Ross and Dave maybe best to explain the plans

But I'm sure we can fit you in! ;)

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......

Dean,
Kelling Heath is now very much oversubscribed on the popular days ie the Friday and Saturday nights (10th and 11th). What we have had to do is book to arrive Sunday 12th and leave Wednesday. The down side is you miss the Saturday trade stands. For these dates there should be plently of pitches left. We have booked in the Red field - somewhere around poitch 315 - Brian has the booking details and which 3 pitches we have. There should be one available nearby. The cost is £12 per pitch per night including electricity.
David

The event runs from the 6th to the 17th, but the main trade fair is on Saturday 11-Sep, and that weekend is when the main fields (Red and Yellow) are fully booked up a year in advance!

But Carl and I will be heading down on Friday 10th, and staying in the Blue field for the Friday and Saturday nights.
Then on the Sunday we'll be decamping to the Red field, where Dave and the others have managed to book some pitches up to the Wednesday.

Note that the Blue field is not ideal for observing (as it has trees around, and no "lights out" policy) but it is conveniently near the sports field where the view is much better (but there's no parking or mains power).
Nonetheless, we stayed there last year and found that it worked quite well: we had a wander around the site on the Friday night, and blagged a look through other people's 'scopes in the Yellow and Red fields ;-).
