Classic Cars

Showcasing the best of the UK classic car scene, this is one of the biggest classic car shows in the country. Packed with hundreds of motoring icons ranging from some of the earliest vehicles ever made, through: 50′s, 60′s, 70′s,80′s and 90′s.

Live Rally Action

The Rallying with Group B Club will be driving some of these motorsport icons at the show on a special ‘stage’ just outside the halls three times a day! See and hear some of the fastest and fiercest rally cars the world has ever seen.

Trade Stands

Whether you’ve got a concours-standard classic, or a rusty barn-find awaiting a ground-up restoration (or, like most of us, something in-between) one thing is for sure; Classic Cars usually need something doing to them!


Official Car Care Partners CödeClean invite final entries from owners of the very best examples of all Marques/Models (over 20 years old) to take part in this prestigious event.
