CLASSICS TO GATHER FOR FOOTMAN JAMES CLASSIC CAR SHOW

Posted by Matt Bell on 31st May 2019

The Footman James Bristol Classic Car Show is the longest-running event of its kind in the UK, having taken place on an impressive 40 occasions. Based at the Royal Bath and West Showground near Shepton Mallet on June 22-23, the family-friendly weekender will play host to a wide variety of classic cars to suit all tastes, gathered from all over the country.

As ever, the show will feature hundreds of privately-owned vehicles packed into the classic car park, with many car clubs in attendance over the weekend too. Sharing the indoor hall space will be a wide range of independent traders including specialist suppliers of parts, tools and vintage memorabilia, along with an array of service providers. One of the largest areas is dedicated to a huge indoor autojumble, where show-goers can lose themselves for hours rummaging around the bargains in search of that rare find. Back outside, visitors will have the opportunity to browse pre-loved automotive bits and bobs in an old-fashioned, car boot-style sale on the Sunday.

Younger attendees are catered for too, with the Wall of Death, children’s rides and entertainment, while those looking to make a substantial purchase can head to the Charterhouse Auction. As ever, there’s likely to be strong line-up of classics waiting to go under the hammer, with visitors free to browse through the lots on Saturday and entry on the Sunday by catalogue only.

Tickets are just £10 for an adult when purchased in advance, with 15s and under free. Advance ticket sales close at 8:30am on June 17 – see www.bristolclassiccarshows.com for more information.
