The Show

The Capel Classic Car & Bike Show

The Capel Classic Car & Bike Show takes place every year on the 3rd Saturday of August. From humble beginnings in the early 90's it has now become one of the most anticipated shows in the season of Classic Shows.

The show opens to the public at 12 noon and runs until 5pm. Entry Fee to the entire show £5/pp. Children under 12 go free.

Auto Jumble

The Auto Jumble sale has its own attraction and is now inseparable from the show. We are trying to get in as many stalls as space permits. Want to have a stall or pitch? Please follow this link and register.

Annual Flower Show

This year in its 125th year, the Summer Show is always on the 3rd Saturday in August, sited on Capel Recreation Ground, it runs alongside the Capel Classic Car Show. The Grand Marquee is surrounded by a traditional village fete with fabulous food and drink offerings, including delicious teas. As well as a Fun Dog Show there are hobby and handicraft displays and exhibitors selling home-made produce, crafts and plants. Please have a look at the Capel Show website.

A message from the chairman

The Capel Classic Car Bike Show is a splendid opportunity for the village to meet and show ourselves at our best. It has been my privilege to chair the committee since 2016, having taken over from Andrew Forsyth who had honour for 10 years before that. As the show combines with the Horticultural Society Summer Show it has become the largest village fair in Surrey. This puts extra responsibilities on the organising committees to make sure everything keeps running as smoothly as possible. To find out how we did, we ran a short survey after the last show and the feedback was quite humbling: the average score of all respondents saying whether they would recommend the show to their friends was 9.4 on a scale of 1-10. I said humbling, but it is something we can be rightly proud of too! The 2018 show will be even better.
