Organised twice a year (Spring & Late Summer), the last weekends of April & September at Stratford Racecourse, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire CV37 9SE England, the Adventure Overland Show and the International Campervan Show (both held alongside each other at the same venue over the same weekend) is the largest event of its type in the land. Spanning the entire overland and adventure travel scene, it features massive all-wheel-drive expedition trucks through to every conceivable make of 4x4 vehicle, two-wheel-drive campers and motorhomes, 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.
Held in conjunction with the highly-respected media partner "Overland Journal", the event 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 specialists in navigation, companies that convert vehicles to campervans along with people who have their own vehicles and adventure stories to share. We have display areas where you meet the owners and see what is for sale. There are large indoor & outdoor trade areas with all the equipment, tools and accessories you could possibly want for your type of journey, PLUS an "Adventure Bike Zone" with its own traders, displays and seminars, PLUS the popular "Travel Author's Zone" featuring the actual writers themselves.
Then there's our free-to-attend "Seminar Sessions", a full programme of 1hr talks hosted by some of the most respected individuals in the adventure travel world (both amateur and professional), here you can meet the experts and share their experiences.
The venue is central and easily accessible. We welcome day visitors, but if you really want to immerse yourself in the event we also offer pre-event (Mon-Thurs) and weekend camping (Fri-Sun inclusive) with ample space, so you never be turned away. Ticket prices are extremely good value and can be accessed online via our website or pay at the gate upon arrival (cash only). There is a food court with a 'Tastes of the World' theme, a well stocked beer tent hosted by Severn Cider and evening entertainment featuring live music Friday and Saturday nights.
