THIS WEEKEND the magnificent grounds of one of Cheshire’s stately homes will undergo something of a transformation.
On Sunday, the normally tranquil grounds of Tatton Park will become home to a variety of classic Volkswagens for one day only as the annual VWNW show takes place.
Now in its 27th year, the show is the largest VW enthusiast gathering in the north of England and doors open at 9am on Sunday, August 5.
Classic VW Beetle’s and camper vans of all standards from the custom to the popular rat look line up alongside more modern vehicles and the concours competitions are always highly contested.
As well as all the usual cars to view, there will also be a display of beach buggies during this year’s show, as part of a fund-raising drive for Manchester Children’s Hospital.
There will also be an autojumble, trade stands and an area with cars for sale.
For children, there’s a funfair and other attractions and visitors can also enjoy the surroundings of Tatton Park and the other facilities it has to offer.
Entry to VWNW costs £7.50 although separate charges to Tatton Park apply. Children under 14 are free.
