REGENT STREET MOTOR SHOW
TO RETURN 31 OCTOBER 2015
Huge crowds expected as free-to-view motor show prepares to take over London’s “Mile of Style”
The Regent Street Motor Show is the largest free-to-view motor show in the UK, showcasing an impressive 125 years of motoring history and taking place on London’s most iconic shopping street on Saturday 31 October; a date for the diary.
2015 promises to bring a family-friendly, highly interactive feel to the Regent Street Motor Show. Celebrating the earliest days of motoring with the pre-1905 veteran cars on display as part of the prestigious EFG International Concours d’Elegance, a stunning array of present day and yester-year cars is an exciting opportunity to get a glimpse of what the future of motoring might hold.
On the day of the Show, Regent Street will be closed to through traffic from Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus, providing a safe environment for visitors to enjoy this motoring extravaganza.
Motoring enthusiasts from around the world attend the Show each year and in 2014, 17 per cent visited from overseas while just over half the Show visitors came from closer to home, attending from the Greater London area.
“The Regent Street Motor Show is now established as a great day out for all the family, and is a real celebration of more than a century of our motoring history,” said Peter Foubister, Motoring Secretary of the Royal Automobile Club.
“The huge variety of exhibits ranging from the horseless carriages from the dawn of motoring to the cars of today and tomorrow really captures the imagination of visitors whether they have come specifically to see the show or simply catch it while out shopping. And best of all, it’s totally free!”
