Officially the UK’s fastest growing classic car event, over 19,000 enthusiasts joined us for the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show 2016, bringing together all aspects of classic motoring. From barn finds discovered after many years of storage and those project cars that have stalled in an owner’s garage, to restorations just getting back on the road and those pristine marques with gleaming brightwork and proud as punch owners. If you need help and advice from our motoring experts and celebrities, want to buy the tools to do the job yourself or find a specialist restorer who can tackle the work on your behalf, this is the show for you. With cars for sale from both dealers and a sale from Classic Car Auctions, live demonstrations, and over 1,000 cars on display, don’t miss the classic motoring scene’s season opener on 31 March - 2 April 2017!

The Car Clubs

Welcome to the classic vehicle clubs with their stunning restoration and classic vehicle displays.  Classic vehicle clubs remain the life blood of the classic vehicle community. It is club members that work tirelessly to ensure these fantastic marques are not forgotten and remain on our roads as long as possible, so enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy our motoring heritage.

For 2017, the organisers have created more club stands than ever before to showcase club vehicles in everything from 'barn-finds' through to concours condition.  Many will be actively working on restoring or servicing vehicles on their stands at the show.  It's your chance to speak to real 'hands-on' experts for information and advice!
