Not a festival that I have heard of before but, reading up on it, it sounds great. Not your traditional music festival but a wonderful VW festival. Wow! A VW festival, I am sold. The iconic hippy vehicles. Love it!
Set in the stunning location of Alnwick Castle in the wonderful Northumberland, this festival looks set to provide an amazing weekend for all of the family, jam packed with VW’s galore from vintage camper vans, beetles and oh so much more.
As well as the iconic VW’s, the weekend will be chocka with entertainment.
There really is so much fun to be had by all of the family with so many things to do. Fancy trying your hand at some break dancing, well, you can at one of the workshops available. There is even a dog show to be seen and perhaps participate in…..
There is even an outdoor screening of Grease on Saturday so make sure that you get your popcorn and dress up 🙂
With varying street food stalls, craft stalls and trade stands they really have got you covered for something tummy to eat and a little spot of shopping. There are even 3 licensed bars for you to enjoy.
Now, even thought this is a festival all about VW, they do have 11 brilliant bands playing for you across the weekend. I mean, what is a festival without some music right..
Friday – King for a Day, Big red and the Grinners & The Purest Green
Saturday – Friday Street, The Pretty Weeds, Hope Newton’s Innocent, We Steal Flyers, Alnwicky, Clippah & Jinski
Sunday – Rooster’s Cat & Tom Dibb
As well as the bands, there really is some great entertainment and good times to be had.
Friday will see the Breakdancers performance and workshop – have fun!
Saturday will see Lee Musselwhite and his BMX performing for you.
Sunday has a beginners Ukulele workshop and also the dog show.
What’s not to like about this little festival.
There will be so many VW’s on show for you to look at. Choose your favourite in the polls and then stick around to see who the winner is.
If you have a VW that you want to enter and show on the day then you can even gain free entry to the festival.
Before you disappear of to the festival to have the best time – make sure that you have packed your festival survival gear. Not sure what this is well, every festival goes should have the following with them to every festival that they attend;
- Acrylic Blanket – so soft and snugggly it can be used for so many things. First and foremost a blanket of course which is large enough to share with a friend. Need something to sit on then our blankets are perfect.
- Bold festival clothing – you are after all going to a VW festival which were a firm fav with the hippy’s!
Just remember that the weather can get pretty toasty at this time of year so please, make sure take plenty of water with you and that you wear plenty of protection..
Have fun and stay safe you lovely lot..
