VANFEST - UPDATE JULY 2011

VANFEST UPDATE - JULY 2011


TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR BOOKING YOUR CAMPING :cry:

If you have not yet made up your mind to come to VANFEST (or not) this year, then time is running out.

There is now JUST 2 WEEKS to go before we CLOSE the Advance Bookings.


We are on target to close the advance bookings ON JULY 31st. 8O

Some of the popular camping areas are now full. LANGDALE WOOD CAMP is now FULL. The FAMILY CAMPS are also now almost FULL. (we are now filling up the last Family Camps). Clubs will have to close their bookings soon too.

Vanfest regulars will notice that a lot of groundwork & landscaping has been carried out to the site this will give some areas a lot more room, (in particular the Family area), where we have now opened up another wooded camp.
The Severn Hall has been extended, and there are several other new roadways on the site to improve pedestrian & vehicle access.

We already have a full compliment of traders (over 350 plots). Can you please note that VANFEST is now a FULL THREE DAY EVENT. Our trade is fully in place by the Thursday Night & we open to both Day Visitors & Campers on the FRIDAY (10.00)

ARRIVING EARLY – LEAVING LATE? :bounce:
If you fancy arriving in the MALVERN area a bit earlier to do a bit of local sightseeing or/and leaving on the Monday after the event then our WELLAND SITE (located about 1km from the Main site) is an ideal spot for you to be based for this year’s event. (It does have Toilets & Showers )
Our WELLAND SITE will be opening on WEDNESDAY 7th Sept until MONDAY 12th Sept.
We run a shuttle bus to & from the main site from the Friday, so you can have all the Festival experience & then go back to a much more relaxed campsite in the evenings.

HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN TO BOOK YOUR CAMPING UNIT PASS(s)? :oops:
Please be aware if you are intending to book (or have already booked) for camping that you must also book your camping unit space(s) as a separate (extra) to your adult entry tickets.
We will be catching up with those who have managed to miss that bit, but if you are one of these people, there is now an additional booking facility for extra (or failed to book) camping units which allows you to just book camping units.

We will be sending out tickets during end of July & early August :cheers:

VANFEST BIG 60 – A CELEBRATION OF OVER 60 YEARS OF TRANSPORTING
You may have noticed, on the telly the latest, VW Commercials Advert celebrating 60 years of Transporters. We are a bit ahead of the game.
Following on from last year’s preliminary attempt of getting a VW Transporter from each year of manufacture into a single line up, this year we are going to have another go at it and hopefully this time we will get the FULL compliment of vans.

It really is very simple. We are looking for (wherever possible) fairly standard vans from each year of manufacture. This will be done on a first come basis & we will gradually build up a running list of successful vehicles, which will be shown on the website. This display will take part on the Saturday in the MAIN ARENA. (Rikki James will be coordinating this one)

If you would like to take part in the display or any of our other ones (Well Travelled Transporters, Syncro4motion, Alternative Engines, Emergency Vehicles) please check the Display Section on the Website.We will of course still have our full programme of events & have our SHOW & SHINE on the SUNDAY. (This year under new management)

SLADE COMING TO VANFEST?

YES it is TRUE. :bounce:

This is a real treat for Vanfest (and Slade fans).

The boys from Wolverhampton spend most of their time touring Europe these days (where they are still MEGGASTARS!).
We have managed to get them for one of their very few (the other one being Bognor!), UK tour Dates.

So Cum & Feel the Noize at this year’s Vanfest.

SORRY, but we were unable to get the WOMBLES (some other bloke at Glastonbury got them signed up before they went back into hibernation)…………..

BUT, ……………………………………….

ARE YOU TOO SEXY FOR YOUR VAN? :colors:

Well maybe not but some of these Guys are..........................

RIGHT SAID FRED, DIVA FEVER, MIKKI JAY, COUNTERFEIT ABBA, TROPICAL HEATWAVE,

DRUIDS BREW, BRIAN COLLINS BAND.DEVIOUS, POSTMANS OPERA, NAKED REMEDY, FRANTIC plus BATTLE OF THE BANDS COMPETITION. ANDEEJAY

If you want to see any/all of these HEADLINE bands please book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
Tickets numbers are limited but (at the moment) still available on our Website booking page or at our Vanfest Promo Stand Events.
They are selling so if you do want to attend the Main entertainments then get them now there may not be many/any left for sale at the event.
When they have gone they’ve gone :bom:

Please note; that in ADDITION to the Main Entertaiment there are also 3 other venues of FREE Evening entertinment (PLUS a quiet Bar & Restraurant) on the site.
For Full line up of entertainment (over 20 live bands) check out our Entertainment Pages. Also check out http://www.slade40years.com


VANFEST “VANCY DRESS” - A FANCY DRESS COMPETITION for you AND your CAMPER
This is something NEW for this year’s VANFEST which the whole family & friends (including your van) can get involved in.
Many of you already dress up to go to our evening entertainment; (others because you just like dressing up!). Why not get your van involved as well?
This year we have numerous themes running at VANFEST over the weekend, so there is plenty to chose from if you cannot manage to come up with something yourself.
Many Clubs are also taking part in our Themed Club Plot Competition as well so a “VANCY Dress VAN in the VANCY DRESS Competition could also be part of it as well. (if you have ever been a young Farmer then you will know what this is all about!)
