Sponsored by Breeze Volkswagen Group, the celebration of this much-loved German marque will return with a varied line-up of Volkswagen models, both classic and modern. Campers and commercials, from the iconic Type 2 to the latest T6, will form the backbone of the display, with additional saloons, hatches and sports cars.
