    • It was £5 last year.

      £5 entry and all those cars on show, free entertainment and music is a bargain. A well organised event and all for a fiver. They do have to pay the council, emergency services and any other permits they need. Come along and then let me know what other events you can get in for £5 that gives you all this?

    • This is the best value car show period.I have been to most car shows over the summer the last one costing twice as much with only 20% of the cars.
      This show is a breath of fresh air with any modest profit goes to helping the local girls and boys brigade which is a lovely touch.
      I have attended this show every year and it has the friendliest atmosphere with the greatest diversity of cars vans bikes scooters and clubs from all over Europe.
      It’s a credit to the organisers I can’t wait it will be awesome.
