Classic Nostalgia returns once again on 16-17th July 2016, this annual event is rapidly becoming a firm favourite on the racing calendar, with the vintage inspired weekend offering an action packed day out for all the family!
Classic Nostalgia makes a welcome return to the Midland Automobile Club's Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb on the 16-17 July 2016. The action-packed weekend always attracts a very a wide variety of pre 1980s competition cars competing on the historic hill climb course, plus features spectacular static vehicle displays, trade stands and vintage-inspired entertainment from musicians, live bands to show dancers and even an aerobatic display (both days weather permitting).
The Courtyard stage plays host to non-stop music throughout the weekend celebrating music and dance from the 1940s, 1950s to modern classics. On the Saturday My Favourite Things, The UK's No.1 Vintage Sister Duo will perform throughout the day music from the vintage era of the 1930s – 1950s. On the Sunday Sam and his Sax will have the whole place Rocking as he belts out 1950s Rock and Roll classics, plus we welcome the return of the glamourous songstress Lola Lamour , often referred to as Britain’s most authentic 1940s singer will have you transfixed as she graces the stage with her ‘Hollywood Screen Siren’ presence.
Sunday sees the annual Street Concours open for cars built before 1982, the Concours is once again kindly sponsored by Classic & Sports Car magazine and is open to the first 100 entries through the gate before 12 noon and is judged by motoring journalist and regular Shelsley Walsh competitor, Simon Taylor and James Page from Classic & Sports Car Magazine. There is no charge to enter the Concours but cars must be driven through the entry gate, no trailers please!. The overall winner of the Concours receives a silver salver and is invited to display the vehicle on the Club's stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show in November.
Visitors are also encouraged to wear period dress; this year the Vintage Fashion Competition will be sponsored by Holden Vintage & Classic, a gift voucher will be awarded in the Courtyard by Holden on the Sunday at 4pm for the best vintage outfit.

Visiting Car Clubs:
We will be allocating dedicated car club areas and signage onsite, based on 10 cars or more. You would be welcome to erect a gazebo and display flagpoles etc. If for any reason the club doesn’t reach 10 car quota, then there will be a general ‘classic car’ section.
We are currently organising a third parting ticketing company to manage online bookings, which will be set up shortly. It will enable car club visitors to enter a car club reference code provided, which will be dedicated to your club, and enable them to pay and print their own entry tickets out electronically. They can tick a box to obtain a car club parking pass (and will be provided subject to review i.e. they will be checked that it’s genuine).
