After this time the full on-the-day admission price will apply. Please adhere to a strict 5MPH speed limit whilst on site.

  4. ADVERTISING:  No advertising is allowed on any private exhibiting vehicles. Cars can be offered for sale but need to display a ‘CAR FOR SALE’ window banner which is available from the organiser at an additional cost of £10 per day payable on show day. All clubs are invited to display a banner or board with their name clearly indicated. A prize will be awarded to the best club stand. Clubs may use our events to promote their activities and recruit new members and sell club regalia.

These rules are subject to the discretion of the organisers, please contact if you would like to exhibit but do not meet the criteria.

You will then need to drive your vehicle into the concours arena for judging. Concours awards are judged between 11am and the end time of the event (between 3pm or 4pm). Concours is judged by judges representing this organisation and whose decision is final. A unique, and free, commemorative plaque is available for all vehicle exhibitors from the commentator after the award ceremony. To ensure fairness, the car of the show winner will be ineligible to win car of the show at future events in the same season.
