Shepton Mallet 2022

We filled up with diesel and headed for the Bath and west showground, Shepton Mallet and another Warner's show. We stopped at Fleet services in the torrential rain for a couple of pizzas.

The Warner's shows are great value as for the ticket price of around £90 you get the pitch and all facilities (except electric, that's £20 to £30 extra) and the entertainment is free.  We made camp and settled down with a beer or two.

This year we saw 70's Guitar legends, alter eagles and on Saturday night we paid £10 extra each to see Truly Collins and The Electrik live orchestra who were fantastic.

Of course, Andy sent the drone up for crafty look around...our pitch is in the small trees on the left.

We tried a bike ride to Shepton Mallett town to try to get some 'Stinking Bishop' cheese, but the road was too busy and dangerous, so we locked them up against a fence and jumped on the shuttle bus, £4 each open return! Unfortunately, all of the cheese shops were shut as the proprietors had gone to a cheese festival in Frome, the next town, so we had a pint in 'The Swan' and watched a couple of drunks stumble home into the distance. There is always something to entertain you if you know where to look!

Another great weekend of music and we found the company which were selling the electric bikes that we were interested in buying and we had a test ride and decided that we would buy them. We arranged to meet the company at the next show in Lincoln and buy them there.
