The Footman James Classic Vehicle Restoration Show returns to the Royal Bath & West Showground this November for another instalment of celebrating all things classic and all things restoration. Whatever your budget may be or however far you are to complete your project, you will be able to find everything you need at the event.
Inside the large halls of the Showground, there will be an array of traders for visitors to visit and browse – you may even find that elusive spare part you need! On top of this, it’s a perfect opportunity to acquire tips and advice from those that know about everything to do with restoration.
It’s well-known that clubs play a big part in the Classic Vehicle Restoration Show, they often go far to ensure that they have an unusual and engaging display to attract visitors. Often clubs make their own stands, really highlighting the personality of the club and demonstrates that their skills far extend their knowledge of the classic cars bought with them!
Several clubs have attended the event since its inception – so make sure that you stay to view the coveted awards ceremony on Sunday at 4pm, where the top three clubs will be awarded a cash prize.
The Classic Vehicle Restoration Show will see Charterhouse Auctioneers and Valuers move in to the Exmoor Hall. You will be able to browse the available lots on Saturday for free, but if a vehicle catches your eye and you want to bid on it, you’ll need to buy a catalogue on Sunday from the Charterhouse staff. The catalogue itself allows entry for 2 adults and costs £10 – the auction begins at 12 noon on Sunday, so make sure you don’t miss out!
The first lot for 2019 has been announced as two MGBs! They are a pair of are tax exempt classic sports cars that date back 1971 and 1973 respectively but need a full restoration.
