Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show

Discounted tickets to the fastest growing classic car event, with over 150 clubs bringing three days of classic cars, live demos, celebrity talks and a classic car auction.

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.

One hundred and fifty 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. 

Classic Car and Restoration Show

Indulge a classic car hobby with a reduced Possibilities member ticket price

Whether you’re window shopping, looking to pick up some tips, just indulging a love of cars, or hoping to pick up your next four wheeled beauty, you’ll enjoy our special Possibilities member ticket offer to the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show. You can book tickets in advance, for either the Saturday or Sunday show at the discount rate of £15.30 – instead of £18.

Get your motor running for a classic car lover’s dream

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 want to miss the classic car auction, with over 200 lots going under the hammer.
