About us/Contact us

A truly independent Motoring, Arts and Music festival that doesn’t work to a formula and excels with diverse live music, a beautiful Estate venue at Euston Hall on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and unrivalled FREE activities for children, which have included totem-pole making and trombone lessons!

We were the very first VW and Music Festival established in Norfolk over 15 years ago with very much our own Festival style. This was way before the popular CarFest concept was born! We are a local couple and bought our first VW Camper back in 2001. We currently own a ’71 early bay called Mrs Butterworth, a ’71 Fiat 124 called the ‘Grandad car’ and are starting to transform a battered, Danish MKP Smutti caravan. (Hence the introduction of the NEW ‘Otherness’ car show competition for 2017, on the Saturday, to include more diverse retro motors.) We grew up camping and love good music and theatre.We spend all year planning the show in every moment of our spare time. 

We get congratulated on our diverse affordable VW festival food every year! We welcome well-behaved pooches, have a thriving bicycle culture and even sometimes Frank Spencer wandering our site or a trapeze performance!

The final day of VW Whitenoise culminates with an impressive ‘show n shine’ which attracts hundreds of motoring competitors. Top notch examples of the best-loved and rare VWs  – from splitscreens to karmann ghias – to top class, modern day VW golfs, T4s and T5s and welcome an eclectic mix of vehicles with rewards for Best Rod and Wildest Ride.

We’ve just finished the 2017 event, back at the stunning Euston Park.  We welcomed our faithful crowd and more lovely new Whitenoisers. We hope you all had a blast. We now take a break and return to our fulltime day jobs. We will share news on our future plans once we have recovered from this one! Thanks to absolutely everyone who came and made the 15th anniversary celebration such a very lovely one.

Previous venues have included Fritton Lake, Wolterton Hall, North Walsham Rugby Club and the Norfolk Showground. The event’s popularity has seen it outgrow many venues and it’s new home is perfectly placed on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, just 85 miles from London, close to Thetford and accessed via the newly dualled A11; making a speedy difference to the journey in 2017!
