The 6th annual UK Cruise to Ninove is in preparation…
We will leave Calais services early Saturday morning (10th March 2018) to enjoy a leisurely drive across Belgium stopping at Jabekke motorway services for a break and some cruise prizes. From there we drive on to the famous Witkap Brewery where we will be welcomed by the Ninove show organiser Frederic Peeters for some chilled beers.

More information about times, sponsors and offers to follow in due course…

We'll be coming for the first time this year but will be flying out as the bus is off the road.
Any recommendations of what to see and do?

If it's just the weekend you won't need anything else as both days are filled with good stuff!

Interested in this event, so what happens after the brewery arrival , and what day does everyone park in the streets. Do people stay at nearby campsites and is there a cruise back to the tunnel?

After we arrive at the brewery we stay there for the afternoon, check out the cars and building and sample their brews!
Then off to the town to pick a spot then on to the meal and party afterwards. Try to remember where you parked!
Some stay at local campsites but it's totally fine to stay on the streets.
The actual show is on the Sunday.
Everyone has different schedules so there is no official cruise back. But you won't be on your own!

Sounds good,I guess meal and times will be organised via the Facebook group, not being a party pooper but it might be worth mentioning to people that in Belgium the drink drive limit is lower than the UK and that Belgium beers are almost double in alcohol strength meaning just one beer 33cl will put you over the limit

As soon as the details are released I will post them up here, but yes, the main source of info is our Facebook page. You don't need an account to view though.
Of course, if your driving save the beer till the evening!
