Classic and Vintage Car Shows in Essex


Please be aware many events will be running on reduced visitor numbers and may well be advance tickets only, and tickets for timed entries – the days of rocking up when you want, and paying on the door may well have to wait until next year!

classiccarsmallIf you are running a classic/vintage car or related event, use our Add an Event page to get it listed (there’s no charge!). Let us know if you are happy to put your contact details on the listing, as we get lots of people with classic and vintage cars asking *us* if they can bring their car along.

If you want to take your classic/vintage car to a show, please don’t contact us, this is just our list of other people’s events! Follow our links to the show’s website and find their contact details.
