Is this an all makes car event
No, it Land Rover made vehicles only. Anything from Series 1’s to the new defender is welcome including Discovery, Freelander, Range Rover and any hybrids made from such. However as this is a farmer friendly and public event we can only accept road legal type vehicles as highly modified dedicated off roaders can raise concerns to some land owners even if you do use them properly
Exactly when and where is it
It’s at the Royal Wlesh Showground Llanelwedd, Builth Wells LD2 3SY and it is open to the public on the 20th and 21st of May.
Exhibitors may arrive any time after 12 noon on the Friday and are encouraged to do so and stay for the weekend because it’s great social event and it’s a a lot easier to stay than moving your vehicle which would need to be in place before 8 am saturday and Sunday mornings and is not alowed to move offsite until after 7pm on saturday night or 5pm Sunday
