Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show

6 days
left to enter

Be at the fastest growing classic car event; take a friend and enjoy a day of automotive entertainment, a celebrity talk, goody bag, gifts and more.

Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, is the fastest growing classic car event with over 21,000 visitors attending across three days. The show brings together all aspects of classic motoring, from the UK’s largest collection of ‘barn finds’, to a fantastic display of polished, stunning, unique cars.

150 Car Clubs bring the show to life with live demonstrations from panel beating and re-wiring, right through to an engine rebuild or full restoration of a car - some clubs even give visitors the chance to get their hands dirty and have a go at some mechanical work themselves. 

We’re giving away 85 pairs of VIP tickets to the Sunday of the event, so you and a car-mad companion can enjoy everything the show has to offer, with some added treats including an expert talk from Wheeler Dealers stars Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead, plus free goody bag, gloves, signed book and Practical Car Magazine. 

Classic Car and Restoration Show 

A jam-packed event with so much to see

The hub of the show is the Practical Classics Live Stage hosted by editor of Practical Classics Magazine, Danny Hopkins and his trusty Deputy James Walshe. See interviews with motoring celebrities, car parades and a three-day live restoration project which will hopefully see a car in need of a significant amount of work towed in on Friday and driven off on Sunday… if all goes to plan!

And if you’re in the market for a new classic to add to your collection, or an excuse to start your collection, you won’t to miss the classic car auction, with over 200 lots going under the hammer.
