Lavenham Vintage Volkswagen Show - Saturday 28th June 2008

With over 100 vehicles registered from all over Europe, the 1st Lavenham Vintage Volkswagen Show in Suffolk, on Saturday 28th June, is set to make a unique mark on this summer's UK VW show calendar.

Lavenham, in the heart of rural Suffolk, is regarded as being the finest surviving example in England of a mediaeval town, with superb ancient buildings - over 300 of them listed as being of architectural and historical interest.

This show differs from most VW shows in two ways; It features only stock, un-modified pre-1967 Vintage Volkswagens, displayed in a fantastic setting - Lavenham's picturesque market square in the centre of the town. Surrounded by many timbered buildings, including the famous Guild Hall, the market square is perfect for such a display and offers a unique opportunity for a new style of vintage VW gathering, which has never been seen before in England. Additional special displays will be located in the school playground which is adjacent to the square and at Lavenham Press on Water Street.

Entrance to the show 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 several rare, early Karmann and Hebm├╝ller built Cabriolets in the UK together with many of the best early Volkswagens displayed by enthusiasts from around Europe.

A Volkswagen-only parking area for visitors (open from 9am) and a trade stand area will be located in the meadow at the bottom of Water Street, just a short walk from the square. Volkswagen clubs planning to visit the show are welcome to form line-ups in the meadow, but please try to arrive together and let the organisers know in advance if possible so they make sure you have enough space. 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. There's a smaller car park on Prentice Street also with disabled spaces.

The show is sponsored by Status VW Parts,, Volkswagen Camper & Commercial Magazine and The Split Screen Van Club.
