Warwick’s Classic Car Show is taking place on Sunday 13th August 2023.
Every year in August, the Classic Car Show comes to Warwick and this has grown to be a popular attraction on the list of Warwick’s annual events to come to town. If you are a car enthusiast, then this is a must-see event and takes place in and around the Town’s historic Market Square, with something to see for all the family. There will be around 200 pre-1990s classic, retro cars, kit cars, hot rods, vans and occasionally lorries to see and you can also relax and enjoy all the shops, pubs, cafes and museums nearby, so a great day out can be had for all the family.
The Classic cars expected to be on display range from Minis to the Model T Ford, as well as a selection of American cars and some vintage English classics.
The show itself is where you can chat with some of the car owners and find out a little bit more about the cars of a bygone age, adding to the friendly atmosphere that comes with this event. It all kicks off on the Sunday morning, from 9am onwards, closing at 4pm and it is free to come along for both the visitors and exhibitors. There is no pre-booking required to display the classic cars, you just need to come along and park up as per marshals’ instructions.
Over 200 vehicles can be viewed at this exhibition during the day, having risen from its modest beginnings in 2010. The Court Leet was asked to take over the show in 2017 because the promoters were finding the paperwork and health and safety requirements to be more challenging. The performance had a somewhat different format in 2021 as a result of the coronavirus and other factors, but it was still recognised as a huge success.
Warwick Court Leet is the organiser of this show. The Court, which assists with event logistics, is still run by Matt Phillips, who established it back in 2010. There is a committed group of volunteers who are working with the Court to marshal the event throughout the day.
You can start off in our bar and restaurant and then head off to enjoy and see what cars are on display this year.
