The event for people who want to build their dreams explore the world of self built campers – all in one place.
Every make and model is welcome.
Whether that is a micro camper or a top of the range bespoke jaw-dropping ex bus/coach built/horsebox/classic
and custom vans/military truck/motorhome. We welcome everyone regardless of their budget or build.
Here’s a selection of our display vehicles
Vanlife Festival is a major event never seen before in the UK. We are offering the vanlife community a place to exhibit their self-builds, share their adventures, and pass on their priceless knowledge with others. We welcome all makes and models from the smallest of micro campers to coaches, horseboxes, or even massive ex-army 8 x 8 trucks… and of course everything else in between!
Workshops and travel talks, live music, fire-pits, bespoke traders specialising in kit, accessories and gear for self-builders, inspirational display vehicles, tasty street food, kid’s entertainment, dog friendly, bushcraft and outdoor activities, the list goes on!
A down to earth, sensibly-priced family event (children under 16 yrs free entry), focusing on the heart of vanlife and all the subjects surrounding it. Within a centrally-located venue, our aim is to provide a setting where folk can chase their dreams, the ultimate goal of owning/building the ‘ideal vehicle’ that best suits their lifestyle – Your van, your way!
There is so much to see at Vanlife Festival. We have 100’s of inspirational display vehicles and tasty street food, we have spectacular events for all ages, live music, guest speakers and lots more…
Discover fun for the family – display vehicles and amazing events for children and adults to enjoy…
Including Tom Dibb telling tales with threads of surf, folk, roots, and alt country and other performers…
