Once a year, Harpenden Common comes alive for half a day with more than 1000 classics cars, motor cycles and scooters. There you’ll find a Chevy Bel Air rubbing shoulders with a 1927 Trojan, and a rare 1978 Matra Bagheera with a1959 Berliet. Plus 10,000 admiring spectators.
Little wonder Classics on the Common, already Britain’s biggest mid-week classic car show, now ranks among the top events in the classics calendar. Charities benefit, too. Last year’s show raised £33,000 for local, national and international charities.
To exhibit your classic vehicle, motorcycle or scooter you must book in advance. Your exhibit must be at least 22 years old, unless it is a motor cycle or scooter. but all vehicles must be pre-booked. Go to NEWS for more details.
The event runs from 2pm till dusk.
The show raised £33,000 for charity in 2015. The main beneficiaries were Spotlight on Africa,Herts Action on Disability, Keech Children's Hospice and Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The organisers, Rotary in Harpenden, thank all who support the event so generously.
The organisers are very grateful to the management of Fairview New Homes Limited for allowing parking facilities on the site of the former Harpenden House Hotel during Classics on the Common last year.
