The hopefully beautiful and sunny upcoming summer months at Stonham Barns are all about the spectacular, thrilling motor related events. Featuring something for the hardcore petrol head, enthusiasts or a family wanting to go out for the day and attend something a little bit different.

The line up begins with the Suffolk Volksfest from Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd June 2013, a three day event for all owners and types of VW’s. Volksfest was one of the first shows to actively combine Air and Water cooled dubs in a show. You are as welcome in your 1975 Polo as you are in a 1956 Oval, or anything else in the Volkswagen family. The event includes show and shine, entertainment and much more for all the family and to top it off you can camp out for the whole three days! Ticket prices: 1 Day pass £8, camping Sat/Sun £25, Sat only £20 and Family weekend £45.

The other fantastic VW motor show being held at the Stonham Barns Showground is the Dub Vacation which is “The VW Lovers Holiday” being a vacation week for VW owners and families. This is followed by UK Bus Jam, a Weekend show dedicated to VW transporter types T2.T3/25, T4, T5 and LT models.

Stonham Barn’s biggest one day show is The Classic Car & Vintage Market event featuring hundreds of classic cars on display ranging from early 1920’s to modern day marques and models. Within this show is a Vintage Market with lots of traders selling all kinds of retro and vintage memorabilia from the 40’s through to the 60’s and 70’s. A family funfair will also be at the event to keep the younger attendees busy throughout the day.

And, to top off your fantastic weekend at Stonham Barns you could sample the fantastic new restaurant, Sweet & Savoury, which is open every day from 9.30am until 3.30pm where they serve breakfast, light and hot meals, tea and cake, with wonderful roast dinner on Sundays.
