Gemini Events, building on their highly popular series of established classic car shows in the south of England, has acquired the Midlands show portfolio of Geoff and Linda Price's Transtar Promotions. The move comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of Stately Solutions' shows at Wentworth Woodhouse, near Sheffield.
Transtar Promotions has run classic car events for over 40 years and the deal sees Gemini Events taking over shows at Weston Park, Catton Hall, Ragley Hall, Trentham Gardens, Walsall Arboretum, Beaumanor Hall, Shugborough Hall and Himley Hall.
Geoff and Linda Price, who are retiring from organising classic car shows but will continue with their Toy and Train collectors' fairs at Walsall Wood, said: 'We feel that Gemini has the drive, enthusiasm, ambition and new ideas for the events to continue to grow for many years.'
Gemini's events director, Stephen Smith is delighted by the prospect of building on Transtar's success. ‘We pride ourselves on putting together great classic events at classic venues and are looking forward to meeting vehicle owners and trade exhibitors in the Midlands. We are a family run business as well and the future development of the shows will maintain the personal touches that are so important in making these events immensely enjoyable for enthusiasts and the public.'
