NOTTS CLASSIC CAR & MOTORCYCLE SHOW
Thoresby Park

The first Thoresby Park event of 2019, 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 one of the biggest and best kept secrets in the classic motoring scene! So much so that the editor of Classic Motor Monthly reported the turn out to be “jaw dropping”.

The event features over 500 vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles on display each day and includes two special themes – Fords on Sunday 5th and Minis and VWs on Monday 6th.

Join us for a great day out for all the family, jammed packed with things to do and see.

Admission prices are per day.

Adult £8.00
Child (7-14) £3.00
Under 7s Free

Admission prices remain unchanged from 2018.

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.

We have plenty of outdoor pitches, so don’t expect to run out, but if you would like a particular pitch it’s best to arrive early as we do not reserve outside pitches in advance (other than for Premium Trade – see below).

PREMIUM TRADE

Want to stand out from the crowd? Want to really push your sales? Then why not speak to the office about the exclusive premium trading opportunities offered at Classic Shows events?

At all events we have identified those trading locations which offer the highest footfall and / or greatest trading profile, for example those locations adjacent to the judging arena, catering village or on the end of a trade row. These locations are ideal for traders wishing to maximise the trading opportunity by promoting a new product launch, product placements or special offers.

Premium trade pitches start from 6m*6m and multiple spaces are also available. Spaces are allocated and reserved in advance. A site map is available for each event identifying the premium trading locations – see the Booking Form section of the website for further details.
