Would there be enough charging stations on route from Harwich to Silverstone ?
You'll need to check the various charging maps/apps and make a decision for yourself... I rarely travel long distance by EV in the UK because I find the wait and reliability of 'rapid' charging unacceptable.

From the show FAQ;

"Can I charge my car at Silverstone?"

"NO. A significant percentage of Fully Charged Show fans have plug-in electric vehicles, so it is likely that with thousands of visitors expected at Fully Charged LIVE, that there will be hundreds if not thousands of electric vehicles on-site. In all likelihood this will make it the biggest ever convening of electric vehicles at a venue in the UK. There are few, if any venues in the UK that could cope with that level of power demand and as such we recommend that visitors make alternative charging arrangements en route. Naturally, we will be communicating options in advance of Fully Charged LIVE to make the show as accessible as is possible."

Motoring Research - Silverstone prepares for Britain鈥檚 biggest-ever EV show

"There will be a number of live sessions, presented by Llewellyn and fellow TV colleagues Jonny Smith (Fifth Gear) and Helen Czerski (From Ice to Fire). The idea is to educate visitors about the electric car scene, with sessions including 鈥榠ntroduction to owning an electric vehicle鈥 and 鈥榞enerating your own heat and power at home鈥."

I'm still considering making the trip with my Think...
Not sure about the recharge possibilities though somewhere halfway Harwich - Silverstone.
I hope you can make it... just think carefully about the ability of the UK network to charge *lots* of EVs at the same time :)
