Pay & Display 2014

As with previous years we are again running in 2014 an arena where you can pay to display your vehicle, which also gives you and your passengers entry to the “ARDINGLY VINTAGE AND CLASSIC VEHICLE SHOW”

So any of you out there with a classic vehicle manufactured before 1989, why not come along and exhibit you vehicle and enjoy the day at the show, which has many interesting attractions.

Entry is open to any car, 3 wheeler, motorcycle or commercial vehicle up to 30 cwt. pre 1989. There will be a dedicated gate just for Pay To Display exhibitors and paved roads to the display area.

Gates will open at 8 am. On the Saturday and the Sunday, and should you wish to leave before the end of the show, we will arrange gate opening times from 12 noon to allow you to leave.

Entry fee will be £12 per vehicle, (Free Programme). This will cover entry to the show for up to 2 Adults and 2 Children. (Additional adults charged at gate rate)

All vehicles must be covered by third party insurance and in a presentable condition.

No forms are required, just turn up early on the day. We look forward to seeing you and your classic vehicle in July, so come along and have a great day out.
