Getting HerePenshurst Place & Gardens, Penshurst, TN11 8DH
V Works in association with Under the Arches and Air-Style VW Magazine, we are delighted to announce the return of Volks Weald for 2022.
From noon on the 8th until 5pm on the 10th July Volks Weald 2022, now in it's fourth year, 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 go back to the real basics of a VW show. Great times, great people & great cars! You are guaranteed to have a ball!
Below is some amazing feedback we have received from our show in 2019.
"What an amazing weekend. I cannot thank you the staff enough for all their 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, have not stop smiling since I got home. I thought last year was good, but this was taken to another level this year. Such an amazing, chilled out atmosphere all weekend. Thanks again, already looking forward to 2020". Steve Lane
"This was the first time we have been to your show. What a lovely time we had. Finally found a show with the Peppercorn feeling. Well done to all the crew and thank you for looking after us all. See you next year". Diane Jones
The stage is set to bring you and your family an entertaining and enjoyable weekend in the stunning grounds of Penshurst Place. We want you to sit back, enjoy the beautiful scenery, listen to some great music, taste some great food, have fun with the kids and of course enjoy the stars of the show, The VW’s. Some of the many attractions over the weekend include…
The Show N Shine is the highlight for any car show and 2019 for Volks Weald did not disappoint with over 150 jaw dropping vehicles on display. The show field on the Sunday was heaving with amazing air cooled VW’s, some super cool water cooled as well as many other makes including Hot Rods & Vespa’s. It’s FREE to enter, just shine them up, park them up and show them off! So there is only one place to be on Sunday 10th July, Volks Weald, The Greatest Show On Turf! See you there!
We’ve always prided ourselves as a no gimmicks show and always let the quality of the venue, trades, music and of course, most importantly, show cars speak for us. We have also never seen the need for a theme but after the 2019 “Beetle Day” success we have decided to do something special for the Saturday 2022, “We Are The Modified”
With a little play on the word “Mod” we are looking to invite as many VWs not built by VW. So Buggies, trikes, Baja’s, 365 replicas amongst many other VW based kit cars including coach built campers of all shapes and sizes. We would also like to send out an invitation to the classic scooters to come park up with us.
We already have some “Mod” genre music for the Saturday in the planning as well as other “Mod” style treats to tie it all together.
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 over the coming months. 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 8th! See you there.
After the overwhelming feedback last year, Bug Beats will be back doing a full Friday night set. Neil is going to take the roof off again! Can’t wait for this, awesome set up and a top DJ, its going to be a night to remember!

Happy Accident are a four piece rock/indie covers band based in the midlands. Happy Accident are all accomplished musicians, playing together for many years. They love to create a party atmosphere and welcome crowd interaction. Performing an upbeat and energetic set; getting everyone up, dancing and having fun is what they are all about. Saturday night is going to be amazing!

Really pleased to have another favourite back at Volks Weald ’22, Lucy Forder. Lucy will be playing a stunning set showcasing her vocal talents on Sunday and is not to be missed.
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 2022 is shaping up to be even bigger & better with many traders already booked in after their successful trading in 2019. 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.
We are now booking auto jumble for ‘Volks Weald’ so if you have a garage full of VW bits n bobs, dig them out and make some cash! Best bit, it’s FREE! Please let us know if you’re interested via the usual avenues, message, comment, email or find us at a show. We would love to have a huge showing of auto jumble, just like it used to be. Thank you.
This little guys got news of something special happening at Volks Weald! On the Saturday there will be a Fun Dog Show kindly being organised by the ‘Pennard Vet Group’. There will be fun classes, entry to each class and all money raised is being donated to a ‘Pennard’s Vet Group’ charity. We look forward to seeing your four legged friends there!
We have some mouth watering caterers lined up for you at the show in 2021 to keep you fed and watered from fish n chips to pizzas or just a great cup of coffee, we have it covered.
One of the many talking points of the show in past years is 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 !
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 2019.
