With over 2000 cars due to be on display at this year’s Sherborne Classic Car Show, this event should not be missed if you’re a fan of classic cars. From the pre-1985 high-performance cars to rally cars, Aston Martins and Lamborghinis, it pretty much has all the bases covered.
Read on for key information about the show and how we can assist with storing your car before or after the event.
When and where is the Sherborne Classic Car Show?
As the name suggests, the car show will take place in Sherborne, which is a small market town in North-West Dorset, with the exact location being within the grounds of the stunning Sherborne Castle, a 16th-century Tudor mansion. The show is just a 1-day event taking place on Sunday 21st July 2019.
With its breathtaking gardens and heaps of history, the castle is visited by many thousands of visitors every year and is the perfect backdrop for this well-renowned car show that is now in its 16th year!
What should I expect to see at the show?
Aside from the rows of stunning classic cars, the show has plenty of other attractions and activities to occupy the whole family during the course of the day.
If you’re looking to own a classic car for the first time or add to your existing collection, auctions will be running throughout the day in which hundreds of buyers will be ready to put their bids in before the fall of the hammer.
Top tip! If you are planning to take part in the auction, get there early! Gates open at 09:30 so this will give you the best chance of finding and bidding on the car you want to get your hands on!
Tradestands and autojumbles
If you’re not looking for a new investment, then you can simply enjoy the day browsing through the many trade stands and huge onsite autojumble.
Attractions and artisan treats
If that’s not enough, there are also plenty of additional attractions to enjoy, including live music and a craft fair, plus, a children’s area for families with younger children. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating at the show, with many choices located at the food village.
