In less than a month, the UK's premier motoring event, the British Motor Show, is…
Hundreds of cars will be on display for the Deal Classic Motor Show.
The popular event – which has been postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic – will be held this month on Saturday, May 28.
Previously staged on Walmer Green, the show will take place this year at Betteshanger Country Park, with thousands expected to attend.
A range of classic vehicles will be on display, including the Aston Martin Owners Club Area 7.
English rock bank Toploader will perform, while other highlights will include bus rides, retro stalls, kiddie rides and entertainment, refreshments and more.
Chris West, organizer of the event, said it was not possible to return the show to Walmer Green this year.
He said: “Some people are disappointed the show isn’t about Walmer Green.
“From 2009 to 2019 the Deal Classic Motor Show was on Walmer Green.
“In 2019 we had 1,027 classic vehicles and around 15,000 visitors throughout the day who had free entry to the event as it was an open public space.
“Due to Covid-19 the show did not take place in 2020, and in 2021 we had to move the show to Betteshanger Park, due to government restrictions on holding a public event in open spaces .
“This year we have not been able to secure the sponsorship we need to stage the show on Walmer Green, due to the current economic climate and local business difficulties.
“Betteshanger Park is now fully open with great attractions such as the Mining Museum and I’m very excited to be hosting the Deal Classic Motor Show there.”
The event supports the Miners History Museum and the RNLI Walmer Lifeboat.
