    We are full steam ahead to come back in 2022 with a bigger and better show but all still wrapped up in the great family vibe that is Volkspower.

    Tickets are on sale and the earlier you book the more money you can save. All tickets already purchased will be honoured and we do offer full refunds if the event has to be cancelled due to Covid.

    We are really looking forward to welcoming you back to the rugby club - if you haven't been before we have a great flat site just a couple of minutes walk from a 10 mile stretch of beach - plenty of space to tire out the kids and dogs!! We are also well placed for provisions if you can't get sorted on site.
