VW Beetle Drive at Crich Tramway Village this Sunday 23rd September 2012

This Sunday 23rd September 2012, The annual VW Beetle Drive will take place at Crich Tramway Village, Derbyshire.

You can book your tickets online for Crich Tramway so you don't have to queue when you get there. The ticket lasts for 12 months from day of purchase.

Tickets for the 2012 VW Beetle Drive at Crich Tramway are £12 per adult. The ticket confirmation will be sent to you by email.

Here is a video I took of the Beetle Drive in 2010 to give you an idea of what you can see.

Hundreds of classic VWs are expected at the event which will play host to vehicle displays, show & shine, clubs stands and trade stalls.

I don't own a Beetle but really enjoyed watching Beetle Crisis when it was on Discovery Turbo. The two series of which are now on DVD also have you seen the TV Series Campervan Crisis? Very entertaining watching Nigel Isted trying to restore a rather rusty 1965 Devon Campe, this is also on DVD now.

The Beetle is a classic car, so as you would expect you can buy all sorts of VW stuff even a Beetle iPhone cover !

The Tramway Village’s cobbled street is an ideal setting for classic vehicle rallies, a highlight of the event is the street parades where the VWs drive in convoy down the cobbled street among the vintage trams!

If you own an old VW Beetle then you can even take part in this show. Entry for drivers of vehicles built and registered before 1st Jan 1968 is free. The entry fee for drivers of newer vehicles and all passengers booking in advance is £9 per adult, £8 per senior and £5 per child.See their website for booking forms.

Crich Tramway Village.

Hope you enjoy your day.
