BeachBuggin’ is a static car show, always supported by plenty of VW, Classic Car and Custom Car enthusiasts, VW and Classic Car clubs, VW and leisure traders and the general public. On average the show has 1500 cars in attendance.
Entry is £10 to display your vehicle or free to walk on.
The show is run
on a ‘not 4 profit’ show by volunteers. The show pledge is advertised on the website www.beachbuggin.co.uk. Three quarters of our profits goes to charity, with the remaining funds used as working capital for the next year’s show.
All organisation and running of the show on the is done on a voluntary basis.
In 2017 the show raised over £5,000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind to name a puppy, £500 for the Firefighters Benevolant fund, £600 for Hayling Island Scouts Jamboree and £3,000 for the Amanda Fund (which gives 6 x £500 of donations each year to local charities and community fundraising events).
Over the past 17 years we have raised over £100k for local good causes and charities.
The Charity being supported in 2018 will be selected following nominations from the event attendees in 2017.
The main attraction of the show is the Show n Shine Competition which attracts entrants from all over the South of England to compete in 17 different VW classes and for the best of show trophy.
Vehicles not entered into the concourse competition automatically enter the general display field (laid out in zones of VW's, Classic and Custom, Scooters and American cars to compete for the BeachBuggin’ Visitors Trophy.
Revenue for the chosen charities is generated through trade pitch and catering pitch fees, which are prepaid before the event and through paid entry to one of the display arenas – Show n Shine competition, club display areas or general display arena and entry into the competition to win Best in Show.
The show has a variety of lifestyle stalls with relevant car and camping / leisure related products for sale, catering stalls are also offered.
