OhSoRetro revs up for its ninth year and organisers have teamed up with The Isle of Thanet News to give away three family passes to the event.

Held on September 25 at Palm Bay Rec, there will be more than 1,500 classic and retro vehicles on show as well as 50 club stands and some 20 show and shine awards plus trade and autojumble, live music from 10am to 3.30pm and entertainment.

Since it was first launched in 2014 by VW enthusiast Lee Collier the show has grown in strength, attracting thousands of people to view the vehicles and enjoy the family fun.

The OhSoRetro show takes place at The Rec in Palm Bay Avenue on Sunday, September 25, 10am until 4pm.

Entry is £10 on the gate. Under 16s go free with a full paying adult.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

There is disabled parking on the first part of the show field. Show your blue badge to a marshal on arrival. The green opposite is also available for all day public parking for a £2 donation which will go to charity.

Show and Shine awards and raffle are drawn at 3.30pm. All proceeds from the raffle go to the 1st Margate Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade.

For a chance to win a family pass email [email protected] with your name, full address and phone number.

Winners will be picked at random and passes will be sent by the organisers via Royal Mail. If passes do not arrive in time, staff on the gate will also have winners’ names and details to allow access.

Please put OhSoRetro in the email subject line. Entries close at 5pm on Saturday, September 17.
