Long Marston Things to Do
Every August Long Marston Airfield is taken over for a weekend by thousands of Bikers for the Bulldog Bash, a huge festival of music and motorbikes.
There are literally thousands of motorbikes of all shapes and sizes on show, you can even race them down the drag strip on Run What You Brung.
As well as the bikes there is music from top name bands and other attractions like mud wrestling and wet t-shirt competitions.Related to:

Long Marston Nightlife
Global Gathering: Global Gathering
Once a year in July Long Marston Airfield plays host to Gods Kitchens' Global Gathering, a massive dance music event from 4pm on the Saturday evening until 7am on the Sunday morning. There are several giant marquees playing different genres of dance music with the countries best djs.
As well as the music there is a fairground with extreme rides,giant inflatables, several bars and concessions stands.
The whole event is generally well run and policed, the only problems I encountered was queues for and the cleanliness of the toilets.
Dress Code: Anything you want, in fact the more flamboyant the better. People wear the latest in clubbing wear which generally involves loads of fluroescant clothing and fur boots.Related to:

Long Marston Shopping
Barn Antiques: Out of the way Antiques Centre
This was my first visit to Barn Antiques near Strafford upon Avon. I heard about this antiques centre a number of years ago but decided to visit for a change. There are over 40 dealers who have their stalls laid out in separate areas. On display are items from the very small up to very large items of furniture that would not be out of place in a large country home. After your visit there are refreshments available in Violette’s café. Barn Antiques are open daily except Mondays and there is a large car park available.
What to buy: Furniture
What to pay: From a few pounds to a few thousand.Add to your Trip Planner

What to pay: As little as possible, as it is a market you can try and haggle the prices down to get even more of a bargain.Related to:
