Music festival met classic car show over the weekend when the VW Whitenoise Festival to Euston Park.
The event, which has been held at various Norfolk venues for 13 years, boasted ‘a huge selection of live music and DJs across several stages’ but combined that with family attractions and an amazing collection of classic Volkswagens.
There was even a campsite only for those bringing classic VW camper vans.
The finale on Sunday was an impressive ‘show n shine’ attracting hundreds of motoring competitors to show off their beautifully restored VWs, from Splitscreen campers and Karmann Ghia to modern VW Golfsbut there were also prizes for best hot rod, ‘Wildest Ride’ and furthest travelled car.
If you could not afford a classic or custom car, there was a show for retro and customised bicycles and a superheroes and dastardly villains fancy dress.
Music was headlined by the Dub Pistols and Dreadzone plus Millia Manders, Savage Island, Night Terrors and others.
You could try your hand at making music yourself, see puppets and magic, thrill to the wall of death or try some quiet craft activities. There was also a whole programme of free activities for the children.
If you were restoring a VW, it was worth looking round the trade stands which included people selling things you were likely to need, ranging from bumpers to spanners.
