Slough Swapmeet is back for 2018 but with a NEW VENUE – Bracknell Leisure Centre, a real step-up with a lot more parking as well as being much more modern. The date for this year’s event will be November 4th, opening the doors to the public at 9:30am.
Of course YOU CAN TRADE TOO!!! You need to pre-book and you can find more information and the link to the booking form on the “Book a Table” tab.
To come to look and buy it’s £5 on the door or a little cheaper if you pre-book. Check the “Buy Tickets” tab for the link to pre-book. Under 16s accompanied by an adult are free.
We are proud to say this year’s Slough Swapmeet is sponsored by Just Kampers – Preservation Parts. JK will have a plot at the Swapmeet with their range of exclusive high-quality panels and parts. Be sure to check them out.

Slough Swapmeet is an indoor table-top sale/auto-Jumble that caters specifically for the Classic Volkswagen community. Porsches are more than welcome (obviously) and anything German and interesting will be warmly received. If you turn up in a Renault 5 Turbo you’re on your own…
The event is all about parts, spares, accessories. It isn’t an event for cushions and £5 tees. Buying face-to-face will always be better than the internet. Seeing the product, speaking direct to the seller and just taking it home with you. Some of the best bits are not available online.
Also, it’s a great end of season social event, a chance to take your old VW out for a spin and catch up with friends
The car park is always amazing, the quality and quantity of air-cooled Volkswagens (and Porsches) is impressive. A show within a show. So as a side-line we give out trophies and all you have to do is turn up and park up. There’s no cost, no booking form. It’s automatic. This year’s diverse set of trophies include ‘Four on the Floor’ – (sponsored by 464 co.), ‘Best Shiny’ – (sponsored by Tiki Details), ‘Stranger Things’ – (probably ridiculous trophy made by Bpc_retro), ‘Chet’s Old School Choice’ – (sponsored by Chetsuit Repair Man), ‘Wolfsburg Bus Crew Best Bus in Bracknell’ and of course ‘King of the Carpark’ – sponsored by Just Kampers
This year we’re planning to make a dedicated space in the new carpark for air-cooled VW for sale – The Swapmeet is indoors and pre-booked but we’ve got no problem with people popping a ‘For Sale’ sign on their old Volkswagen. Just let the car park crew know and they’ll direct you where to go.
Thanks for the support,
