Ninove 2018, the event I could not get to in the end

As some may be aware, a couple of friends an I undertook the organising and promotion of this years official UK Cruise to Ninove.  Unfortunately, I could not get to the actual Ninove event itself, a work commitment on my side got in the way 🙁

So having designed the branding for the exclusive t-shirts and event promotion, I was a bit gutted to not be able to make the event itself, I guess there is always next year I suppose…

I missed rolling into the town centre to take my place with the hundreds of other air cooled VW’s

However, my bus buddies reliably informed me that we got 96 vehicles on the official UK Cruise to the Slaghmuylder Witkap Brewery in Ninove. Which if there were world records for such things, this would undoubtedly be a new one! We also managed to give away fifty rather snazzy limited edition cruise t-shirts to some lucky participants of the cruise!

Hopefully, everyone that went on the cruise had a great time and really enjoyed the show. It’s got me itching to go to another European air-cooled VW show as I felt I really missed out not being able to go to this one.

As Andy Warhol once famously said ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes’ – well I think we have just had our fifteen minutes then! Great to see a double page spread write-up of the event in the Volkswagen and Camper magazine. There are also some cool videos on the official UK Cruise to Ninove facebook page if you want to check them out…

I’m busy chasing the guys to get various photos from the event to share on here, hopefully, this will be sooner rather than later…
