I've noticed that TFestival and Busfest are on consecutive weekends (Aug/Sept).

I think the family would have Van-overkill if we go to both.

As I live bang in the middle of them I'm definitely going to one, but which one I've not decided yet.
What are peoples preferences.

Thanks

I went to Busfest for the first time last year. It was pretty big. Lots of dogs (woof woof) - and I mean lots.

I went to research conversion companies and van layouts for A T5 and I was not disappointed!

Went as a day visitor so can't say anything about the entertainment.

Lots of trade stands.

Did I mention the dogs?

I think busfest is the one for the weekend, as I reckon there'll be much more to buy, do, and be entertained by. I worked at gaydon for a while, so Tfest for me will be a sunday thing I reckon, as I'm less than an hour away and we're 'saving ourselves for busfest :ILU:....(or was that crufts...?.....er......er...:confused:

so see ya at one or the other then matey :ILU:

We always go to busfest.its ace.it cost so much to camp in later years that we always book Tewksbury travel lodge for two nights.last year cost about 23 quid a night.fri and sat.then decide wich day depending on weather to visit the show.sometimes we end up going both days
By tfest do you mean the thing at beaulueu?if so went along on Sunday last year and arrived around late lunch and all the vans were just leaving so a bit pants really.maybe it's better if your camping

Did both last year. They are not the same thing as TFest is a laid back family oriented afair and Busiest is a full on festival with masses to see and do.

Only going to Busiest this year.

Two totally different shows.
If you want to see the biggest collection of vans in one place and the biggest collection of traders, then Busfest is the place to go.
If you have family and want a good laugh, try T Fest.
I'm doing both.
