Due to the depressing downpours, the Leighton Hall Classic Car and Vintage Vehicle Show, due to be held on Sunday, July 8, will be postponed until Sunday September 2 in the hope that we will have a balmy Indian Summer!
Featuring over 500 classic cars, motorcycles, stationary engines, commercials and vintage tractors, the show will also include trade stands and an autojumble for anyone looking to bag a bargain. With parades, running commentaries throughout the day, judging of the classes, competitions and prizes galore, this is a great day out for the whole family.
