I went for the first time a few weeks ago - tis great fun!

I had a stove like this which for me was fine, it take gas cannisters

a table like this for putting it on OUTSIDE (don't cook in the tent)

and you could get chairs like this

I took all the food in a plastic crate and used pans from home.

Also bought multipacks of disposable BBQ's which were on offer at the time. to do evening meal food on.

Bought a cheapo picnic set from sainsbugs (everything reduced this time of year)

Will you have electric hook up? we didn't so to keep things cold I had a hard sided cool box with 2 frozen water of 2 litre old coke bottles which lasted more than 2 days.

I got alot of info from this thread

have fun! - hope the weather is kind to you
