Car enthusiasts invited to exhibit at classic vehicle festival

Residents / 03 Aug 2018

Classic car enthusiasts can show off their motor merchandise at this year's Peterborough Classic and Vintage Vehicle Festival.

Visitors from all over the region are expected to flock to the city's Embankment on Saturday 1 September and Sunday 2 September 2018 to admire the many shining chassis and wheeled wonders on display at the event.

Organised by Peterborough City Council, the show is now in its fifth year and is being held as part of the authority's City of Festivals programme, which features a number of large-scale events throughout 2018.

Organisers would like to hear from anyone interested in having a stall at the event. Ideally, this would suit car enthusiasts with any car-related items or merchandise, but stalls selling general items with a vintage or retro theme are also welcome.

There is also still time for anyone interested in registering a car for display at the event to sign up.

Councillor Steve Allen, Peterborough City Council's Cabinet Member for recreation, said: "This year's show is shaping up to be another fantastic fun-filled weekend, which all the family will thoroughly enjoy.

"We would now love to hear from anybody who has car-related collectables they would like to display or sell on a stall, so if this sounds like you then please get in touch."

A variety of vehicles will be on show, including classic and vintage cars and caravans, motorcycles, scooters, commercial and agricultural vehicles, buses, ex-military and other forms of transport from yesteryear to modern classics.

The event, which is free to attend, will also feature a host of shopping opportunities, hot food stalls and entertainment.

Vehicle registrations can be made on the Peterborough City Council website.
