Special 40th Anniversary Display!

We will be celebrating 40 years of StonorVW in 2024 and are arranging a special lineup of 40 vehicles in addition to our usual concourse. We are aiming to get 1 vehicle from each year from 1984 to 2024 only. If would like your vehicle to be considered - it does not have to be show condition! Please email committee@abvwc.com with a description of your vehicle and include some photos. We want to get a good range of vehicles so no one model dominates the line up. The committee will review applications and allocate spaces on a first come-first served basis. Please share and invite your friends!

General Show Information

Poor mobile signal 
The show is in a country park in an area with very poor mobile phone signal due to the surrounding hills. If you are meeting with friends, it's best to agree a time and place beforehand.

Cash is king
The show is in a field - to avoid disappointment please bring cash rather than relying on card payments to our traders. There is *very* limited wifi provided by the estate, which may not work all the time.

Help needed!
The show is brought to you by a small but dedicated group of volunteers working hard to bring you the show you know and love - but we need your help to achieve this! If you'd like to help with organising the show or help on the day please email committee@abvwc.com
 

Accessibility
The show is in a field on a hill. We have plenty of visitors who use scooters, but if you use a wheelchair we would advise bringing a friend to help push. There is parking for blue badge holders by the show entrance.
