Hi Martin,
To answer if I'm coming this year depends on which traders are going to be present.
Please supply a list of traders who are going to be trading.
Cheers

Wicksteed isn’t a trade show, though this year we are hoping to have a few there (Orion Mouldings and Dean’s have confirmed so far, with a few others in talks). It’s the largest dedicated model boat show in the world, which is focussed on sailing on the lake :-))

Come to the largest dedicated model boat show in the world returns for its 26th year!


                                                        25-26th May 2024
 

Hosted at Wicksteed park, Kettering, the show offers free sailing from dawn to night, camping on site,
refreshments and ample room to pitch your own gazebo.

Starting at loam Saturday and running to 4pm Sunday, we cater for all aspects of the hobby, powered or unpowered.
( IC demos will be held twice daily by the Stevenage Model Boat Club, no other IC boats will be permitted. )

The event is free, but the park charges for parking at £7.50 a day. Due to the massive expansion of last year's show,
we have negotiated use of the amphitheatre area for additional stalls, which will feature the Mayhem tent, refreshments,
 RNLI, huge bring & buy and the Wicksteed Model Boat Club.

Follow the Modelboatmayhem facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/ModelBoatMayhem ) page
 or visit modelboatmayhem.co.uk for further updates, pictures from previous years shows and news.

Hi - I am planning to attend one day again this year (not sure which yet) from the Woodspring Model Sailing Club in North Somerset and I'll bring some models.  I will see if I can persuade some other club members to come along too.

Want to come to Wicksteed this year. Last time was many moons ago when a wee lad (might have exaggerated a bit). Few questions how do I book camping, how much, how late can I arrive. Driving up from Devon and can't leave till 5.

Camping will be confirmed in due course, we’re still waiting for the park management to confirm what rates we can have.


What I can say for sure is that the show is free and you can arrive and leave whenever you want to :-))

Yep, finally got on camping website, booking is better this year as it's now done by nights, not days!
It will ask which field you want to be in, but all the pics are the same, with no map or guide!
I'm still deciding what to take to sail, maybe Robbe Atlantis, and Hms Intrepid. Lots of boats up for sale, including a Maggie M part started.

I’ll have a look but we are usually in main campsite field closest to the model boat lake. They have only just reactivated the booking form and it’s different from the last time. Is it asking for names or locations from any drop down menu?

Just looked at the map they provide- I believe it should be ‘Field 1’ where the mayhem site usually sits if I read it correctly.
