Live music is the main reason that we go to big events like this so if the entertainment doesn't appeal there's no reason for us to go. 

It does look good. I wish I'd gone as a day visitor a few years ago but I thought the pricing was a bit strong

Just to makes sure the right message is getting out there about EHU.

in the past The National has provided both EHU pitches and Non EHU pitches, but over the years more and more people have been booking EHU pitches which has made it more difficult to lay out the EHU pitches and then try to fit very few Non EHU pitches in amoungst the others.

it was decided that Sandringham 2017 would be all EHU pitches. There will be no Non EHU pitches at the 2017 National.

Hope that clears up any confusion. Bookings go live on 31st October 2016. Demand is expected to be high, so you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Don't think we'll bother, just our luck to be near one of the huge generators. Sad

Write your comments here...I must admit the 6 amp output is a little restrictive but we thoroughly enjoyed it at Weston Park and we're looking forward to Sandringham particularly as we have never yet visited the Norfolk Broads.

Write your comments here...So this is why when I went to complete the advance booking form online it only showed electrical hook up pitches at a cost of  £95.00 .Was due to contact the Club Monday as I could not find non electric pitches.

Not sure, if this is correct, that I want to pay extra so something I do not really need.

Add in a couple of evening entertainments make this a very expensive 5 days.

Wow how much? We have solar power, as do lots of folks these days. Want to go if its possible but like Frozzie not sure I want to pay for something I don't really want. Is it a retro step these days??

That's how I feel too, lots of people near us last year were off ehu, we're quite happy with our solar panel. A retrograde, expensive step, leaning towards vans produced by the industry requiring too much power. It now sounds very expensive with all the other costs thrown in.

We would have difficulty managing without electric. Our mobile devices all charge on electric, the aircon needs electric too and so does the microwave.

I agree with you that it sounds expensive. We paid £95 for two at a festival last year. All activities and entertainment included in the price and the organisers don't have the sponsorship that the CC does. 

The acts will have cost considerably more too. 

Havjng said that the National sells out every year and everyone seems to enjoy it so it looks like the CC is meeting demand from those that go
