Welcome to the official website of the North West Region of the Camping and Caravanning Club.
NFOL 2018 23rd to 27th August, Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire.
North West Region hosted the 2018 National Feast of Lanterns over the August Bank Holiday Weekend. 1055 units were booked in for this Annual Premier event last held in the North West some 12 years ago at Tabley Show Ground.
The Clubs biggest event of the year, was enjoyed by all that attended, no matter the age, there was something for everyone, from sandpits to a Cave bus, from The Houghton Weavers to a Rock Band. The Swift marquee was a 2000 seater and some nights it was packed! The Fabulous Camping & Caravanning Club Band filled both the Bar and Swift Marquees when they performed!!
There were over 60 trade stands selling wares from gas to wooden plaques, Swift and Adria had over £1 million of new caravans and motorhomes on display.
The Mardi Gras was well supported and great fun! With the Theme for the meet being “Science Fiction” the fancy dress was amazing! We had everything, Men in Black, Star Trek and Star Wars! The winners were:-

The Cadac Campsite Cook of the Year was also presented at the same time, 5 cooks took part on Saturday afternoon, all regional winners, it was a hotly contested cook off! Eventually the winner was crowned – Phil Henson with his Whisky and Stilton Burger!!
There were 57 entries in the Dog Show! Each contributed towards the Chairman’s Charity, The Alzheimer’s Trust, and more than £1500 was raised over the weekend, a magnificent effort!!
