Haslemere Classic Car Show returns after an enforced break
After an enforced break of two years, the Haslemere Classic Car Show is back on Sunday, May 29.
This will be the 12th running of this increasingly-popular community event – which promises to be a day out for all the family, whether they are ‘car nuts’ or not.
The morning tour is for the enthusiastic owner who likes to drive their classic, not just sit in a field.
The fun drive of around 60 miles takes place in the beautiful countryside surrounding Haslemere and takes in three counties – Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire.
Following simple tulip navigation, the entrants have a halfway refreshment stop and then return to Lion Green to join in the afternoon show. The tour has become exceedingly popular with classic owners who love the opportunity to drive their pride and joy.
The afternoon show will be held on Lion Green from 12pm to 5pm.
It will be full to bursting with an array of interesting pre-1980 vehicles from exotic sports cars, elegant pre-war tourers, everyday family classics to Americana and hot rods, with entries from most of the major marques.
Many of the cars taking part will be ‘affordable’ classics but there is always a good selection of unique and special vehicles.
There is limited space on Lion Green, so only vehicles which have pre-booked and are displaying a numbered pass will be able to park at the show ground.
Two competitions will be held on the day. Car owners are encouraged to dress in period outfits to match their cars and enter the Best Dressed Car and Crew Award – and there is also a People’s Choice Award where the public gets a chance to vote for the car they would most like to take home. This year’s show is sponsored by Redh.
Alongside the cars, there will be a traditional vintage style fête with a jazz band, children’s activities, food, bar and cream teas.
The green will also be lined with quality stalls selling local produce, crafts, art, vintage and classic car products.
Public entrance to the show is free – visitors are asked to support the event by buying a programme.
Haslemere Classic Car Show organiser James Ewing said: “The day has become one of the best-loved events in the local calendar.
“It’s great that we are able to provide free entertainment for the people of Haslemere and the surrounds while still raising money for the Haslemere Festival and helping to fund other events in the local community.”
