Capesthorne Hall – Sunday 27 September 2020

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.

Adult £8.50
Child (7-14) £3.50
Under 7s Free

Visitor parking is free.

WHY TRADE WITH CLASSIC SHOWS?

Classic Shows events offer an ideal opportunity to sell, or promote to, a large number of classic car and motorcycle enthusiasts including vehicle owners (exhibitors) and members of the general public (visitors). Common items for sale include hard-to-find parts, merchandise, memorabilia, manuals / books, signs, number plates, polishes and detailing items, vintage items and Americana.

In addition, the events also attract considerable family and day visitors providing further opportunities including craft items, gifts, photographs and posters, clothing and confectionery (fudge, cakes etc).

As Classic Shows events are located at some of the UK’s most prestigious country homes and venues, the events attract a strong ABC1 / professional / high disposable income demographic which in turn presents the perfect opportunity to achieve event profile or sales from a qualified audience.

TRADING PITCHES

Pitches are 6x6m (or multiples thereof), outdoors and are located on grass unless stated otherwise. Pitches are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

COST PER PITCH
