Hall Lane,


Event registration is now open! Limited Spaces.

Following the success of the 40th Ingatestone Classic Car Show in 2016 it is a pleasure to be holding the event once again, on Sunday July 23rd 2017, at Ingatestone Hall.

With plenty of cars we plan to also help raise money for Farleigh Hospice.

Adrian Hanwell has done an outstanding job organising this event over the past few years but has decided to pass the baton so to speak to someone more local.

Having a website will give this event a bit more visibility becuase Inagestone Hall is a truly fabulous location for a show. The picnic area by the lake with the Hall as a backdrop make for an idyllic summers day out and the walks around the grounds and lake will yeild some intersting characters (see website gallery for some clues :)

This event is free to the public with a small registration donation being requested from car owners which will buy raffle tickets and cover running/admin costs. Anything left over will go to a good cause, Farleigh Hospice.

Alongside the array of classic cars, military vehicles, buses and more on display there will be refreshments and a raffle + some free goodies courtesy of Lanchester Insurance.

Autojumble stalls will be welcome selling a wide range of spare parts and craft stalls around the site.

I look forward to seeing you in 2017, spaces are limited in the main area so register early. Plenty of disabled parking. Please see the website for more details on accessibility.
