Come and see for yourself why the Stanford Hall Volkswagen show has been described by many visitors as “The VW Show of the Year”.
“Hats off to the organisers – great venue, great vibe, and a great mix of vehicles, trade stands, food retailers, and clean loos too, all for a very reasonable entrance fee. We had a great day! Other show organisers could learn a thing or two from you all, but in some ways I hope they don’t as it will keep Stanford a cut above the rest. Many thanks to all the back room volunteers and organisers without whom the show wouldn’t be what it was.”
The event is a ‘pay on the day’ event, no pre-booking is available. £12.00 per adult and children 15 and over. Children (aged up to and including 14) enter free. Please note this does not cover admission to the house.
You do not need to pay for entry for children aged up to and including 14 years old.
Dogs are allowed, but MUST be kept on a lead and under control at all times.
There is disabled parking available on-site, however, you are advised that as the show is set in the grounds of a country house, there is very little hard surfacing.
There are a number of catering stands on site ranging from doughnuts and burgers through to traditional fish and chips and speciality coffee. Alternatively you could try a leisurely visit to the Hall’s own tea rooms, conveniently located in the courtyard.
There will be a live band playing on Saturday evening in a special marquee area, near the Concours d’Elegance display. There is also a children’s funfair on Sunday.
