Each year, day trippers turn into full-blown weekenders. To confirm, yes - hot showers are onsite but if you prefer your accommodation a little more luxurious (even though you won't get the full experience), there's a good selection of local hostelries from Travelodge upwards..

Jay will be 1 year and 1 day old as Curbs 2013 is officially opened, fingers crossed he loves it as attendance is pretty mandatory for a Greenly/Unwin baby ;)

you're welcome - Curbs doesn't happen without helpers and marshalls are particularly scarce.

I shall be 69 on the first day of Curborough and, I'm ashamed to say, have also never been! If I haven't sold my coupe, I might just get up there next year.
