Show & Shine & Club Displays
The show & shine competition is the main feature of a VW show for many people and show & shine entry is FREE to all visitors. You can reserve a good spot when you book in advance.
We know some VW owners are rather modest about their pride and joy and may not think it is worth entering into a show & shine so our rule is simple; if its in the field its in the running.
Reserve Your Space
As demand for club display space and show & shine parking in the main display field is always high, we offer the ability to reserve yourself a priority space when you prebook your tickets.
If we have any spare display spaces left on the day, these are handed out on a first come first served basis until the display area is full.
Rarely do we have more than a handful of spaces left unallocated.
Show & Shine Priority Pass
If you are an individual exhibitor you can grab a free priority pass along with your prebooked day ticket.
If you wish to have a club display lineup in the show and shine area, please ask your club secretary / representative to contact the show organisers through our contact form to arrange specific display space. Book your tickets in the normal way and please select a show and shine pass when you make your booking to ensure space is reserved for your vehicle.

The Rules! - Don't be late
Prebooked show and shine entries can arrive on Saturday morning from 8.00am
If you're turning up on the day on the offchance of a display space you will not be allowed in until 9.00am.
All vehicles booked for the main display field MUST be in place by 10.00am
We do this for safety, by 10.00am the showgoing public are walking around the site, there's untethered children and all sorts and we really don't want to risk anyone getting run over because someone with a show car got out of bed too late.
All vehicles on the main display field MUST remain in place until 4.00pm
We announce the show and shine winners around 3.30pm on show day and we'd like you to still be there when we announce your car has won. Firstly because the show goers like to take another look round a winning car and secondly because, quite frankly, its a pain in the backside having to post a trophy to someone.
Its a 6 hour commitment, if you're just looking to turn up and show your car off for an hour or two and then go then you probably don't need to be taking up one of our display spaces.
