The Wroughton Classic Car & Bike Show – 2nd & 3rd August
Held in association with Classic Car Weekly and supporting Macmillan Cancer Support at the Science Museum, Wroughton (near Swindon).
From extremely rare vehicles specially brought out from private collections and museums to attend the show, to traditional 'classics' and novelty vehicles, there is bound to be something to appeal to just about every car & bike enthusiasts.
With over 2000 classic vehicle exhibits and more than 23,000 visitors, the 2007 show was a fantastic success. For 2008 the show is still growing and there will be a wide range of crafts and arts on offer alongside, first class food, excellent bar (real cider and real ale!!), slot car racing, adult sized pedal cars, mini Landies, Quads, bungee jumping, Autojumble, trade stalls and so much more being booked every day.
On the Sunday the show will also be hosting the newest addition to the Wroughton Classic – the 'Sodbury Sortout' which is hoped to become a regular feature of the show. Normally held at the Newbury showground the Sodbury Sortout is particularly renowned for the range of 'hard to find' parts for Land Rovers, Commercial and Vintage Agricultural Vehicles on offer and is well known and respected amongst all classic and vintage vehicle collector circles.
