Great venue for these little festivals, we only live 10mins away, but feel like we've had a holiday when we stay here! Hadn't bought tickets in advance but were still only at the gate for 2-3mins and we were in! Toilets were nice & clean and always fully stocked, the shower cubicles (which I hadn't seen before) were immaculately white... More

I have visited Santa Pod as a spectator, racer and trader since 1997 so I am not happy with having to report that at the event above mentioned I encountered one member of their bar staff who is no more than a jumped up Hitler esque street robber, to summarise, on visiting the main bar tent on Saturday evening with...

This is our tenth visit and can honestly say it gets better with every visit,I believe it has come under new ownership a couple of years ago and it shows there is evidence of a fair bit of investment new toilet and shower blocks and drainage to the main camping fields. The staff are always helpful and do a amazing... More

Has something for everyone, from rides for the young children and little shops for the adults. The races were great, love how you get the younger people involved. Entertaining!! :)

Very disappointing for all the young children who were raring to go today, the rain just didn't let up, however we saw lee bowers perform some stunts and the monster trucks, a funfair, bouncy castles, merchandise stall holders plenty of food options, a covered eating area and an un covered eating area available for picnics, licensed bar, pancakes, candy floss,...

Each year we go to the PVS that is held here, its great to see all the cars on show, from the various Vauxhall owners clubs from all over the UK. Some race the clock on the drag strip, to see if they've got that 10 second car. There are lots of stalls selling Vauxhall goods and other car related... More

This was the fourth time we've been to VW Action and once again we were not disappointed. Thanks to the organisers for some great racing and even better partying. The Santa Pod staff as always were helpful and polite, the amenities were well looked after and weren't beaten by the several thousand drunks that were pottering about ;-) We'll be... More

What an amazing weekend my family spent at this friendly festival. It was really well organised, and clean, even the festival portaloos were maintained to very high standard throughout. The security and staff were evident and available if needed but we're not overbearing which allowed a relaxed atmosphere. Great to watch the racing and then enjoy the variety of music.... More
