Established 1983

Split Screen Van

The Split Screen Van Club was founded at Stanford Hall in May 1983 by a small group of dedicated Splitty lovers.

The main aim of the club is to preserve and celebrate these unique vintage Volkswagen vans and the expertise needed to maintain and restore them.

We welcome all owners, families, and enthusiasts of pre-1967 Vans. We are the only national club exclusively dedicated to this vehicle and have approximately 800 members, but ownership of a Split Screen Van is not a prerequisite for joining.

We attend national VW events as a club but also run our own social programme of camping weekends in the UK and Europe. Families with children of all ages are especially welcome in our club and our activities cater for all interests and ages.

Camping Weekend

Come and join us for a relaxed and friendly weekend with the chance to meet other members and make new friends.

The location is the same as the last 5 years and it's a great location surrounded by farm fields just north of Banbury. This is a very relaxing weekend were you can have BBQs and campfires. Make sure the children bring their water guns for the traditional water fight.

Technical Weekend

A members only weekend where you have the opportunity to help and/or learn from fellow members how to look after your bus.

The tasks vary depending on what help might be needed and who is on hand to offer advice. A sociable and informative event for all.

Brighton Breeze – pre-book only

5th - 6th October 2018

Madeira Drive, Brighton, BN2 1EN

Do you fancy a convoy or a drive down to Brighton in the company of hundreds of VW's of all types?

The Brighton Breeze 'Fun-Run' is the VW event organised by the Split Screen Van Club and is celebrating its 21st birthday this year.

Overnight camping is available the night before at Hook Road Arena in Epsom, then the 'Fun-Run' starts from Hook Road at 8am on Saturday to Madeira Drive in Brighton. After a day of fun on the seafront, camping is available back at Brighton Racecourse, with entertainment until the small hours, and a leisurely drive home on the Sunday for all our late night revelers.
