Anglia and Southeast Tailgate


Recommended Posts

The 2nd Anglia and South East Tailgate is now organised for set for 8th - 10th May 2020

Event is being held at Willowmere Caravan Park

Willowmere is situated on the B1508, Sudbury to Bures road.

Approx. 2.3 miles from the centre of Sudbury Suffolk.

Bures Road, Little Cornard, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 0NN

The site is beautiful and well organised.  Raptor and I can vouch for that.  Suitable for Camper vans and tents, no pods.  Willowmere has an excellent toilet and show block, fresh water tap, and washing up facilities all included.  Not a massive site but all the better for it.



There are apparently some small pod sites nearby and inns for B&B in Sudbury if you do not want to camp on site, no problem. The village centre is a 43-minute walk away (or 8 minutes in a car), and is well served by local shops including a grocer, baker, butcher, post office and a Co-op store and well as three pubs, several restaurants and tearooms.

The weekend runs from the afternoon of Friday 8th May until Sunday 10th May with the main feast being cooked and served on the Saturday afternoon. For accommodation you have the choice of booking a camping or caravan/motorhome.

To book message @Justin with your requirements per the list below and I will make sure you are booked in.

Prices below are current but I will confirm  them, they are unlikely to change or if they do only a little bit i imagine


Car, Caravan & 2 People = £18.00

Car, Tent & 2 People = £18.00

Moterhome & 2 People = £18.00

Electric hook-up = £4.00

Extra person (Over 10) = £3.00

Awnings, Dogs = Free

Prices from the 1st January 2019.


You only need to bring is yourself, your BBQ*, the food you plan to cook and a chair and some where to sleep tent, bivvy, motor home etc. or indeed a local B&B booking (Wade and Joy!). The cooking pitch, gazebos, food prep area, possibly a chiller trailer and serving tables will all be provided. The Anglia and South East tailgate is a friendly affair and is a non-competitive event for the whole family where you can come along and enjoy cooking for an appreciative crowd. If you are new to BBQ cooking and are looking to gain experience and confidence then you will be amongst friends who can help and guide you. If you are a seasoned smoker then come along and show us what you can cook whilst encouraging others to progress along their own BBQ journey. This is a family event so non-BBQ family and friends are all welcome.


* a limited number of shared BBQ/Smokers may be available for use on the day but will be on a first come basis.

We will not have exclusive use so we will be inviting other campers to join in, chat and get interested.

Post is you would like to come.   I will see if I can get a discount on the pricing spending based on number of attendees

It’s just a waiting game now.

Was supposed to be going to the Midland Tailgate venue this weekend to have a look round and get an idea of setup. But we have postponed the visit.

We are also hoping it will go ahead, but we will have to wait and see.

One thing to come out of this dreadful situation, is time to practice at home for the events :th_INGardenbbq7:

Not looking brilliant at the moment, but things can change and no decision needs to be made yet as no cash commitment needed yet. National different for me as I have booked a hotel and paid for it. but think I can cancel with enough notification, if necessary?
