Middlewich Classic Car and Bike Show Welcomes Thousands of Visitors

EXCITEMENT mounts as the vintage vehicle celebration finally takes off after being postponed due to the pandemic.

Middlewich Classic Car and Bike Show attracts thousands of visitors and supports local charities.

The annual event returns to Harbutts Field on King Street, Middlewich, on the weekend of October 2-3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Stephen Dent, who coordinates the event, said: “I am delighted. We are all looking forward to the show.

“It’s free to enter, we’re just asking people to donate to the three charities we support.

“There are a lot of devotees out there. It’s a Cheshire spectacle, but we generally attract visitors from all over Cheshire and also further north from Manchester and Blackpool.

“We hope the people of Middlewich will come and support him.”

Three community groups teamed up to run the show, which in the past was run by Middlewich City Council for around 15 years.

Beartown Classic Car Club is the main sponsor with support from the M6 ​​Junction 16 Motoring Club and members of the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club.

The show will raise funds for North West Air Ambulance Charity, Prostate Cancer UK and Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

“The idea is to raise as much money as possible for charity,” said Stephen, who hopes to show off some of his four classic cars, including a 1964 MGB Roadster, a 1972 MGB GT, a prototype MG RV8 from 1990 and a Porsche 944 S2 from 1992.

“Our sponsors were generous and paid for all the actual costs of holding the event, such as toilets and insurance.

“All we need now is good weather.”

Local charities including St Luke’s Hospice are given free stands to raise funds.

Food stalls and commercial booths will be on the exhibition grounds.

Fairground rides for children will also be on site.

Next year’s show will resume its regular dates of July 16 and 17.
