ClassicModernModifiedTrack Day

VW Action is the longest running weekend VW Show in the world - now in its 44th year!

The show has in one form or another been the true 'Jewel in the Crown' of UK VW events, from its early days at Stoneleigh, the NAS Stoneleigh shows, the period of its residency at Peterborough, at Herts County Showground, and now at Santa Pod. The last twelve years or so at 'The Pod' have produced quite exceptional shows, and 2019's event continued to raise the bar. The 'Roman Toga Party' theme, complete with its big budget stage set that transformed the marquee into an 'Up Pompeii'/Ancient Rome style setting was embraced by all and the show received acclaim from all who attended.

2020's event will continue the great tradition of VW Action delivering the absolute best event for the true VW enthusiast. VW Action is a show to which people are happy to bring their young family members, and yet which provides full on entertainment for all of its visitors, whatever their age or interests.

For 2020, we are taking visitors 'Back To The 80s' - with Saturday evening's stage dressed with iconic symbols of that decade. Fancy dress possibilities could range from simple 'big' hair and shoulder pads - and possibly 'leg-warmers', or 80s icons like 'The A-Team', 'Top Gun', 'Miami Vice', 'Ghostbusters' and 'Magnum pi' etc. - the choice is yours.

VW Action are proud to welcome one of the world's premier '80s' bands: 'The Deloreans'. They will deliver an anthemic 80s set for all to sing-along and dance to - be sure to catch them in the Main Marquee on Saturday night. Plus Jensen D Groover will be playing 80s Pop, Soul, Dance and Indie Anthems with the Narni Shakers as sexy 80s ladies. With the Fuellers Bar featuring 'Dance/80s Acid House Anthems' - Saturday night at VW Action will have something for everyone*. There is more information in the entertainment section of this website - including Friday's Indie Rock Party in the Fuelers Bar. We hope to see many cool characters in attendance (whichever fancy dress route you want to take) - and if previous years are anything to go by, we know you won't disappoint us.

* Your ticket grants access to a Sporting Event only. Access to collateral/ancillary activities, including music, provided by the event in support of the Sporting Event will only be granted under the generic Sporting Event ticket, as no ticket for any collateral activities can be purchased as a standalone. All music/entertainment etc. is free of charge when purchasing your VW Action Sporting Event ticket.
