Celebrations lined up for National Camping and Caravanning Week

Events are starting to be announced for the annual National Camping and Caravanning Week, which runs later this month, caravantimes.co.uk reports.

Organised by the Camping and Caravanning Club, the week-long celebration will see outdoor enthusiasts from across Britain celebrate all that is good about their holidaying hobby.

Its centrepiece will be a special nostalgia-themed event taking place in a Scarborough campsite on May 30. Attendees will be able to take a trip down memory lane as the campsite reverts back to the favourites of old; including Punch and Judy shows, traditional fairground games and a great deal more. Also in attendance at Scarborough will be TV presenter and president of the Camping and Caravanning Club, Julia Bradbury.

In addition to this, organisers are looking to celebrate the long and successful links between caravanning and cycling with a 420-mile, six-day journey across the country. This epic ride will see Camping and Caravanning Club members - including the club's founder, Thomas Hiram-Holding - take on the challenge wearing full, traditional tweed cycling gear.

A wider spectrum of events is set to take place around the country between May 26 and June 1.

Commenting on the week-long celebrations, director general at the club, Robert Louden MBE, told campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk: "The Year of the Bike really resonated with the club due to its ties with our founding member, Thomas Hiram-Holding.

"National Camping and Caravanning Week, which is into its 14th year, is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our heritage - and the nation's love for camping, caravanning and the great outdoors!"
