Wilma's 40th Birthday Tour of Blackpool Illuminations, 26-28 October 2012

Discussion in 'Shows Events You've Missed unless you went' started by 72wilma, Aug 24, 2012.

  1. Come celebrate Wilma's 40th with us from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th October 2012

    If you do nothing else in your life, you have to drive through Blackpool illuminations with your van done up in lights. It's the law :)

    Plus it's Wilma's 40th birthday on 1st November and knowing what a classy bird she is, she's decided to celebrate in Blackpool ;D

    We're thinking... camping over if you want to, or travelling up for the day, possibility of pleasure beach if you like the feel of your stomach hitting your tonsils http://www.blackpoolpleasurebeach.com/home/

    and of course... a rundfahrt through the illuminations on saturday night followed by fish n chips on the prom and a Birthday/Hallowe'en party back at the campsite
    Blackpool illuminations - Including promenade drive thru.

    Anyone up for this? Please fill in the poll, then we can work out the campsite .

    you mean you're going to dress wilma in lights too?? coz molly has some blue solar lights and white 1's so we are loving this idea!! :) haha

    aww 40 years old...that's amazing! :) x
  7. We would like to attend (if we are allowed, in our gaudy van wot is not actually any sort of VW :- ) but not for camping and not for the pleasure beach LOL. We would like to trundle through the illuminations and stand out like a sore thumb amongst the pretty vehicles.
  8. Count us in although not sure what time we'll get there as we're that there London on the Friday night for a gig at the Albert Hall

    Saying yes to Saturday only camping but not sure at the moment how we are going to get away from work in time. Will do if we can though - have to confirm nearer the time :thinking:
  14. :mwave:

    Yey! looks like we'll have a great time. VW's are not compulsory...anything goes, including your vehicle Mrs DnD ;) ;)

    Oh and you don't have to know us to join in... we'd love to meet some of you new folks :) Can't wait to meet you Tiny-Pie and z4alfie :)

    If it's gonna be cheaper on the fuel then come in your car, and if you want to camp we can lend you all the camping stuff (tent, beds cooker etc ) including little electric radiator to keep you warm :)

    Whoo hoo :)
  15. funny that as Mrs.Doris said it would be good to take the kids this year....never been!.we'll come up but not sure which day exactly.

    when you say camping...you got a site in mind? :)
  16. :) great Doris...I'm sure Blackpool won't disappoint ;)

    We have a few campsites book marked...all hardstanding with electrics and a couple of miles out of the centre. can you recommend any?
  19. very soon (in the next week possibly) we'll need to have definite numbers for camping as the lights finish the week after and there's a chance that camp site may book up quickly, I assume everyone will want hook up?
