The Show

VW Action is the longest running VW Show in the UK, and 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 three years at ‘The Pod’ have produced quite exceptional shows, and 2010 contunued 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. Every year Action has a theme, and this year was an early Christmas


The Photographers

Nick Grant has been working with car magazines such as Custom Car, Ultra VW, Classic American and Milkcow for a number of years. His candid shooting style captures the atmosphere of the event perfectly.


Julian Robinson is the first person you think of when you want to see photos of any VW show. He been taking digital pictures at VW Shows and Drag Race meetings around the UK and further a field for the last 10 years and has over 50,000 photos online. Documenting the VW scene, not just taking pictures.
