If I can only come on one day to Wicksteed - it is a 250 mile round trip and there is a local steam fair the same weekend - which day would you recommend for most action? I am guessing Saturday as Sunday will start shutting down earlier.

Information regarding Mayhem parking


Donít worry itís good news!


So we are parking in the same place so no worries there but the entrance will be in a different location to where it has been in previous years. We ask you follow the Mayhem signs for the parking area and abide by the speed limits within the park which are 10mph on the road and 5mph on grassed areas. Please respect the marshaller and we ask you to print off a copy of the Mayhem Parking Permit if possible, we do have some to issue out if needed.
Be aware that the front row this year is reserved for blue badge holders. We will have 5 trolleys available for transporting models/tables/etc to the lake side.
Campers: we have a large area cordoned off for our use with Mayhem signs up to indicate the area. You will see the French detachment and Luton Club members already in residence.


Toilet facilities are located next to the hexagon cafe close to the Mayhem parking area.
And please donít forget to pay for your parking when you leave the park either via the machine kiosk in the main complex or via the app.


Have fun and see you all this weekend  :-))

I did a 'search' for it and all it came up with was this thread.

Hi its Richard from the Woodspring Model Sailing Club in Portishead, Somerset.  I haven't visited Wicksteed before but I hope to be with you on Saturday (and yes I have spotted the parking permit thanks!).  I will bring a model - my old Molendinar Pilot boat which I restored a few years ago:

Looking forward to meeting some more Mayhemers!  :-)

I believe that RC 'Aircraft' are not allowed in the grounds of Wicksteed Park !!
I know there has recently been an overhead photograph of the lake uploaded.
I do not know the origin of the photo or if this was with permission. I suggest that anyone intending/hoping to fly 'anything' should seek permission from the Park Management.
It's essential to preserve the reputation of Martin and the Mayhem team and the Wicksteed park Model Boat Club.
