VW Festival 2009 - UPDATE

Well it seems that even in the middle of a recession the VW community is still booming. We are 50% up on prebooked ticket sales from this exact point last year! and the word from other show organisers, Volksworld and Stanford Hall are no exception, that numbers are up on last year! which is great news! so keep on booking: 

As well as this the weather this year so far is glorious, the nations water table certainly seems lower than last year, at least in Hull and Leeds it is which will be a great relief to many!

Graffiti cars are almost selected, and bands are confirmed, including Druids Brew! newer, bigger and more impressive Marquee!

Also, thanks to our new sponsors.... their logos are on the website with links to their websites, but in short they are: Autotechnica, Dubtricks, Street Campers, Clean your Car, Lightening Leisure, Volksworld, VW Camper and Commercial, Ultra VW, PVW

Anyway, back to the blurb, VW Festival is in its 5th year and we are averaging 6,000 visitors each year. This year the show is effectively a one and a half day show, with entertainment (Live Music, Disco and Bar) starting at 6pm on the Saturday night for the visitors who are camping onsite. Sunday is the full show day. To see what the show is all about visit the VW Festival website.
