The Roaming Radford’s

Joining us for all three days, the Roaming Radfords who started their YouTube travel channel just before the pandemic hit and all travel stopped but as the world reopened, they got back out on the road and have taken 30,000 subscribers as far as Albania, Florida and Morocco.

Steve Radford said:  “We have travelled extensively by motorhome since 2007, through the UK, Europe, US and more recently North Africa. We set off on each trip with only a rough destination in mind, allowing the roads we take and the places we stop to evolve as we meet new friends along the way. It’s been a non-stop adventure for us as a family and we can’t wait to share our adventures and top tips for travelling with visitors to the Great Holiday Home Show.”

Andy Torbet

Appearing on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th September, extreme adventurer, zoologist, underwater expert and stuntman, Andy uses his motorhome and caravans to fuel his adrenaline-heavy adventures and is full of tales of adventures from sea, sky and land.  Andy said “I love nothing more than exploring with my wife and kids in our motorhome and for years this is how we have holidayed.

“We were lucky enough to drive our motorhome and two caravans from the UK to the Sahara desert as part of a campaign, taking us across Portugal and Spain and through Morocco. Here we free dived, SUP, climbed and trekked in some of the least visited areas on Earth and I look forward sharing my story and meeting visitors at the Great Holiday Home Show in September!”

Karen Wright

Karen, from Wakefield, was one of 12 contestants on the Great British Bake Off in 2018 and says she loves baking while she’s away on holiday. She will be giving her top tips for baking in a caravan and demonstrating recipes from her new book ‘Meals on the Move’, and personally signed copies will be on sale at the show.

Karen said: “Anything can and does happen in caravans and motorhomes. My caravan now doubles as my prep kitchen when I work at food festivals. It’s fantastic, as I have everything I need and get all the benefits of campsite life. Fresh air, changes of scenery, companionship, solitude, we all have our own reasons why we enjoy living our dreams, and for me the list is long – I look forward to sharing my top tips at the Great Holiday Home Show next month.”

Steph Moon

Multi award winning consultant chef Steph Moon will host the cookery theatre throughout the three days of the Great Holiday Home Show.

Steph said: “I am really looking forward to this brand-new show having stayed in many holiday homes and now owning my own camper van, I am a huge fan of this lifestyle.  Cooking in a confined space has its challenges, Karen and I look forward to showing you how tasty, easy and fun this can be.”
