*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Okay, it's been mentioned a few times in the EM lounge, so I thought it was about time we attended the Ashby Folville Car Show.

The show happens every second Tuesday of every month.
During the summer months in-excess of 4000 people descend, to view hundreds of show cars.

Folk start to turn up from about 17:00, and it soon gets really busy.

So based on that, and the fact it's mid-week, I propose that we meet at Donny services at 17:00 and aim to set off at 17:15.

I know it's a little after visitors start to gather at the show and we risk being caught in the busyness. . . . but I understand that folk have to work too.

The show has a FB page that you can have a gleg at if you like. Linky

Upon reading FB comments, I see that there has been a 'Bear in the air' around the area picking up those who choose to partake in 'spirited driving'
We will be having a nice sedate trundle to the show, so will be okay.

Hope to see you along.
