About this event:

Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet

Known and loved by many in the scene for its friendly atmosphere, the intrigue and interest starts the minute you get through the gate with the hundreds of vehicles which pack into the classic car park. The vast array driven in by our enthusiastic visitors creates one of the most impressive collections of privately owned classic cars you’ll see anywhere in the country.

In the spacious halls of the Royal Bath & West there are a wide range of independent traders including specialist suppliers of parts, tools and vintage memorabilia, along with service providers. One of the largest areas is dedicated to a huge indoor autojumble where showgoers lose themselves for hours rummaging around the bargains in search of that rare find.

A more recent addition to the event is the Classic American Car of the Year heat, which sees a winner picked to go through to the final stages of the prestigious competition final held at the NEC Classic Motor Show in November.

And, as always, the weekend culminates in the Charterhouse Auction, where there’s always a fantastic line-up of classics waiting to go under the hammer. Visitors are free to browse through the lots on Saturday, with entry on Sunday by catalogue only.
