THE EVENT - 2 July 2017

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Following 2016’s event, we received feedback from Prescott that noise/speeding in the nearby village and the noise on the site later in the evening was unacceptable. Should we not be able to better control this in 2017, the Club is running the risk of not being able to use this beautiful venue for this event in 2018 which would be devastating news.

On this basis the Club is working with the local Police to establish cameras/speed traps in the village over the weekend of 1st and 2nd July and in addition we will be employing site security to avoid a repeat of 2016’s event when a small minority spoiled the evening for others and left the campsite in a poor state too.

We would respectfully ask that if you are not prepared to adhere to the camping rules detailed below in relation to noise and music, that you do not camp at this event.

Camping At PSCUK’s Peugeot Festival 2017

So why not make your festival experience even better and camp at the site so you feel fresh and raring to go on Sunday morning - or perhaps not after several beers!

All camping tickets are pre-paid only please so that we can manage the volume of attendees and plan the pitch space this way. We are looking into setting up afternoon and evening entertainment to build a 'club spirit' for 2017's show and more information will follow soon in this regard.

Tickets will be on sale from the second week in January.


Members Camping vs Non-Members Camping

Both camping tickets allow you to arrive on the Saturday afternoon between 15:00 and 21:00 (strictly no entry after 21:00) so you can sample a bear (or 5) with your mates as a warm up for the Sunday show (with early entry granted from 07:30 on Sunday). Camping tickets are strictly advance purchase only; turning up on Saturday expecting to get in will result in you being turned away.

Where a Members ticket differs is that Members have access to park in the paddock (as do specially invited clubs).

ABOUT

History of the festival

In 1986 the first annual convention was held at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire. A venue since used by various other clubs after the Peugeot GTI club paved the way. The annual convention continued to be financed by Peugeot until 1995, which enabled the club to hire Silverstone for a number of years.

Having to be self-financing was proving to be challenging, and less expensive venues had to be found. The motor industry proving ground, near Nuneaton turned out to be a great venue from 1998 through to 2000, but restrictions on this venues usage meant another venue had to be found. 'Pugfest 01' was subsequently held as a static event in 2001, but then with track days ever more popular, and the availability of circuits getting more and more expensive, as well as hard to find, the committee struck upon the idea of a hill climb.

In 2002 the famous Prescott Hill in Gloucestershire was booked, where the convention has been held ever since. Since 2001 the convention has been called 'Pugfest' and has attracted thousands of visitors. 'Pugfest 2010' saw the club celebrating its 25 years of Peugeot enthusiasm!

2014 saw the celebration of 30 years of the 205 GTi with a heartstopping cavalcade up the hillclimb and a similar (albeit smaller) display in 2015 for the 309 GTi anniversary

For 2017, the event will be having a rebrand and will be known thereon as "PSCUK’s Peugeot Festival"

Why not join us at the next one? All Peugeot owners are welcome to the event.

PSCUK Membership Benefits

Membership is a bargain £20 and includes a joining pack which currently includes a branded tax disc holder and rear window sticker.

Members receive regular issues of our exclusive club magazine, "Torque" that includes road tests of new Peugeot models, news from Peugeot, Race and Rally news plus club news, views and readers letters. We also offer a unique opportunity to get your car featured in the our dedicated Peugeot Sport Club magazine.

*We do not make any profit from the membership fees that we charge. The Torque publication costs in excess of £1300 per issue and the Paypal/Worldpay fees and joining pack costs means that we break even on our membership fee.
