Ticket Application

Classics on the Common
Wednesday 24th July 2024

Ticket Application

We invite you to join us for our 30th show. The minimum fee of £12 for cars has been held for the seventh year. We hope again to have a number of autojumble stands.

Entry Fees

£12 for entry at 2.00pm – cars 25 years or older
£17 for entry at 11.30am – cars 25 years or older
£17 for entry at 11.30am – cars admitted at Organisers’ discretion, less than 25 years old
£8 – Motorcycles and scooters (any age) – Entry permitted from 11.30am

NB: Cars, motorcycles and scooters registered in 1930 or earlier are FREE OF CHARGE but you must complete and send us the ticket application form.

Substitute Vehicles

Your ticket will display your vehicle’s registration number. If you need to come in a substitute qualifying vehicle, you must provide full details, including registration number, in advance, by emailing tickets@classicsonthecommon.com or by writing to Classics on the Common, 67 High Street, Harpenden AL5 2SL. DO NOT alter the registration number on your ticket. If a substitute vehicle does not meet the minimum age requirement a spectator car park must be used. Online tickets will be scanned on entry to the event to confirm validity.

Start Time

Start time will be 2.00pm unless you have an early entry ticket in which case you will be allowed on the Common from 11.30am. We also request that you stay on the Common until at least 6.00pm. This is to minimize congestion as vehicles arrive throughout the afternoon. Motorcycles and scooters will be allowed on the Common from 11.30am.

Harpenden Town Council has asked us to remind you that barbecues are not permitted on the Common and, for space considerations, no gazebos are allowed.

Motorcycles and Scooters

Motorcycles and Scooters   There is no age qualification for motorcycles and scooters but you will need to book in advance. Please note: no tickets will be available on the day of the event and anyone arriving without a ticket will not be admitted. However, if there are spaces available on the day, motorcycles and scooters (any age) will be admitted for a donation of £10. 

Sale of tickets

No tickets will be sold after Friday 19th July 2024.


Thanks to the generosity of car and bike owners, spectators, our advertisers and sponsors, our last event raised £34,000 for charity. A helpful slice of that came from Gift Aid and we encourage you to tick the box on the application form for any donations over the minima.
