South West/Bristol - First Friday Motor Meet - 2024 dates added

The Bristol meet is a long running VW meet up which occurs on the first Friday of every month.
Located in North Bristol, just off M5 jct16 at the Toby Carvery Pub in Bradley Stoke.
Starting around 7:30, but if you're first to arrive just hang around a little while.

Toby Carvery (formerly The Orchard)
Woodlands Lane,
BS32 4QB,-2.5610654,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4871911eeff34d59:0x4f2cdbe1cdfeed2d!8m2!3d51.546853!4d-2.558841

For newcomers, we park on the straight strip of car park directly in front of you as you turn off the main road, and avoid the main pub car park. We usually hang around for a bit while others arrive, and park up before heading into the pub for a shandy or refillable Pepsi. ;-)

The meet historically started as a mk2 meet then a few of the mk1 OC guys got involved and rebranded as Bristol Dub Love for all VW. Over the years as regulars have changed vehicles we’ve welcomed all types. It's just a chill car 'and bike' meet - no judgment.

When COVID hit this meet obviously stopped. We managed to kick it back off in December 2021 and over the course of 2022 have managed a build it back up so looking forward to bigger and better throughout 2023.

October already, can you believe it?

We don’t stop the meet ups for winter. We just head inside the pub earlier when it’s cold, dark and/or wet.

And some people arrive in their dailies….  :o

This coming Friday (6th October) is the next meet.
There’s usually someone around from about 7:15 but if there’s no one there when you arrive just hang about for a bit. 7:30-8:00 most people arrive.
