In light of the current COVID-19 situation our kick start to the show season has now been postponed until the 26th – 29th March 2021. Whilst we’ll miss the show that launched it all for us, it’s completely for the right reasons. Clarion, the event organiser had the following to say:
As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will now be postponed to 26-28 March 2021.
Everyone involved in putting the show together is extremely disappointed that the ultimate restoration experience will not be brought to the community this year. However, the health and well-being of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is of the upmost importance. With the government’s roadmap suggesting that restrictions on movement will still be in place for some time, it is therefore the right decision for us to cease planning for an event of this size and importance in August.
We will now be putting all our efforts into delivering an extra special restoration show in 2021 and a fantastic meeting of the community for our flagship event, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, in November. Clarion Events is working with other event organisers, venues and government to develop guidelines on how to deliver the best versions of our events while ensuring the health and safety of all involved. We will update you further on the measures we are putting in place in due course.
We really appreciate the ongoing support that so many clubs give to the show and it is with great regret that the current situation necessitates another change of plan. We look forwards to the time when we can enjoy our classics again without concern or disruption.
We’re looking forward to dusting off our tools in 2021, and we’ll be reaching out to the community nearer the time to put on an amazing display!
