Organisers of the VW Festival say they’re already on track to beat last year’s 21,000 visitors as fans from across the UK and Europe buy up tickets for this year’s event at Harewood House, Leeds
The popular annual event attracts a very diverse crowd, from VW fanatics to music lovers to families who come every year to take in the familiar sights and sounds of what’s now regarded as the go to summer event. This year will see it run from 11-13 August.
Visitors to this hugely popular family friendly event can look forward to vehicle displays, trade and market stands, live music and entertainment and there are even more food stalls than ever before.
The 2017 entertainment zone has its popular animal petting area as furry fans are always drawn to its dog displays, and for those wanting to get creative there’s live graffiti, vehicle displays and chainsaw carving demos.
With this year’s theme of ‘movies’, visitors are in for a treat with news that there’s a fantastic cinema style tent with car-related movies being shown throughout the entire weekend.
VW Festival’s annual charity raffle this year has a top prize of a beautifully restored 1966 Beetle, brought back to life by Slambassador. By buying £3 raffle tickets you will be supporting this year’s fantastic charity, Cash4Kids. Last year’s total mirrored the number of visitors with £21,000 raised.
