Campers Christmas - Vans vs Vespas!
18 November 2012
On the evening of Coventry’s Christmas Light Switch-On last year, Millennium Place in front of Coventry Transport Museum was filled with a festive light display with a difference, as the Campers Christmas event saw an array of ‘blinged’ camper vans lighting up the square to create a fabulous spectacle.
This year, Campers Christmas returns for 2012 even bigger and better, as we invite scooter owners to join in, in a ‘Vans vs. Vespas Bling-Off’!
During the afternoon of Sunday 18th November, camper vans and scooters (they don't have to be Vespas - any scooter is welcome) will begin to assemble in Millennium Place, and a range of festive entertainment will be on offer, (see below for timetable) as the vehicle owners cover their vans and scooters in Christmas lights and decorations.
When the City’s Christmas lights are switched on in the late afternoon/early evening, all of the campers and scooters will also switch on their decorative lights to form a glittering display, which is sure to spark some real festive cheer.
Camper van and scooter owners who wish to take part in the event should download and complete the booking form to reserve a place – prizes will be awarded for the best blinged van and scooter!
We are delighted to announce that Dame Nanny Knot and Muddles from the Belgrade Theatre Panto' Sleeping Beauty will be joining the fun from 4.45pm to judge the entries and to give out the prizes as well as chat to everyone.
We can also announce that during the afternoon, The Stig.....you know....The Stig will be joining in with the fun as he is a MASSIVE Camper Van fan and has one of his own. He'll be getting in the Campers and on the Scooters and having a laugh with Dame Nanny Knot and Muddles! The Stig will be with us from 3.45pm.
