Classic Ford Show
Classic Ford Show is BACK for 2022 at its new home at the South of England Showground. With a change of location, Classic Ford Show may look a bit different in 2022 but will still bring together those who are mad about all things Blue Oval.
As always we will have some top displays from the editor of Classic Ford magazine, a range of products for you to browse in the retail village, competitions and more! We can’t wait to welcome you back.
South of England Showground
10:00 – 17:00
If you had purchased tickets for the 2020 event your booking will be automatically carried forward into 2022, you do not need to do anything and will receive an email from us closer to the event with your updated ticket.
We’ve pulled together some useful FAQs for you below.
FIRST UP, ABOUT THE VENUE CHANGE…
Yes, we know it’s a dramatic departure from a drag strip or a race track, but we thought for 2022 we’d try something different. For track action, there is still Ford Fair at Silverstone that takes place on Sunday 14th August.
For Classic Ford Show, The South of England Showground has a lot going for it:
- Great access, being just 20 minutes from Gatwick, 10 mins from the M23 motorway
- Lots of parking
- Excellent outside display areas
- Three superb indoor spaces, in which we hope to curate some of the very best displays of classic Fords
- The ability to arrive at a time of your convenience throughout Saturday, camp over on site
- We will be laying on some evening entertainment on the Saturday
- We’re working on some plans for live action at the event, and will keep you updated
