The Capel Classic Car & Bike Show

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.

A message from the chairman

Dear Friends! The 2019 show now lies ahead. The organisational wheels have started to grind. We have new faces in the committee and a reshuffle of duties and tasks with people now dedicated to 'sustainability' of the show and also a 'set-up / breakdown manager'. We have settled on Triumph as show focus and we'll try to make something special of it. Of course the improvements of last year will continue with a splendid PA System and our uprated toilets. We anticipate to have a compère this year to make the event more engaging and to hear some interesting stories from some of the exhibitors. We are looking to create a little more space in the grounds so we can host a few more exhibits and also create buffer space for queuing. Also we are looking at ways to reduce congestion in the village. Last year some of you didn't make it into the grounds due to overheating of engines. We will do our utmost to avoid this from happening again. We have introduced arrival slots to spread out the numbers arriving which should ease the flow and improve access to the grounds. Potentially we will use a 'one way' system for arrivals. All will be signposted on the day. We look forward to greeting you all again.
