The Caravan Show NEC and meeting Barney Harwood

I was lucky enough to get to film a promo video for the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC in Birmingham this February.

Myself and ten other children got to try out the attractions, discovery areas and demonstrations before anybody else. It was so cool!


We had to be there super early when the NEC was empty of visitors which was actually really great- there weren’t a lot of people or a lot of noise!

I was super pleased to help film the promo video because i love Caravans. Like my Mummy, i’m a connoisseur of caravans! I really love them, i always look forward to seeing the new styles at the beginning of the year so i was thrilled to get a real first hand look.

My favourite holiday home at the show was the Mulberry Lodge- it was stunning!

See the promo video below:

Not only did i get to film a video to promote the show, go an all the cool attractions before anyone else and have a total blast roaming the NEC, i also got to meet Barney Harwood!


That’s right. The man, the legend. Barney Harwood.

Obviously if you’ve followed my Blog or my Twitter you’ll know that i appeared on Blue Peter in 2015 after reading 365 books in 10 months aged just 5 years old. Back then Lindsey Russell came to Coventry to interview me. Last year i got to meet Radzi Chingyanganya- nicest guy ever! But meeting Barney, wow, i mean wow!! He’s basically the face of kids TV, my Mummy used to watch him, my Uncles used to watch him and now i watch him!

From Blue Peter to Bear Behaving Badly to Totally Doctor Who, Barney has been the face of CBBC for ages! It was a dream come true to meet him. 🙂


Best of all though is that Barney knew who i was! He KNEW me! I have never felt so star stuck and completely at ease with someone as i did meeting Barney.

He came into the room full of smiles, making sure to say hello to everyone and when he spotted me he said across the room “Hello Megan!”- A-MAZE-ING! He even took a selfie of us to send to Radzi!! If i could have been melting on the floor for excitement i would have been.

He came and chatted to us for ages before and after filming the promo, he was so nice to talk to and he really made sure to learn everyone’s names, talk to them the whole time and find out who they were. He was so awesome!

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
