Stobart Fest 2 to be held at Carlisle Airport

Stobart spotters are set to descend once again on Carlisle Airport.

Last year’s first-time appearance of Stobart Fest at the airport proved so successful – attracting about 16,000 people – that organisers have decided it will return.

Stobart Fest will be held on August 9-10 and give fans another chance to meet their favourite drivers, many of whom have become household names after appearing on Stobart’s behind-the-scenes show on Channel 5.

The last series of Stobart: Trucks, Trains & Planes was screened in November and December.

Arrangements for the weekend have yet to be finalised but those behind the event say Stobart Fest 2014 will follow the same concept as last year.

Visitors will be able to see, for free, an array of vehicles in the fleet, meet some of those who work for the logistics giant and learn more about the work of Stobart across the country.

To go, people need to register online, more details of which will be made available in the coming months.

A Stobart spokesman said: “We’re planning a very similar event to last year over the weekend of August 9 and 10. Last year was such a success we’ve decided to bring it back.”

The Eddie Stobart Promotions team has already informed spotters - members of the fan club - of the news.
