They’ll be on Southsea Common for the annual Beach Dubbin event on 6th August to showcase their iconic VW Campervan, Freddie, in all his wedding finery. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the team and see the vehicle in person, which is currently having a pamper respray ahead of this year’s wedding season. His colours will remain the same as everyone loves, but Freddie will be ultra-shining from roof to bumpers. With the Campervan looking smarter than ever, the company will continue searching for another vehicle to join Freddie and the team.
