Famous for rocking to the sound of music’s biggest names, Knebworth Park is once again the location for the 29th Annual Knebworth Classic Motor Show taking place on Sunday 25th and Bank Holiday Monday 26th August.
A fabulous bank holiday weekend of entertainment for all the family, visitors will be treated to up to 1,000 classic vehicles from cars and motorcycles to commercial and military machines. There’s plenty more, too, from parades and interviews in the live action arena to Pride of Ownership awards and a concours competition.
The famous ‘Decibel Duel’ returns this year with judges searching for the loudest engine at the show, so get ready for plenty of high-octane noise. And when it is time for a break, tickets also include entry to the Knebworth Fort and Gardens, while the Dinosaur Trail will keep younger visitors entertained.
But this popular show is all about the vast range of classic cars, and visitors to this year’s event are guaranteed an amazing selection. There really is something for every enthusiast, and those that enjoy admiring British classics are in for a real treat with everything from family models and sports cars to special marques including Jaguar, Bentley, and Aston Martin.
And those that prefer something a little bigger will certainly want to seek out the American cars on display. Alongside the classic muscle cars from Ford and Chevrolet that always draw a crowd there will be 1960s Cadillacs and a rather special 1929 Buick Master Six Sedan.
European marques are always well-represented with plenty of fascinating models from the likes of BMW, Porsche, and Mercedes, while fans of the hot hatchback can relive their youth courtesy of the VW Golf GTI, Renault 5 GT Turbo, and Peugeot 205 GTI. 2019 also marks a number of anniversaries, so you can enjoy Minis as the legendary small car celebrates its 60th birthday along with examples of the iconic Ford Capri that turns fifty this year.
And the show wouldn’t be complete without the support of enthusiastic classic car clubs, and this year is no different. Plenty of marques and models are represented, including Allard, the Triumph Stag and Ford Cortina Mk II, while the A’s of Herts, Beds & Bucks Mini Owners Club are sure to be celebrating the car’s birthday in style.
The show also incorporates the Hertfordshire Motor Show, giving visitors the opportunity to also view the latest cars from a wide selection of manufacturers in one place from the best dealers in the region.
Gates open at 10am until 4pm on both days. Admission starts from £10 for adults, those under 3 go free, and a family ticket (4 persons) is £36. Free parking for all visitors.
