Why Visit

Visit The Classic Motor Show


Being the biggest of the UK's Classic Car Shows, as well as bringing together commercial vehicles, bikes and more, November is the place to be for a whole host of people, not just from this country, but from all over the world.

No matter what interest you have with classic motoring, you will find it here. Filling seven halls, each with their own unique piece of entertainment to immerse yourself in, we're sure you'll walk away having learnt a thing or two, whilst being wowed by all that's put in front of you.

Be Immersed

We have people traveling from all over the world to join us for all things classic cars and enjoy the fantastic displays.

Helping us put on such a show are the 300+ classic vehicle clubs, specialist traders and sponsors, all contributing to the massive 3,000+ motors glistening across the weekend. We try our very best so that not one vehicle you see on your visit will be the same - from chassis to body - we aim for them all to be unique in one way or another.

Be Entertained

Not only are there cars to admire, but the show also boasts brilliant show features that you can get involved with.

See some of our 2019 show features below and explore more on our Show Features page.

From restoration projects turned slick classics to timeless beauties, the Lancaster Insurance Price of Ownership competition is definitely a draw.

20 pristine classics, ranging in ages from the 1950s and before to those modern classic eras, it's a display for all.

At the heart of the show, we have the Discovery Live Stage.

It's a hub of activity, welcoming motoring celebs and insiders for interviews to give you the industry's latest insights and news as well as providing updates on sponsor projects, and giving you the chance to win with some energetic gameshows.

The stage timetable will be announced closer to November along with its host so keep an eye out. See what happened in 2018.

Car clubs are the shoestring that holds this show together. and if you need any more proof of that, detailing experts Meguiar's have their work cut out well before stepping onto NEC grounds.

In the months leading up to the show, the team splits up and looks for amazing classics on display at car clubs events. The show favourites are then invited to show off their car in November where the Meguiar's Club Showcase winner is revealed.

Part of a car club? Keep an eye out at your summer events and you could be joining them.

Do you have a classic car-shaped hole in your life? Then get yourself to the Silverstone auction on the Saturday or Sunday of the show.

A HUGE array of cars (and automobilia) will be up for sale so you could most certainly be walking away from the weekend with more than just a brilliant day out... what's your budget? There's something for everyone!

If you're looking for 'the' place to sell your car, consign your classic to the show. Entries open soon.

Be Inspired

With hundreds of clubs comes thousands of members.

We pride ourselves on the show being a friendly place for all classic car and motor enthusiasts to come together in one setting to all enjoy what they love.

A big part of that are our car club members that are always on hand and ready to advise on your marque questions. Each has their own experience and that could give you that extra little push to finish your restoration or learn something new for your maintenance regime.

The Workshop, sponsored by SkillShack is another area you have to visit. The team there is available all day, providing demonstrations for you to witness and plenty of time for you to ask all your pressing practical questions. This really is the place to go to develop your skills.

You never know, your project could go from Restoration Show to Classic Motor Show territory.

Be Wowed

These are just some of the reasons why people are wowed when they join us. 2018 saw over 71,000 visitors enter the seven halls of the NEC to enjoy the thousands of classic cars and vehicles that shone brightly across the weekend.

Everyone was just oozing of enthusiasm and that's why we love to host an event for the entire classic car community. Whether you're bonding with friends or sharing a passion and reminiscing with family, there's something for those moments right here.

2019 promises to be even bigger and better for our wonderful returning visitors and those who are new to the classic car world. Come join us!
