A must see event for Land Rover and Vintage Car enthusiasts!

After the success of the previous events, we are proud to announce that the leafers show is now a regular feature at the National Coalmining Museum at Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

This years event will be held on the weekend of Friday 25th August to Monday 28th August, with camping for exhibitors only available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Booking is essential for camping.

The event includes vehicle line-ups, where visitors can view other Leafers and speak to other Land Rover lovers as well as visit traders and autojumblers ( where they might be able to pick up spare parts etc).

All models of leaf-sprung Land Rovers are welcome series 1, 2, 2a, 2b, 3 and 101, stage 1 V8s etc.

How much does it cost to stay?

Vehicle and occupants ................TBC per day (All 3 days TBC)
Camping spot ............................ TBC per night
Autojumble pitch ........................TBC per day (Camping spot included)

In 2015 money raised from the event was £1678.80 for the National Coal Mining Museum for England.

Visitors interested in the event can simply turn up on the day in a leaf-sprung Land Rover and pay at the gate to show their vehicle.

Where's the money going?

Proceeds from this event are going to the National Coalmining Museum charity.

Camping space is limited and places must be booked in advance as we cannot guarantee a place for anyone who turns up not having booked. To book a camping place please fill in the Camping Form and provide your name, address and the model and reg. number of your motor(s) that you will be showing. You will be given a camping number by return email to confirm your booking. Entry fee includes access to the NCM museum.

Please note that all vehicles must be road-legal, insured & taxed, unless by arrangement. Only leaf-sprung Land Rovers are eligible for showing. All show vehicles must be driven to the site - no trailer queens!

Leafers at t'pit is organised by members of the Seriously Series Land Rover Forum forum.

We hope to see you there!
