MONDAY 27 AUGUST 2018
CAR & MOTORCYCLE SHOW
Thoresby Park, Ollerton, Notts, NG22 9EP
CAR & MOTORCYCLE SHOW
Includes the East Midlands Mini & VW Show
The first Thoresby event of 2017 for a 2-day vehicle extravaganza!
We have been running events at Thoresby Park for almost a quarter of a century and in that time the events have grown from a handful of stalls and display cars to what is probably now the biggest and best kept secret in the classic motoring scene! So much so that the editor of Classic Motor Monthly reported the turn out to be “jaw dropping”.
Two great themes – classics and Fords on Sunday. Classics, Minis and VWs on Monday.
This is the 46th Classic Car and Motorcycle Show that has been held by Classic Shows at Thoresby Park.
This is the 46th time Classic Shows returns to run the Classic Car and Motorcycle Show at this great venue.
