Lavenham Vintage Volkswagen Show - 23rd June 2012
With over 100 vehicles registered from all over Europe, the 1st Lavenham Vintage Volkswagen Show in Suffolk, in 2008, was a huge success and plans are now under way for our second show in Lavenham which will take place on Saturday 23rd June 2012.
The Lavenham show differs from most UK VW shows in two ways; It features only stock, un-modified pre-1967 Vintage Volkswagens, displayed in a fantastic setting. Surrounded by many timbered buildings, including the famous Guild Hall, Lavenham's picturesque market square in the centre of the town is the setting for a display of the earliest vehicles. Additional displays will be located in the school playground which is adjacent to the square, at Lavenham Press on Water Street and in the meadow at the bottom of Water Street, just a short walk from the square.
Entrance to the show for spectators is free and visitors are invited to have a great day out - wandering around the vintage Volkswagens in the picturesque mediaeval town. It will be a chance to see many of the best early Volkswagens displayed by enthusiasts from around Europe.
As in 2008, trade stands will be located in the meadow at the bottom of Water Street, just a short walk from the square. We intend to retain the special Volkswagen-only parking area for visitors which proved to be a very popular part of the last show but, please note, it will be in a new, larger location - details to follow. There will be a small parking fee payable on the day.
If you're not fortunate enough to own a Volkswagen, public parking (including 2 disabled spaces) is available by the Cock Inn, opposite the church and there's a smaller car park on Prentice Street also with disabled spaces.
