It didn't seem that long ago that we closed up 2017's show calendar at Stoneleigh. Now we're already 2 shows into 2018, and preparing for Stafford in a few weeks time.
We had a decent weekend down at Peterborough 4x4 spares weekend. The show is brand new on the calendar and had a decent turnout
Just a quick note on our plans for the rest of the year - we've had to drop Ripon in March unfortunately. Due to a number of logistical issues we're unable to attend, but hopefully will be there in the Autumn.
We'll post more information on Stafford soon, but here's the location details: 25th February 2018 at the Staffordshire County Showground ,Stafford.
The showground is situated on the A518 Stafford to Uttoxeter Road about 4 miles from Stafford. Drivers from either the north or the south using the M6 motorway should exit at junction 14 and follow the signs to the county showground.
getoffroad.com will be at a brand new event this weekend, attending the Peterborough 4x4 & Vintage Spares Day. We've been regulars at the spares days for a couple of years now, and are happy to support a new location.
We'll be indoors at this show, in a prime location to be confirmed - follow us on instagram and facebook now to get the latest over the weekend. We take plenty of photos of our adventures, and throw in a few special offers too!
So to the details... we'll be at The Pavilion Hall and Cattle Buildings, East Of England Showground, Peterbough PE2 6HE. Admission £6.50 per adult, under 15s free, free parking, well behaved dogs on leads welcome. Open from 9am til 1pm.
Your show team this week will be Andy, Andy, Mark and Dan. See you there!
We're currently preparing for our second show of the year, having been in attendance at the 4x4 and Vintage Spares Day at Malvern a couple of weekends ago.
Our next show is at Peterborough for another Vintage Spares Day this time covering the East of the country.
We've also confirmed a number of other shows this week, so here is our current list. Please note that this may change, and we're always on the lookout for further opportunities on the show and event front - please contact us on 0333 555 0004 with any suggestions

Last weekend the getoffroad.com show team ended up back where we started. Stoneleigh again hosted the Great British Land Rover Show, and it was another great day out on the road.
Last year we arrived at Stoneleigh not really knowing what we expect from the day. It ended up as a very good show for us. Our products proved popular and it was great to speak to real Land Rover enthusiasts about what they wanted from us.
This year we actually knew what we were doing - to some degree anyway(!), and had a much larger stand. Despite a few queues, we managed to serve more people quickly this time and hopefully all our customers left happy with their show special offers
On to 2018
So that;s it for 2017 from the events team. We'll be back in 2018 with a few schedule changes. We've not got a final calendar yet - and a number of existing shows are moving around the calendar, re-inventing themselves, and even moving locations.
At the moment its looking like we'll start in January, for the Malvern 4x4 Spares Day. We'll then be in Peterborough for the 4x4 and Vintage Spares Day, and in Stafford for the Indoor 4x4 Show.
Throughout the year we'll be back at the biggest shows - Edinburgh for the Scottish Land Rover Show, Kelmarsh and the big one - Peterborough for the LRO Show.
Thanks to all our customers from Andy, Andy, Dan, Mark, Rhys and Joner. See you in 2018, and remember our deals will continue online throughout the winter period!
Just a quick update on our preparations for The Great British Land Rover Show at Stoneleigh. We're all booked in both at our hotel, and more importantly our usual "pitch" in Hall 2!
