Anglia and Southeast Tailgate


Recommended Posts

The 1st Anglia and South East Tailgate is now organised for set for 10th - 12th May 2019.


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 10th May until Sunday 12th 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.

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.

You only need to bring is yourself, your BBQ*, the food you plan to cook and a chair. The cooking pitch, gazebos, food prep area, chiller trailer and serving tables will all be provided. 
* 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.

Needless to say, I am  up for this, so that is 1.. I will be making my self some rice pudding! Hopefully not as stodgy as the northern tailgate,  Will not be cooking so much or roping in loads of sous chefs this time!  Famous last words, I hate to see people sitting round looking like they would want to be involved but not taking the first step,  I am always at my best when busy

not that we ever bother about the weather on these events, even the july one had smashing rain the first evening! we still had good fun.  Anyway one so far, me. You going Raptor? Obviously booking pitches earlier rather than later is good thing, we do not have exclusive access

They are all grass . Basically it’s a horse shoe shape . The bit with the picnic tables is in the middle . 

Mid may it will be quiet there . There’s a Sainsbury’s and Aldi in Sudbury 10 mins up the road . 

Butchers wise on Saturday an excellent butchers van is in the market .
