Volks Weald 12th to 14th July 2019 At Penshurst Place & Gardens

V Works in association with Under the Arches are delighted to announce the return of Volks Weald for 2019.

From noon on the 12th until 5pm on the 14th of July Volks Weald 2019 will be held again at the stunning Penshurst Place in Kent – a privately owned, historic house of medieval origin. Located in the charming village of Penshurst amongst glorious countryside in the centre of the Weald of Kent. With a history spanning seven centuries Penshurst Place has been the setting for many sumptuous events – Kings, Queens, Noblemen & great poets have dined there since 1341... The VW community, friends and the public will come together for an old skool weekender & car show in 62 acres of beautiful parkland. The event is aimed at families & clubs and is set up so they can enjoy a great two night camping experience with a superb entertainment programme, trade village and catering avenue. Importantly, we want to go back to the real basics of a VW show and everyone with any sort of vehicle is welcome to join us – great times, great people & great cars!

Below is some amazing feedback we have received from our show in 2018.

"What an amazing weekend. I can't thank you the staff enough for all there hard work. All were so friendly and helpful. What a smooth and fun show. Nothing to moan about. Simply excellent. Thank you guys." Vivien Tennyson

"Wow! Wow! Wow! What an event. Just wanted to stop by and say thank you to everyone involved in making this event such an amazing weekend, haven’t stop smiling since I got home.

Year Of The Beetle

2019 is a very special year….as you may have heard in the news VW have decided to drop the iconic Beetle from their production line.

Some say the “iconic” Beetle finished in 2003 when they stopped building the classic design but a Beetle is a Beetle and the name has lived on in the new modern shape and is adored world wide in all its various forms.

On Saturday 13th July 2019 we are going to have a very special show n shine just for Beetles, all years, all shapes as a celebration of this amazing piece of history.

** Please note the Sunday show n shine will be for all vehicles as normal **


Live Music

We have some amazing bands and musicians lined up to keep you entertained over the weekend. A full timetable of the acts will be announced nearer the show. If you love your music as much as you love your VW’s, there is only one place to be over the weekend of July 12th 2019! See you there..

  • Trade Village

The trade village this year was amazing ( so say our visitors ) with over 50 trade stalls selling all sorts of goods. It had a real artisan feel about it and 2019 is shaping up to be even bigger & better with many traders already booked in after their successful trading in 2018. So if your a visitor start saving up your pennies and if your a trader looking to book in for the Greatest Show On Turf, head on over to our trade page and get booked in to avoid missing out on a pitch.

  • Licensed Bar

One of the many talking points of the show in 2018 was the inflatable pub and we are happy to tell you it will be returning. How could we not! So look forward to a nice cool beer or maybe a G & T at the ‘Inflatable Tavern’. Who’s round is it !

  • Adventure Playground & Maize Maze

All visitors to the show over the weekend will be able to take their little ones and slightly bigger ones, FREE OF CHARGE, to the amazing Penshurst Place Adventure Playground. It was a real hit with the children in 2018. You also have FREE entry to the awesome Penshurst ‘Mazie Maze’ which opens its gates on the Saturday of the show. Lots to keep the children busy.
