Happy campers! Three celebs make personal appearances at Motorhome & Caravan Show

Between 17-22 October, outdoor enthusiasts flocked to the NEC in Birmingham for the UK’s biggest leisure vehicle show. The Motorhome & Caravan Show offers the exclusive opportunity to discover the country’s largest collection of campervans, motorhomes, caravans, trailer tents and accessories.

Each day of the six-day event saw a packed programme of events where adventurers, bloggers and some familiar faces offered inspiration on how to make the most of time spent outdoors. This is where our work with the event came in. We secured three celebrities to form part of the programme each giving live talks and Q&As to audiences.

Adventurer, documentary filmmaker and author Simon Reeve kicked things off opening the show with a live Q&A, during which he shared his most memorable moments from filming across the world, including his recent trip to South America. Known best for his vast number of travel-based television shows, such as Australia with Simon Reeve and The Balkans, it’s no surprise that he’s ticked more than 120 countries off his list.

With a love for adventure and a passion for inspiring others to go out there and seek it for themselves, Simon was a fantastic and inspirational speaker for this kind of event.

When Thursday rolled around, it was Toyah Wilcox’s turn to take to the stage. The musician and actress started off the day’s programme of talks by fondly reminiscing on her childhood where she’d spent much time in the great outdoors. She shared anecdotes that included wild swimming and boating with her family in the 1960s and revealed the story of hiding in a caravan from paparazzi during her honeymoon.

Toyah brought a fun, high-spirited energy to the event and her willingness to share so much of her personal experiences with the outdoors made for a memorable Q&A session.

Finally, television personality and face of the Postcode Lottery, Jeff Brazier helped bring the event to a close on the final day. As a new owner of a campervan, he brought fresh perspective to his talk, discussing the reasoning behind his purchase and the places he plans to explore in it.

Yet another great example of the power of celebrity!
