VW Action 2018


Friday 31st August - Sunday 2nd September 2018
Santa Pod Raceway, Wellingborough, Northants. NN29 7XA

VW Action is the longest running weekend VW Show in the world - now in its 42nd year!!! The show has in one form or another been the true 'Jewel in the Crown' of UK VW events, from its early days at Stoneleigh, the NAS Stoneleigh shows, the period of its residency at Peterborough, at Herts County Showground, and now at Santa Pod. The last decade at 'The Pod' have produced quite exceptional shows, and 2017's event continued to raise the bar.

The 'Masquerade Ball' theme, complete with its 'West End' big budget stage set that transformed the marquee into a cross between 'Strictly Come Dancing' and a slightly twisted 'Viennese Palace' was embraced by all and the show received acclaim from all who attended.

2018 will continue the great tradition of VW Action delivering the absolute best event for the true VW enthusiast. VW Action is a show to which people are happy to bring their young family members, and yet which provides full on entertainment for all of its visitors, whatever their age or interests.

2018 will see a 'Life On Mars' theme - with Saturday evening's stage dressed as a Martian landscape. The fancy dress possibilities for this year are as multi-faceted as the late, great David Bowie himself.

One avenue could be 'Alien Life Forms', 'Spacemen', 'Martians', 'War Of The Worlds' etc., while another lends itself to follow the two hugely successful TV series 'Life On Mars' and 'Ashes To Ashes' with visitors possibly following the 70s 'TV Cops' look, - 'The Sweeney', 'Minder', 'The Professionals' or anything that represents those great 70s and early 80s 'TV Cop Shows' that featured all those wonderful car chases - or, visitors could even come as 'Bowie' himself, following that whole 70s 'Glam' look
