Vdub At The Pub
11th, 12th & 13th May 2012
Wimborne Football Club


After witnessing the success of combining engines and live music at the Drusilla’s Inn Steam Rally in 2007, VDUB At The PUB was born. However John had different kinds of engines in mind; Volkswagen engines! For 2 years, VW’s from near and far flocked to Drusilla’s Inn to enjoy a weekend of cars, music and beer. Show upon show, the numbers grew and grew and in 2010 VDUB moved to a larger show ground – the grounds of Wimborne Town Football Club – where it still runs today.

The 3-day event caters for everyone; from the music addict partying hard into the night, to the family enjoying a quiet weekend away from the hustle and bustle. From the beginning, VDUB has been passionate about supporting local charities and in the show’s history thus far, has already raised over £5000 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance!

VDUB prides itself on being a family-friendly event and usually the boogying toddlers put the adults’ dancing skills to shame! This year we have a garden games, a free bouncy castle for the under 14‘s and a new “Children’s Corner” where your little ones can play the day away. Why not check out Pete’s Didgeridoo workshop where he’ll be teaching the complex art!

For the windsurfing and aquatic sport lovers, we are teaming up with the legendary Windfest Team, with BMX performances on show!

For the ale lovers, we will be hosting the Piddle Brewery mini-beer festival at this year’s show, run by the Wimborne Town Football Club staff. And there’s no chance of going hungry with our vast array food outlets, delivering delicious dishes for all.

If you’re looking for that specific car part for your beloved VW, then our free jumble alley might take your fancy, alternatively there are a host of stalls selling a range of items, from cushions to T-shirts to Didgeridoos.

Friday night entertainment is hosted by the VDUB Soundsystem; a crew of DJs who will have the arena dancing all night.

Saturday sees a host of countrywide bands and singer-songwriters taking to the stage, the line-up takes the excellent quality that has gone before and adds some new, exciting acts to spice things up.

And of course, Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without the VDUB Show and Shine contest where enthusiasts can enter their vehicle in up to 11 different categories, with prizes for the winners.

This year, our fancy dress theme is “crazy sunglasses” for the whole event, so Elton impersonators should find this one a doddle!

Camping for the whole weekend is £18.50pp which includes your entry ticket. Under 14’s go free, must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets for day entry are as follows: Friday = £4, Saturday = £4 (before 12pm), £6 thereafter. Sunday = £5

Please, be aware if you bring your dog, it will only be allowed OUTSIDE the fenced arena, they are permitted in the camping and parking areas, this is for health and safety reasons, thank you.
