The 2013 Camper & Bus Show is an exciting new cruise and show from the people behind Camper&Bus magazine.
The show will involve a night’s camping in Guildford on Saturday 22nd June 2013, then a cruise (75miles) down to Bournemouth on Sunday 23rd June 2013, where a parking spot will be reserved for you on the seafront. You will line up with 100’s of other VW owners along one mile of seafront using Bournemouth beach as your backdrop.
Just metres from the golden sands of the Bournemouth beach and with no roads to cross or barriers to climb, you will have an un inturuped view out to sea.
The seafront show will include Traders, live music, kids entertainment and a host of other beach activities for you to enjoy from early morning until late afternoon
Tickets for those who wish to participate in the run and be a part of our line-up along Bournemouth seafront are now on sale at www.vwcamperandbus.com/show-tickets
The cost of your ticket includes camping at Guildford for one vehicle and as many people as you can squeeze into your ride, participation in the cruise, entry to the seafront line up and show plus a goody bag worth £20.00. Those without a ticket will not be permitted to park on the seafront. However there is plenty of parking in the area. Please see “Location” for a map of the seafront and for designated parking areas.

What else is going on?
VW powered aerial display
The Red Hawks display plane will be performing aerial ballet and other great things over your head on the day. It uses a VW Heritage supplied 39hp VW air-cooled engine, so look into the sky and marvel at what this plane can achieve with such little power.
BMX on the beach
If you love your BMXs, we have something special for you at the Camper&Bus Show. Firstly, we are building a half pipe on the beach with the infamous Cool Flo Pro Riders catching some BIG AIR all day. For those who prefer their BMXs stationary, we have one of the top BMX concours events in the country. Some seriously rare ’80’s metal will be on display, so why not pick your favourite for the Cool Flo BMX Visitors’ Choice award. If you wish to enter the BMX concours email firstname.lastname@example.org

Free family fun all day
We want you to have a good old fashioned day out at the beach so have a wide variety of
entertainment to keep you and the kids amused. First off we have booked the world famous Punch and his wife Judy to perform three times a day. Next is the kids activity tent where a host of children’s crafts will be available for the kids to participate in, Van Man will be making several appearances throughout the day, so make sure you look out for him too. On the beach, entertainment will include a sand castle building competition, beach football and volleyball, beach Olympics and even a limbo competition! Everything is free so you won’t break the bank either.
Cool Flo will be heading up the musical entertainment this year with their unique blend of DJs and live music all performing from the main stage on the beach. This will be a great place to chill out and soak up the sun’s rays and take in the event atmosphere.
