Classic Car and Restoration Show – Postponed until March 2022
June 11 @ 9:00 am - June 13 @ 5:00 pm£21
CSI didn’t think that we would have to post “postponement” messages in 2021 but we have just received this from the CC&RS PR office –
“The next outing of the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will now take place in March 2022.
The show was scheduled to take place on 11-13 June 2021 after moving from its usual March dateline. However, the recent announcement of Covid restrictions means that the show cannot be held at that time.
Event Director Lee Masters said: “We understand this will be as big of a disappointment to our exhibitors and visitors as it is to us. We have all been very much looking forward to getting back to some form of normality and ‘business as usual’.
“We are truly sorry that we have had to make this extremely difficult decision and thank all involved for their continued patience, understanding and support in these ever-changing times.”
The organisers are not planning on letting the occasion go unmarked though and are putting together an Online Edition, to be held on Saturday 27 March 2021. Celebrating all the great elements of the show, the classic car community will be invited to share their restoration stories, advice and projects through the show’s social media channels.
Classic Car Auctions is hosting its Spring Live Online sale on Friday 26 March, with the Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Sale taking place the following two days. The Practical Classics Classic Cars and Restoration Show Auction will take place “online” on 11-13 June 2021.
Lee added: “We have confidence that come the autumn, life will have returned to a more normal rhythm and we are planning the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery as usual for November.”
Tickets already purchased will automatically be carried over to the same day next year (18-20 March 22). Visitors also have the option to move their booking to the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show (11-13 November 21) or Reis Race Retro (18-20 February 22). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your request, including your ticket booking reference if you have this available.”
About Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery:
Hailed the ‘friendliest of car shows’, the show attracts over 28,000 visitors across 3 days, and brings together all aspects of classic motoring. From live restoration projects to pristine classics, walking through the halls definitely rekindles memories for visitors. It’s a weekend all about rusty barn finds, concourse quality classics and everything in between.
The heart and soul of the classic car community is without doubt car clubs, and the same goes for the show. 2019 saw over 170 car clubs grace the halls of the NEC, and visitors always have the opportunity to watch what it takes to keep our beloved classics running with all kinds of live restoration demonstrations taking place throughout the weekend.
