For the perfect outdoor end-of-year show, Westside is the one. It’s the final event on our calendar that makes use of whatever sunshine the British weather has left before the Winter period begins, and it’s always one to look forward to. Held in the picturesque grounds of the Chalfont St. Peter cricket club, just west of London, the show gets busier year on year, and remains a solid favourite amongst many. This is more than likely down to the amazing, chilled vibe, great old-school music, delicious traditional Indian and Jamaican food, and of course awesome cars to drool over all day. This is the show for those select friends you meet over the years (okay, perhaps the older generation?), who have given up going to car shows, but still find themselves here. It’s the “If I only do one show this year…” event. So much so, we always bump into old friends at Westside, which makes it even more worthwhile. 2017’s show marked the 10th anniversary – that’s quite an achievement! And, the fifth year of us covering it… So, sit back, and take a look at our highlights…

See what we mean by awesome cars? Don’t forget the Bonus Gallery below for even more, too. So, what started out as a purely Volkswagen orientated show, Westside have rightfully moved with the times and opened up to much more than just VAG cars. Every year we see even more BMW’s, Mercedes, and even Jap cars wanting to be involved with this ‘gathering-style’ event. There’s not another show like it in the UK, and for that reason, Westside will always have a place on our calendar. 2018’s date is provisionally set for Sunday 23rd September… What are you waiting for? Get it in your diary.
