The ClassicLine team are looking forward to a day of classic cars and family entertainment at the Beaumanor Hall Nostalgia Show on Sunday 29th September 2019. With more than 500 fascinating vehicles spanning 90 years, we are looking forward to enjoying great car show set in 34 acres of Leicestershire countryside.

As the headline sponsor of Gemini Events, Classic Motor Shows, we are looking forward to seeing all the car clubs who are attending. Read our quick guide to what else you can expect to see…

Talk to the team…

Our insurance experts will be at the show all day and on hand to answer all your questions. So, whether you would like to find out more about cover for your classic, retro or modified vehicle; or would like to chat to our team about how we can support your car club, we would be more than happy to help.

You can even pick up a few freebies too!

Expect to see…

A dozen clubs will be attending, including the Jowett Car Club which was formed in 1923 and is claimed to be the oldest one-make car club in the world.

There is plenty more to admire with owners bringing along a wealth of classic British favourites from the likes of Ford, MG, Jaguar and Triumph. If you enjoy something a bit older, you won’t want to miss the 1923 Ford Model T and charming 1935 Austin Ruby.

Those that prefer their classic with a more European flavour will be spoilt for choice, too, thanks to a range of superb models from the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz, along with an exciting array of Porsches from a 914/4 to a 911 SC.

Helping to celebrate some notable marque and model anniversaries, visitors will certainly appreciate the likes of the Citroen Traction Avant, Fiat 500, and Ford Capri. Fans of performance cars are also in for a treat, with the more modern classics including a Ford Sierra Cosworth 500, 1998 Lotus Esprit, and a number of TVRs all of which are guaranteed to grab the attention of young and old enthusiasts alike.

Summer also means plenty of drop-tops on show, including favourites such as the Volkswagen Golf and Beetle and a rather-rarer Rover Metro Cabriolet.

Take part in…

There will be Daily Driver and Pride of Ownership competitions, with the overall winner receiving a year’s free car insurance from ClassicLine at the end of the show season. The annual Concours also culminates in the ‘Best in Show’ award to close the show.

The show also features a trader village and autojumble so not only can you see fantastic cars, but you may find the parts, spares and tools you need to keep them on the road!

It all adds up to a great way to spend a summer Sunday, but it is not just about the cars. Beaumanor Hall itself has a fascinating history – including acting as a secret listening station during WW2 – and you can book a tour of the Hall to find out more. And be sure not to miss the live music, with talented vintage singer Carrie-Anne entertaining visitors with hits from the 1940s, 1950s and the present.

Hope to see you there!
