Part 1

It was only our second time driving out to the Flanders area of Belgium for the FreddyFiles show but we had the opportunity to organise the UK cruise with our very good friend Jon Hancock from 65 Deluxe. We kept it simple by arranging some meeting places on route to the show where people could find us.

The first stop was in Folkstone, Kent. The friday night stop-over near the Channel Tunnel. An early start on the Saturday allowed everyone to meet at the tunnel and board the train to Calais. Thats where the fun begins!

Meeting at the Bonjour Services at the Chunnel terminal in the fog we made sure everyone was present, (some people had already got lost in the fog), and set off for Jabbeke Services near Bruges. Here we met the Classic Volks Northern Cruise which had arrived from the ferry in Zebrugge from Hull.

From here we cruised to Ninove and met up again at the Slagmuylder Brewery to begin our weekend in Ninove for FreddyFiles 2016.

To find more about the show then keep an eye out this week for the 2nd part of this post. We’ll showcase the best from the brewery and from the main event on Sunday when The Happy Camper Edition of FreddyFiles took place!
