The 2024 Basildon Open @ Basildon RPC
May 3 – May 5 all-day

The 2024 Basildon Open

Another three days for again 2024 – however a week later than the Early May Bank Holiday weekend. Basildon put on an excellent shoot with plenty of space to camp overnight and a pretty decent BBQ for those who wish to partake – just bring a few drinks! Shops and supermarkets just down the road if you prefer and to keep ahead of the Derby mob – well tough. I think John has most definitely given up on the shower!
