VW fans in for a treat at Dub Aid in Malmesbury
5:00pm Saturday 9th March 2013 in News
Hundreds of Volkswagens, from classic cars to campervans, will be on display next weekend at the third annual Dub Aid event.
Dub Aid, which started in 2011 to unite Volkswagen owners, returns this month to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and St John Ambulance.
The event runs from March 15-17 in Charlton Park, Malmesbury.
There will be live music throughout the weekend with performances from Spirit of the State, Nudy Bronque, The Skangsters, Dirty Works and Tom Dibb.
Volkswagen owners will have the chance to enter their vehicle in a competition titled Show & Shine, which has categories including Best Accessory, Junior Dubs and Best in Show.
There will also be food and merchandise stalls, and the return of the retro bike show.
On Saturday night, revellers can take part in fancy dress in the theme Doctors and Nurses, chosen to reflect the charity choices.
In previous years, Dub Aid has raised about £15,000 for charity, and organisers are aiming for another successful year.
One said: “We’d like to make what we’ve made before – around £6,000.
“Because of the current climate anything is brilliant. It all depends on what people feel like.”
Weekend tickets cost £20 per person, including camping, and day tickets cost £5. Under 16s enter for free, but must be accompanied by a paying adult. For more, or to book, visit www.dubaid.co.uk
