In photos: Thousands of Volkswagen enthusiasts flock to Brean

Over 2,000 Volkswagen enthusiasts flocked to Brean at the weekend for a three-day festival celebrating the vehicles.

Van West 2009 was held at Brean Leisure Park, where car-themed trade stands, exhibitions and entertainment were laid on.

The event also included a mass drive along Brean beach on Sunday, as pictured here.

Organisers Chris White and Adrian Ashby (pictured) said the event had been a great success after being held in Brean for the first time.

"The festival has been held at Sparkford for the last three years, but we wanted to take it to the seaside and Brean has proved to be a great venue. We had over 2,000 visitors, 80 trade stands and almost 700 VW vehicles on site. We certainly hope to return here again next year."
