    Penshurst Place & Gardens, Penshurst, TN11 8DH


Once again, we find ourselves in the position of having to postpone the show. We know there is a proposed road map out of lockdown now but there were just too many “hopefully”, “probably” and “if possible”s in it. The provisional date to remove all restrictions (21st June) falls just two weeks before this year’s show. This date depends on all of the previous stages going to plan – there only needs to be one setback to delay that date and we would have to cancel right at the last minute! Seeing as we are just coming out of the 3rd lockdown, we don’t feel very confident. Volks Weald’s overheads are eye-watering and if that were to happen, the show would financially be finished for good, so we just can not take the risk. We are not a professional full time event organisation, we are just 3 people with normal 9 to 5 jobs who plan all this in the evenings and weekends. We are all just as devastated as we know you will be, but we hope you can understand. **All tickets purchased and all trade stands booked will roll over to the 2022 date – July 8th-10th** We have also just confirmed with Penshurst Place not only 2022 but 2023 and 2024, so VolksWeald is here to stay, with your help. If you have any questions please email us on Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

Volks Weald

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…


  • Show n Shine

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 11th July, Volks Weald, The Greatest Show On Turf! See you there!



  • ‘We Are The Modified’ Saturday

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 this years “Beetle Day” success we have decided to do something special for the Saturday 2021, “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.

  • 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 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 9th! See you there. Acts will be announced nearer the show.

  • Bug Beats

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!

Find Bug Beats Events here..

  • Penshurst Place & Gardens

Such a popular attraction last year is back for 2020. With your wristband, if you’re a day or weekend visitor you can view the stunning gardens of Penshurst Place for FREE and visit the house for only £2 per person, under 16’s FREE. You guys are going to be busy!

  • 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 2020 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.


  • Auto Jumble

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.

  • Dog Show

This little guys got news of something special happening at Volks Weald! On the Sunday there will be a Fun Dog Show kindly being organised by the ‘Pennard Vet Group’. There will be fun classes, entry to each class will be £2 and all money raised is being donated to a ‘Pennard’s Vet Group’ charity. We look forward to seeing your four legged friends there!

  • Quality Caterers

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.

  • Licensed Bar

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 !

  • 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’. Lots to keep the children busy.


  • Kids Colouring Competition

Always very popular and back for 2021 is the Kids Colouring Competition. Great fun and great prizes.



So don’t miss out, book your tickets now.
