is there any club discount for sandown show march 2024
 
Just to clarify. Volksworld contacted me to ask if we wanted a spot but I have declined this year as the turnout the past few years has been depleted to the point that getting five vans each day has been not possible. Knowing that a few regulars wouldn't be able to make this year, and unsure myself, I took the decision to have a year off the display.
We will see how the show goes this year and then hopefully return in '25, if enough folk are up for it.

(I see the VWT Transporter Festival has been cancelled, and the tickets transferred to the Volksworld Show now.)

Shame, but makes sense. My bus still isn't usable and I was really hoping to get have it at the show for.2024. Roll.on 2025!!
 
The last 2 shows just felt a little flat in my opinion, I usually take the kids along and its an enjoyable day out for them, but compared to pre-covid shows I'm just not feeling the same buzz and excitement despite what is being shouted across the PA...

Yeah, the whole scene has changed massively over that past few years, which is natural (and worthy of its own thread I guess) and is reflected in those attending.
In general 'normal' people are just not buying aircooled VW's anymore to have some fun in so the crowds become more niche/enthusiast. Add on the rising prices of absolutely everything and its a imperfect storm.
All that said, if you want to see the best VW's around at that moment, you really cant beat it.
 
Also, this year's show is tagged a 'plus' as they are partnering with Classic Porsche and on the Sunday they have 'retro' water cooled VW's. Not sure what years retro covers.

If they continue this each year, it could be the end of volksworld as we knew it :(

Yes, and the transfer of the VWT tickets to Volksworld show also suggest an increased newer transporter attendance.
Fair to say that if there’s not enough aircooled these days to fill it and pay its way then it has to diversify.
I’ve stopped going to various events due to the focus on modern vans , but it is what it is.
