If you’ve got an eye for classic car alloys then keep a look out for an exciting car event coming to the Lake District this summer.
Arriving in Cumbria On Sunday 18th June, the popular Lakes Charity Classic Vehicle Show is back. Set up and organised by a group of volunteers from Windermere and Ambleside Lions Club, the show finds its home at Grasmere Sports Field.
Over 300 of the best classic cars from all over the UK will attend the event and you’ll get to chance to see some real beauties up close. You can find a full list of all the cars booked in to make an appearance at the show on their website here – is your favourite registered?
Over the years, the charities who arrange the car show have raised thousands of pounds for local charities – and, at last year’s show, they managed to raise over £7,000. This year, they’ll be raising money for Blood Bikes Cumbria and Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue.
The show also usually features a car pull race – however, unfortunately it didn’t happen in 2016 because of bad weather, so fingers crossed for a dry one this June.
You can find all the details of this show over at lakesclassiccarshow.org.uk – tickets to attend are priced at £5 per person and £12 for the whole family (and it really looks like a great family day out!) They’ll also be variety of food, live music and a variety of competitions to take part in.
