Meet the Experts Theatre

Classic Motor Show 2022

Welcome to the new Meet the Experts Theatre!
The programme is jam-packed with motoring magic and topical chats all weekend long.

Sponsored by 

  Classic Cars        Classic Car Weekly

The new Theatre will cover a whole manner of subjects from how to get started in classic motoring and using your classic for motorsport, to alternative fuels and debating restoration versus modification.

There will also be discussions about the future of the classic car community, the skills shortage, preserving our automotive heritage, and how we can attract more youngsters into classic motoring – both as a hobby and a career.

As well as the panels, there will also be interviews with special guests including World Trials Championship legend Dougie Lampkin and the stars of the new movie ‘Classic’.

There will also be a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Wheeler Dealers. Since 2003, Mike Brewer and his trusty mechanics – Edd China, Ant Anstead and currently Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestley - have restored and brought back to the road 218 cars on our screens. Mike will share his personal highlights and stories from behind the scenes each day.
