Owners of classic cars and vehicles can get into gear and enter their pride and joy into this year’s Peterborough Classic and Vintage Vehicle Festival.
Visitors from all over the region are expected to flock to Peterborough’s Embankment on Saturday 1 September and Sunday September 2 to admire the many shining chassis and wheeled wonders on display.
Organised by Peterborough City Council, the show is now in its fifth year and is being held as part of the authority’s City of Festivals programme, which features a number of large-scale events throughout 2018.
The show is open to classic and vintage cars and caravans, motorcycles, scooters, commercial and agricultural vehicles, buses, ex-military and other forms of transport from yesteryear to modern classics.
The variety of vehicles expected to be on show range from Jaguar to Lotus, and from Chevrolet to Alfa Romeo.
Councillor Steve Allen, who is responsible for Peterborough’s City Centre Management, Tourism and Culture, said: “The Peterborough Classic and Vintage Vehicle Festival is fast becoming the must attend event for any discerning classic car owner or enthusiast in the region.
“With more than 500 vehicles at last year’s event interest in this September’s show is already high and we expect to have a fantastic range of cars and vehicles on display.
“The event is aimed at all ages, so it’s a great weekend for car enthusiasts or families wanting a fun and interesting day out.”
The event, which is free to attend, will also feature a host of shopping opportunities, hot food stalls and entertainment.
