EVENT UPDATES 2020

Below is the latest news regarding Classic Shows’ events, it covers which events are going ahead, which are cancelled and also mentions extra events being added into the calendar, or events that we hope to introduce.

We thank all customers for their patience. You will appreciate this is a very uncertain time but we assure you that we are trying our best to run as many events as we can before the end of the season so long that this can be done safely and compliantly with the current guidelines around COVID.

UPDATE ON UPCOMING EVENTS

The situation regarding COVID is creating considerable uncertainty and makes it very difficult to plan for events. However, we believe we have proved via the recent event at Capesthorne Hall that events can be run safely with a range of COVID-related measures having been introduced and we remain highly focussed on trying our best to put on further events before the end of 2020.

We provide our sincere thanks to our customers who have supported these events.

SUNDAY 27 SEPTEMBER

EVENT AT NEWSTEAD ABBEY – CANCELLED

EVENT AT CAPESTHORNE HALL – CANCELLED

Newstead and Capesthorne Hall on Sunday 27th September will not be going ahead.

We are disappointed to announce that we have received confirmation this afternoon that the event due to take place at Capesthorne Hall this Sunday 27 September 2020 has been cancelled. The decision was taken by the venue and is unfortunately outside of our hands.

Whilst we believe that we have a safe and compliant concept to run outdoor car shows at the current time, we accept the position regarding COVID is evolving on a daily basis and to this effect respect the venue’s decision.

As things stand, this does not impact on any of our other events that we have scheduled for 2020.

We apologies for any inconvenience caused to our supporters. This is unfortunately the risk that comes with trying to make events happen in the current environment.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

1,000+ EVENTS OVER 30+ YEARS

Classic Shows is a long-standing organiser and operator of classic vehicle events having organised over 1,000 events since its inception in 1985.

Since this time Classic Shows has operated events from most of the UKs major indoor venues including Alexandra Palace, GMEX, NEC and Event City and a large number of prestigious country homes locations such as Blenheim Palace, Harewood House, Clumber Park, Capesthorne Hall, Bodelwyddan Castle and Cholmondeley Castle.

We like to try and keep things simple and our philosophy focusses on three core strands:

This approach has helped Classic Shows to become firmly established as the longest running independent operator of classic vehicle events in the UK.

In the winter months the business operates a number of classic car and motorbike autojumbles and motorbike events at Three Counties Showground, Malvern. This recently refurbished facility provides considerable indoor and outdoor accommodation and offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire hard-to-find parts, supplies, memorabilia and mingle with likeminded vehicle enthusiasts.

During the summer, the events grow in scale and change theme to that of classic car and motorbike shows. These events all include considerable autojumble and retail opportunities but also involve displays of 300 – 1,000+ classic vehicles, experienced concours judging, commentary and awards ceremonies throughout the event all set within the backdrop of a superb country home location.

UPCOMING EVENTS

A GREAT DAY OUT FOR ALL THE FAMILY

Classic Shows events offer a fantastic day out for all of the family and not just car enthusiasts!

The events are held at some of the finest country homes in the UK and provide an impressive backdrop to a display of rare and interesting classic vehicles. Many venues allow tours of the country house, grounds and / or also include children’s play facilities in addition to unique shops, food offerings and the retail of local produce.

We hope to continue to add further, relevant new content in 2020 to ensure the events continue to appeal to the whole family.

So whether it’s learning more about the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and the location for filming the James Bond film Skyfall at Blenheim Palace, experiencing one of only ten Treasure Houses of England at Castle Howard, or taking in the Neoclassical and Jacobean designs of Capesthorne Hall; there is much more to a Classic Shows event than may meet the eye!
