Over 1000 cars set for Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival
Eighth Rotary Club fundraiser to feature huge field of historic cars and motorcycles – and it’s all to raise money for local charities
More than 1000 classic cars and a further 200 old motorcycles will feature at this year’s Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival, the eighth time the Rotary Club fundraiser has been held.
It’s been confirmed for Sunday 19 August, at the 54-acre Tewkesbury School playing fields. The vehicles on display will span from pre-war models through to post-war American sports cars and hot rods.
Each year the Rotary Club holds the event to raise money for local charities, with more than £100,000 having been donated since the show began. The Midlands Air Ambulance Charity will again be one of the beneficiaries in 2018. The festival will also serve as an operational base for the crew on the day.
Displaying a vehicle at the event costs £5. It must be over 25 years old, or else of special interest such as exotic sports cars or limited-run models. At least 110 trade stands have also been confirmed.
Gates open at 11am for the public, with cars arriving on the day from 9.30am. For more information, visit the Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival website here.
