The legend of Stanford Hall

Whilst researching the VW scene last year, I lost count of the times that Stanford Hall was given rave reviews. So when Sunday 1st of May came around, by hell or high water, I was gonna make it!

If I have one regret for this years show season...... it would be the fact that we made it to Stanford for the Sunday only. The sight as we entered the car park quite frankly took my breath away! The car park alone was lined with VW's as far as the eye could see...... and we had not even got in through the gate.

Considering the low ticket price, I have to say that this show was the best of the season so far. Row upon row of supplier's, auto jumble and cafes lined the entrance. There was certainly no shortage of things to do and see. The aircooledfools team will certainly be camping at this one for next year!

If Splitty's are your thing.... don't miss Stanford Hall. The split screen owner's club showed up in force. I have never seen so many in the same place at the same time!

The show attracts some of the very best VW's in the country, with the concours D'elegance class. This is also one of the best shows to head for if you are looking to buy a VW.

Stanford Hall is a one day show, on the Sunday. However, they are now offering overnight camping on the Saturday, pre booking only. In our opinion, it is one of the very best shows here in the UK. Don't miss it!
