Closely followed by the new Spring Adventure Overland in April and the return of the Billing Off Road Show for its second year at the end of June. There is also the Kelmarsh and Peterborough shows, and a lot more besides, all of which will be covered in our events calendar, with links to the ticket sales and times and dates, we will keep you up to date with all the latest information on all the off road shows.

A real 4×4 show in the weatherproof comfort of an exhibition centre.
If you are building, preparing, modifying or maintaining your 4×4 for motorsport, overlanding, greenlaning or just playing then this is the Show for you !
In 2002 the people who organise the Donington 4×4 Show started up the British Indoor 4×4 Show. They ran this show for 4 or 5 years before the then publishers of Total OffRoad magazine bought the rights to the show from them.
Unfortunately whilst under the new ownership / management the show declined until in 2012 it was staged for the last time. This left a gap in the market for a ‘true 4×4’ show so David & team started again at Donington.
Using the original concept and with the same aims of a show that the public can enjoy and the trade can earn a living at the Donington 4×4 Show was born and ran for the first time in 2013.
The same format from all those years ago still works today for the trade and public alike – no hype, no frills just a great show where anything you might want to buy for your 4×4 is available from the wide selection of trade there. The Show has a real emphasis on people who actually ‘use their 4x4s’ rather than just the lifestyle…
2018 An exciting, new chapter begins…
With no guarantee that Donington will even be available to hire as a venue from now on and the fact that we have sort of ‘outgrown the building’ the decision was made to find a new home for the event.
Bingley Hall at the Staffordshire County Showground, ST18 0BD provides the perfect new home:
Just as easy to access in a central location. Far bigger main hall with additional hall space for us to grow into without having to move again.
The first 4×4 Show of the year makes February the start of Show season – roll on the 2018 Show!
