CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW RETURNS TO CATTON HALL FOR MAY BANK HOLIDAY MOTORING CELEBRATION
The popular Classic Motor Show will return to Alrewas’ Catton Hall on Sunday 5th May with up to 700 vehicles on two and four wheels for enthusiasts to enjoy including pre and post war vehicles, American cars, classic motorcycles and modified motors.
Gemini Events Director Stephen Smith said: “The stunning grounds of Catton Hall create a fantastic backdrop to our annual Classic Motor Show. To see hundreds of classics all lined-up alongside the River Trent in front of Catton Hall is amazing and we can’t wait for the May Bank Holiday to arrive.”
The Classic Motor Show, sponsored by ClassicLine, will welcome 30 motoring clubs with a fantastic mix of marques from the Alfa Romeo Owners Club to Your Ford. Local groups represented including the BMW Car Club Shropshire and Mid-Wales, Derby & District MG Owners Club, Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club North Staffs, Midland Retro Car Club, and the North Staffs RS Owners.
Three clubs represent the Potteries with the Capri & Classic Ford Club, Potteries MMOC, and Potteries Vintage Classic Car Club. They’re joined by the M6 Junction 16 Motoring Club, Stoke on Trent Classic Car Club and West Midlands Mitsubishi 4x4 to name a few.
Private entries range from John Heath’s 1926 Austin Clifton to Colin Bailey’s 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.
