforementioned Severn Hall up the ramp next to the arena.
This is a full weekend show, so a 9am start on both Saturday and Sunday. It's this weekend - 2nd and 3rd of June 2018.
Malvern was good to us last year and we're really looking forward to returning!
As usual further details (and photos of our broken Defender) over on instagram and facebook.
Back to where it all began! Sort of... We actually started doing shows in Stoneleigh in 2016 - but things really kicked on last year in Edinburgh, when we took our Defender show vehicle on a test drive. We put a video together of the story - see below, or visit our news blog for a recap on what the GOR Project involved.
Anyway.. on to Edinburgh 2018, and we're back. It's a tough gig this, but we wouldn't miss it for the world - 8 hour round trip, but the chance to engage with our Scottish customers and bring the show specials up north!
We'll be in the same place as last year - take a right just inside the show site. May 26th - May 27th 2018 - a full weekend again this one, and double the chance to grab a bargain.
The Scottish Land Rover Show 2018 will be the greatest global gathering of all things green oval Scotland has ever seen. Don’t miss out bring the family too as there’s plenty for all ages to see and do.
Advance day tickets cost just £12 per adult and children aged 5-15 are just £5 or make a weekend of it and camp over from just £70 for 2 adults and two children or three adults. Car Parking is £5 per car. Ticket booking fees will apply.

Later this month we'll be up in Edinburgh for the Scottish Land Rover Show. The Edinburgh showground means a return visit to the show that really kickstarted our Defender rebuild project. We'll have more details shortly.
First though, we're off to the Classic Land Rover Show at The British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire. We'll be exhibiting our show vehicle and our show specials will be added to with some brand new lines. You'll find the museum just off the M40 at Junction 12. The postcode is CV35 0BJ, but the museum is well signposted locally too.
No news yet on where we're located, but as ever we'll be posting further details on instagram
