A Volkswagen festival with three days of live music and a huge range of classic cars will be returning to Suffolk next month.

Beetle-Juiced Festival will be coming back to Glemham Hall, in between Woodbridge and Saxmundham, on the weekend of May 20-22. 

The festival will feature bands and DJs across three stages as well as two different "show and shine" car competitions – Modded VWs on Saturday and traditional cars on Sunday.

Event organiser Ross Crab said: "It's a three-day festival which puts a spotlight on some of the country's best show cars from VW and the wider Volkswagen Automotive Group.

"We then combine this with an awesome music line-up across three arenas, the likes of which are rarely seen at this type of event.

"It's then finished off with a selection of quality traders and street food vendors, professional BMX stunt displays, a fairground and kids entertainment.

"Beetle-Juiced Festival really does have something for everyone."

He added: "After the struggles of launching a brand new event in 2021, during a global pandemic, we have decided to pull out all the stops for 2022 with a stunning new venue and huge lineup.

"With restrictions and postponements a thing of the past... it's time to show people what we're capable of when we're set free!"
