The Classic Vehicle Restoration Show
From completely untouched barn finds to pristine concours examples, The Classic Vehicle Restoration Show embraces anything and everything restoration. No matter how far through the project you are, how much budget you have, or your level of expertise, you’ll find what you need at the Royal Bath & West Showground in Shepton Mallet on November 5-6.
Classic car enthusiasts can explore a wealth of traders, jumblers and service providers showcasing their wares. It’s the perfect place to meet like-minded hobbyists and pick up advice, hints, and tips from the people who know the ins and outs of restoration like the back of their hand.
Alongside will be some of the UK’s leading car clubs exhibiting their members’ restored machines, or displaying interesting projects still a way from completion. In recent years, both trade and club exhibitors have had live restoration and maintenance tasks taking place on their stands, and this year promises to deliver even more action.
The famous classic car park will see an enormous display of visitors’ finished prized possessions and part-finished projects, too. A popular destination for club meets and rallies, this area of the show is always a highlight. All vehicles entered at the show will be eligible to win one of the many awards on offer, with a variety of prizes, trophies and rosettes up for grabs.
Wrapping up proceedings will be the traditional auction from Charterhouse. Viewing the lots is free on Saturday, but visitors will need a catalogue to gain entry on Sunday.
